Aside from commercial scheduled flights, this airport is also used for military, private and presidential purposes. The airport is used for corporate aviation with frequent arrivals and departures of corporate aircraft both domestically and internationally. About 5.6 million passengers used the airport in 2016.


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

In the 1960s, it was also known as the Halim Perdana Kusumah Air Force Base, and before that it was known as Tjililitan Airport or Tjililitan Airfield (Dutch: Vliegveld Tjililitan), after its borough.

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, general aviation, and flying school base for the next 29 years. In the 1990s the Directorate General of Civil Aviation mandated that Halim would serve non-scheduled flights, as well as scheduled flights with aircraft under 100 passengers capacity.

To ease congestion at Soekarno–Hatta, the Halim airport authority has announced[when?] that it will give 60 flight slots per hour for scheduled flights and, for the first time, the 2013 Haj pilgrims used this airport.[4] Since 2014, the airport has served domestic scheduled flights with a capacity up to 2.2 million passengers per year from about 200,000 passengers in 2013.[5]

An express train has been planned to connect the two airports.[6] Batik Air was the largest user, taking 32 slots from 74 slots available for all airlines a day.[7]

SHIA to HPIA express rail linkEdit

The feasibility study of an airport-to-airport Express Train has been finished and ready for prequalification offering. The Express Train initial plan is from Soekarno–Hatta International Airport (SHIA) to Manggarai, but to realize needs of transportation from Halim Perdanakusuma Airport (HPA), the route is extended from Manggarai to HPA. The route will stretch 33 kilometers, from Halim-Cawang-Manggarai-Tanah Abang-Sudirman-Pluit-Terminal 2&3 SHIA, on surface, underground and elevated, and has been agreed by Peraturan Menteri Nomor 1264 Tahun 2013 of Transportation Ministry. The Express Train takes 30 minutes to travel between two airports instead of a 1 to 3 hours drive.[11] In September 2019, then Minister of State Owned Eterprises Rini Soemarno confirmed that the ongoing Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Rail project will also include a light rail station that is integrated with the HSR station,[12] therefore providing connection between two airports via Greater Jakarta LRT and Soekarno–Hatta Airport Rail Link.
