JAKARTA- National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia is set to commence full operations at Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Banten, in April.
As reported by kompas.com on Monday, the newly built Terminal 3 was currently only serving the airline's domestic flights, while its international flights were still operating from Terminal 2.
State-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II director Muhammad Awaluddin said Garuda's international flights would move to Terminal 3 starting April, followed by other SkyTeam member airlines in May.
A target has also been set to move all international airlines to Terminal 3 in August.
After opening last year, Terminal 3 has yet to fully operate, as not all parts of the building have been developed.
Terminal 3 is part of Soekarno-Hatta's revitalization program. The Grand Design Soekarno-Hatta Airport program aims to expand the airport's passenger capacity by opening Terminal 3, as well as revitalizing terminals 1 and 2.
