National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia's low-cost subsidiary, Citilink, is to temporarily move its domestic flight operations from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport's Terminal 1C to Terminal 2 on Aug. 15.
The move is being made to make room for the revitalization of Terminal 1C conducted by state-owned airport operator Angkasa Pura (AP) II.
"Hopefully the adequate facility and infrastructure at Terminal 2 Domestic would be able to enhance our passengers' pre- and post-flight experiences," said Citilink Indonesia president director Juliandra in a statement on Sunday.
Following the move, passengers who are traveling to domestic destinations can access the carrier's check-in counters through Gate 3 in Terminal 2 Domestic.
There are to be no changes in the flight schedule. However, travelers are advised to arrive at the airport three hours prior to departure and check in online via the airline's website or mobile application.
Citilink's domestic flight operations are to return to Terminal 1C after the revitalization is complete, "as Terminal 1C will become a dedicated terminal for Citilink Indonesia's domestic flights", added Juliandra.
According to the airport's branch communication and legal senior manager, Febri Toga Simpatupang, the revitalization is meant to increase the terminal's capacity and serves as part of the operator's efforts to keep innovating, especially in terms of digital services. (kes)
