Kuala Namu International Airport, North Sumatra : Satu-satunya bandara kualifikasi 4-Star SkyTrax International Airport di Indonesia

Kuala Namu International Airport is the only Indonesian’s 4-star SkyTrax qualified international airport (with other 35 international airports in the world)

Diresmikan oleh Pak SBY tahun 2013 lalu, dalam jangka waktu 2 tahun di tahun 2015 Bandara KNIA Sumatra Utara berhasil meraih prestasi membanggakan ini. Dengan fasilitas lengkap dan pengaturan alur lalu lintas kendaraan serta penumpang yang fix serta railway train satu2ny, plus kebersihan bandara yg emg lumayanlah. Awal tahun depan ke bandara KNIA juga sudah bisa lewat jalan tol baik dari Medan maupun Deli Serdang, serta jalur KA double track dan jalur layang KA yg juga akan selesai akhir tahun depan untuk mempercepat perjalanan KA ke bandara.

Diharapkan tetap konsisten service dan qualitiny, sehingga dalam 1 dekade ke depan bisa dapet peringkat 5-star (saat ini hanya ada 36 bandara internasional dunia yang 4-star termasuk KNIA, dan hanya ada 8 bandara yang 5-star)

Challenge antara lain pengaturan taxi 2, bagian kedatangan (Arrival) yang masih relatif kalah jauh dibanding keberangkatan (Departure) terutama tempat penjemput menunggu, suasana sesak di bagian keberangkatan kalo peak time – untung ud bnyk self-checkin, fasilitas air minum di jalur internasional, dan area parkir yg pohon2ny masih pada kecil sehingga panas, dsb.
