The planned expansion of Soekarno-Hatta II Airport in Tangerang Regency, Banten, is considered the right step.
In addition to increasing the number of trips and services to the community, airport expansion also has an impact on the region.
In addition, the construction of the airport can also reduce the density of passengers who continue to increase each year.
The expansion of Soekarno-Hatta Airport will be built on reclaimed land planned to begin in 2020.
Based on a study by Angkasa Pura II, 2,000 hectares of land are needed and an investment of Rp 100 trillion is needed for the expansion of Soekarno-Hatta Airport.
The expansion of the airport which has been operating since 1985 was carried out to increase passenger capacity which is predicted to reach 100 million passengers by 2024, from 63 million passengers in 2017.
