The Minister of Transportation, Budi Karya Sumadi will also continue to monitor until tourists are handled and transported from the Gili Islands. "I continue to coordinate with the Ministry of Transportation Team in NTB to serve tourists in Lombok," said Minister of Transportation Budi Karya, through a press release received by Industry.co.id, Monday (08/06/2018).

From the air line, Garuda Indonesia has also prepared additional flights. "GA has replaced with a wider aircraft for 2 flights today, August 6 2018, and also extra 1 flight which is fully charged. The sales system remains the same, using online booking, "said Tourism Minister Arief Yahya answering many netizen questions.

Further additional flights will be coordinated with the Airport Head. "Thank you Garuda Indonesia Managing Director, Mr. Pahala Mansyuri. Please keep supplying the number of seats to continue to exist, to serve foreign tourists and tourists who are trapped in Lombok, "added Menpar Arief Yahya.
