Air transportation infrastructure in Indonesia.

Current Issue

Competition in the airport service business is sharper from year to year especially among international airports. Competition among international airports lies in a number of factors such as in security and services related to the availability of various facilities and convenience. After the government adopted the open sky policy, airport operators in the country--PT. Angkasa Pura PURA PACOM Utilization & Redistribution Agency
PURA Public Utility Regulatory Act
 I and PT. Angkasa Pura II--have continued to seek to improve services. A number of airport have been promoted in status to international airports.

Based on a report from IATA IATA

International Air Transport Association, which sets the rules for air transport, including those concerning air transport of animals.
 (International Air Transport Association), with the exception of China and India, air transport industry in Indonesia is quite fast among Asia Pacific countries. The number of air passengers in the Asia Pacific region is forecast to grow by 7% in 2006-2007 and in Indonesia the annual growth is 22%, according to according to

). The increase growth of the air transport industry also indicates improvement in the country's economic condition.

According to data at the Transport Ministry, the number of air passenger both domestic and international flights reached almost 25 million by mid 2006. The country has around 54 airlines not including those already licensed but not yet starting operation.

The fast growing air transport industry, however, is not followed with proportional growth in air transport infrastructure especially in the airport capacity. Some airports already are in difficulty to handle growing passengers and increase in flight frequency because of lack of facilities. Additional facilities or expansion of capacity such as passenger terminals, parking lots and runways are needed and vital to meet the growing demand.

In the recent Indonesia Infrastructure Conference & Exhibition (IICE IICE Information Integration for Concurrent Engineering
IICE Interactive Internet Collaborative Environment (Insoft) 
) in November, 2006, the government offered a number of airport development projects to investors. The projects include the Kuala Namu air port project in Medan to cost around US$ 224.6 million, passenger terminal expansion project at the Soekarno-Hatta airport to cost around US$ 226 million and cargo terminal project also at the Soekarno-Hatta airport to cost around US$ 237 million.

Meanwhile booming is predicted in the tourism sector in the Asia Pacific region including in Indonesia, after the implementation of Asean Free Trade Area ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA) is a trade bloc agreement by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations supporting local manufacturing in all ASEAN countries.

Model of airport management

AP and regional administrations have profit sharing profit sharing, arrangement by which employees receive, in addition to their wages, a share of the net profits of a business. The purpose is to give them an incentive to increase their output through enhanced morale, less wasteful use of materials, better care of  agreement. AP II and the Tangerang administration have income sharing ratio of 75:25 for income from parking lots of the Soekarno-Hatta airport.

Flight Service Tariffs

Adjustment of flight service tariffs for both domestic and international fights is made every two years. In special cases such as in case of an increase in basic costs adjustment could be made every year.

Main Players

Commercial airports are under two state companies namely PT Angkasa Pura I (AP I) and PT Angkasa Pura II (AP II).

PT AP I operates 13 airports including Juanda airport of Surabaya, Hasanuddin airport of Makassar, and Frans Kasiepo airport of Biak. PT AP II operates 10 airports including Soekarno Hatta airport of Cengkareng, Polonia airport of Medan. No airport is operated yet by private company in the country.

Angkasa Pura I was established in 1964 as the operator of the Kemayoran domestic airport of Jakarta. In 1985, it was named the operator of international airport of Soekarno Hatta and Halim Perdana Kusuma. Now it is the operator of 13 airports in eastern part of the country.

Angkasa Pura II was established in 1984 with the name of Perum Pelabuhan Udara Jakarta Cengkareng (PPUJC), In 1993 its name was changed with Angkasa Pura II. Now AP II operate 10 airport in western part of the country.

One of the airports operated by APIII APIII Advancing Pathology Informatics Imaging and the Internet  is the Soekarno-Hatta airport, the country's largest airport handling 29 million air passengers in 2005.

AP I has the Juanda airport of Surabaya, the country's second largest airport with a capacity to handle 6 million air passengers a year. The capacity is to be expanded to 15 million passengers in 2015.

Angkasa Pura I

Airports under AP I could be put in different categories by their condition namely growing, in the take off, nearing the break even point and losing and serving more to meet public service obligation.

