The Raja Haji Abdullah Airport in Tanjung Balai Karimun, Riau Islands, will also become operational in 2024.

After 2024, the Ministry of Transportation still has five projects to be finished, including the construction of the North-South and East-West lines of the Jakarta MRT.

"The MRT project will be massive after 2024," he stated.
