Premium Analysis

Indonesia's Ministry of Transport (MoT) intends shortly to commence Phase I of a public-private partnership (PPP) scheme to develop regional airports by opening management bids for Bandar Lampung Radin Inten II, Komodo and Palu Mutiara Airports, the first three of ten airports.

The MoT described these three airports as being "facilities that would attract the most interest" and expected to receive competitive tender offers.

MoT's director Bambang Tjahjono advised that in Mar-2014 national airline Garuda Indonesia filed an expression of interest to develop Komodo Airport.

The other seven airports are: Bengkulu, Jayapura Sentani, Matahora, Palangkaraya Tjilik Riwut,Tanjung, Tarakan Juwata and Ternate Babullah.

Indonesia is committed to construction in the airport sector. Ten new airports were constructed in 2013 and another 15 will be in 2014, at a cost of USD3.3 billion. A second airport serving Jakarta may be built on reclaimed land in Jakarta Bay.
