Adisucipto International Airport (JOG) Information
(Yogyakarta, Central Java, Indonesia)
Adisucipto International Airport is a small air hub serving the Yogyakarta Special Region of central Java. It is also a gateway to the historic Prambanan temple site and the cultural glories of the region, expressed in the area's famous, traditional Javanese batik, music, dance, poetry, fine art and puppetry. After Bali, Yogyakarta is the most-visited of all Indonesian destinations, with most visitors arriving at Adisucipto International Airport.
The facility became an international air hub as recently as 2004, although local geographic events were less than kind to it for the following six years. In 2006, an earthquake badly damaged its facilities, causing a brief closure and the subsequent construction of a new Domestic Terminal. In 2010, the eruption of a nearby volcano sent volumes of ash into the air, disrupting flights. Of note, international flights from Yogyakarta were discontinued in 2006 due to lack of interest, but reopened in 2008 with AirAsia's Kuala Lumpur service.
Nowadays, the facility offers flights to Singapore, as well as an expanded Kuala Lumpur service (both provided by AirAsia), plus a good number of domestic and regional flights operated by national airline Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air and several budget carriers. More than four million passengers now use this airport every year, resulting in frequent upgrades to its amenities.
