Kediri airport is the first privately developed airport in Indonesia. Situated 150 kilometres from Surabaya, the airfield and associated buildings cover an area of 330 hectares.
Initiated by PT Gudang Garam, the airport is being built to provide improve connectivity and boost the economy of the southern part of the East Java province, as well as to supplement the operation of Juanda International Airport. Davy Sukamta & Partners was appointed as the earthwork consultant for this project.
Design and construction of the earthwork for the platform were complex. The project consists of a cut and fill excavation up to 35 metres high on the slope of Mount Willis, which necessitated the use of various ground improvement techniques.
