State-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II (AP II) and Changi Airport Group (CAG) held a meeting to discuss ways to accelerate recovery of the aviation sector impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

AP II President Director Muhammad Awaluddin and CAG CEO Lee Seow Hiang attended the meeting in the Soekarno-Hatta Airport area, Tangerang, on Wednesday (August 3).

"AP II and Changi Airport Group, as the two largest airport operators in the ASEAN region, are exploring cooperation, so that we can make a significant contribution in encouraging aviation recovery, both in Indonesia and Southeast Asia," Awaluddin noted here on Thursday.

Three forms of cooperation were explored at the meeting.

The first form of cooperation focused on tourism development, wherein AP II requested CAG to provide digital banners and other media platforms at Changi Airport to promote Indonesia's five super priority destinations: Borobudur Temple in Central Java, Mandalika in West Nusa Tenggara, Labuan Bajo in East Nusa Tenggara, Lake Toba in North Sumatra, and Likupang in North Sulawesi.

"(Hence,) International passengers after landing at Soekarno-Hatta Airport can continue their journey to the five super priority destinations," Awaluddin stated.

He elaborated that the second form of cooperation pertained to synergy in the implementation of the Airport Collaborative Decision Making (ACDM) between the two airports.

ACDM is a system that accommodates real-time information-based cooperation from all stakeholders, such as airport operators, airlines, ground handling, air traffic services, and other supporting partners.

"The synergy in the implementation of ACDM between Soekarno-Hatta Airport and Changi Airport can make the Jakarta-Singapore route more optimal and efficient, which leads to improved services for passengers," Awaluddin stated.

Currently, on average, 37 flights take off and land on the Jakarta-Singapore route, thereby making it one of the busiest international routes in the world.

Hence, AP II and CAG will form a team to discuss the implementation of ACDM.

The third form for cooperation is for the optimization of flights between AP II and Changi Airport Group with airlines during this recovery period, with this being implemented on the basis of applicable regulations.  (Antaranews)
