The Soekarno-Hatta International Airport's skytrain, which commenced operations on Sunday, is expected to connect with the Dukuh Atas railway station near downtown Jakarta by December this year.

Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said that once the connection was made, travelers only needed to board a train from Dukuh Atas to reach the international airport.

"In December, the entire network for this skytrain will be complete and will be in operation simultaneously," Budi Karya said as quoted by tempo.co.

Transportation Minister Budi Karya and State-Owned Enterprises Minister Rini Soemarno kicked off the skytrain operations in a ceremony on Sunday.

The train will launch on a limited section of the track to connect Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 in the first phase of operations, before connecting all three terminals in November.

Spokesperson for airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II Yado Yarismano said once the entire network was complete, passengers bound for Soekarno-Hatta could catch a train from all stations in Greater Jakarta and would alight at the airport railway station before taking the skytrain to their intended terminal.

A brief power outage affected the ceremony on Sunday. No disruption of service was reported, tempo.co said.
