Indonesian Airports Guide
Indonesia presents a unique challenge to the traveler. It consists of more than 10,000 inhabited islands spread across about 3,000 miles of ocean from the Asian mainland well into the Pacific. A tradition of trade stretching back nearly 1,000 years has given the many islands a diverse set of cultures to explore. For more information on where to go and what to see, browse the Asia for Visitors guide to Indonesia.
Although there are actually several international airports in Indonesia, most tourists coming by air enter through either Jakarta or Bali. Many international carriers service one or both destinations. Additional cities can be reached by air from Singapore, where flights are often cheaper. You may be well served to get the cheapest flight you can to Singapore, then book onward travel from there.
If connecting to or from domestic flights and international routes, be advised that almost all of Indonesia's domestic carriers are notoriously late. Allow yourself a long layover where necessary.
Among the most-visited domestic airport by foreign tourists is Adisucipto International Airport in Yogyakarta. The Central Java city is the main base from which to explore the remains of the ancient Javan empires, such as Borobodur and the Prambanan.
