On 2 June 2016 at 0900 WIB, Angkasa Air flight Seri-200 PK-SUB flying Singapore-Surabaya with full passenger, crashed upon approaching Juanda Airport. The plane was badly damaged and on fire, just 300 meters from the west runway. On 1100 WIB, a fire accident occurred in one of the restaurant located in boarding room of Terminal 2, and on 1400 a hostile terrorist attack occurred in the same Terminal, causing all passengers to be panicked and emotionally shocked.
These are the scenarios of the recent Emergency Respond Exercise in Juanda Airport, initiated by Angkasa Pura 1, as part of their routine exercise to see the readiness of authorities during emergency situations. AP-1 invited observers from 12 airports under AP-1, as well as observers from various aviation related institutions.
Juanda Airport is the main gateway to eastern Indonesia, which requires a special attention on aviation safety and security assurance.
This Emergency Respond Exercise is the 5th time to be held in Juanda in the last 10 years, and the 88th times to be held by AP-1 since its establishment. The planned and unplanned situation are expected to improve the quality of staff readiness to overcome the worst situation which might be occurred in airport operation
