Aug-2018. Indonesia's Minister of State Owned Enterprises Rini Soemarno stated the government is progressing plans to develop the New Jakarta Airport.

The air traffic is already very heavy in Jakarta. Adding an airport in Marunda would disturb the current air traffic arrangement." The Governor has requested the Indonesian Government to transfer land owned by the state-owned forestry operator, Perhutani, to the local government for the development. Mr Purnama advised: "We could save trillions of rupiah if we build an airport on Perhutani’s land because we do not need to spend money for land acquisition."

Mr Mangindaan said the Ministry hopes to have the first stage of the new airport operational by 2020.
