Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 17 November 2011

AirAsia Indonesia has moved all its operations at Soekarno Hatta International Airport in Jakarta to Terminal 3.

The state-of-the-art terminal, which formerly housed only Indonesian domestic flights, officially opened for international flights today, 17 November 2011.

The sleek and eco-friendly Terminal 3 has served as AirAsia Indonesias main base of domestic operations since 15 April 2009. The airline now consolidates its Jakarta hub operations under one roof by serving both domestic and international flights from Terminal 3.

Terminal 3 is without question a public facility the nation can be truly proud of. The sophisticated terminal is a reflection of Angkasa Pura IIs commitment to creating a world class airport, and will set a new environmental benchmark for airport buildings. We are particularly honored to be the first airline to fly internationally from Terminal 3. Not only will the move boost operational efficiency, but more importantly, it will also elevate our guests travel experience to the highest level of comfort, said Dharmadi, President Director of AirAsia Indonesia.

Terminal 3 provides complimentary WiFi and filtered drinking water fountains and relies on natural daylight rather than on artificial lighting which significantly lowers electricity consumption.

AirAsia Indonesia operates a brand new fleet of Airbus A320s, which by year-end will consist of 16 aircraft. Five more planes are set to be delivered in 2012, which will make a total fleet of 21.

In 2012, the airline aims to transport approximately 4 million passengers from and to its Jakarta hub alone, up around 33% from this years number that stands at an estimated 3 million.

The integration of our operations at Terminal 3 will enable guests to seamlessly transfer between domestic and international flights and vice versa. In addition, our Fly Thru facility enables connection from Jakarta to many exciting destinations such as Melbourne, Gold Coast, Chengdu, Hangzhou (Shanghai), Bombay, Christchurch, New Delhi, Seoul, Tokyo, Osaka, Taipei, Paris, and London. In the long run, we hope to transform Jakarta into a critical international transit hub, said Dharmadi.
