SIA To Launch Surabaya Services And Increase Bali and Jakarta Frequency

07 May 2013 - Singapore Airlines will significantly boost Indonesia services from July, with the introduction of daily flights to Surabaya, and an increase in frequency to the capital Jakarta and the resort island of Bali.

 

From 26 July, SIA will take over one of two daily Surabaya flights currently operated by regional subsidiary SilkAir. Surabaya is the second-largest city in Indonesia and the capital of East Java.

 

The Airline will operate 285-seat Airbus A330s for the daily Surabaya flights, increasing combined SIA and SilkAir capacity on the route by 48 per cent.

 

Also on 26 July, SIA will introduce a ninth daily service to Jakarta, and will simultaneously add its fourth daily service to Denpasar (Bali). Flight schedules can be found in the attached Annex.

 

SIA currently operates 56 weekly Jakarta flights – more than to any other destination in its network - and 21 weekly Denpasar flights. SilkAir currently operates 60 weekly fights to nine Indonesian destinations, and in July and August will launch services to two more points, namely Semarang and Makassar.

 

“The Indonesian economy is growing and this has increased demand for both business and leisure travel,” said Ms Lee Wen Fen, SIA’s Acting Senior Vice President Marketing Planning.

 

“Indonesia is an especially important market for the SIA Group, as demonstrated by SIA’s new services to Surabaya, our additional flights to Bali and Jakarta, and SilkAir’s new services to Semarang and Makassar. These new flights will provide even more options to our customers for travel to and from Indonesia, as well as for travel beyond Singapore to the many other destinations in our global network.”
