Citilink expands in Balikpapan with two domestic routes
Citilink increased its presence in Balikpapan (BPN), located on the east coast of Indonesian Borneo, on 26 December. The airline now offers twice-daily services to Denpasar (DPS) and daily to Ujung Pandang (UPG). While there is no competition on the route to Denpasar, the capital of the province of Bali, as many as five airlines operate in the market from Balikpapan to Ujung Pandang on the Sulawesi Island: Lion Air (21 weekly frequencies), Indonesia AirAsia (14), Garuda Indonesia (11), Merpati Nusantara (7), Sriwijaya Air (7). Mixed narrow-body equipment will be operated on each route.
