The area of Kemayoran used to be the former area of the Kemayoran International Airport. This Airport is the first International Airport in Indonesia. First built in 1934 and officially began operations on July 8, 1940. Till 1942, the airport is managed by the Dutch airline company, namely Koninklijke Nederlandsch-Indische Luchtvaart Maatschappij (KNILM).
