In accordance with the cooperation agreement, Jaswita Jabar, BIJB, and Bank BJB are committed to building supporting facilities for the airport -- a three-star hotel -- with an investment of Rp661.9 billion.

President Director of Jaswita Jabar, Deni Nurdyana Hadimin, stated on Tuesday that the signing of the cooperation agreement was one of Jaswita Jabar's commitments to contributing to infrastructure development, particularly those related to the tourism industry in West Java.
