On February 25, 2015, Indonesia President Joko Widodo agreed to develop Juanda Airport City which consists such as an additional two runways to become a triple runway airport, and an integrated connection between Gubeng railway station with the airport via an elevated railway.[6][7] About 6,000 hectares of land have been prepared for the expansion of the airport - where in 1,500 hectares will be used to construct two additional runways, and Juanda Airport's Terminal 3, while the remaining area will be used to construct the Airport City and the Ultimate Terminal Building.[8]Terminal 3 will be predicted to handle 62.5 million passengers per year, with the overload Terminal 1 and 2, total passenger handling capacity will increase to 75 million passengers per year. Besides building Terminal 3, PT Angkasa Pura I will also be adding two new runways. The runways will be around 3850 meters long and 60% of it will be over the sea. If construction began with no delay it is predicted to open in 2019.

The new area for Juanda Airport is estimated to be 1,700 hectares and will be located in the northern part of the airport.[9]Construction of two runways by will require the reclamation of about four kilometers stretch of land along Java's northern coastline. The land acquisition is expected to be completed by 2018. Development consists of three phases;

  • First phase is the confirmation of the masterplan, land acquisition, reclamation for runway 2 and construction of runway 2.
