Jakarta - PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) continues to maintain the performance of cargo transportation in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A number of efforts have been made by AP II, including coordinating closely with airlines to ensure smooth handling of cargo even in the midst of a pandemic so that it can accommodate requests and take advantage of existing potential.

On Friday, July 16, 2021, Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi conducted a direct inspection of the Cargo Terminal activities at Soekarno-Hatta Airport.

On that occasion, the Minister of Transportation also emphasized the importance of maintaining the performance of cargo transportation in the midst of the declining movement of aircraft passengers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Today [Friday, July 16], I and the President Director of AP II directly inspected the condition of the Soekarno-Hatta Airport Cargo Terminal. This is important to do to ensure that cargo transportation continues to run amidst the declining chart of passenger movements during the pandemic," said the Minister of Transportation.

The performance of cargo transportation at AP II airports this year has increased significantly compared to last year.

"During Semester I/2021, in the midst of this pandemic, cumulatively the total volume of cargo transportation at all AP II airports reached 353,819 tons, an increase of 30.24% compared to Semester I/2020," explained AP II President Director Muhammad Awaluddin.

The highest volume of cargo transportation in January - June 2021 was recorded at Soekarno-Hatta Airport with 271,769 tons, an increase of 29.68% compared to the same period the previous year.

Muhammad Awaluddin added, "The increase in cargo volume at AP II airports is due to the growth of freight forwarding which is driven among others from e-commerce activities, and most importantly the smooth handling of cargo at AP II airports. Close coordination is carried out with the Ministry of Transportation, Airport Authority, and also airlines regarding transport capacity, including using cargo planes [freighter] and services in the cargo area or Cargo Terminal," explained Muhammad Awaluddin.

Menhub tinjau Terminal Kargo dan apresiasi Sentra Vaksinasi Bandara Soekarno-Hatta


Jakarta - PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) terus menjaga kinerja angkutan kargo di tengah pandemi COVID-19.

Sejumlah upaya  dilakukan AP II di antaranya berkoordinasi erat dengan maskapai guna memastikan kelancaran penanganan kargo meski di tengah pandemi sehingga dapat mengakomodir permintaan dan mengambil potensi yang ada.

Pada Jumat, 16 Juli 2021, Menteri Perhubungan Budi Karya Sumadi melakukan peninjauan langsung aktivitas Terminal Kargo di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta.

Pada kesempatan itu, Menhub juga menekankan pentingnya menjaga kinerja angkutan kargo di tengah menurunnya pergerakan penumpang pesawat selama pandemi COVID-19. 

“Hari ini [Jumat, 16 Juli] saya bersama Dirut AP II meninjau langsung kondisi Terminal Kargo Bandara Soekarno-Hatta. Hal ini penting dilakukan untuk memastikan angkutan kargo tetap berjalan di tengah menurunnya grafik pergerakan penumpan di masa pandemi,” ujar Menhub. 

Adapun kinerja angkutan kargo di bandara-bandara AP II pada tahun ini mengalami peningkatan cukup signifikan dibandingkan dengan tahun lalu. 

“Sepanjang Semester I/2021, di tengah pandemi ini, secara kumulatif total volume angkutan kargo di seluruh bandara AP II mencapai 353.819 ton atau naik 30,24% dibandingkan dengan Semester I/2020,” jelas President Director AP II Muhammad Awaluddin. 

Volume angkutan kargo terbanyak pada Januari - Juni 2021 tercatat di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta dengan 271.769 ton atau naik 29,68% dibandingkan dengan periode yang sama tahun sebelumnya. 

Muhammad Awaluddin menambahkan, “Meningkatnya volume kargo di bandara AP II karena tumbuhnya pengiriman barang yang antara lain didorong dari aktivitas e-commerce, dan yang paling penting adalah kelancaran penanganan kargo di bandara-bandara AP II. Koordinasi erat dilakukan dengan Kementerian Perhubungan, Otoritas Bandara, dan juga maskapai mengenai kapasitas angkut termasuk menggunakan pesawat kargo [freighter] dan layanan di area kargo atau Terminal Kargo,” jelas Muhammad Awaluddin. 

Kunjungan Menhub ke Terminal Kargo ini juga untuk meninjau langsung kondisi angkutan kargo di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta pada PPKM Darurat Jawa - Bali yang dimulai pada 3 Juli. 

