Low-cost carrier Lion Air announced on Monday the reopening of three domestic routes from Husein Sastranegara International Airport in Bandung, West Java.
According to a statement, the Bandung-Palembang, Bandung-Pekanbaru and Bandung-Banjarmasin routes will be available six times a day using Boeing 737-800NG aircraft that can accommodate 189 economy class passengers and offers free inflight entertainment through WiFi connection.
Tempo.co reported that the services were previously operated from Kertajati International Airport in West Java.
The move marks the reopening of Lion Air's Bandung hub. It already reopened its other hubs in Medan in North Sumatra, Bali, Balikpapan in East Kalimantan and Makassar in South Sulawesi.
Just a few days prior, the carrier also announced the opening of a new route connecting Berau regency to Balikpapan in East Kalimantan. The flight will operate once daily with a Boeing 737-800NG offering 189 economy class seats. (wir/kes)
