State-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II (AP II) is eyeing to manage the Clark International Airport in Manila part of its plans to expand internationally.
“We are invited [to take part in a tender] along with AirAsia,” AP II finance director Andra Y Agusalam said in Jakarta on Wednesday.
AP II had submitted a document of the tender that was also followed by operators of Zurich International Airport in Switzerland and the Changi International Airport in Singapore, Andra said.
He added that AP II president director Muhammad Awaluddin would go to Manila for the tender process.
The cost to manage the airport, which was a former United States airbase, is reported to be about Rp 350 billion (US$23.91 million).
“Our calculation is that 35 percent of the consortium is Rp 350 billion,” he added.
AP II currently operates dozens of airports in Indonesia, including the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Banten, the largest airport in the country.
