Penajam Paser Utara (ANTARA) – Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi is optimistic that VVIP Naratetama Airport can serve narrow-body aircraft starting August 1 2024.

This airport was built as supporting infrastructure for the new capital city (IKN) of the Archipelago in East Kalimantan.

The Minister said that the first layer of asphalting was being carried out on the runway at Naratetama Airport which was being built by the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR).

“We are optimistic that by August 1 2024 this airport will be able to accommodate narrow-body aircraft,” said Sumadi, Saturday.

According to the Minister of Finance, the airport will have a runway of 3,500 meters, with a target of 2,200 meters being completed in July 2024 and ready in December 2024.

Sumadi, during his visit to Naratetama Airport, said that the airport could also accommodate wide-body aircraft, along with the addition of an asphalt layer which would be carried out at a later stage.

He said that Naratetama Airport is capable of landing large aircraft such as the Boeing 777-3000ER and Airbus A380, with a runway designed to be 3,500 meters long and 45 meters wide.

He noted that the progress of airport construction and the provision of other supporting facilities was good and showed significant development.

“When compared with the conditions a few weeks ago, the progress is very visible, especially the runway and terminal buildings,” said Sumadi.

The construction of the terminal building is entering the roof, electrical, piping and column work stages, as well as installation of piping, steel frames and walls, as well as other supporting facilities.

The Minister of Finance said that the terminal building at Naratetama Airport would also highlight Kalimantan culture.

Apart from Naratetama Airport, the PUPR Ministry is also in the process of completing the construction of a ceremonial field at IKN for the Indonesian Independence Day ceremony on August 17 2024.

As of June 14, construction progress had reached 70 percent.

The PUPR Ministry targets construction of the ceremonial field to be completed in July 2024.
