We have updated the passenger statistics at the Jakarta Airport (Soekarno-Hatta) Indonesia with official figures from the Airport Authorities recently.
In 2008, whereby the passenger figures were only 32.24mil, there was a whooping 15%increment to 37.14mil in 2009 for the Soekarno-Hatta Jakarta Airport . This was almost at par with the Singapore Changi Airport which was ranked the World’s 21st busiest Airport with the Jakarta Airport (Soekarno-Hatta) a close 22nd busiest Airport in the World.
As of June in 2010, Jakarta Airport (Soekarno-Hatta) is now the 15th busiest Airport of the World. And with my frequent flyer’s status to a single country – I can vouch for this statistic as the queues have I have experienced have more than doubled over the last couple of months.

The growth in Indonesia is gaining strong momentum and the Bank of Indonesia (BI) has just raised its GDP growth forecast to 5.7% from 4.8% as seen in a Jakarta Post article on 2010, Sept 3. It certainly seems that Indonesia is now the new “I” or the additional “I” in the sought after emerging powerhouses of BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India and China).
Is your brand seen at the right place in this nation of 227mil?
