okezone.com JAKARTA - PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) revitalized Terminal 1C and Terminal 2F. This revitalization was carried out for the first time since the Soekarno-Hatta Airport first started operating in 1985.
With this revitalization, IC and 2F Terminals were temporarily closed. As for part of the overall revitalization of the Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 buildings.
President Director of PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) Muhammad Awaluddin said the closure of Terminals 1 and 2F was carried out in order to accelerate the revitalization program of the terminal building that 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.
"PT Angkasa Pura II is evaluating the use of capital expenditure [Capex Disbursement] this year. Among other things, Capex is only used for multiyears projects and is considered very important. Revitalization of Terminals 1C and 2F is included in priority projects, as well as the formulation of planning or design of Terminal 4 at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, "Awaluddin explained, in his statement, Thursday (6/18/2020).
In addition to terminals 1C and 2F being closed, terminals 1A, 1B were also temporarily closed. Whereas Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic serves all flights in Terminal 2D and 2E and Terminal 3.
Awaluddin said this decision was based on several considerations. Such as adjusting operational patterns in the midst of a pandemic to make Soekarno-Hatta move effectively. There are 4 categories of operational patterns established by PT Angkasa Pura II, namely Normal Operation, Slow Down Operation and Minimum Operation Level I and Drinking Operation Level II.
As for Soekarno-Hatta, the Minimum Operation Level I operational pattern has been established, adjusting to the existing flight traffic.
"Currently the entire terminal capacity in Soekarno-Hatta (Terminals 1, 2 and 3) can accommodate up to around 45 million passengers per year. Then, we adjusted the operational patterns so that Soekarno-Hatta could operate effectively. 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.
Awaluddin said that the closure of Terminals 1 and 2F was temporary and could be reopened at any time in accordance with developments in conditions related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
"All PT Angkasa Pura II airports, including Soekarno-Hatta, 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 and dynamics of existing airport operations," Awaluddin explained.
