Grab has signed a transportation sector partnership with Primer Koperasi Angkatan Udara (PRIMKOPAU). The partnership looks to facilitate passengers who arrive in Husein Sastranegara International Airport, Bandung.
This allows them to continue their travel journey by visiting Grab’s official pickup point and directly book transport services through GrabCar. Meanwhile, official GrabCar fleets in Husein Sastranegara International Airport can be easily identified with a distinctive PRIMKOPAU stickers on the rear window.
Colonel M. Iman Handoyo, Danlanud Husein Sastranegara said that through a strategic partnership with Grab, the organisation hopes to give more access to other transportation services for the customers and Bandung residents. This is part of its effort to give the best for the visitors of Husein Sastranegara International Airport.
“We will work harder to support the existing transportation system in the airport and hopefully can be a good example for the presence of online-based on-demand service in public areas in Indonesia. In addition, we also provide our driver partners with further knowledge about safety riding, in parallel with the values upheld by PRIMKOPAU and Grab,” he added.
Ridzki Kramadibrata, managing director Grab Indonesia explained that the move was also in line with the vision of Bandung city government to transform Bandung into a smart city. This also sees easy access to various transport services which can be integrated and enjoyed by the residents.
“We see that Grab’s official presence with PRIMKOPAU in Husein Sastranegara International Airport is able to support that vision by providing the customers with the easy access to enjoy GrabCar service from the airport to their destination in Bandung and surrounding areas,” Kramadibrata added.
According to Andika Nuryaman, executive general manager at Main Branch Office of Husein Sastranegara International Airport, PT Angkasa Pura II, in order to support this partnership, the main branch office of Husein Sastranegara Airport will provide a special facility for online taxi driver partners who are registered in PRIMKOPAU.
“Air travel can be very exhausting for passengers, especially when it’s a long-haul flight. Through Grab’s official availability in Husein Sastranegara Airport with PRIMKOPAU, we hope we can facilitate the airport visitors to get convenient, safe land transport services with fixed and affordable fares,” Nuryaman said.
