Govt to Build Padeglang Airport to Boost Tanjung Lesung Tourism

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - In a bid to boost the development of a tourist destination at Tanjung Lesung in Banten, the government announced a plan to build an airport in Pandeglang Regency.

Transportation Ministry secretary-general Sugihardjo said his office is in the process of preparing a feasibility study for the airport.

“The development of a tourist destination must be supported by transportation accesses. We’re currently conducting a study for the development of an airport in Pandeglang to support the Tanjung Lesung tourism,” Sugihardjo said in Serang, Banten, on Monday, December 4.

Sugihardjo explained that Banten has had Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Tangerang. However, he clarified that the airport is prioritized for international flights. In addition, the distance between the airport and Pandeglang is quite far.

The new airport in Pandeglang is expected to boost the economy of South Banten. Sugihardjo added that transportation infrastructures, such as an airport, would improve goods distribution and support the mobility.
