According to data from Airport Council International, Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport was the world's tenth most visited airport in 2012. It is the first time for an Indonesian airport to reach the top ten of most visited airports. However, robust growth in passengers in recent years resulted in overcapacity as the airport was originally built to handle an annual 22 million passengers, but had to cope with 57.7 million passengers in 2012.
Overcapacity made airport operator Angkasa Pura II decide to enlarge the airport, which is currently being carried out. Passengers at Soekarno-Hatta jumped from 43.7 million in 2010, to 51.1 million in 2011, and 57.7 in 2012. Indonesia has one of the fastest-growing air travel industries worldwide.
