AIRASIA Indonesia recorded an increase in ticket reservations by more than 400% and total seat sales of more than 19,000 seats within one month after resuming scheduled flights.

According to Director of AirAsia Indonesia Veranita Yosephine Sinaga explained, the trend of demand showed a significant gradual increase seen from an increase in ticket search activity on the official site by 80% since the beginning of the operation again. Meanwhile, Jakarta-Bali and Surabaya-Kuala Lumpur are the most desirable domestic and international routes.

“This growth is influenced by a variety of factors, one of which is the government’s efforts to educate about travel procedures during the adaptation of new habits that are responded well by the community,” Veranita said in an official broadcast.

Veranita said that she had anticipated it by gradually increasing flight frequency on a number of routes served and expanding the reach of destinations. The airline has been present in six domestic destinations, namely Jakarta, Medan, Bali, Surabaya, Yogyakarta and Lombok, as well as Kuala Lumpur and Penang for international destinations.

He also said, the current travel trends also showed an increased interest in traveling not only for important travel periods immediately, but also for the next few months. This is in line with the economic recovery plan by several local governments to reopen a number of tourist objects while maintaining the health protocol.

Complementing this trend, AirAsia offers the flexibility of changing unlimited flight dates so that passengers can change their flight schedules as they wish without being charged a change fee and the ease of receiving a credit account within a day. AirAsia will also soon launch various other attractive products and promos to support the comfort of travel and the safety of all AirAsia passengers in the current situation.

Customers can find all available routes and flight schedules at more affordable prices through the site or the AirAsia mobile app. Prices shown include free luggage for domestic flights up to 15 kg.

Since hibernation until now, AirAsia Indonesia has also served 15 charter flights which have successfully assisted in repatriation missions, labor mobilization, and logistics and assistance delivery to a number of cities in Indonesia and countries. This success is inseparable from the full support of the Government of Indonesia and a number of embassies in the relevant countries.
