"Right now, Lampung has two commercial airports. They are Radin Inten II Airport and Gatot Subroto Airport.. Hopefully, (the presence of the two airports) will spur regional economic growth," he said.
After being inaugurated, the airport will serve Waykanan-Jakarta and Waykanan-Palembang (South Sumatra).flight routes, he said.
It is time to turn Gatot Subroto Airport into a commercial airport since it is located near the three districts of North Lampung, West Lampung and Waykanan in Lampung Province and the three districts of East Ogan Komering Ulu, South Ogan Komering Ulu and Ogan Komering Ulu in South Sumatra Province.
"May these flights serve as a magnate for those wishing to travel by air because the travel will take shorter time," he said.
