The program will include case studies such as ASEAN Aviation Policy and Hang Nadim and Kertajati Airports.

The security and safety session will include a presentation then will look at a global view of airport security before a panel discussion identifying performance gaps in Indonesian aviation security, followed by an airline’s perspective on airport security and advancing landside security.  The passenger experience session will focus on enhancing passenger facilitation with Muhammad Awaluddin, President Director, PT Angkasa Pura looking at efficient passenger processes and automated border control followed by a case study on Changi Airport and meeting passenger expectations.

On day two, opened by Arief Yahya, Minister of Tourism, Republic of Indonesia, the Airport Development in Indonesia session will examine developing airports as the gateway to Indonesia, regional airports expansions and renovations and also look at ground handling, with further case studies among other topics. Finally, the Innovative Services and Technology session will feature a case study on Cochin International Airport looking at powering airports through renewable energy and another on building an airport operating system studying Auckland Airport.
