State operator to open transit hotel at Kualanamu airport
The Jakarta Post
State-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II is set to open a transit hotel at Kualanamu International Airport in Deli Serdang regency, North Sumatra.
The company's director Muhammad Awaluddin told kompas.com that the hotel was slated to open in November and designed for passengers who are in transit but do not want to travel to Medan's city center.
Transit passengers in Kualanamu airport currently have to travel to Medan to spend the night before continuing their journey.
The transit hotel will be situated at the airport's terminal. With a capacity of 100 rooms, it will be managed by local hotel operator Horison Hotels Group.
PT Angkasa Pura II also plans to develop an airport city in Kualanamu area and make the airport a terminal hub for international flights to reduce air traffic density at Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. (jes/kes)
