It was a military airbase possessed by the TNI (Armed Forces of Indonesia) before 1966 when the airport was declared available for national commercial flights, besides as an airbase for the Indonesian Army. The airport is at the coastal region of Maron shore in West Semarang district, which can be prone to flood and abrasion. There are ponds around the compound, and mangroves will be planted across the coastline consistent with the green airport notion that was scheduled to be finished by June 2013.  

The region is often called Kalibanteng. Therefore it had been commonly called Kalibanteng Airbase previously. The title Achmad Yani was chosen to honour Indonesia’s national heroes, General Achmad Yani. PT Angkasa Pura I, Indonesia’s state enterprise of the Ministry of Transportation that oversees airports in the eastern area of the nation operates this airport. It turned into a worldwide airport with the initial flight of Garuda Indonesia to Singapore in August 2004.
