Homecoming Smoothly at AP II Airport, Until the Second Day of Eid the Number of Airplane Passengers Over 2 Million People!

04 May 2022

Jakarta - The implementation of the 2022 Eid transportation at all PT Angkasa Pura II airports is running smoothly.

For 12 days or from D-10 until the second day of Eid (April 22 - May 3), the number of passenger movements at 20 AP II airports cumulatively reached 2.13 million people with aircraft movements of 17,477 flights.

Especially at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, which is the largest and busiest airport in Indonesia, the number of passenger movements during that period was recorded at 1.36 million people with aircraft movements reaching 10,989 flights.

The top five destinations from Soekarno-Hatta Airport on April 22 - May 4 are Denpasar, Medan, Makassar, Surabaya and Pontianak.

AP II President Director Muhammad Awaluddin said the 2022 Eid transportation was a challenge for AP II and stakeholders because the previous 2 years there was no angleb event as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nevertheless, continued Muhammad Awaluddin, AP II and stakeholders can collaborate so that the implementation of the homecoming flow can run smoothly and is now preparing to welcome the return flow.

"The close collaboration between AP II, regulators, airlines, ground handling, flight navigation service providers, TNI and Polri, and other stakeholders is a factor in the success of all AP II airports in being able to serve travelers well. Eid transportation in 2022 is a challenge for us, because the previous 2 years there was no angleb event as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful that the implementation of Angleb 2022 so far has gone well at AP II airport, "said Muhammad Awaluddin.

The realization of collaboration among AP II airport stakeholders is the adjustment of airport and airline operational patterns, flight time slot arrangements, optimization of aircraft movement on the airside of the airport, speed and accuracy of handling passengers at the terminal, and optimization of ground handling.

"Through this collaboration, we can accommodate the high demand for angleb 2022 while still paying attention to security, safety and service aspects, even though the number of facilities is not as large as during normal conditions before the COVID-19 pandemic," explained Muhammad Awaluddin.

The smooth implementation of Angleb 2022 at AP II airport cannot be separated from the commitment of all AP II airport staff, who at the beginning of the 2022 angleb period received direct direction and enthusiasm from the Minister of SOEs, Erick Thohir.

The Minister of SOEs on April 26 held a fire briefing to hundreds of personnel at Soekarno-Hatta Airport in order to make angleb a success.

“I want to make sure we all have to come back ready. Ready to face going home, we provide the best service to the community and our families who will go home," said the Minister of SOEs at the time.

The SOE Minister added, "Let's serve well together," explained the SOE Minister.

The joint effort to realize the smoothness of the 2022 angleb at Soekarno-Hatta Airport also received appreciation from the Minister of Transportation, Budi Karya Sumadi.

When carrying out inspections at Soekarno-Hatta Airport during the homecoming flow, the Minister of Transportation said that airport operators, facilities and flight navigation operators are very compact in collaborating so that they are able to meet demand.

"With fewer facilities, it can create a lot of movement," said the Minister of Transportation.

Reverse flow
On this day, May 4, 2022, all AP II airports are preparing to receive homecomers on the return flow.

It is estimated that the movement of passengers on May 4 (D + 1) reached around 160,000 passengers and this number will increase until the peak of the return flow on May 7-9.

On May 7, cumulatively at 20 AP II airports, it is estimated that the number of passenger movements reached 166,312 people, then on May 8 the highest was 199,857 people and May 9 was 179,542 people.

Muhammad Awaluddin said, "AP II urges homecomers to travel backflows earlier so they are not concentrated on 7-9 May. Early travel really helps the movement of passengers on a well-distributed return flow.”

On the return flow, AP II focuses on the smooth process of passenger arrivals, including arranging aircraft arrivals, baggage claim and land transportation (buses, taxis and so on).
