Bisnis.com reports that the management companies for most Indonesian airports, Angkasa Pura I & II, have been asked to upgrade four major air gateways for the "ASEAN Open Sky" policy which will come into effect in 2015.

The four airports are: Soekarno-Hatta (Jakarta), Polonia (Medan, North Sumatra), Juanda (Surabaya) and Ngurah Rai (Denpasar). In the opinion of Indonesia's Minister of Transportation, Freddy Numberi, only Makassar's Sultan Hasanuddin Airport is fully prepared for open skies. "Sultan Hasanuddin Airport is very prepared; meanwhile the remaining four airports need development. This doesn't mean that the four remaining airport are not ready, but they still need modernization and improvements so they can be fully operational when ASEAN Open Sky commences," explained Numberi.

Explaining further, the Minister in charge of Indonesia's transportation said the four airports need added passenger capacity and supporting equipment, such as radar.

Citing Juanda Airport in Surabaya as one example, Numberi said that the planned capacity of 6 million passengers per year has already been exceeded with 11 million passengers flying via the East Java airport.

Numberi also called on Angkasa Pura II to undertake improvements at Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta airport.

Describing the future challenges posed by the ASEAN Open Skies policy, the Minister listed the need for high standards in customer service, radar and navigation equipment, runways, taxiways, apron and manpower training.

Indonesia is presently only preparing five rair gateways for full participation in ASEAN Open Skies starting in 2015 which will allow the free-flow of Southeast Asian airlines between major airports in the region.
