Citilink airlines are expanding inter-island connectivity in Indonesia by opening three new domestic routes.
The three new domestic routes are from Jakarta (Cengkareng) to Kendari, Jakarta (Cengkareng) to Kupang, and Denpasar to Labuan Bajo starting last Thursday, February 11, 2021.
“The opening of these three new routes is a form of Citilink’s commitment to providing access to air transportation that connects between islands in Indonesia and is part of Citilink’s commitment to expanding the flight network in Eastern Indonesia,” said Citilink’s Managing Director, Juliandra in his official statement, Saturday, February 13, 2021.
The route to Kupang and Kendari, which are the capital and the center of the provincial economy, is expected to create opportunities for economic activities to be more active and grow rapidly in this new adaptation period.
Meanwhile, the Denpasar-Labuan Bajo route was opened as a form of Citilink’s support for the development of super-priority tourist destinations that have been established by the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf).
“We are optimistic that this route will be of great interest to the public, both for business people and for travel, considering that this flight is also connected ( connecting flight ) with flights to other big cities which are economic centers in Indonesia such as Surabaya, Medan, and Batam,” added Juliandra.
Citilink continues to implement strict health protocols in all of its flight operations, from pre-, in-, to post-flight, regarding the health protocol stipulated by the government.
This is to ensure all flights run optimally while prioritizing health and safety for all customers.
