Indonesia considers alternative airport to Soekarno-Hatta

Indonesia's Government will consider building a new airport at the capital Jakarta to offset rising passenger traffic at Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (The Jakarta Post, 11-Aug-2010). The Directorate General of Air Transportation is cooperating with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to determine an appropriate location for the construction of the alternative airport. The JICA study is expected to be complete by the end of 2010.  Soekarno-Hatta Airport serves approximately 37 million passengers p/a, while Halim Perdana Kusumah and Pondok Cabe airports are considered not viable alternatives due to limited access.
