Low-cost carrier AirAsia is to move its domestic flight operations from Husein Sastranegara International Airport in Bandung to Kertajati International Airport in Majalengka starting June 30.
Majalengka is a 2.5- to 3-hour drive from Bandung, West Java.
Meanwhile, AirAsia continues to offer international flights at Husein Sastranegara airport.
Following this decision, flights to and from Bali are to land or depart at Kertajati airport. Hence, passengers who made Bali-Bandung bookings from June 30 onwards are advised to check their emails for new flight itineraries and to reprint their revised boarding passes.
For those who are uncomfortable with having to change their travel plans, AirAsia announced in a statement that it is offering passengers a one-time chance until June 30 to change their flight date 30 calendar days in advance of the original scheduled flight date. There would be no additional cost but changing flights is subject to seat availability.
The carrier is also accepting requests for full refunds for the value of passengers' bookings at support.airasia.com.
