INDUSTRY.co.id - Medan - Ministry of Transportation changed the name Silangit Airport located in North Tapanuli Regency to be changed to Raja Sisingamangaraja XII International Airport.

Through the Lake Toba Authority group in Medan, Saturday (8/9/2018), it is known that the change is stated in the Minister of Transportation Decree No. 1404 of 2018 concerning Amendment to the Name of Silangit International Airport to Raja Sisingamangaraja XII Internaional Airport.

The Minister of Transportation's decision was socialized by the Head of the Ministry of Transportation's Legal Bureau Wahju Adji H through letter Number 243 / Srt / B.IV / IX / 2018 dated September 4, 2018.

In the letter, the Head of the Legal Bureau of the Ministry of Transportation Wahju Adji H stated that the decision to change the name of the airport was made on 3 September 2018.

The letter was addressed to the Secretary of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Director of the Air Transportation Airport of the Ministry of Transportation.

However, Wahju Adji did not explain the reasons and considerations behind the change of name of the Silangit International Airport Airport to Raja Sisingamangaraja XII Internaional Airport.
