Achmad Yani International Airport ( ) is the airport serving Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia. The airport used to be a military airbase owned by the TNI (Armed Forces of Indonesia) until 1966 when the airport was declared to be open for domestic commercial flights, other than as an airbase for the Indonesian Army. The airport is located in Western Semarang district, in an area commonly known as Kalibanteng, hence it was commonly known as Kalibanteng Airbase in the past. The name Achmad Yani was taken to honour one of Indonesia’s National Heroes, General Achmad Yani.

Currently, it is operated by PT Angkasa Pura I, a state enterprise of the Indonesian Department of Transport that manages airports in the eastern part of Indonesia. It became an international airport with the first international flight of Garuda Indonesia to Singapore in August 2004.
