Indonesia AirAsia starts double-daily Jakarta – Semarang service
Indonesia AirAsia on 9 March introduced twice-daily domestic flights between Jakarta (CGK) and Semarang (SRG), the capital of Central Java province, located on the north coast of the island of Java. Competition on the short (430 kilometre) flight will be provided by Batavia (daily flights), Garuda Indonesia (nine daily flights), Lion Air (eight daily flights) and Sriwijaya Air (double daily flights). AirAsia already serves Semarang with daily flights from its base in Kuala Lumpur. This summer the AirAsia group of airlines will be operating around 30 daily departures from Jakarta, a similar number to what it was operating three years ago. However, the number of destinations served non-stop from the Indonesian capital has fallen during that period from 17 to just 10.
