29 August 2017
Jakarta. Indonesian airports have gained more fame after Supadio International Airport in Pontianak, West Kalimantan, and Jambi's Sultan Thaha Airport topped the Airport Council International's 2017 second quarter "Airport Service Quality" report. The council, an independent organization with 592 airport operators managing 1,853 airports in 173 countries, recognized the Indonesian airports managed by Angkasa Pura II after a detailed study of their facilities and services. "These awards make us strive to become even better. Our airports have made us proud and contribute to the country's economic growth and tourism development," Angkasa Pura II director Muhammad Awaluddin said on Monday (31/07). The ACS report sets a benchmark in the global airport industry. "The survey includes the airport facilities construction and service quality," Awaluddin said. Supadio is the best among 80 airports of 2-5 million passengers’ capacity, while Sultan Thaha earned the top rank in the under 2 million categories. Tourism Minister Arief Yahya said the airports' world-class reputation is crucial for Indonesia's confidence and public trust. "Our confidence can be greater as we can be the world's champion and not feel intimidated by other countries," he added.
