Sultan Syarif Kasim II International Airport

Sultan Syarif Kasim II International Airport (IATA: PKU, ICAO: WIBB) is an international airport that serves the city of Pekanbaru, Riau, Indonesia. The airport is often referred as to SSK II, SSK or Sultan Syarif Qasim II International Airport (SSQ II), and formerly known as Simpang Tiga Airport. The namesake of the airport is Sultan Syarif Kasim II, the last sultan of Siak and an Indonesian National Hero. The airport serves flights to and from several cities and towns in Indonesia and neighbouring countries such as Malaysia and Singapore. The airport area and runway is also shared with Roesmin Nurjadin Air Force Base, a Type A airbase of the TNI-AU (Indonesian Air Force). The airbase is named after the former Chief of Indonesian Air Force, Cmdr. Roesmin Nurjadin. Starting in early December 2014, it served as the homebase of 16 F-16 squadrons upon completion, the additional squadron which is Skadron Udara 16, comprising a fleet of F-16 Blok 52RI and existing Skadron Udara 12 Black Panthers, comprising a fleet of Hawk Mk.109s and Mk.209s. In early 2010, the first phase of the airport's expansion started with the construction of a new terminal to replace the original terminal built in the 1980s. The original terminal was demolished to make way for additional parking spaces. The new terminal will sport a modern design with three jetways and a larger apron. Despite the opening of the new terminal in 2012, two out of the three jet bridges commenced operation in late July 2014. This is the first time in the history of the airport that jet bridges were utilised.

Pekanbaru

Pekanbaru (Jawi: ڤكنبارو, Chinese: 北干巴鲁; pinyin: Běi gānbā lǔ), is the capital of Riau, on the island of Sumatra . It has an area of 632.26 km² with a population of 950,571, making it Sumatra's fourth largest municipality, after Medan, Palembang, and Batam, and the 9th-largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung, Medan, Semarang, Makassar, Palembang, and Batam. It is located on the banks of the Siak River, which drains into the Strait of Malacca. As a result, Pekanbaru has direct access to the busy strait and was long known as a trading port (the city name is derived from the Indonesian words for 'new market', "pekan" meaning 'market' and "baru" meaning 'new'). The city is divided into 12 subdistricts (kecamatan). This city is served by the Sultan Syarif Kasim II International Airport and Sungai Duku Port that is located by the Siak River. A settlement has existed on the site since the 17th century. In the late 19th century, the city was developed to serve the coffee and coal industries, and the Dutch built roads to help ship goods to Singapore and Malacca.
