LCCs relocate to new Medan airport

AIRLINES have started shifting operations to Kualanamu International Airport in Medan, and will begin flying out of the new facility on July 25.

Valuair and Firefly are the latest carriers to move over to the new airport located in the Deli Serdang regency in North Sumatra, about 42km from Medan city centre.

Passengers travelling to and from Medan from July 25 onwards will be sent an updated itinerary.

Last week, AirAsia announced it had completed systems migration to Kualanamu (TTG Asia e-Daily, July 17, 2013).

The new Kualanamu International Airport is Indonesia’s second-largest airport after Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport, according to Firefly’s media release, and replaces the congested Polonia International Airport.

Located on the outskirts of Medan, Polonia will be converted into a military airport.
