Kuala Namu International Airport (also known as New Medan International Airport) is a new airport under construction to replace Polonia International Airport. Polonia airport is the site of several crashes, is inappropriately located in the centre of the city of Medan, has a difficult takeoff path and has a longer runway. Construction began on 29 June 2006 , shortly before the first anniversary of the crash of Mandala Airlines Flight 091. All 1,365 hectares land acquisitions have been done between 1995 to 1997 and has a certificate with Explotation Right (Hak Pengelolaaan) Number-1 on November 29, 1999 and a 100 percent belongs to PT Angkasa Pura II. Between end of 1999 and 2006 some illegal people used a part of the land as agriculture land and PT Angkasa Pura II has offered some money to them to move. It has been predicted all of the land will be cleared before end of 2012 when 'shadow operation' begins. It will have a 3,750 meter runway, 60-meter-wide runway, 33 aprons and will be equipped to accommodate wide-body aircraft, including the Airbus A380, and it will serve the city of Medan on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. The other problems are runway construction which has schedule to finish 18 months after the project started on January 2011, infrastructure building and power generator installment. The airport will cost at least 4.4 trillion Rupiah to build, or approximately US$473 million, using the August 2007 exchange rate
