Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Ministry of Transportation stated that floating airports, apart from being an alternative transportation option, can also attract foreign tourists to visit Indonesia.

“The operation of a floating airport for seaplanes in an archipelagic country like Indonesia can not only improve connectivity but can also be a new opportunity for regions in Indonesia to attract tourists,” said Head of the Ministry’s Transportation Policy Agency Robby Kurniawan in Jakarta, Thursday. .

According to the Head of the Agency, floating airports can enable regions to develop tourist destinations.

Kurniawan noted that airports on water have great potential for the country because they can become links between provinces and cities.

Apart from that, it can connect travelers from hub airports to water-based tourist destinations, as well as being a pioneer mode of transportation for archipelagic and archipelagic regions, especially in frontier, outermost and underdeveloped (3T) areas.

He explained that this year his party had carried out a policy analysis and feasibility study regarding the operation of a floating airport with general status, with a focus on proposing a pilot project in the southern region of Bali.

Based on a study carried out by this institution in collaboration with the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) in 2024, Bali was chosen as the location for the pilot project based on the highest number of tourist visits, both domestic and foreign, in Indonesia.

“Bali already has its own market share, the aviation industry in Bali is extraordinary, helicopter rental services are very developed, and there are many people interested, so seaplanes can be an alternative,” explained Kurniawan.

He emphasized that his party had tested the seaplane at Mertasari Beach, Bali.

The trial was carried out as an effort to encourage the area to become the first seaplane hub in Indonesia which would be connected to other potential locations, he explained.
