Singapore Airlines is planning to boost its frequency and network in Indonesia. It hopes to initiate flights to new cities and enhance frequency to Bali, offering more options to fliers seeking tickets on the route.
Leisure vacationers seeking tickets on flights for travelling between Singapore and Indonesia will soon have added options as the Singapore’s national carrier Singapore Airlines (SIA) is increasing its operations to Bali and Jakarta in addition to introducing flights to Surabaya, the second-largest Indonesia city.
From 26 July 2013, Singapore Airline is going to take over one of two daily Surabaya service currently operated by its regional subsidiary SilkAir. The airline will offer tickets for its state of the art 285-seater Airbus A330s, ensuring seamless connectivity and comfortable journey to travellers planning to fly on the sector. Besides, the carrier will add fourth daily service to Denpasar (Bali) on the same day and ninth daily flight to capital city, Jakarta.
SIA currently offers tickets for 56 Jakarta and 21 Denpasar flights per week. While the airline’s subsidiary, SilkAir presently operates 60 weekly services to nine Indonesian destinations and is now planning to provide tickets on flights to two new regions namely Semarang and Makassar in July and August.
Bali and Singapore are among the two popular south-eastern destinations in Asia. It is expected that the move of SIA to boost frequency would do good to business travellers as well as holidaymakers who remain on constant lookout for tickets on flights operating on the route.
