Long-awaited airport train finally running

Jakarta Airport Train Finally Running

PT Railink workers check the equipment of the new airport train in Manggarai Train Depot, Jakarta, Friday, November 24, 2017. The train will connect downtown Jakarta from Sudirman Station and Soekarno Hatta Airport in tangerang with capacity of 33.000 passengers each day. PT Railink will conduct the test run of the train on December 2017. (JP/Seto Wardhana.)

During a trial period from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 passengers are charged Rp 30,000 (US$2.2) for a one-way ticket. On Jan. 2, the fare will increase to Rp 70,000, and eventually it will increase to Rp 100,000 per trip.

For 36.3km journey, I consider ticket fares to be rather expensive. Promotional price of 2800 MMK will become regular price of 6600 MMK starting January 2, 2018. And, eventually, it will become 9500 MMK. But, if you have experienced Jakarta’s notorious traffic from airport to city, you’d probably be more glad that you have new travelling option.

Yangon chief minister a rising star and ‘very sharp’ politician

Each generation produces its own leaders, he said. Just as Myanmar’s pro-independence struggle threw up its founding father Aung San, its democratic struggle produced Ms Suu Kyi, his daughter. The NLD’s Parliament speakers and ministers are well qualified, he added.
