The national airline of Singapore, Singapore Airlines (SIA) is all set to boost frequency and network in Indonesia. The airline will now increase frequency to popular island resort of Bali and Jakarta and initiate flights to Surabaya, offering seamless connectivity and added options to vacationers and business travellers seeking tickets on the popular route.
From 26 July 2013, Singapore Airline will add fourth daily service to Denpasar (Bali) and ninth daily flight to the capital city of Jakarta. In addition, the carrier is also going to take over one of two daily Surabaya service currently run by its regional subsidiary SilkAir. It is planning to deploy 285-seater Airbus A330s, ensuring comfortable journey to fliers booking tickets for flights operating on the route.
The airline presently offers tickets for 56 Jakarta and 21 Bali flights per week. While the airline’s subsidiary, SilkAir is operating 60 weekly services to nine Indonesian destinations and contemplating to provide tickets on flights to two new regions namely Semarang and Makassar from July and August.
Bali and Singapore are among the two renowned south-eastern destinations in Asia, luring legions of international travellers. It is expected that the initiative of SIA’s to enhance flights frequency and network would be extremely beneficial for both holidaymakers and business travellers who remain on constant quest for tickets to travel between these two Asian destinations.
