The long-awaited train shuttling passengers between Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Tangerang, is set to launch later this week after delays.

The terminal link is the first stage of an ambitious project to update infrastructure at the ailing airport and is planned to include connections with Terminal 1 as well as eventually a train line connecting the airport to Jakarta.

Muhammad Awaluddin, Director of airport operator Angkasa Pura II, told Detik the single track route is set to open Sunday, Sept. 17.

The train will initially be manned before moving to automation over the next six months.

“After the first six months of operations, we can make it driverless. There are safety and risk factors involved,” Awaluddin said.

Terminal transfers have long been difficult for the millions of passengers who travel through the airport each year. Currently, free shuttle buses are used to transfer passengers. The two-carriage train will carry over 350 passengers per trip, with a journey between the three terminals expected to take less than 10 minutes.
