History[edit]

In 1962, Perusahaan Negara (PN) Angkasa Pura Kemayoran was established after a formal request by president Sukarno. It first started to control operations for the Kemayoran Airport (JKT) in Jakarta. In 1965, PN Angkasa Pura Kemayoran was renamed PN Angkasa Pura. In 1974, as the company became publicly administrated, PN Angkasa Pura changed from a state-owned company (perusahaan negara (PN)) to a public company (perusahaan umum (Perum)) and the company name was changed to Perum Angkasa Pura.[2]

Another name change came in 1987, when Perum Angkasa Pura became Perum Angkasa Pura I following the establishment of Perum Angkasa Pura II.[2][3] Perum Angkasa Pura II was established to control the operation of Soekarno–Hatta International Airport (CGK) and Halim Perdanakusuma Airport (HLP) in Jakarta.[2][3]

In 1992, both Perum Angkasa Pura I and Perum Angkasa Pura II were again renamed to Perseroan Terbatas (PT) Angkasa Pura I and PT Angkasa Pura II.[2][3] Since then, these two companies have operated the major airports in Indonesia.

Operations[edit]

Angkasa Pura operates the following airports:

In 2010, Angkasa Pura II made profit of Rp.1,264 trillion. 7 airports suffered losses, but 5 airport made profit. Soekarno Hatta International Airport got profit Rp.1,573 trillion (US$160 million). The other airports which got profit were Polonia Medan airport, Sultan Syarif Kasim Pekanbaru airport, Supadio Pontianak airport and Husein Sastra Negara Bandung airport.[4]

Overburdened airports[edit]

In 2010, PT Angkasa Pura I combined capacity was 30 million passengers, but handled 49 million passengers, while PT Angkasa Pura II combined capacity was only 28 million passengers, but handled 62 million passengers. The most heavily burden airports were Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Polonia International Airport, Ngurah Rai International Airport and Juanda International Airport.[5]

Hotels[edit]

PT Angkasa Pura I will build hotels at Juanda International Airport and Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport in 2011. The investment is Rp.50 billion ($5.8 million) and both hotels will be operated by Accor under the Formule 1 brand.[6]

FLIPMAC[edit]

PT Angkasa Pura I will build Flight Plan and Flow Management Centre (FLIPMAC) in Surabaya to cover also Bali, Makassar and Balikpapan and become the centre of Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) nationwide due to Surabaya's point of intersection between domestic and international routes and Jakarta–Surabaya flight path is the world's fifth-most populous and fourth most populous in the Asia Pacific region with 760 flights traffic per week. The system will monitor all the movements of planes from refuelling, baggage, and start catering to aircraft engines and given a time limit and for approaching aircraft, altitude and airspeed settings are also monitored long before the plane arrived at the airport so that aircraft avoid holding or delay. The initial phase will be installed in late 2012[needs update] and is expected to be operational in mid-2013 with investment about Rp40 billion.[7]
