State-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I (AP I) served more than 6 million passengers over the year-end holidays across 13 airports, stating that it had achieved growth of 6.37 percent from the same period last year.
The increase in passengers is followed by the growth of aircraft movement during the aforementioned holidays. The operator recorded more than 47,000 aircraft movements for both domestic and international flights across 13 airports under AP I.
“The airport with the highest domestic and international passenger movements is Juanda International Airport in Surabaya, East Java, which catered to 1.4 million passengers,” said AP I director Faik Fahmi in a press release.
Faik added that Frans Kaisiepo International Airport in Biak regency, Papua, recorded the biggest increase in passenger numbers. (wir/kes)
