Pasar LCC Meningkat, Bandara Internasional Narita Siap ‘Upgrade’ Kapasitas Terminal 3

first_imgNarita International Airport Terminal 3. Sumber Wikipedia Semakin banyaknya maskapai yang menyediakan layanan Low Cost Carriers (LCC) membuat terminal khusus maskapai berbiaya rendah di Bandara Internasional Narita perlu diperluas dalam jangka waktu empat tahun mendatang. Tujuannya, agar mengurangi penumpukkan penumpang yang terjadi di bandara yang terletak di Prefektur Chiba, Jepang ini.Baca Juga: Lima Maskapai Ini Dianggap Ramah Bagi Penyandang DisabilitasDiketahui, Terminal 3 yang diperuntukkan khusus maskapai berbiaya rendah ini dibuka pada tahun 2015 silam, dan setiap tahunnya hampir selalu mengalami peningkatan pengguna. Dikutip dari laman, aliran pengguna meningkat kurang lebih sekitar 10 persen setiap tahunnya. Itu semua tidak lepas dari peran operator LCC yang terus memperkenalkan layanan baru dan meningkatkan jumlah penerbangannya. Ada keunikan lain dari bandara ini. Selain Terminal 3 yang dikhususkan untuk maskapai berbiaya rendah, Terminal 1 dan 2 pun ditujukan bagi kelompok maskapai tertentu, seperti Terminal 1 khusus untuk anggota SkyTeam dan Star Alliance, sedangkan Terminal 2 khusus untuk anggota aliansi maskapai Oneworld. Saking banyaknya layanan yang ‘singgah’ di bandara yang memiliki landas pacu sejajar ini, sampai-sampai Bandara Internasional Narita mendapat gelar sebagai bandara internasional tersibuk di Jepang.Menurut laman sumber, Terminal 3 Bandara Internasional Narita digunakan oleh lebih dari 7,6 juta orang pada tahun fiskal terakhir yang berakhir pada bulan Maret 2018 kemarin. Dengan adanya peningkatan yang stabil pada sektor penumpang, maka hal tersebut maka berimbas pada kepadatan penumpang ketika check-in dan antrean pada pos pemeriksaan keamanan.Baca Juga: WheelTug, Dukung Pergerakan Pesawat Lebih Cepat di Area TerminalMenanggapi hal tersebut, Narita International Airport Corporation selaku operator bandara tersebut melakukan inisiasi untuk meningkatkan kapasitas terminal menjadi 15 juta penumpang. Selain dapat menampung lebih banyak pelancong, peningkatan kapasitas tersebut pun diharapkan dapat menarik lebih banyak nama LCC untuk ‘menyandarkan’ pesawatnya di Narita.CEO dari Narita International Airport Corporation, Makoto Natsume mengatakan bahwa akan merelokasi bangunan kargo di sisi selatan terminal LCC untuk membebaskan ruang seluas 10.000 meter persegi untuk perluasan. “LCC telah berkembang dan permintaan penerbangan telah melampaui ekspektasi. Kami akan berhati-hati dalam menyediakan fasilitas penunjang bagi para penumpang,” tutur Makoto.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedLow Cost Carrier Terminal Akan Hadir di Terminal 1 dan 2 Bandara Soetta11/08/2018In “Bandara”Mengenal Terminal LCC, Apa Bedanya dengan Terminal Full Service?27/08/2020In “Analisa Angkutan”Terminal 2F Bandara Soekarno-Hatta Kini Khusus untuk Penerbangan Berbiaya Murah02/05/2019In “Bandara”last_img read more

Browns Interim Head Coach Gregg Williams Chats with the Media the Day After the Loss to the Texans

first_img Matt Loede Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events. He has been a part of the Cleveland Indians coverage since the opening of Jacobs/Progressive Field in 1994, and spent two and a half years covering the team for 92.3 The Fan, and covers them daily for Associated Press Radio. You can follow Matt on Twitter HERE. The Browns dropped a tough game on Sunday against the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium, and today was the first time in a few weeks that interim head coach Gregg Williams had to face the media on a Monday after a setback.Here’s some takeaways from and answers to the media’s questions from today’s press conference in Berea. On Sunday’s Setback in Houston: “The game could have been closer, and the reason the game was not as close is that on the road you can’t be minus-four [in turnover differential]. You can’t do that. On the road minus-four and allowing a defensive score even diminishes your chances, whether it is minus-one or minus-two on the road and you allow a score on the offensive side of the ball when you are out there. Defensively, we have to take it away. We had the ball on the ground a couple of times. We have been well on taking it away. We have to score on defense, too. When they score, we score. That is how you play the complementary game. “Affect the field position. Defensively, one of the things that we have to do is better on third down and forcing them. Anytime that you force a team to 16, 17 or 18 [third downs] – we have had those weeks this year when you are 16-plus third and fourth downs – that is really good on first and second down, but then you have to get off [the field[]. It was more us than them. We have to execute our way. It was more us than them on a couple of those situations, especially when it gets down into the short-yardage situations. Give them credit. I will tell you, our guys credit them. We still made them kick field goals, but we could have been off the field on third down before they were in field goal range and forced a few more punts that way and give our offense an opportunity there to do better. Second half, just like we have you said, when we took a look at the film and everything, they came out grinding. “I thought (QB) Baker (Mayfield) did a very good job all day long in the leadership aspect of how we are going to do things on offense. I thought the leadership aspect on defense, too, and on special teams, the guys never flinched. We just need to do a better job in the point-producing areas of what the takeaways mean and how they do that on diminishing the return on winning games on the road.” Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 Related TopicsBrownsGregg Williamslast_img read more
