INDUSTRY.co.id - Kupang- PT (Persero) Angkutan Sungai Danau dan Penyeberangan (ASDP) Indonesia Ferry is preparing a special ferry for tourists who will visit the leading tourist destinations of Labuan Bajo and Komodo National Park (KNP).

"In less than three months it will be realized the ferry boat procurement program which we will name the KMP Komodo with a special design that reflects the characteristics of East Nusa Tenggara," said President Director of PT ASDP Indonesia Ferry Ira Puspadewi to Antara in Kupang, Thursday (8/3/2018)

Ira explained the procurement of special ferry boat for tourists in Labuan Bajo, West Manggarai on Flores Island, because during this time tourists who want to enjoy the natural beauty of the island around Labuan Bajo to the TNK feel the cost is very expensive.

Tourists who want to enjoy the natural beauty around Labuan Bajo to KNP must pay expensive charter boats that have been provided by the community Labuan Bajo.

On that basis, Ira said, the government wants to be present in the community of Labuan Bajo by ferry so that even small people can enjoy the natural beauty around it with reasonable price.

"For the ticket price is still under discussion, because it still takes a little time to survey the price," he added.

Ira said the ferry capacity is expected to accommodate 200 passengers, using the Roll and Roll Off (RoRo) system.

As for the port to be used as a place to lean the ship for a while will continue to use the port in Labuan Bajo.

"There are three islands that will be the tourism location community around the island of Padar, Komodo and Rinca islands," he said.

With the ship, he continued, PT ASDP Indonesia Ferry wants to take part in increasing tourist visits to Labuan Bajo and Komodo National Park (KNP).

"For now, KMP Komodo is in service process, and it will certainly be sent directly to Labuan Bajo in the near future if it is ready for use," he said.

Meanwhile, SOE Minister Rini Soemarno during his two-day visit in NTT from 6-7 March 2018 said that President Joko Widodo really wants NTT to be the second tourism area after Bali.

"The desire of President Jokowi should be supported by the provision of adequate facilities, so the desire of PT ASDP to hold a ferry for tourists in Labuan Bajo, should be given appreciation," he said.
