Soekarno-Hatta International Airport has an important role as the main gate to Indonesia, especially to Jakarta. It’s located at Tangerang, Banten Province, 20km away from Jakarta. Jakarta still has another airport which is Halim Perdanakusuma Airport with limited function to serve state and military affairs flight. There’re two main terminals at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Terminal One serves all domestic flight except the flight by Garuda Indonesia and Merpati Nusantara Airlines, and Terminal Two serves all international flights as well as domestic flights by Garuda Indonesia and Merpati Nusantara Airlines. Terminal One and Terminal Two occupied a different building which are separated one another, and therefore the management of Soekarno-Hatta Airport provides shuttle bus for free as a transportation facility between both terminals.
