Latest news about PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero)
Tangerang - Coinciding with the homecoming moment this time, a surge in passengers was found in 15 airports managed by Angkasa Pura II. The travelers who prefer air transportation facilities through Angkasa Pura II airports, this year are facilitated by the availability of new facilities available at each airport. Especially at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, since being operated on September 17, 2017, skytrain has become increasingly popular with passengers as an option for inter-terminal transportation. Therefore, Angkasa Pura II will develop a skytrain which can now carry up to 176 pax per trip.
The Skytrain itself is an unmanned mode of transportation using the first automated guideway transit system in Indonesia. At present, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport has 3 trains that operate dual tracks (track A and B) with a 3.07 km long track. The maximum speed is 30 km / h, with a 13 minute headway and 1 minute dwell time. However, the current operation of the skytrain is still manual, which still involves the driver's crew inside.
Angkasa Pura II's President Director, Muhammad Awaluddin, revealed "Judging from the increase in passenger movements from year to year and approximately 80% of the majority of skytrain users are passengers, we will develop so that they do not have to wait long for intermittent mobilization". Some of the things that will be developed from skytrain at Soekarno-Hatta are the plan to add 3 more trains in September 2018 so that there will be 6 trains that can carry up to 352 pax per trip and there are plans to automate the operation of trains without crew, the speed will be added from the headway the original 13 minutes was cut to 6 minutes, so the train frequency will also be more than currently available.
Meanwhile the condition of the existing skytrain route at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is Terminal 1 - Airport Train Station - Terminal 2 - Terminal 3 (pp). This route is planned to be extended to the development plan of Terminal 4 in the golf coloring area and to the sky city commercial area which is currently under construction.
Not only developing its own skytrain, Angkasa Pura II will also build and provide supporting facilities from these elevated trains such as sky bridges, trails, shelters, and systems and signaling, which are fundamental to the operation of the skytrain. "The progress of the construction of the first phase of the track and shelter has been 100%, while the progress of system development and automatic signaling has almost reached 100%, with the planned development of the sky train the minimum connecting time (MCT) needed to move between terminals will be more efficient," Awaluddin concluded .
