kumparan.com - In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport serves all flights in Terminal 2D and 2E and Terminal 3. For the time being, Terminal 1 (1A, 1B, 1C) and Terminal 2F are not operated.
President Director of PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero), Muhammad Awaluddin, said that the decision was made based on 3 considerations. First, adjusting operational patterns in the midst of a pandemic to make Soekarno-Hatta Airport operate effectively.
"There are four categories of operational patterns set by the company, namely normal operation, slow down operation and minimum operation level I and minimum operation level II," Awaluddin said in an official statement, in Jakarta, Wednesday, June 17, 2020.
He said that Soekarno Hatta Airport has set a Minimum Operation Level I operational pattern, which adjusts to the existing flight traffic. Awaluddin said that currently the entire capacity of terminals 1, 2 and 3 in Soekarno-Hatta can accommodate up to 45 passengers per year.
"Adjusting operational patterns is done by closing Terminal 1 and Terminal 2F. Meanwhile, Terminal 2D and 2E and Terminal 3 are the most capable of accommodating passenger flow with dynamic departure and arrival procedures in the middle of a pandemic," Awaluddin said.
Then, the second consideration is operational effectiveness. All PT Angkasa Pura II airports, including Soekarno-Hatta Airport, apply the concepts of Agile Operation, Resilience Operation and Lean Operation, so they can operate following the dynamic procedures set by the regulator and the development of the dynamics of existing airport operations.
Third, the closure of Terminals 1 and 2F was carried out in order to accelerate the terminal building revitalization program which is currently still ongoing in Terminal 1C and Terminal 2F. After revitalization, the capacity of Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 has increased from currently only 9 million passenger movements per year to 18 million each year.
"Revitalization of Terminals 1C and 2F is included in the priority projects, as well as the formulation of planning or design of Terminal 4 at Soekarno-Hatta Airport," he said.
At present, Terminal 2D operates Citilink, Sriwijaya, Airfast, Trigana Air, NAM Air, and Express Air airlines. For Terminal 2E, AirAsia Indonesia airline (will operate 19 June 2020), Batik Air and Lion Air.
Meanwhile, for Terminal 3, namely Garuda Indonesia, Cathay Pacific, Ethiopian Airlines, All Nippon Airlines, Japan Airlines, Lion Air (international), Korean Air, Qatar Airways, Thai Lion, and Singapore Airlines.
