TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno said that a number of foreign airlines have resumed direct flights to tourism destinations in Indonesia other than Bali. For example, he mentioned Malaysia Airlines' direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Pekanbaru.

The minister said this was a good sign ahead of the G20 Summit. "We appreciate and thank all those who have facilitated this," Sandiaga said on Monday, September 19.

In addition to Malaysia Airlines, Sandiaga also mentioned Jeju Air's direct flight to Manado, North Sulawesi. This is a new route that was agreed by Jeju Air and the Governor of North Sulawesi, Olly Dondokambey. The agreement was signed on Friday last week, September 16th.

Sandiaga said his ministry is also coordinating with Garuda Indonesia. The flag carrier will resume direct flights between Bali and Japan's Narita (Chiba) and Kansai (Osaka) airport every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, starting November 22.

"Hopefully the opening of direct flights will not only encourage Indonesians to go abroad but also attract visits to Indonesia," the minister said.
