WINGS Air reopens scheduled passenger flights connecting intra-South Kalimantan from Banjarmasin to Batulicin, Tanah Bumbu Regency.

According to Corporate Communications Strategic of Wings Air, Danang Mandala Prihantoro said intra-South Kalimantan flights flying from Banjarmasin via Syamsudin Noor International Airport in Banjarbaru to Batulicin destination will be connected to Sultan Hasanuddin Makassar International Airport in Maros, South Sulawesi.

“The flight schedule is served every day to return (round trip) or seven times a week, where there is no time difference, namely Central Indonesia Time [WIT],” said Danang in his official press release.

Danang hopes that the re-operation of these flights can answer the market demand for air transportation services in the three cities or regions (Banjarmasin-Batulicin-Makassar), and further increase public interest in traveling by airplane.

“Wings Air has prepared a fleet of ATR 72-500 or ATR 72-600 propellers, with a seat capacity of 72 in economy class with a 2-2 layout. I emphasized that the flight was carried out in accordance with the health protocol guidelines and prioritized passenger safety and security factors,” he noted.

He explained that Wings Air maximizes various steps during the pandemic, such as arranging the process of entering and exiting passengers from the aircraft sequentially to minimize overcrowding. On ATR aircraft, go up and down from the rear door so as to minimize direct eye contact between passengers.

“Wings Air offers a one-way facility with prices starting at IDR266,700 from Banjarmasin to Batulicin, IDR186,700 from Batulicin to Banjarmasin and IDR469,400 for the Batulicin to Makassar route and IDR551,400 from Makassar to Batulicin,” Danang concluded. [photo special]
