TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Transportation Ministry will boost construction of transportation infrastructure to support three main tourism destinations set by government including Yogyakarta, Lake Toba in North Sumatra, and Mandalika in West Nusa Tenggara.

"Those areas hold great potential and we are all out to build the three areas,” Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said on Saturday (30/9).

An airport in Kulonprogo, he continued, is targeted to operate in 2019 to support tourism in Yogyakarta, Solo, and Semarang. With the airport, Yogyakarta is expected to be connected to international flights and we can further promote tourism. "We expect Yogyakarta to be another Bali," he expressed.

To support Lake Toba, Budi revealed that International Silangit Airport will be officiated on 28 Oktober. "The first flight from Singapore to Silangit will be run."

In Mandalika, Transportation Ministry will develop air transportation to support tourism in West Nusa Tenggara as one of the main destinations. The strategy is, he went on, by building Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) in Lombok to attract middle class tourists to visit Mandalika.
