Low-cost carrier Lion Air is set to fly a new route connecting Yogyakarta International Airport in Kulon Progo regency, Yogyakarta, to Supadio International Airport in Kubu Raya regency, West Kalimantan.
According to a statement on Tuesday, the airline will be the first and only carrier to link the two regions.
Starting from Sept. 25, the daily service will use Boeing 737-800NG, which has 189 economy class seats.
Flight JT-969 will depart Yogyakarta at 11:40 a.m. local time and land at Supadio airport at 1:20 p.m., while flight JT-968 will leave Supadio airport at 2 p.m. and arrive in Yogyakarta at 3:40 p.m.
“If passengers plan to bring check-in luggage, they can purchase baggage vouchers from travel agents, the Lion Air website and Lion Air Group ticketing offices,” Lion Air corporate communication strategic manager Danang Mandala Prihantoro said, adding that vouchers were sold at more affordable prices if bought at least six hours before departure.
Each Lion Air traveler is allowed to take one cabin bag weighing a maximum of 7 kilograms and one personal item, such as purse, laptop, camera, baby equipment and reading material. (wir/kes)
