PT Angkasa Pura II is aiming for the management of two airports in the Southeast Asia region through the auction process.

According to the President Director of PT Angkasa Pura II Muhammad Awaluddin did not specify the two countries in question. However, the management auctions that followed were still in the neighboring regions.

“We are currently in the process. We hope that Semester I/2020 may already know the results. Previously, AP II tried its luck by participating in a tender in managing and developing Clark Airport in the Philippines. The results were not as expected, but this did not make the company disappointed,” he said.

He added, in addition to targeting the two countries, Awaluddin said he was also interested in managing tenders in the country. One airport namely Kualanamu in Medan is offered its management by AP II to strategic partners. In addition there is the Hang Nadim Airport in Batam, which the state-owned airport operator wants to manage.

“As is known, AP II has long looked at the management of Hang Nadim because it is in accordance with the vision of the company that wants to make its airport units as transit locations. Based on its strategic plan, AP II will juggle Batam to be able to compete with Changi Airport in Singapore,” he concluded. [antaranews]
