JAKARTA, 25 Julai (Bernama) -- Penantian 19 tahun penduduk Sumatera Utara

untuk sebuah lapangan terbang baharu yang lebih besar berakhir hari ini apabila

Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Namu di daerah Deli Serdang, memulakan

operasinya dengan lancar melalui penerbangan perdana pesawat syarikat

penerbangan Garuda Indonesia 5.15 pagi ini.

Penerbangan sulung dari lapangan terbang Kuala Namu pagi ini merupakan

pelancaran awal sebelum acara perasmian besar-besaran oleh Presiden Indonesia

Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono pada September ini.

Lapangan terbang Kuala Namu yang berharga Rp5.8 trilion itu, mampu

mengendalikan 8.1 juta penumpang setahun pada fasa pertama dan menjadi lapangan

terbang kedua terbesar di Indonesia selepas Soekarno-Hatta di Cengkareng,

Tengerang.

Reka bentuk lapangan terbang baharu itu membolehkan ia dikembangkan lagi

untuk fasa berikutnya sehingga mencapai kapasiti maksimum pengendalian 22.1 juta

penumpang setahun.

Pembangunan fizikal lapangan terbang itu melibatkan kawasan seluas 1,365

hektar manakala luas terminalnya ialah 118,930 meter persegi.

Menteri Badan untuk Syarikat Berkaitan Kerajaan (BUMN) Dahlan Iskan berkata

lapangan terbang Polonia Medan akan diserahkan kembali kepada pemilik asalnya

iaitu tentera udara Indonesia (TNI-AU).

Timbalan Gabenor Sumatera Utara Erry Nuradi memberitahu wartawan tempatan

pada Khamis bahawa penduduk Sumatera Utara menunggu 19 tahun hingga lapangan

terbang Kuala Namu beroperasi, di mana sejak 1994 pengambilan balik tanah sudah

dilakukan.

Erry menyampaikan ucapan terima kasih penduduk dan kerajaan Sumatera Utara

kepada kerajaan pusat Indonesia kerana telah membangunkan lapangan terbang

Kuala Namu, yang mereka yakini dapat merancakkan lagi pembangunan di Sumatera

Utara.
