Lion Air has announced a new direct route between the cities of Jambi and Batam.

'€œWe are going to open a new Jambi-Batam route considering the growing demand for direct flights between the two cities,'€ said Jambi-branch Lion Air manager, Mardanus, on Monday.

Batam is a transit route for Sumatra so Lion Air will accommodating passengers departing from Jambi to the city.

'€œWe plan to use the Boeing 737 Next Generation with a capacity of 189 economy seats,'€ said Mardanus.

Currently, Lion Air in Jambi has only five Jambi-Jakarta flights per day. (ebf)
