Connecting with new aviation markets in Europe and Asia

Before the escalation of the Covid-19 pandemic, Surbana Jurong secured a few notable project wins. Here are the project highlights:

Bucharest: First project win in Europe

Surbana Jurong’s Aviation team won its first project in Europe, to provide strategic planning for the development of Bucharest Brancusi Airport City in Romania from late last year. This project spans 28sqkm, seeking to increase the capacity of Bucharest Airport and also enhance it as a gateway to Central Eastern Europe.

This breakthrough in the expansion of Surbana Jurong’s Aviation presence in Europe is testament to its specialist expertise in managing the entire value chain of airport capabilities. These include airport and aerocity masterplanning; design management; airport terminal planning and design project management.

Surbana Jurong Aviation team has also achieved significant wins globally, with the majority of the wins concentrated in Asean, Australasia and Southeast Asia.

Surbana Jurong’s Director of Aviation, Yong Aik Fong, said: “This is the first project in Europe for the Surbana Jurong Aviation team. We are honoured to work with the South Development Group on the opportunity to produce a new world-class airport and airport city to connect nodes in varying parts of Central Eastern Europe and the world.” Congratulations to the team.

Growing a presence in Indonesia

Surbana Jurong Aviation has also chalked up three consultancy projects for key airport upgrade as well as the planning and construction of new airports in Indonesia, a growing infrastructure market in Southeast Asia.

Secured before the Covid-19 pandemic struck, these projects include the North Bali Airport, Kediri Airport Project, and Lombok International Airport. These projects establish our strong market position in the provision of Aviation specialist services beyond Singapore and provide us further business opportunities as the projects progress. Alongside our member companies, we implemented a suite of multidisciplinary Aviation expertise, ranging from consultancy, project management and masterplanning in Indonesia.

As Lombok island’s sole airport, Lombok International Airport was conceived to serve the large volume of tourists visiting annually. We were entrusted to conduct feasibility studies and recommendations to improve the existing airside and landside facilities to provide increased passenger capacity for the airport, which will benefit the island.

North Bali Airport consortium also called on our team to provide a comprehensive feasibility study and project proposal for a new airport on the island to reduce flight and passenger congestion at its existing airport in the South of the island

We were also been appointed by Kediri Airport’s owners to provide overall project inception advisory and project management consultancy for the development of the new airport on a greenfield site in East Java.

Christopher Shugg, Managing Director of Surbana Jurong Aviation, said: “We are confident that our recent project wins in Indonesia will strengthen Surbana Jurong Group’s Aviation track record and lead to further projects in the region.” It is understood that the Ground-Breaking ceremony for Kediri Airport shall be held in second quarter this year, pending the easing of restrictions over Covid-19 pandemic.
