Travel Daily Asia - - News -

The op­er­a­tors of Jakarta's Soekarno- Hatta In­ter­na­tional Air­port have ac­quired three vil­lages, which will now be lev­elled to make way for new run­ways.

In­done­sia's An­tara news agency re­ports that PT Angkasa Pura II, a state- owned air­port com­pany, has ac­quired a to­tal of 173.2 hectares of land cur­rently oc­cu­pied by the vil­lages of Rawa Bu­rung, Bo­jong Renged and Rawa Ren­gas. Com­pen­sa­tion has been agreed with res­i­dents, which is said to vary de­pend­ing on the plot.

Fol­low­ing the land deal, the devel­op­ment of Soekarno- Hatta's third run­way is ex­pected to be com­pleted by 2018. A fourth run­way could then be added by 2024. This fol­lows the open­ing of Jakarta air­port's third ter­mi­nal last sum­mer.
