Jakarta airport to attract new airlines with LCC terminals

PT Angkasa Pura II, a state-owned Indonesian airport operator, has announced plans to revitalize two terminals to attract low-cost carriers at Jakarta´s Soekarno Hatta Airport, the company said.

Low-cost foreign carriers that are yet to enter Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Jakarta include Viet Jet, Jeju Air, Malindo Air and Nok Air.

The revitalization of the two terminals is scheduled to be completed in 2022. Some nine million more passengers per year are expected to use them, taking their capacity to 25 million per year.

The revitalization calls for an investment of IDR 2.7 trillion for terminal expansion and the addition of tools that support the digital concept and smart airport.
