Electric Taxis Start to Operate at the Arrival Area of Terminal 3 of Soetta Airport

01 Jun 2019

TRIBUNNEWS.COM, JAKARTA - PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) in synergy with private transportation company PT Blue Bird Tbk presents an electric taxi service in the arrival area of ‚Äč‚ÄčTerminal 3, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Cengkareng, Tangerang, Banten.

The President Director of Angkasa Pura II, Muhammad Awaluddin, said that the operation of the Blue Bird electric taxi increasingly emphasized the concept of eco airport in Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta.
"The existence of the Blue Bird electric taxi certainly makes Terminal 3 increasingly known as an eco airport, while increasing the competitiveness and image of Soekarno-Hatta Airport. We believe this electric taxi also makes airport service standards increase to a higher level, especially in the public transportation sector, "Awaludin said, in a written statement on Friday (05/31/2019).

As for now Terminal 3 has implemented the Intelligence Building Management System, where this technology keeps Terminal 3 operating as an eco airport by regulating water expenditure, electricity usage, and so on.

Another system is a rain water system that can use rainwater to be used as clean water. Terminal 3 also has a recycle water system technology that is able to treat toilet water to return to toilet water so that it can save water consumption.

While PT Blue Bird Tbk's Managing Director Noni Purnomo said he was proud to be together with Angkasa Pura II to introduce Bluebird electric vehicles to the public and offer a unique experience in traveling with electric vehicles.

"This collaboration can be realized along with the common vision between the two companies in supporting environmental sustainability, which starts from a small step. We hope that with our electric taxi fleet at Terminal 3 of Soekarno Hatta Airport, it can be Bluebird's support for the implementation carried out by Angkasa Pura II in making Soekarno-Hatta International Airport as an Eco Airport. "Noni added.
Earlier at the end of April 2019, Blue Bird had launched a car with electric power as its newest fleet for Bluebird and Silverbird services, namely BYD e6 A / T and Tesla Model X 75D A / T.

Bluebird plans to be able to operate as many as 200 electric cars until 2020, where the company will be able to eliminate 434,095 kg of CO2 emissions or fuel consumption of 1,898,182 liters.
