Jakarta - Soekarno-Hatta International Airport recorded on time performance (OTP) schedule of flight departures reaching 93.8% in February 2019.
This encouraging level of OTP is based on research from an independent institution recognized by the global aviation industry, OAG. The high OTP results make Soekarno-Hatta in the Top 25 airports with the best OTP.
OAG also noted that among the Top 100 airports with the best OTP, the number of flights in Soekarno-Hatta was the second most reached 16,093 flights in February 2019.
The airport with the highest number of flights was Changi in Singapore with 16,393 flights, but the OTP rate was 90.4% or still below Soekarno-Hatta.
OAG is a world-leading company based in the UK that provides digital aviation, intelligence and analytic information for airports, airlines and travel technology companies.
PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) President Director Muhammad Awaluddin said this positive performance had an impact on improving services to aircraft passengers.
He said that operations in an integrated airport and supported by information technology systems were able to make Soekarno-Hatta operate effectively.
"Since 2017, Soekarno-Hatta has an integrated command post called the Airport Operation Control Center or AOCC, where this is the result of collaboration from Airport Operators, Airline Operators, Air Navigation, and Authorities such as Quarantine, Customs, Immigration, Police, and so forth. "
"All operations, both the air side and the land side, are monitored by AOCC to produce effective performance, and the results are proven by the Soekarno-Hatta OTP which is very encouraging, translating to almost 94%," Muhammad Awaluddin said.
AOCC itself is equipped with modules namely Airport Operation Database (AODB), Airport Management System (AMS), Resources Management System (RMS), Network Management System (NMS), Airport Security System (ASS), and Facility Engineering Management System (FEMS).
The AODB module is used to store operating data, then AMS and RMS to monitor and control airport operations such as managing resources such as parking stands, boarding gates and check-in counters.
Meanwhile, NMS displays network performance and information technology tools in managing and distributing operating data to a number of stakeholders, and FEMS functions to monitor, control and manage the reliability of major airport facilities.
"We are very confident that if the third runway project and east cross taxiway have been completed, the number of flights at Soekarno-Hatta Airport will increase and be accompanied by increasingly high OTP levels," explained Muhammad Awaluddin.
Previously, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport was ranked 6th in the list of the best airports in the world in 2019 which served 60-70 million passengers per year.
The award was given by Skytrax, an independent agency from the UK, based on a survey of services and facilities conducted on aircraft passengers in 550 airports around the world from August 2017 to February 2018.
In the Best Airport 2019: 60-70 Million Passenger category, Soekarno-Hatta ranks outperformed Bangkok Suvarnabhumi (7), Dallas / Fort Worth (8), Delhi (9), and New York JFK (10).
PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) President Director Muhammad Awaluddin said the development of hard infrastructure and soft infrastructure brought Sukarno-Hatta in line with other world-class airports.
"Soekarno-Hatta is already in line with other world-class airports. For the past several years, AP II and all stakeholders including the government have been optimizing and maximizing development in Soekarno-Hatta in order to improve services. We are grateful that the development carried out received positive appreciation from the passengers of the aircraft. "
"Being in the top 10 of the world's best airports, precisely ranked 6th, is the result of the commitment and hard work of all stakeholders in Soekarno-Hatta in order to make Indonesia famous in the international world," said Muhammad Awaluddin.
Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is currently the busiest airport in Indonesia with annual passengers reaching more than 60 million passengers.
