Tanjung Pandan - PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) in the near future will increase the number of airports operated.
Currently there are 16 airports operated by the company, and 3 more will be added to the airport in April or May 2019, namely: HAS Hanandjoeddin in Tanjung Pandan, Radin Inten II in Lampung, and Fatmawati Soekarno in Bengkulu.
The three airports were handed over by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation of the Ministry of Transportation to AP II through a scheme of Utilization Cooperation (KSP) of State Property Assets for 30 years.
President Director of AP II, Muhammad Awaluddin, said the cooperation pattern would save the state budget because the investment funding for the development and operation of the airport would come from AP II internal cash.
"The capital expenditure and operational expenditure of the three airports will come from AP II so that the government has the choice to use the APBN to build other infrastructure. We warmly welcome the collaboration with this KSP pattern because it can accelerate infrastructure development in Indonesia for the benefit of the community," said Muhammad Awaluddin .
"In addition, the government will also get fixed income, profit sharing, and the addition of new assets, and still have the existing assets of the airport."
The AP II itself has plans for development at the three airports.
At HAS Hanandjoeddin Airport (Tanjung Pandan) a new terminal will be built and the expansion of the existing terminal to accommodate a maximum of 6 million passengers for the next 30 years.
The existing terminal at the airport has actually also experienced a backlog. At present, the number of passenger movements at the airport has reached 1 million passengers per year, while terminal capacity is only 300,000 passengers.
"The investment in HAS Hanandjoeddin was prepared Rp. 559.9 billion, half of which was for terminal development. The rest was for other facilities such as runway thickening," said Muhammad Awaluddin.
HAS Hanandjoeddin Airport currently serves a number of domestic flights such as from and to Jakarta and Palembang, as well as international routes to and from Singapore.
Meanwhile, at Radin Inten II (Lampung) Airport, the total investment prepared amounting to Rp.467.6 billion includes periodic overlay runway and construction and rehabilitation of airport facilities.
The passengers at Radin Inten II Airport are projected to reach 6 million passengers per year in the next 30 years.
The development will also be carried out by AP II at Fatmawati Soekarno Airport (Bengkulu) with a total investment of Rp. 622.6 billion. The investment is prepared for the construction of a new terminal in two stages to anticipate the movement of 5.6 million passengers in the next 30 years.
"Through a variety of experiences, including building digital infrastructure at airports, AP II is optimistic that it can develop the three airports in order to better support economic growth and tourism in Indonesia," said Muhammad Awaluddin.
