New passenger terminal opens at Indonesia’s Balikpapan Sepinggan Airport

A new passenger terminal has opened at Balikpapan Sepinggan International Airport located on the Eastern coast of Indonesia, by the city of Balikpapan.

The IDR2 trillion (£107m) terminal, which has taken three years to construct, has increased capacity at the airport from 1.7 million to 10 million passengers per year.

The 110,000m² terminal was built in response to rising passenger traffic. According to data from state-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura, the number of passengers passing through Sepinggan International reached 7.1 million passengers last year, up 16% compared to 2012.

Operations director of PT Angkasa Pura in Balikpapan, Yushan Sayuti, said the completion of the new terminal has made Sepinggan International the largest airport in eastern Indonesia.

Sayuti described Sepinggan International as an “eco-airport” which maximises the use of natural sunlight and is now equipped with a recycling water plant and a controlled air conditioning system to reduce energy consumption.

The new terminal features 74 check-in counters, eight baggage conveyor 
belts, an extended 140,900m² aircraft apron, and a four-storey parking lot with 2,300 spaces.

Construction work on the new terminal began in August 2011 and ended
earlier this month. The new terminal officially began operating on 22 March 2014.

PT Angkasa Pura said the old terminal will be used by chartered planes and plans are underway to construct a new hotel to increase the firm’s revenues.
