Singapore Airlines has announced that they will boost services into Indonesia with a new service to Surabaya and increased services into Jakarta and Bali from July this year.
The new daily Singapore to Surabaya service will operate on a 285 seat Airbus A330 and will see the combined SilkAir Singapore Airlines capacity increase on the service to 48 percent.
Also on 26 July, SIA will introduce a ninth daily service to Jakarta, and will simultaneously add its fourth daily service to Denpasar (Bali).
SIA currently operates 56 weekly Jakarta flights – more than to any other destination in its network – and 21 weekly Denpasar flights. SilkAir currently operates 60 weekly fights to nine Indonesian destinations, and in July and August will launch services to two more points, namely Semarang and Makassar.
“The Indonesian economy is growing and this has increased demand for both business and leisure travel,” said Ms Lee Wen Fen, SIA’s Acting Senior Vice President Marketing Planning.
“Indonesia is an especially important market for the SIA Group, as demonstrated by SIA’s new services to Surabaya, our additional flights to Bali and Jakarta, and SilkAir’s new services to Semarang and Makassar. These new flights will provide even more options to our customers for travel to and from Indonesia, as well as for travel beyond Singapore to the many other destinations in our global network.”
