Jokowi to Inaugurate Airport Train Next Week

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President Joko Widodo will inaugurate Soekarno-Hatta airport train next week. Transportation Minister is pushing for a train fare of less than Rp100,000.

“We are evaluating the train fare. The President yesterday said that maybe it’s too expensive and we are considering a friendlier price,” Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said yesterday after a trial run of Soekarno-Hatta airport train in Tangerang.

Budi said that the fare is not yet set at Rp100,000 and will be discussed with state-owned railway company PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) and operator PT Railink.

He said that more trial runs will be carried out and engaging the public before being unveiled by President Joko Widodo next week.

“In one, two days ahead [the train] will be used more intensively ahead of the inauguration by Mr. President next week and massively used on January 1, 2018,” he said.

On the same occasion, PT Railink CEO Heru Kuswanto said that the company will undertake a trial run at a speed of 70 km per hour, while the previous one was 40 km per hour.

The airport train will stop at Sudirman, Duri and Batu Ceper stations.
