Jakarta. Batik Air, Lion Air Group's full-service airline, is set to start flying from Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport to Silangit International Airport in North Sumatra in December.
Indonesia's Transportation Ministry has already agreed to the airline's proposal to offer a flight to the newly opened Silangit Airport, which was built specifically to attract more visitors to the nearby Lake Toba, Batik Air said in a statement on Tuesday (14/11).
Return flights on the route will be available seven days a week, according to the statement.
Batik Air will use an Airbus 320 with 12 business class seats and 144 economy seats to serve the route.
The airline so far offers flights to 38 local and international destinations, serving on average 280 flights every day.
