KNO | Kuala Namu International Airport

KUALA NAMU INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
OF MEDAN, NORTH SUMATRA, INDONESIA


Kuala Namu International Airport (also known as New Medan International Airport) is a new airport under construction to replace Polonia International Airport. Polonia airport is the site of several crashes, is inappropriately located in the centre of the city of Medan, has a difficult takeoff path and has a shorter runway. Construction began on 29 June 2006, shortly before the first anniversary of the crash of Mandala Airlines Flight 091. The airport is due for completion in mid-2011[2], and it will serve the city of Medan on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. The airport will cost at least 4.4 trillion Rupiah to build, or approximately US$473 million, using the August 2007 exchange rate.

Construction was previously promised in 1992 following previous crashes and safety concerns, but construction was shelved following the Asian monetary crisis. The airport is located 20km North East of Polonia airport, 3km from the sea, and on a site of area 6.5 x 2.1 km. Phase 1 (2010) of the new airport plans for 6.4 million passengers, of which 5.1 million would be domestic, 1.2 million international, and 0.14 million international transit passengers. By Phase 2 (2025), the airport would be servicing 14 million passengers, 2.5 million international, and 0.63 million international transit passengers.

The airport will be Indonesia's second largest, after Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, and will eventually have a capacity of 50 million passengers, a figure if realised today would place the airport in the top 10 busiest by passenger numbers in the world, although by the time this figure is achieved it is likely that there will be many airports carrying more passengers.

Airside facilities would be controlled by the Indonesian government, while landside facilities would be owned by a joint venture with PT Angakasa Pura II, which is expected to provide $350 million as an initial investment in return for a 30-year lease, after which ownership would revert to PT Angkasa Pura II. The airport will be linked to the city of Medan by a $215 million railway project.[citation needed]

The airport will be the first in Indonesia with a publicly accessible check-in area (current Indonesian airports restrict access to ticket holders with security at the gate). This means a much larger and more spacious check-in area than the existing airport. The airport is being designed by Wiratman & Associates, who also designed several other new airports and office buildings in Indonesia. Computer renderings showing a T-shape design are on the company's website.[5] Another rendering and master plan can be found in Angkasa Pura 2 website [6][7]. Also a visualization of the future airport video.

Polonia will be closed and will be converted to Central Business District for the city of Medan. Therefore, I believe the new airport will continue to carry MES as its code.

I really like the design of Kuala Namu but I will miss the name of Polonia for the airport. After all, it is the only airport in Indonesia if not Asia that is named after a foreign country - Poland since it was first built and used in the early 1920s.

By the way, the new airport is designed to handle up to 9 million passengers per year and no longer 6.4 million passengers.

Why was it named after Poland?

Except for the wavy roof which can also be seen in a lot modern airports, I don't see any similarity between the two terminals.

Because Polonia was built on a tobacco plantation obtained by a Polish through a concession from the Dutch back in the 1870s. The Polish named the plantation after his land of birth, Polonia.
