Terminal 3 Ultimate Soekarno Hatta Airport, Jakarta, Indonesia

On August 9, 2016  the new Terminal 3 Ultimate of Soekarno Hatta Airport, Jakarta, Indonesia was officially operated. Covering an area of around 331 metersquare, the airport serves the domestic flights only of national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia.

By the first quarter of 2017,  the Terminal 3 Ultimate is expected to  completely operate and serve all international flights.

Some constructions are still on-going in this five-floor, modern glass building. In 2017, Terminal 3 Ulitmate will serve 25 million passengers per year, which is double from the current 12 million.

Previously  Garuda Indonesia served its domestic flight passengers at Terminal 2F. Now, all domestic flights of Garuda Indonesia are served at Terminal 3 Ultimate.

How does it look like?

The food is hilariously expensive. When I eat at Changi Airport Singapore or Svarnabhumi Airport Bangkok, the food price is consistent with portion and taste, but here…

Some passengers are confused with the new arrangement in the new  Terminal 3 Ultimate.

Some passengers are confused with the new arrangement. It’s basically simpler and easier only the Terminal is new and more spacious and is in preparation.

Here is the link for Garuda Indonesia passengers who want to connect to international flights or domestic flights. https://www.garuda-indonesia.com/id/id/news-and-events/angkasa-pura-2-dan-ga-siap-melayani-penumpang-domestik-di-terminal-3.page

Just a note if you exit the Terminal and want to take DAMRI bus, there is still no mini terminal for the buses like in Terminal 2. It is just an open space without chair and shade for waiting.

Enjoy your flight!
