Low-cost carrier AirAsia is to reopen four of its routes from Bali starting Sept. 1, allowing passengers to travel from the famous island destination to Labuan Bajo in East Nusa Tenggara, Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara, as well as Yogyakarta and Surakarta in Central Java.

According to a statement, the move is part of the airline's effort to gradually reopen its popular routes as it enters its third month since resuming operations amid the pandemic.

“We continue to work hard to gradually normalize the operations of our customers' favorite routes, starting with our Bali hub," AirAsia Indonesia president director Veranita Yosephine Sinaga said in the statement.

Following the reopening plans, the carrier is currently offering a 20 percent discount for flights scheduled between Sept. 1 and Dec. 6, which already include 15 kilograms of checked baggage.

It has also expanded its rapid test stations to 33 locations, allowing its customers to make use of the service, available for Rp 95,500 (US$6.46), by showing their booking code and identity card. 

Just yesterday, Citilink also announced the reopening of some domestic routes, including Jakarta-Yogyakarta, Jakarta-Surakarta, Jakarta-Labuan Bajo, Medan-Nias and Jakarta-Bali. (gis/kes)
