Low- cost carrier Citilink Indonesia launched a new route on Thursday connecting Bandung, West Java, to holiday destination Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara.

'€œThis Bandung'€“Lombok route has huge potential and we are aiming to capture the business and travel markets,'€ Citilink corporate communications vice president Beni Butar Butar said in Bandung as quoted by Antara news agency.

Beni said the carrier would offer two daily flights with an Airbus A320-200 plane that had the capacity to carry 180 passengers.

'€œBandung is a strategic hub for commercial airlines at the moment and we are optimistic our passenger load factor on this route will reach 80 percent,'€ he added.

Besides Lombok, Citilink connects Husein Sastranegara Airport with Kuala Namu International Airport in North Sumatra and Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali.

He also said the new flight service provided easier and comfortable access for Bandung residents who wished to visit Lombok since they no longer needed to fly from Jakarta. (nfo)(+++)
