(3/18/2018) reports that Indonesia’s aviation industry – both in terms of passenger loads and cargo, grew in 2017 as compared to 2016. In 2017, the number of air passengers carried in Indonesia exceeded 100 million.

Experts contend that these numbers and the high rate of growth are reflective of not only the Indonesian economy as a whole, but the nation’s tourism industry.

“The smooth travel movements of the people and goods are indicators of the success of national development. The increase of traffic in the air transportation sector, demonstrates that the passenger and goods movements are growing smoothly. This has made a positive contribution to the growth of the national economy that includes tourism and the increasing number of foreign tourists coming to Indonesia,” said the Director General of Civil Aviation, Agus Santoso, in a statement to the press on Friday, March 16, 2018.

Agus said that goods and passengers are now able to travel quickly to almost every corner of the Indonesian archipelago utilising the increasing number of new airports being opened in once remote regions by the Government.

Data from the Department of Civil Aviation records 109,385,107 passengers were served by Indonesian airlines in 2017, an increase of 9.6% compared to the totals of 2016 when 99,762,611 passengers flew.

From these totals, domestic air passengers totaled 96,890,664 – an increase of 8.4% over 2016. International passengers flying on Indonesian carriers in 2017 reached 10,377,246.

In terms of market share, Lion Air dominated the marketplace carrying 34% of all domestic passengers followed by Garuda Indonesia that carried 20% of domestic air travelers.

Garuda dominated market share among Indonesian airlines carrying international passengers boarding 4,833,194 passengers – a market share of 39% followed by Indonesia AirAsia with 3.273.758 passengers – a 26% market share.

Domestic air cargo uplifted in 2017 totaled 729,194 tons, increasing 1.8% in comparison to 2016.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation recorded 19,061,737 passengers carried by foreign airlines and 384,936 tons of cargo moving on foreign carriers.
