Indonesia Transportation
by: Editorial Team

An extensive transportation network provides access to all but the most secluded of places in Indonesia. Flying is the most convenient way of hopping across the archipelago with a choice of flights from airports in all provincial and district capitals.

  • Airline: Garuda Indonesia is the national flag carrier, serving international as well as major domestic trunk routes. Other airlines include Merpati Nusantara, Bouraq which serves major domestic routes as well as international ones to Singapore. Lion Air, Star Air, Wings Air, Batavia, Adam Air, also domestic carriers and they complete the archipelago’s comprehensive airline network.
  • Trains: Trains are available throughout Java and in parts of Sumatra and are invariably enjoyable ways to experience the essence of the country. Comfortable, air-conditioned trains are available, particularly on those services that connect Central and East Java with the capital city of Jakarta, including the Bima Trains (via Yogyakarta and Surakarta), the Argo Bromo Anggrek (via Semarang to Surabaya) and the Parahyangan services (from Jakarta to Bandung).
  • Buses: Another convenient and relatively cheap way to travel across an island. Nearly all inter-city buses are fully air-conditioned and very comfortable, often only stopping for food and fuel. Cars and taxis can be hired of course, and provide perfect opportunities to get off the beaten track and explore independently. An enormous variety of public transport can be found in the towns and cities.
  • Ferries & Ships: PELNI, the state-owned shipping company now has 30 modern ships, serving all main ports in this archipelago of over 17,000 islands. Regular ferries make island hopping easy and also provide some unique opportunities to experience the beauty of these tropical islands.
