State-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura (AP) II has held the CGK Airport Code Race to facilitate software developers to develop an application that will help airports provide passengers with better services.

A total of 59 teams took part in the event on Sunday. The organizers have selected 40 teams to take part at the next event.

“Through the event, we invite people to take part in improving the travel experience of passengers – before during and after flights,” said AP II president director Muhammad Awaluddin in his statement received by The Jakarta Post on Monday.

He also expressed hope the participants would create an application that could help airport management find solutions for the various problems it faced.

“We are in an era in which passengers expect better and better services. Therefore, we have to be aware of the services they want. The result of the race will be used by AP II to help improve services, increase revenue and create more efficient operations,” he added.

Meanwhile, Information and Communication Ministry’s information technology director general Samuel A. Pangerapan, said the government supported AP II service integration through digital applications.

The CGK Airport Code Race is part of the Startup Grand Prix road to Digital Indonesia League, which is organized by Indonesian Information Technology Association (Mastel) and the Indonesian Internet Service Providers Association (APJII).

Master chairman Kristiono expressed hope the CGK Airport Code Race would contribute to the innovation of services at airports under the management of AP II. (bbn)
