In the midst of this situation, to accelerate recovery, we must expand our business and not only rely on aeronautical and non-aeronautical businesses," said Muhammad Awaluddin.

AP II currently operates the Airport Operation Control Center (AOCC) which is strengthened by ACDM as a system that accommodates information-based cooperation from all stakeholders in order to maintain and improve service standards for airplane passengers and airlines.
ACDM makes it easy for stakeholders to coordinate in real time, including the use of check-in counters, boarding lounges, flight gates and so on.
Meanwhile, Director of Commercial & Services AP II Mohammad Rizal Pahlevi said the discussion between AP II, Changi Airport Group and Garuda Indonesia was also related to efforts to strengthen the transit area for passengers on international routes at Soekarno-Hatta Airport.
"Soekarno-Hatta Airport will strengthen services in the transit area for passengers on international routes, and this is one of our efforts to make Soekarno-Hatta Airport an international flight hub, which in other words, the portion of international flights will be increased. So far, Soekarno-Hatta Airport has been very understanding of services in the domestic flight transit area because the majority of flights are routes within the country, "explained Mohammad Rizal Pahlevi.
The second meeting between AP II, Changi Airport Group and Garuda Indonesia will be held in July at the Soekarno-Hatta Airport area. Through collaboration, flight recovery is expected to come more quickly.
