CGK is said to have received the recognition as a result of its plans to undergo major changes over the next five years, which is set to cost around Rp 30 trillion (US$22.2 billion), in a bid to reach a five-star status and become an international transit hub.


“There is dynamic growth continuing all across the Asia-Pacific region as more and more new air markets are opened. It is equally impressive that Soekarno-Hatta is maintaining high levels of connectivity whilst undergoing extensive development of the terminal infrastructure. Demand within and to/from Indonesia continues to be strong so there is a clear challenge for the airport to keep pace," said OAG product management EVP Mark Clarkson in a press release.