“Saya ingin melihat langsung kondisi angkutan kargo di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta paska pemberlakuan PPKM Darurat,” jelas Menhub.

Muhammad Awaluddin menuturkan volume angkutan kargo pada periode PPKM Darurat di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta ada di angka berkisar 50.000 - 60.000 ton setiap harinya atau relatif stabil dibandingkan dengan sebelum PPKM Darurat. 

“Aktivitas angkutan kargo di seluruh bandara AP II termasuk di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta selama pandemi ini dapat terjaga berkat dukungan Kementerian Perhubungan, Otoritas Bandara dan seluruh stakeholder antara lain maskapai, Balai Karantina, Bea dan Cukai, dan sebagainya.”

Di tengah pandemi ini, sejak Desember 2020 Terminal Kargo Bandara Soekarno-Hatta juga sukses menangani kedatangan vaksin untuk COVID-19 yang membutuhkan cara-cara dan fasilitas khusus. Sampai Jumat, 16 Juli 2021, total Bandara Soekarno-Hatta sudah menangani kedatangan vaksin hingga tahap ke-27. 

Sentra vaksinasi di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta
Setelah meninjau Terminal Kargo, Menhub kemudian melihat langsung pelaksanaan vaksinasi bagi calon penumpang pesawat di Terminal 3 Bandara Soekarno-Hatta.

Menhub mengapresiasi AP II karena telah membuka sentra vaksinasi di bandara-bandara yang dikelola sebagai upaya mendukung protokol kesehatan sesuai Surat Edaran Menhub Nomor 45 Tahun 2021 yang berlaku di tengah PPKM Darurat. 

“Saya mengapresiasi apa yang dilakukan oleh PT Angkasa Pura II sebagai bentuk dukungan dalam melayani vaksinasi penumpang di simpul-simpul transportasi,” ujar Menhub.

Sejak dibuka pada 3 Juli 2021, sentra vaksinasi di Terminal 2 dan Terminal 3 Bandara Soekarno-Hatta hingga kini telah menjalankan vaksinasi bagi sekitar 17.000 calon penumpang pesawat.

AP II berharap sentra vaksinasi di bandara-bandara yang dikelola perseroan juga dapat mendukung percepatan program vaksinasi nasional guna mewujudkan kekebalan komunal (herd immunity). 

The Minister of Transportation's visit to the Cargo Terminal was also to directly observe the condition of cargo transportation at Soekarno-Hatta Airport at the Java - Bali Emergency PPKM which began on July 3.

"I want to see firsthand the condition of cargo transportation at Soekarno-Hatta Airport after the implementation of the Emergency PPKM," explained the Minister of Transportation.

Muhammad Awaluddin said the volume of cargo transportation during the Emergency PPKM period at Soekarno-Hatta Airport was in the range of 50,000 - 60,000 tons per day or relatively stable compared to before the Emergency PPKM.

"Cargo transportation activities at all AP II airports including Soekarno-Hatta Airport during this pandemic can be maintained thanks to the support of the Ministry of Transportation, Airport Authority and all stakeholders including airlines, Quarantine Center, Customs and Excise, and so on."

In the midst of this pandemic, since December 2020 the Soekarno-Hatta Airport Cargo Terminal has also successfully handled the arrival of a vaccine for COVID-19 which requires special methods and facilities. As of Friday, July 16, 2021, Soekarno-Hatta Airport in total has handled the arrival of the vaccine until the 27th stage.

After reviewing the Cargo Terminal, the Minister of Transportation then saw firsthand the implementation of vaccinations for prospective airplane passengers at Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport.

The Minister of Transportation appreciated AP II for having opened vaccination centers at managed airports as an effort to support health protocols according to the Circular Letter of the Minister of Transportation Number 45 of 2021 which applies in the midst of Emergency PPKM.

"I appreciate what PT Angkasa Pura II has done as a form of support in serving passenger vaccinations at transportation nodes," said the Minister of Transportation.

Since opening on July 3, 2021, vaccination centers at Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport have so far carried out vaccinations for around 17,000 prospective airplane passengers.

AP II hopes that vaccination centers at airports managed by the company can also support the acceleration of the national vaccination program to achieve communal immunity (herd immunity).
