Three new airport trains to operate this year

KONTAN.CO.ID - JAKARTA. After the inauguration of the airport train in Jakarta by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo on Tuesday, the government plans to operate airport trains in three other cities – Padang in West Sumatra, Palembang in South Sumatra and Surakarta in Central Java.

Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said on Tuesday in Jakarta that the airport trains in Padang and Palembang were scheduled to be operated in May, while another one in Surakarta was expected to begin operating in November.

“PT Railink will also be the train operator. The government is the sole investor of [the three airport trains],” said Budi, referring to the subsidiary of state-owned railway operator PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI), which is currently also the operator of the airport train in Jakarta as reported by kompas.com.

An airport train from Kualanamu Airport in Medan was the first airport train to operate in Indonesia.

Currently, the airport train networks from Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II Airport in Palembang, Minangkabau Airport in Padang and Adi Sumarmo Airport in Surakarta are being constructed, the minister added.

The airport train operates 42 single trips per day. Services from South Jakarta’s Sudirman Baru Station start at 3:51 a.m., with the last train departing at 9:51 p.m., as several facilities at Manggarai Station are still under construction.

From Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, trains run at hourly intervals, with the first train departing at 6:10 a.m. and the last train departing at 11:10 p.m. Tickets are available at a flat price of Rp 70,000 (US$4.90).