Those included in the category of growing are Juanda, Ngurah Rai, and Hasanuddin which serve more than 3 million air passengers a year. Those in the take off are Sepinggan and Adisutjipto handling from 2 to 3 million air passengers a year. Losing airports, serving more for public service obligation include Pattimura of Ambon, Adisumarmo of Solo, El Tari of Kupang, Frans Kaisiepo of Biak with passengers totaling only less than 500,000 a year. The four airports, therefore, survive on cross subsidy subsidy, financial assistance granted by a government or philanthropic foundation to a person or association for the purpose of promoting an enterprise considered beneficial to the public welfare.  with operating cost partly covered with profit from other profitable airports such as Juanda of Surabaya, Ngurah Rai of Denpasar, and Hasanuddin of Makassar.

In 2005, AP I reported net profit amounting to RP 395.2 billion or a 30% increase from the previous year when net profit was recorded at Rp 286.5 billion. From Hasanuddin airport, AP I posted Rp 300 billion in air traffic service (ATS) income. The Makassar airport contributed 30% to the total profit of AP I. In 2006, AP I targeted to earn Rp 434 billion in pre tax profit with total income of Rp 1.5 trillion. Angkasa Pura I (AP I) plans to expand the Hasanuddin airport in 2007 with an investment of RP 534 billion. AP I will issue bond valued at Rp400 billion to raise fund to finance the project.

AP I also plans to sell the Selaparang airport Selaparang Airport (IATA: AMI, ICAO: WADA), is the airport serving Mataram, West Nusa Tenggara, in Indonesia. Airlines and destinations

    Plans to build new airports

    A number of the existing airports are no longer fit from the point of view of environment and capacity. Replacement, therefore is needed.

    Kualanamu Airports

    Kualanamu has been decided to replace the Polonia airport of Medan. Polonia is no longer fit from the point of view of the environment as it is located around crowded area in the North Sumatra North Sumatra (Indonesian: Sumatera Utara) is a province of Indonesia. Its capital is Medan. Geography and population
    The province of North Sumatra stretches across the island of Sumatra between the Indian Ocean and the Strait Malacca.

    The plan to build the new airport was already made in 1994 with a presidential decree No 76/1994. The decree was followed up with a MoU between PT. Angkasa Pura II and PT. Citra Lamtoro Gung Persada on investment and operation of the airport, but the agreement was cancelled with the crisis in 1997/1998 and the change in the government. After the recovery of the economy from the crisis, the plan to build the Kualanamu airport was resumed with a new presidential decree No. 15 in 2002.

    Currently, the project is still in the stage of groundbreaking, building water channels and completing administrative process. The central government will handle the construction of the airside air·side

    The first phase of the construction of the airport is estimated to cost Rp 3 trillion including Rp 1.3 trillion for land side facilities and Rp 1.7 for air side facilities. A foreign loan of US$ 225 million will be used for the air side construction and PT. Angkasa Pura II will provide Rp 1.2 trillion for the construction of land side facilities.

    The airport will occupy a land plot of 1,365 hectares, which were already cleared by PT AP II in 1997. The plan is the airport with 3,750 meter runway, will have the capacity to handle 10 million passengers in the first phase and it will be able to accommodate wide bodied aircraft such as Boeing 747-400 aircraft. The new airport is to be operational in 2010. On Dec. 21, 2006, Wiratman & Associates was declared as the tender winner to provide the design of the airport with a fee of Rp 3.245 billion to be completed in 240 days.

    Lombok Tengah Airport

    The Lombok Tengah airport will built over a 510 hectare hectare (hĕk`târ, –tär), abbr. ha, unit of area in the metric system, equal to 10,000 sq m, or about 2.47 acres.  plot of land at a cost of around Rp 625 billion. The airport will be a first class airport with a landing strip of 3,000 m.

    The airport is to be able to land wide bodied aircraft such as Airbus. It will equal the Ngurah Rai airport of Denpasar, Bali.

    Currently the Selaparang airport of Mataram is the largest airport in West Nusatenggara. It has a 2,100 meter runway 40 meter wide, that it could not be used by wide bodied aircraft.

    Majalengka Airport

    The Majalengka airport in West Java was first planned in April, 2006. The project is estimated to cost Rp 30 trillion. It is to be built over a 5,000 hectare plot of land with two runways parallel with taxiway with high accessibility.

