This July has come signed by the Seoul Women University students visit to IPB for cultural exchange program. Since agreement between two university established few years ago, Korean student have big deal to promote culture of Korea. And this session I and my friends get involved as committee to organize a week event.

We picked up ten SWU student at Soekarno-Hatta airport by using IPB Bus while they arrived at Terminal 2 after around 7 hours flight with Garuda Indonesia GA879. I was sincerely so surprised to prove they came with lot of stuffs bounded. When I tried to ask, they were associated with Canaan Foundation to volunteer in Sukabumi as running program after IPB session has timed up.

Adi Sucipto International Airport : YOGYAKARTA

Jogja Airport

"Less Distant To Go Where Else"

Just stepping by no more than a mile, you'll reach the near city airport Adi Sucipto International Airport at hearth of Yogyakarta (Jogja) lying at very less distant to go where else. One thing that makes this airport unique is half of occupation broken through line of intercity train at above. Thus, passengers have to pass below inside tunnel then emerge up at other side.

At right place where the train passing through there's a station named Stasiun Bandara and a hub point of Trans Jogja in front of the airport. Going to reach other place is such convenient and cheap in Jogja.

Jogja International Airport strictly apply regulation by the law of transportation. The security is tight enough but never been paranoid so far you don't bring forbidden stuff. A worrying experience I got at this airport once I wear my backpack. The officer asked me till thrice for repetition of X-Ray checking as they make me such suspescious person. And geez! Some plastic bags piled inside the backpack chaotically for my immediate packing were suspicion. Ops! This really made me limped down.

But the officers were really friendly, they apologized for inconvenient. Well, it was my stupidity, too. So, just check carefully your belonging first before taking x-ray security, there might be unnecessary stuffs piled in.

SOETTA : Terminal 3

Soekarno-Hatta International Airport

I blogged in to post this kinda 'oldish' article but still encourageously pull me to write down. Actually I had been in passion to do thing just almost few months ago, but postponed for unreliable reason, fainted it away from my mind and just now has been revived.

Well, apparently airport means for plotting some airlines and taxing people go-and-in. But it soon extended to go beyond multifunctional venue. I see the development of the biggest airport in this country [read: Indonesia Raya Merdeka] is immediate thus SOETTA been widen since high demand and traffic growing faster every year. Indeed Airport Council International has put this airport as the Most Busiest Airport by Passenger Traffic 2010 in region of South East Asia followed by Suvarnabhumi Airport (Thailand) and Changi Airport (S'pore) respectively. Even so ranked 5th in Asia below Beijing Capital, Narita Tokyo, Hongkong Int., and Dubai Airport.

So, the presence of Terminal 3 for Low-Cost Airlines such Air Asia Indonesia (domestic) and Mandala Air is hoped to answer at least. But now only Air Asia (QZ) alone operates at T3 due to striking status of Mandala Air.

Herewith I depicted few photos of T3 around few months ago after a flight from Adi Sucipto-Yogyakarta:

Though Terminal 3 has been operated, but apparently it's not such significant solving. Thus the government plans to build the new Terminal 4 in 2020 (long time later).

For design, T3 looks different rather than its ancestors, T1 and T3. which stand with very Indonesia form. The material concept is environmental friendly through its open-up light system with glass or other transparent stuffs surrounding. But it still looks ordinary from outside (design is plain) though inside is almost good.
