Indonesia to get 35 new air routes

Permission and money to open up remote parts of the country

As many as 35 new air routes will open up remote parts of Indonesia imminently as the government gives permission to three domestic carriers to serve “pioneer routes”. Merpati Airlines, Nusantara Buana Air and Susi Air have also been offered large subsidies to do so.
Merpati has secured 10 of the pioneer routes in Sabu, East Nusa Tenggara and West Papua, the Jakarta Post writes. Nusantara Buana Air has 12 routes, in Aceh, North Sumatra and Bengkulu. Susi Air has 13 routes in Aceh, West Kalimantan and East Kalimantan. And many more are on the cards. At least 132 pioneer air routes will be put out to tender in 2012.
