"We look forward to working with MRO stakeholders around the world," he said in a corporate release on Thursday (9/14/2017).
According to him since 2.5 years ago the Regional-owned enterprises was established and by the West Java Provincial Government through regional regulation No. 22 and 23 of 2013, it got the task of building a world-class airport and aerocity in Kertajati, Majalengka.
"In the process we realized that we were not just building an airport or an area or just building a gate, a gate for people and goods traffic was a gateway to improve Indonesia's economy, especially West Java," he said.
Virda explained that BIJB is a gate that is expected to serve wide-bodied aircraft, with capacity of 121,000m2 of passenger terminal and 90,000 m2 for cargo terminal.
To carry out the tasks of the Government, PT BIJB will develop airports and aerocity areas. "We have 6 clusters in the aerocity that we will develop," he said.
Exposed Virda, with the largest population in Indonesia, West Java plans to develop 3 metropolitan and 3 new economic growth centers, each will be equipped with airport to be connected to BIJB. "There are potential markets that MROs can consider,"
According to him, investment opportunities in this region are more interesting considering that today his side together with West Java Provincial Government is pushing the region into special economic region (KEK). Virda ensures the filing of aerocity into KEK will be an incentive for business people there. 'KEK is an incentive we are working on,' he explained.
While from the side of the airport itself the government has decided to use Kertajati as a place of pilgrim flights in 2018. (HUMAS-PT BIJB)