    The runways are 3,000--3,500 meters long. It will have a parking lot that could accommodate 1,000 cars.

    The airport location is 40 meters above the sea level with wind speed in the past five years averaging 10 knots still within the international standard under which landing will be safe.

    The selection of Majalengka, is based on the availability of land and to suit the West Java's layout plan until 2010. In addition it will have high accessibility as it is located close to the Cirebon-Sumedang-Dawuan toll road to be built and the Cikampek toll road.

    Soekarno-Hatta's third Terminal

    The Soekarno- Hatta airport will have its third terminal to be built at a cost of US$ 226 million and a new cargo terminal to cost US$ 237 million. The additional facilities will be built in 2007.

    AP II also plans to build a shopping mall between the first and second terminals of the Soekarno Hatta airport to cost Rp 12 trillion.

    The country's largest airport has an installed capacity to handle 18 million passengers a year but now it has to operate above its capacity handling 29 million passenger a year.

    Railway Transport to Soekarno Hatta airport

    A railway track will be built to link the Soekarno-Hatta airport to the Manggarai railway station in South Jakarta. The project is estimated to cost Rp 900 billion. The railway will facilitate transport of passengers from and to the airport. Construction will start in 2007 to be completed in 2009 by a consortium PT. Rail Link

    Rail Link is a joint venture between state-owned railway company PT Kereta Api Indonesia (60%) and PT AP II (40%). It will also build such railway tracks in Medan, Padang, Palembang, Yogyakarta and Surabaya.

    A number of banks and contractors have indicated interest in building the project such as Bank Internasional Indonesia (BII BII Bank Internasional Indonesia

    Developments of Indonesian air fleets

    A fast growth has been recorded for the country's aviation industry. The expansion came with a sharp decline of 35% on the average in the ticket prices. Flight frequency also increased fast with the number of passenger peaked at more than 25 million in 2005.

    The Indonesia National Air Carriers Association (INACA) predicted that domestic flight service will grow by 15% in 2007 and international service by 8%. The prediction is based on plan by a number of airlines to increase the number of aircraft to strengthen their fleets. Some of the airlines use the latest makes of aircraft.

    Currently the country has 213 aircraft serving regular commercial flights up from 135 aircraft in 2001. Lion Air Lion Air is a low-cost airline based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It operates scheduled passenger services on an extensive domestic network from Jakarta to 35 destinations, as well as services to Singapore and Malaysia. Its full name is PT Lion Mentari Airlines.  and Adam Air Adam Air, (incorporated as PT. Adam SkyConnection Airlines), is a privately owned airline based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It operates scheduled domestic services to over 20 cities and international services to Penang and Singapore.  both have ambitious plans to increase their fleets with the latest models of aircraft.

    Main players in aviation industry

    Lion Air, which started operation only in 2000, is now the largest airline for domestic flights. The airline is the first budget airline in the country introducing low cost carrier service, followed by other private airlines including Batavia Air Batavia Air (PT. Metro Batavia) is an airline based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It operates domestic flights to around 30 destinations and international services to China and Malaysia. Its main base is Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Jakarta[1]. , Sriwijaya Air Sriwijaya Air is an airline based in Indonesia. It is a Sumatra based company, serving domestic flights to major cities in Indonesia. Code Data

    , etc.

    In 2005, Lion Air had 24 aircraft including 19 units of MD80 and 5 units of DHC-8-301. Lion Air has placed order for 60 units Boeing 737-900ER at a price of US$ 3.9 billion to be delivered in from 2007 to 2010.

    Lion Air recorded up to 600,000 passengers a month or 40% of the domestic market. In 2004, Lion Air was the second in market share after Garuda Indonesia. Now Lion Air serves flights to 36 cities in the country. The airline also serve international routes to Singapore, Penang, Kuala Lumpur Kuala Lumpur (kwä`lə lm`pr), city (1990 est. pop. , Ho Chi Minh Ho Chi Minh (hô chē mĭn), 1890–1969, Vietnamese nationalist leader, president of North Vietnam (1954–69), and one of the most influential political leaders of the 20th cent.

    A number of other airlines such as Batavia Air, Adam Air, Indonesia Air Asia and Sriwijaya Air also plan to expand their domestic flight services. The load factor of the airlines serving domestic flights is quite high prompting them to bring in more aircraft.

