Book Flights to: Padang, Sumatra, Indonesia; Minangkabau International Airport (PDG)
Your international flight should arrive at one of these airports in order to get to Padang:
1. Jakarta, Indonesia, Soekarno–Hatta International Airport (CGK)
— or —
2. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL)
From Jakarta (CGK) Fly direct to Padang (PDG) with Garuda Airlines or with Lion Air.
From Kuala Lumpur (KUL) Fly direct to Padang (PDG) with www.AirAsia.com.
If you are traveling to or from Bali (DPS) domestic, we recommend flying via Jakarta (CGK), or you can also fly through KUL with Air Asia.
We do not recommend flying via Batam (BTH) from Bali to Padang with Lion Air (a later and seemingly more attractive flight), because the airline is often delayed and one can find themselves stranded in Batam, missing the ferry. A connection through Jakarta is always safest as there are many alternative flights.
If needing a night in KUL, we recommend Tune Hotel located at terminal 2 www.klairporthotel.com/tune-hotel-klia2/.
Once you arrive to PDG airport we will pick you up and handle everything from there!
