TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Batik Air announced a new direct flight route connecting Indonesia's North Sumatra and India via Kualanamu International Airport to the Chennai International Airport that will take its inaugural flight on August 11 this year.
The subsidiary of low-cost carrier Lion Air will operate this international flight with its Boeing 737-800NG fleet.
“This route is scheduled to operate daily with a seven days a week flight frequency,” said Danang Mandala Prihartoro, Batik Air's strategic corporate communications officer in a statement on June 9.
