Indonesia is well connected to the rest of the world by numerous airlines. Many international flights, especially those to Bali, stop first in Singapore due to runway restrictions at Bali.
Airports & Airlines
The principal gateways for entry to Indonesia are Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport (which is sometimes shown as Denpasar in schedules).
Both are in the midst of expansion and projects. Other airports with international links – albeit limited – include Balikpapan, Medan, Surabaya, Lombok and Manado.
