TRIBUNBATAM.id - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) said that the construction of Yogyakarta International Airport (YIA) is the best in Indonesia at this time.

"I thank PP and AP I, I see, in my opinion, the work is the best for now in Indonesia," Jokowi said at the inauguration of YIA, as quoted by Antara, Saturday (29/8/2020).

YIA Airport is an airport built to replace Adi Sutjipto Airport, which is now only intended for military aircraft. The construction of Yogyakarta International Airport was very fast, only taking 20 months. 

Then, what are the features of YIA Airport that Jokowi is proud of? 

1. Designed to be earthquake and tsunami resistant

President Jokowi said that the newly designed YIA Airport has earthquake resistance up to 8.8 on the Richter scale and can withstand tsunami waves up to a height of 12 meters.

"Mrs. Dwikorita, Head of BMKG told me, this building can withstand tsunami waves up to a height of 12 meters. InsyaAllah, this has been well designed," Jokowi said as quoted from the Setkab website, Saturday (29/8/2020). 

2. Has a very long runway

This new airport has a runway length of 3,250 meters, or longer than the old Yogyakarta Adisutjipto airport which was only 2,200 meters. This new airport can accommodate large aircraft such as the Airbus A330 or Boeing 777.
