CULTURAL INTELLIGENCE AND ADAPTABLE SYSTEM BRINGS OUT THE HERITAGE OF THE REGION
As the next frontier in Asia, Yogyakarta fulfill its role as one of top ten second-tier cities of Indonesia with growing middle-affluent class (MAC) but with strong emphasis on being an inspirational place for competitive output then merely as a production center of technological city. This is align with local wisdom and branding aspiration to become the household name for creative economy in the region.
While the thesis of aerotropolis calls for creating dual roles of airline routers and global-local interfaces to make hub airports and their environs as business magnets and urban economic catalysts as they attract, sustain, and grow aviation-dependent firms, the important question is how Yogyakarta as the cultural capital of Indonesia can preserve its integrity and branding while moderating how the global meets the local in people and product flows.
To bridge between today and the future, the New Yogyakarta International Airport (NYIA) will offer both philosophical and practical medium in its positioning as one of key aerotropolises in Indonesia with cultural intelligence and adaptable system as its core principles. Advancing global lenses with strong local senses, NYIA is then uniquely positioned as the business and leisure of cultural heritage tourism hub of its class within 20 to 30 minute travel time in any mode of transportations. This will also strengthen the synergy between Metropolis Yogyakarta and Aerotropolis Kulon Progo to serve truthfully for the benefit of its people. Together it forms a new face of Yogyakarta as a destination and as a trendsetter.
