Indonesia's Padang Minangkabau International airport is set to have a new terminal building ready next year.
A soft launch is targeted for February and full operations for September.
Upon the completion of the new building, airport operator Angkasa Pura II will begin work to combine the new building with that of the existing terminal. This will raise the airport's annual handling capacity from 2.2 million passengers to 5.7 million.
In addition to the new terminal building, Angkasa Pura II has increased the number of aircraft parking stands from eight to 15 by expanding the apron space, which is now capable of handling aircraft up to the size of Boeing 747s and 777s.
Cirium schedules data shows that seat capacity departing Padang in November is dominated by Lion Air, with a 44.7% market share. Citilink, Garuda Indonesia and Batik Air are the next largest operators at the airport.
