State-owned Pelita Air Service plans to launch services next month connecting Jakarta to Yogyakarta, citing increased travel demand.

The airline says in a statement it will add a daily service connecting Jakarta’s Soekarno Hatta International Airport to Yogyakarta International Airport, starting 20 June.

Dendy Kurniawan, president director of Pelita Air Service, says the new service is to support increasing air travel demand.

He says Yogyakarta is a priority tourism destination, and this flight service is expected to support the revival of Indonesian tourism, as well as cater to students, academics and business travellers.

In addition to this launch, Pelita Air Service says it will increase the frequency of its Jakarta-Bali service to twice daily from daily.

Smart Aviation Asia Pacific reported last month the airline is launching its first scheduled service connecting Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport to Bali’s I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport using Airbus A320.

“In the future, Pelita Air Service will continue to open travel routes to other tourist destinations and businesses in Indonesia,” Kurniawan says.
