JEMBER – The central government plans to extend the runway at Notohadinegoro Airport to a length of 2.400 meters long so the airport will be able to accommodate Airbus plane. Ministry of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi said the extension of runway length is a follow up of President Jokowi’s idea during a visit to Jember.

With a 2.400 meters runway, an Airbus type aircraft will able to land on Notohadinegoro airport. Airbus is a type of aircraft owned by all national commercial airlines.

The central government has allocated a budget of 370 Billion IDR sourced from the state budget. The construction of the runway will begin in 2018. “We have budgeted as much as 370 Billion IDR,” Budi closes.
