***Medan Have new Airport now, Kuala Namu (AITA Code KNO) since July 2013 which replace the Old Polonia Airport Medan MES )
There are DAMRI Bus Service to Medan City IRD10,000-15,000
I have not been travelled to KNO yet


The Airport is located very near to the city (in fact with in the city) most hotels can be reached with in 15 minutes max by Taxi or by the Becak, you need to do is avoid the Taxi Company Agents come out from the terminal parking lot, walk a little and cross the street infront you will find Motor Becaks standing. It cost cheaper then airport taxi (IDR10,000 to 15,000) while Taxi company have fixed charges over IDR45,000.

Domestic and International Arrivals are handled with in same terminal since the Original Domestic Terminal was destroyed because of fire. All terminals are adjacent and only few minutes walk away from each other.

Motorcycles (Ojeks) also available if you dont have heavy or large size luggage.

On my return from Medan I walked to the airport from my accommodation, it took less then 15 minutes.
