Within the framework of Chinese New Year in February 2013, a number of national airline companies such as Lion Air, Sriwijaya Airlines and Garuda Indonesia have undertake special promotions."

Statistics kept by the government showed an increase month-on-month in arrivals fro China and Hong Kong of 73.1% and 84.3%, respectively.
