New Medan Airport-Kuala Namu International Airport

Wed Jul 24, 2013 2:44 pm

In a couple of hours, Medan Polonia Airport (MES), Indonesia is closed for commercial and civil flight, and will only served as military airbase. All commercial and civil flight will shift to the new Kuala Namu International Airport. The new Kuala Namu International Airport will be on operation from 25th July, 2013 00:01. Kuala Namu International Airport (KNO) is believed to be the second largest airport in Indonesia and one of the most advanced airport in term of technology in Indonesia. It has a capacity of 9 million pax per annum, and has a longer runway that will be able to accomodate A380.

Great news for Medan. I was wondering when the new airport was going to open... it's been complete for many years, but as I understand it, the runway had to be demolished and rebuilt after it was found to be faulty.
