TRIBUNNEWS.COM - Soekarno Hatta (Soetta) Airport facilities are no less good even on par with international airports in the United States such as Los Angles International Airport (LAX) and John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) in New York.
This was said by Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy (Menparekraf) Wishnutama Kusubandio during a Work Visit to Soekarno Hatta Airport in Tangerang, Banten, Thursday (1/16/2019) night.
"This is amazing, it's good. Even I was surprised, staying at the 'touch up'. I see Soekarno Hatta airport has been very advanced in terms of technology, services and others, although it must be improved again to be compared to Changi. But Soetta is not inferior to international airports in the United States such as LAX or JFK, "he said.
Menparekraf Wishnutama also assessed that every corner and atmosphere at the airport managed by PT Angkasa Pura II had a deep impression for tourists.
"So indeed the airport is the first gate to receive tourist visits, the ambience presented here is very interesting, there are also dances that are presented. Thus providing a positive experience for tourists. The experience is also part of the tour, "he said.
Upon arrival at the international Terminal 3, Wishnutama was welcomed by PT Angkasa Pura II President Director Muhammad Awaluddin to immediately check various facilities that highlighted Indonesian culture.
Such as the availability of self-check-in, ease of the immigration process, prospective pilgrims examining places for pilgrims, autogate immigration checkpoints (TPI) to ready-to-drink water facilities in the Boarding Lounge international departures as well as the availability of souvenirs or culinary specialties of Indonesia, to other facilities.
