Airport is a vital subsystem in the air transport system which has an important and strategic
role in smoothening air traffic, so that an airport must be designed to be always ready in all
situations and conditions to serve airline flights securely, orderly, smoothly, and quickly.
The frequent delay faced by Indonesian domestic scheduled airlines is not fully caused
by internal factor of the companies. Instead, it can be caused by the airport factor. The
problems faced by airports in Indonesia which have impacts on the performance of flight
punctuality among other things are capacity, slot time, quality of flight navigation devices,
accessibility, professionalism of airport and ATC human resources, infrastructure,
facilities, equipment, and the human resources handling security and safety of flights in
airport. This article recommends that an in-depth study should be carried out to map the
interrelations between the airport factor in the flight delay related to facilities integration
and the airport authority in the flight activities in Indonesia.
