Low-cost airline Wings Air inaugurated on Friday the operation of four new routes, connecting Bandung in West Java with Bangka Belitung Islands, Bengkulu and Jambi.
The flights will depart from Husein Sastranegara International Airport.
According to Wings Air corporate communications official Danang Mandala Prihantoro, the new routes to Bangka Belitung Islands will land in Pangkalpinang and Tanjung Pandan
The airline will also add flights connecting Bandung and Semarang, Central Java.
“The flights from Bandung to Tanjung Pandan, Bengkulu and Jambi will operate four times a week in the first phase. As demand grows, we will expand our schedule,” Danang said in a written statement received by The Jakarta Post on Saturday.
The new routes are expected to better serve business travelers, giving them the chance to continue their trips through connecting flights from the aforementioned routes, as well as the airline’s existing routes. (dpk/mut)
