State-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II (AP II) served 115 million passengers in 2018, a 9.5 percent increase from the 105 million passengers the previous year, a statement released by the company on Monday stated.

In 2018, AP II opened a number of new airports, including Kertajati International Airport in West Java, Tjilik Riwut Airport in Palangkaraya and Banyuwangi Airport in East Java.

AP II currently manages 16 airports across Indonesia.

To improve services, AP II made a number of improvements, including the development of digital services, namely Indonesia Airport App, an application that offers information on flights and airports.

Other improvements include the operation of the Soekarno-Hatta sky train connecting Terminal 1, 2 and 3 in Tangerang, Banten, an airport train to Soekarno-Hatta Airport and the operation of a light rapid transit (LRT) train from Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II Airport in Palembang.

AP II also completed the development of an airport operation control center (AOCC), which is a coordination center run by airport stakeholders – airlines, immigration, the customs and excise office, the quarantine center, the airport authority, the police and cargo operators, among others.

A terminal operation center (TOC) also facilitates quick response services, early warning detection and operating effectiveness at Soekarno-Hatta airport and Halim Perdanakusuma Airport in East Jakarta. (bbn)
