Notohadinegoro airport in Jember regency, East Java, has started serving commercial flights.
Five international routes have been served; Kualanamu-Kuala Lumpur, Kualanamu-Penang, Kualanamu-Singapore, Kualanamu-Madinah, and Kualanamu-Bangkok.
Recent increase in plane ticket prices might significantly impact the national tourism industry that has only been brought back to life.
The two airports are planned to welcome international tourists to the province.
It has becoming normal in many countries, and it will take about six to eight months [for the aviation] to be normal in Indonesia."
This route from AirAsia was the fifth international route served at Ngurah Rai Airport since the opening of the international flight corridor and the only airline that flies regularly on the Kuala Lumpur route.
