In terms of personnel and facilities, in previous days we were on standby 24 hours. “So, of course, these additional hours, both facilities and human resources, are very ready to be operational until 24.00 WIB,” added Sisyani.

According to him, with the increase in operational hours, he is optimistic that this will also be balanced by an increase in the number of planes and passengers.

“The addition of operational hours means that we are also opening up many opportunities for airlines to increase flight frequency or new routes, both domestic and international,” said Sisyani.

Meanwhile, until February 2024, Juanda International Airport has served 2,132,815 passengers with 14,801 aircraft movements .
