Lion Air spreads its ample wings at Jakarta airport moving a third of its departures to a new sub-terminal.
Lion Air today began operating a part of its Jakarta fleet from Terminal 1B at Soekarno-Hatta (Jakarta) airport.
Of Lion Air’s 143 flights a day out of Jakarta 63 will now depart from Terminal 1B, those going to cities on mainland Sumatra, as well as Batam and Pangkal Pinang, and to Palangkaraya in Central Kalimantan, while the remainder of Lion’s flights will continue to leave from Terminal 1A.
At Terminal 1B Lion Air has its own dedicated check-in counters and boarding gates with the company’s director Edward Sirait saying the partial move to Terminal 1B was because 1A had become too crowded.

I arrive to the airport terminal 2 with international flight, 10 november at 19h30. Is it possible to buy a ticket Jakarta-Medan (11 november at 5h00), in the airport at your counter when i am arrived ? Is it open at this time ?
Thank you by advance.
Yes, Lion Air’s customer service/ticket window will still be open then. Lion Air has a few flights departing late/overnight to Jayapura (22:45), Ambon (01:30), Manado (01:30), Bali (04:30) etc.
The majority of flights depart from Terminal 1A, so if you can’t find anyone at 1B, try 1A; it is a 5-minute walk. Coming from international Terminal 2, you will need to take the free inter-terminal bus.
Looking at Lion Air’s website, it appears unlikely that the flight will sell out, but – just in case – a plan B would be Mandala Air (Terminal 3). Mandala also has an early morning flight to Medan at 04:30.
You will need to pay cash; as explained here, there are many choices of ATM in Terminal 2.

if i use my son credit card to purchase ticket his not flying with me any problem come up at airpot.
If you book on the Lion Air website, the cardholder must be a passenger.
You must produce the card used when purchasing the ticket during check in at the airport, or you may be denied entry on the plane.
We also answer a similar question on the FAQ page:
1. An airline website says I must present the credit card used to make the payment when checking in, but what if I pay with Paypal?
This requirement only applies for credit card sales made directly through the airline’s website, not via travel agents. For the record, we pay the airlines for the tickets by bank transfer, not by credit card.
