Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport (Indonesian: Bandar Udara Internasional Halim Perdanakusuma) (IATA: HLPICAO: WIHH) is located in East Jakarta in the Indonesian capital Jakarta.[1]

This airport is also used for military, private and presidential purposes. Government officials are also allowed to use it. In 2007, President of the United States George W. Bush landed at this airport on his visit to Indonesia. Former Indonesian President Suharto's hearse was airlifted to Solo in Central Java on 28 January 2008.

On January 10, 2014, Halim Perdanakusuma began to serve domestic scheduled commercial flights to ease the overloaded Soekarno–Hatta International Airport.[2] In mid-2014, Citilink is the solely scheduled airline uses the Halim Airport, while Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air and Air Asia cancelled plan to use the airport. Citilink has used 32 slots from 74 slots available for all airlines a day.[3]


This airport takes its name from Air Vice-Marshal Halim Perdanakoesoema, an Indonesian aviator. The airport is now home to a large number of turboprop, charter and general aviation companies. It is also a major air force base of the Indonesian Air Force and is home to most of its major squadron such as the 31st air squadron and the 17th VIP air squadron.

In the 1960s, the airport was also known as the Halim Perdana Kusumah Air Force Base, and before it was known as Tjililitan Airport, the borough in which it is located.

As a civilian airport, Halim Perdanakusuma was one the city's main airports, along with Kemayoran Airport, until the opening of Soekarno–Hatta International Airport in Tangerang in 1985. Until then, it served all international routes bound for Jakarta, while Kemayoran handled domestic flights. The closure of Kemayoran in 1985 meant that Halim would serve as the secondary airport of Jakarta, mostly handling charter flights as well as general aviation and flying school base for the next 29 years. In the 1990s the Directorate General of Civil Aviation mandated that Halim would only serve non-scheduled flights, as well as scheduled flights with aircraft under 100 passengers capacity.

To ease Soekarno–Hatta International Airport, the Halim airport authority has announced to give 60 flight slots per hour for scheduled flights and for the first time, the 2013 Haj pilgrims have used this airport.[4] Since 2014, the airport serves domestic schedule flights with limitation capacity up to 2.2 million passengers per year from about only 200,000 passengers in 2013 (over capacity).[5] Halim is the main airport used by corporate aviation with frequent arrivals and departures of corporate jet aircraft both domestically and internationally.

In 2014, Halim reopened for all scheduled flights as a congestion reliever for the overcrowded Soekarno–Hatta airport. An Airport Express train were planned connecting the airport to the Soekarno–Hatta International Airport. A feasibility study had been conducted on December 2013. Also, the Jakarta government planned to expand the road connecting to the airport to ease traffic in the nearby Cawang.