    Garuda Indonesia, the nation's flag carrier and the older airline in the country remains the largest with 62 aircrafts. Garuda has continued to report losses but it has not stopped seeking expansion. In 2007 it plans to add 30 more air crafts including Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

    Government Policy

    Operation and management of airports are regulated under the government regulation PP No. 70/2005. A decision of the transport minister No 81/2004 requires an airline to have at least two aircraft of its own.

    In January, 2005, the government decided to stop issuing license for new airline. A new regulation was issued requiring an airline to operate at least 5 aircrafts including two own aircrafts.

    Recently the House of Representatives called for the establishment of a separate company to take over the running and management of Air Traffic Service (ATS) from PT AP to enable PT AP to focus more airport service.

    AP II will lose around 35% of its income or Rp 1.2 trillion a year if it is to let go of ATS business. The air transport director general said the government plans to form single ATS provider.

    Problems to be handled

    --Services and facility

    Airport operators are required to provide services and facility up to international standards in quality. The terminal facilities and flight safety systems are audited every year by the Federation of Aviation Association (FAA). The air transport directorate general also conducts audit of flight safety.

    --Coordination systems

    Airport operators are responsible for controlling air traffic and holding coordination especially with neighboring neigh·bor  
    1. One who lives near or next to another.

    2. A person, place, or thing adjacent to or located near another.

    3. A fellow human.

    4. Used as a form of familiar address.

     countries such as Malaysia and Singapore to avoid misunderstanding in determining borders of air territory.

    --Slot time

    Airport operators must arrange flight schedules for landing and take-off to keep efficiency and prevent air accident.

    --Access to airports

    Access road to airport is important for ones located far from city center to reduce time to cover the distance. Limited means of public transport to and from Jakarta's Soekarno Hatta airport, for example, is a problem for many passengers.

    Business Risks

    Risks faced by airport operators include :

    --Flight accident

    Flight accidents could be caused by a number of factors such as bad weather, poor condition of airport, aircraft damage, pilot's errors, etc.

    --Natural disasters

    Though rare, natural disasters also pose a risk for airport operators. Natural disasters could disrupt flight scheduled that will cause losses to airport operators. The devastating dev·as·tate

    2. To overwhelm; confound; stun: was devastated by the rude remark.
     earthquakes in Yogyakarta in May, 2006, forced the closure of Adisutjipto airport for several days, causing a potential loss of up to Rp 151 million to the airport operator per day in landing service, taxing and keeping of aircraft and passenger services.

    Prospects and Conclusion

    The prospects are still good for business in development of new airports and expansion of ones with the growing trend of air passengers from 11.52 million in 2001 to 32.25 million in 2005.

    The fast growing number of air passenger necessitates addition of infrastructure including new airports and airport facilities. After the operation of the new Juanda airport in Nov. 2006, more airports have been planned. Kualanamu is to be built to replace Medan's old airport of Polonia. The Soekarno Hatta airport will have a third terminal as the two terminals could no longer handle growing number of passengers needing the service of the airport. The Hasanuddin airport of Makassar also needs expansion to handle growing number of passengers both those of domestic and international flights.

    The surge in the number of air passengers in the country followed the launching of low cost carrier service such as offered by Lion Air, Batavia Air, Sriwijaya Air, Adam Air, etc. Some of the private airlines are expected to increase the number of their aircraft such as Lion Air, Adam Air and Batavia Air, which have placed orders for new aircraft for delivery in 2007.

    Based on official record of the air transport directorate general, the number of air passenger in the country has continued to increase from year to year and the trend is expected to continue until 2010. The number of air passengers is estimated to reach 38 million in 2006 and the number of is forecast to rise to 62 million in 2010.

    The implementation agreements of AFTA in 2003 and APEC in 2010 will contribute to growth of the regional economy including its air transport industry.

    The growing number of air passenger necessitates development of new airport or expansion of the existing ones, offering an opportunity for investors to venture in this business area. The participation of the private sector in the construction of new airports is needed by the cash strapped strapped

    Meanwhile, the government needs to improve security in the country so as not to discourage visitors to the country. With security better guaranteed, more tourists are expected to visit the country.
