As more and more aviation-oriented businesses are being drawn to airports and cities along with transportation corridors radiating from them, a new urban form is emerging -- The Aerotropolis -- stretching up to 20 miles (30 kilometers) outwards from some airports. Aerotropolis; a combination of giant airport, a planned city, a shipping facility, and a business hub. This paper is aimed to explain the aerotropolis business model at Kertajati International Airport and to suggest that the aforementioned airport practice the eco-airport concept. In this study, the method used was qualitative, in which the factors around the proximity of Kertajati International Airport influence the nature of the airport operations. Journals and articles were reviewed as references for this research. Based on the results of this study, it is suggested that there are four main critical factors for the development of an aerotropolis and that the importance of implementing the eco-airport concept has been identified.
