THE GOVERNMENT invites more airlines from ASEAN member countries to open direct flight routes to Indonesia. The Indonesian government has added direct flight routes from Vietnam to Indonesia. According to him, by opening direct flights between Hanoi to Jakarta, and previously there were Ho Chi Minh City to Jakarta and Ho Chi Minh City to Bali, South Korean tourists could be attracted to come to Indonesia.

Not long ago, the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Uno, said that a few moments ago I attended direct flights from Hanoi to Jakarta, before Ho Chi Minh City to Jakarta and Denpasar, I invited more direct flights to Indonesia.

“As the center of ASEAN, namely Jakarta and Bali, but also other destinations in the country, because this is very popular with several countries, there were discussions with Laos and Cambodia to increase direct flights to Indonesia,” he said.

Apart from that, Sandiaga also explained that tourist destinations that are very popular with foreign tourists from ASEAN are Bali and Yogyakarta. It is in great demand by tourists from several ASEAN countries. For example, tourists from Laos and Cambodia, so from there it is necessary to increase the number of direct flights to Indonesia. In fact, there is also interest from the United Arab Emirates and South Korea to increase the number of flights to Indonesia. [sources/photo special]
