Indonesian flag-carrier Garuda Indonesia has announced that it is targeting to transport 35.2 million passengers in 2015, based on continuing positive signals from the Indonesian economy, the airline’s director says.
“Of course, to be able to meet this target we are going to need to improve infrastructure, for example by opening new access like new roads or even railways to airports,” Garuda CEO Emirsyah Satar said Thursday as quoted by kompas.com.
Satar added that this year Garuda targeted to transport 17 million passengers, including from its low-cost carrier Citilink.
Commenting on this, Tri Sunoko of PT Angkasa Pura II said the airport operator was currently working to expand the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport near Jakarta.
He said the company planned to start building additional airport infrastructures by the year 2014.
