(4/6/2009)

The development of the Lombok International Airport, in the village of Tana Awu in Central Lombok, will be completed in October 2009. The confirmation of the planned completion date for the modern airport was announced in a meeting between Vice-President Jusuf Kalla, Transportation Minister Jusman Syafeii Djamal and Minister for State-Owned Enterprises Sofyan Djalil in the capital of Lombok, Mataram, on Sunday, March 29, 2009.

As reported by Kompas, that meeting was used by Vice-President Kalla to emphasize that the Lombok International Airport and all supporting facilities must be finished in accordance the development plans agreed with Dubai's Emaar Properties LLC for Central Lombok. The Emaar Group is reportedly reconsidering its US$600 million tourism development for Lombok.

The Minister for State-Owned Enterprises and the Minister of Transportation led an official group that surveyed the Lombok airport project declaring that the runway was 69.91% and the apron and taxiway 97.59% completed. The Ministerial group also estimated that the terminal and parking area were 35.21% built.

The Lombok airport, when completed, will cover an area of 551 hectares, an area twice that of Bali's international airport.

The main runway in Lombok is 2,750 meters long and 45 meters wide with facilities sufficient to handle 1 million passengers each year and aircraft as large as a Boeing 747.

The cost of constructing the Lombok Airport is put at Rp. 802 billion (US$71.6 million) and is slated for completion in October 2009 and operations in early 2010.
