Japan’s flag carrier Japan Airlines is opening three charter flights from Narita, Japan, to Denpasar on June 17, 20 and 23 using a Boeing 767-30.

“Up to this day, 587 passengers from Japan have reached Indonesia,” the Tourism Ministry's deputy for overseas promotion, I Gde Pitana, said on Saturday.

Japan Airlines used to operate direct flights from Indonesia to Japan, catering to some 400 passengers daily. The route was closed on September 30, 2010, due to internal issues in the company.

Japan is one of the Tourism Ministry’s main target markets for overseas tourists. This year alone, the Ministry is targeting to attract 762,000 Japanese visitors.

Apart from Japan Airlines, Garuda Indonesia also serves direct flights from Narita and Haneda to Jakarta and Denpasar. AirAsia operates the Narita-Denpasar and Mumbai-Denpasar routes, while Sriwijaya Air is being chartered by Dong Fang Travel in China to travel from Guangzhou to Tarakan, North Kalimantan, on July 10.
