INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT Angkasa Pura I (Persero) will continue to expand and build a terminal 13 of the airports it manages so that it can provide business opportunities for private companies.
"Almost all the airports that we manage are expanding. The expansion of this terminal will be able to have business impact for the company and the private sector as mutually beneficial tenants," said PT Angkasa Pura (AP) Director of Marketing and Services I Devi Suradji to the press after the 2018 Tenant Gathering program in Jakarta, Wednesday (5/9/2018)
It is said, now the airport terminal is no longer just a place to come and go but also as a place to grow the business by selling a number of products, just as in shopping centers and malls.
For that, said Devi, the airport managed by AP I provides a number of outlets that tenants can rent to promote products and services to passengers and non-passengers.
"The room we rent is not only for large companies but we also prepare space for small and medium businesses," he said.
A number of airports under construction and expanded terminals include Kulonprogo (Yogyakarta), Juanda (Surabaya), Ahmad Yani (Semarang), Syamsudin Noor (Banjarmasin), Lombok Praya (Lombok), Sultan Hasanuddin (Makassar), and Sam Ratulangi (Manado) .
Construction of the Kulonprogo Airport terminal will open a business opportunity for the company to rent a place at the airport which is planned to be operational in early 2019.
Likewise Juanda Airport, the AP I is also expanding the terminal by providing business places that can be used by employers to develop their businesses.
"The opportunity to become a tenant at the airport managed by AP I is very large, considering there are at least more than 90 million passengers each year who fly and land in 13 airports with a composition of 45 percent of women and 55 percent of men," Devi said.
From the results of a survey conducted by the company, 40 percent of passengers travel more than five times each year at the airport managed by AP I. As many as 64 percent of passengers shop at the airport and as many as 48 percent are over 30 years old.
