BANDUNG, (DETIK.COM), – The West Java Provincial Government allows the use of assets for apron construction, taxi way and extension of the runway of West Java International Airport (BIJB) or Kertajati Airport to PT Angkasa Pura (AP) II.

West Java Regional Secretary Iwa Karniwa said that after the issuance of the permit PT AP II could immediately extend the runway from 2,500 meters to 3,000 meters. In addition AP II can also build aprons and airport taxiways.

“In order to extend the three things, the letter was from the governor. Later the asset handover agreement will be followed. Later the AP II assets and construction will become equity participation,” said Iwa, at the West Java MUI Office, Bandung City, West Java, Monday (15 / 10/2018).

Iwa added, BIJB’s air side development was the result of a meeting of related parties together with West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil on 1 October. The development process is also expected to be completed by the end of this year so that large-sized aircraft can land on the BIJB.

“It is targeted to be completed this year. With the permit AP II can do development,” he said.

Furthermore, according to the regulation on the management of state and regional property, the status of the use of regional goods will be determined to be utilized by other parties by considering the inclusion of land assets from the West Java Provincial Government and the buildings from AP II to PT BIJB.

“Our assets are allowed to be used for extension of runways, then parallel, taxiways and expansion of aprons, so there are three. The next process becomes BIJB assets, part of the capital participation will be further processed,” explained Iwa.
