The reduced ticket prices, initiated by the airline, apply to flights to and from Australia, Vietnam, South Korea, and Japan.

In anticipation of travel demands during the Hari Raya holiday in April, Tangerang-based low-cost airline AirAsia Indonesia announced that it will offer various promotions for flights to and from overseas. Potential travellers can enjoy discounted prices by booking their flight tickets on the airline’s mobile application AirAsia MOVE or the airline’s official company website. The promotions are made available for flight tickets purchased between the 18th of March and the 24th of March 2024. Moreover, the discounted prices apply to flights scheduled between the 15th of April and the 30th of November 2024.

In a statement to the press, Veranita Yosephine, the chief executive officer of the airline, said that AirAsia Indonesia was eyeing an increase in the number of passengers on international flights. This also aligns with the government’s initiatives to drum up more foreign tourists in Indonesia. The Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy has previously announced that it was eyeing at least 14.3 million foreign visitors in Indonesia for the year 2024.

“The reduced ticket prices are also one of our attempts to entice tourists to visit other countries or return to their home country [Indonesia],” Yosephine added.

Billed as a “Fly Thru” promo, the airline’s latest initiative caters to travellers flying overseas from airports in Jakarta, Bali, Medan, and Surabaya. The international routes that are subjected to reduced ticket prices encompass flights to and from Australia (Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast), Vietnam (Ho Chi Min, Da Nang, Hanoi), South Korea (Busan, Seoul), and Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Hokkaido).

According to a report made by Statistics Indonesia (BPS), at least 11.68 million foreign tourists have visited Indonesia throughout the year 2023, which also hints at a 98.30 percent increase in foreign visits from the previous year.

While in 2023 alone, Indonesia AirAsia has accommodated up to 4.1 million passengers for all international routes available,” Yosephine pointed out.
