The existing three sectors are currently served by AirAsia Malaysia.
Iwan Kamaruddin, commercial director of Indonesia AirAsia, expects the additional flights to yield a growth of 30 per cent in international arrivals to Indonesia.
He elaborated: “These three routes operated by Malaysia AirAsia have recorded a significant growth of demand and the seat load factor has reached an average of 90 per cent. We hope that the additional frequencies will bring more international arrivals to Indonesia from our hub in Kuala Lumpur.”
