PT Bukaka Teknik Utama, part of the Kalla Group, has won a Rp 100 billion (US$7.5 million) contract to build 33 jet bridges and three moving walkways for Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok.

The contract was signed by the company’s director of operations and human resources, Saptiastuti Hapsari, in Bangkok on Tuesday, in the presence of Indonesian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Thailand Ahmad Rusdi and the managing director of Indonesian Bankexim, Dikdik Yustandi.

The construction of the 33 jet bridges and three walkways is scheduled to be completed within a year, with the first shipment to be carried out in January.

“The cooperation with the Thai airport authority is expected to be continued in the future and help further increase bilateral cooperation in trade and investment between Indonesia and Thailand,” the company said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Indonesian ambassador expressed hope that the cooperation between Bukaka and the Thai airport authority would strengthen business relations and cooperation between the two countries.

Bukaka, with almost 41 years of experience in the production of jet bridges and airport walkways, has exported jet bridges to Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Chile and Bangladesh. (hen)
