Citilink (ist) -Jakarta- Citilink Indonesia opens Jakarta-Silangit flight to increase tourist, trade, and investment in Lake Toba, North Sumatra.

The opening of Silangit Airport as the entrance gate of international tourists is expected to increase tourist, trade and investment visit in Lake Toba Region, said Tourism Minister Arief Yahya who followed the inaugural flight in Jakarta on Saturday (28/10/2017)

Arief Yahya said Silangit Airport has shown good infrastructure development that encourages progressive growth or in other words "supply creates demand", thus accelerating the internationalization of Lake Toba region.

"With the inauguration of Silangit Airport as an International Airport will accelerate the process of achieving government targets and make North Sumatra as one of the main actors to meet the target," he said.

Citilink Indonesia also expects that the new route of Halim Perdanakusuma-Silangit can also support the growth of tourism sector in North Tapanuli so as to participate in realizing Lake Toba as one of the main tourist locations of Indonesia besides Bali, "Opening the direct flight route to Silangit is the right momentum with three fundamental considerations: North Maluku's high economic growth of 5.09 percent (BPS), accelerating the connectivity of the archipelago as well as a form of airline support for government programs, "said Citilink Indonesia President Director Juliandra Nurtjahjo.

The direct flight of Jakarta route via Halim Perdanakusuma airport - Silangit is using the Airbus A320 Neo with a 180 passenger PK-GTF hull arriving from Toulouse, France on Thursday (26/10).

The Jakarta-Silangit flight route is the sixth route to open this year after previously opening routes to Jayapura, Dili, Kendari, Gorontalo and Ambon.

In the near future Citilink Indonesia will also open flights connecting the three major islands in Indonesia, namely Java, Sumatra, and Kalimantan with Semarang-Palembang and Semarang-Banjarmasin routes.
