No matter what brings you to Indonesia, you need to get there first.

While the world is certainly getting smaller, it’s still not easy to get to far off places like this Southeast Asian country. Luckily, we did it and know a number of others who have, too. So let’s break it down and make things easy.

Main Airports in Indonesia

There’s a 99% chance you’ll be flying into one of these two airports when visiting Indonesia:

  • Jakarta’s Airport: Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport – Airport Code: CGK
  • Bali’s Airport: Denpasar Ngurah Rai Airport – Airport Code: DPS

How to Get to Indonesia From the West

You won’t be traveling by boat, bus, or train to Indonesia. Think about it – the country is a bunch of islands put together. Nope. If you want to get to Indonesia from the West, you’ll be flying. Common sense, but we wanted to make sure things were clear.

Now that we have that cleared up. Let’s dig in. How to get to Indonesia? The easiest way to get to the country depends on where you’re located. For example, someone in Germany may take a different route than someone from Colorado.

Indonesia is a far off destination. If you’re not in Asia already, it’ll be difficult to get there. However, it’s definitely doable with a little planning. Flight times from New York to Indonesia (both Jakarta and Bali) take around 23 hours. From London, you’re looking at around 17 hours to either city.

Talk about a lot of travel time.

If you’re in the United States, the best airports to get to Indonesia include Los Angeles, SanFrancisco, and Seattle. All cities have flights to Indonesia on a daily basis and offer shorter travel times. The prices tend to be cheaper, too.

Roundtrip flights from the United States to Indonesia seem to run between $500-800 USD on average. LAX seems to be the cheapest airport.

How to Get to Indonesia From Asian Countries

If you’re already in Asia, then getting to Indonesia is a cakewalk. There are a number of budget airlines in the region that connect all major cities. If you’re in certain countries, then you can cross by land or boat. Although we don’t exactly recommend that in most situations, as flights are so cheap and plentiful.

With all the airlines in Asia these days, getting from Bangkok to Jakarta is pretty damn easy. We suggest checking out these airlines if you’re looking to get to Bali or Jakarta while already in Asia:

  • Air Asia
  • Tiger Air
  • Scoot
  • Thai Lion Air

Flights can be found for as little as $50 USD one way, but prices typically hover around $80 per flight. If you frequently are traveling in the region, then we highly recommend looking into “all you can fly” monthly passes by carriers like Air Asia, too.
