Indonesia: NYIA airport in Yogyakarta designed with tsunami threats in mind

Source(s):  Tempo Interactive

Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi claims that disaster mitigation has been integrated into the design of the upcoming New Yogyakarta International Airport (NYIA) - also known as Kulon Progo Airport - considering its location is 400 meters from Yogyakarta’s ‘south beach’ coastline.

“A large scale tsunami is one of many elements that we have anticipated and it is why we hired experts from Japan, ITB, and UGM,” said Budi Karya in a written statement this morning.


Not only providing multi-level airport construction, Minister Budi said that the tsunami mitigation is incorporated within the airport’s structural design, such as with trees in its vicinity and structures that act as tsunami barriers.
