Japanese airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) is set to add one extra flight schedule to serve the Jakarta-Tokyo route.
Announced on Friday, the extra flight is slated to commence on Aug. 2 and will use a Dreamliner 787-8 aircraft departing from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Banten, to Haneda International Airport in Tokyo.
The additional flight aimed to accommodate the increased demand of Indonesian tourists to Japan.
“The decision to add another flight was made during an internal meeting as we saw an increased demand of Indonesian tourists who want to visit Japan,” said the airline’s Jakarta office sales administrator Bradley Pardede.
Bradley explained that the airline’s occupancy for the Jakarta-Tokyo flight was considered good, especially during holiday seasons.
“In March or April, the occupancy could reach over 90 percent as it is a sakura season, which is a high season,” he added.
