Indonesian airport company, PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero), is to implement the concept of a multi-airport system at four airports: Husein Sastranegara, Kertajati, Halim Perdanakusuma and Soekarno-Hatta.
“We will make Husein Sastranegara an airport that supports turboprop/propeller aircraft operations by presenting various flight routes, both scheduled and unscheduled,” said Muhammad Awaluddin. “In addition, PT Angkasa Pura II also strives for Husein Sastranegara Airport to optimally support general aviation flights for tourism and so on. By becoming a turboprop/propeller flight hub, Bandung can become a hub for national tourism destinations.”
“We want to build a turboprop/propeller aircraft ecosystem at Husein Sastranegara Airport, in addition to being able to further optimise the fleet of turboprop/propeller aircraft in Indonesia, we also hope that national connectivity will be wider, especially to a number of areas that have not yet been reached by airlines,” explained Muhammad Awaluddin.
Meanwhile, the company has said that Kertajati Airport, Halim Perdanakusuma in Jakarta and Soekarno-Hatta will support each other so that each of these airports can operate effectively and efficiently in supporting the national economy and tourism.
