(7/6/2012)

Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism and the Creative Economy, Mari Elka Pangestu, sees direct flights as critical to increasing international tourist flows to Indonesia.

As reported by Bisnis.com, the Minister points to steps underway since March 2012 to increase direct flight frequencies from Japan to Bali. Pangestu cites the opening of additional flights from Japan as resulting in positive growth in tourist numbers.

According to Pangestu, tourist visitors to Bali from Japan increased 12.01% in May 2012, when compared to the same month one year before.

“This development is probably tied to opening flights by Garuda Indonesia between Haneda and Denpasar since April 27, 2012 and the recovery of the Japanese economy from the effects of the tsunami and nuclear power plant disaster,” Pangestu explained.

The Minister insists that direct flight are proven to be an important factor to increase tourism flows, especially when the flight frequency for the new Haneda-Denpasar flights are five times a week.

Analysis carried out by the Ministry has also confirmed that increasing flight frequencies from Malaysia to Jakarta by Garuda Indonesia and Malaysian Airline have resulted in a corresponding increases in visitors from those destinations. Similarly, additional flight frequencies by JetStar and Qantas have help grow visitors arrivals.

The Ministry is optimistic that a recovery in the number of Taiwanese visitors will be precipitated by the recent commencement of Taipei-Denpasar service by Garuda Indonesia.

Pangestu concluded her comments by pointing to the fact that the cumulative total of foreign tourist visitors to Indonesia for the period January – May 2012 has increased over the same period in 2011.
