Batik Air (ID, Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta) and its parent Lion Air (JT, Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta) will move all of their respective flights from Yogyakarta Adisutjipto to Yogyakarta Int'l (YIA) on March 29, according to a post on the airline's official Facebook account. Both airlines already offer limited services from the new airport which opened last year and is situated over 40 kilometres from downtown Yogyakarta. In contrast, overcrowded Adisutjipto is around nine kilometres from the city centre.

The two airline's currently command over 37% of weekly seats at Adisutjipto, according to the ch-aviation capacities module. Lion Air operates 123 weekly frequencies to 11 domestic destinations and is presently the low-cost carrier's tenth most important facility in terms of capacity. Batik Air offers 63 weekly flights from the airport, and it is the airline's eighth-largest operation.

Both carriers offer three domestic destinations from the new airport, with Lion Air operating to Pontianak, Medan Kuala Namu, and Makassar and Batik Air flying to Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta, Palangkaraya, and Samarinda Tumenggung Pranoto. The only other airline currently flying from YIA is Citilink (QG, Surabaya), which operated the first scheduled services from the airport last May.

Batik Air operates a fleet of 59 aircraft, which includes 44 A320-200s, one A320-200neo, one A330-300, six B737-800s, and six B737-900(ER)s. Parent company Lion Air's fleet is more than twice the size, boasting four A330-300s, two A330-900s, thirty-eight B737-800s, sixty-three B737-900(ER)s as well as ten grounded B737-8s and four B737-9s.

Sriwijaya Air (SJ, Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta) will also move its operations to YIA from March 29 based on ch-aviation analysis of the carrier's schedule data. It currently operates daily B737-800 services from Adisutjipto to each of Bandar Lampung, Berau (via Balikpapan), and Makassar.
