INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Lion Air Group targets Myanmar for the development of international routes in the region of Southeast Asia.

Lion Air Group President Director Edward Sirait in Jakart, Monday (09/24/2018) said that currently his party was discussing the route intensely, including investment and route network.

"Myanmar is what we are talking about intensely, how many routes they are, how they are investing, if regulation is adaptive, but we must see where to fly," he said.

In addition, he continued, what is being studied is the market potential.

"The country's 'service agreement' is how we should learn. If it's only the domestic market, there is nothing bigger than Indonesia," he said.

Edward added besides that, his side would also develop routes in India, Bangladesh and Cambodia.

"We also think about the region, how is connectivity to Indonesia," he said.

These routes add to the international route network which has also been extended to Australia.

"Australia is certain, only add to the existing ones, for example Melbourne, Malindo and Batik already exist. Brisbane added Batik and Perth as well. We must see its market growth," he said.

Edward said that there will still be 24 planes coming by 2019, both from Boeing and Airbus.

One of its utilities, he continued, is for international routes because currently revenues from international routes still contribute in the range of five percent of the total group revenue.

"International passengers per day are not up to 1,000 people," he said. (Ant)
