December 2022, Soekarno-Hatta Airport Dominates the Asean Aviation Market and Enters the Top 10 World's Busiest Airports

09 Jan 2023

Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Tangerang, Banten is the busiest airport in ASEAN by serving more than 2 million passengers in December 2022. This airport is also the 9th busiest in the world.

Quoting the OAG Aviation report, Soekarno-Hatta Airport is the busiest airport in ASEAN with a flight seat capacity of 2.15 million seats in December 2022. This also proves that Soetta Airport still dominates the aviation market in ASEAN.

In detail, the airport with the CGK code served 2,157,518 during December 2022. Followed by Tan Son Nhat Airport, Vietnam with 1.46 million passengers. Then, Manila International Airport, Philippines with 1.35 million people.

Furthermore, Noi Bai International airport in Vietnam with 1.06 million passengers. Followed by Ghailand's Don Mueang International Airport with 932 thousand passengers.

Several airports in Indonesia are also included in the list of the 10 busiest airports in ASEAN. Namely, Makassar Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport, Juanda International Airport, and Bali I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport. The three of them serve passengers ranging from 514 thousand to 900 thousand people during December 2022.

Not only regarding the level of serving passengers, Soekarno Hatta Airport is also lined up to be the 9th busiest airport in terms of the number of flights served. This figure is obtained at the same time in December 2022.

Quoting, in December 2022, Soekarno-Hatta Airport was ranked 9th on the list of the busiest airports in the world.

Soekarno-Hatta Airport serves an average of 579 flights daily during December 2022. This figure is higher than Charlotte airport in the United States with an average of 574 flights per day.

This is proof that flight traffic at Soekarno-Hatta Airport continues to grow during the recovery period amid the Covid pandemic.

It turns out that the shipping service industry via cargo has already stretched during the COVID-19 pandemic. At least, during Christmas 2022 and New Year 2023, the cargo industry in the Soekarno Hatta International Airport area will serve 1,839,080 kg.

"The peak occurred on D-2 before Christmas 2022, or on December 23. At Soekarno Hatta Airport alone, serving 1,839,080 kg of cargo," said President Director of PT Angkasa Pura II, Muhammad Awaluddin, as written, Monday (2/1 /2023).

Then, if you add up the 20 airports managed by PT Angkasa Pura II, on the same day as the peak of the Nataru 2022 holiday transportation, it turns out that there is also a lot of cargo being transported. That is, it reaches 2,579,931 kg of cargo served.

This number, according to Awaluddin, shows a good figure. This is because the cargo industry was considered to have started working during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Cargo has felt an increase in 2021, at that time recovery has occurred. So that in 2022, it will grow in number and volume, and I think this figure can continue to grow in 2023," said Awaluddin.

Because according to him, the service of more than 2 million kilograms of cargo is not the maximum amount and volume that can be served by PT Angkasa Pura II. Companies can still serve another 8 to 9 percent of that amount, during peak times.

"Maximum 10 percent," he added.

Hence, in the long term, the company will build a Cargo Village in the area of Soekarno Hatta International Airport to the west. Or to be precise, it is close to the M1 gate, access to enter Soetta Airport from Neglasari District, Tangerang City.
