The meeting was made possible through “the cooperation between AirAsia and the West Nusa Tenggara administration, which was established a long time ago”, said Veranita Yosephine Sinaga, AirAsia Indonesia’s president director, in a statement.

Veranita added that in October and November AirAsia made 187 flights to and from Lombok, with the occupancy rate reaching 70 percent in November. This followed the maximum capacity required by the government amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The number of AirAsia passengers visiting Lombok has nearly doubled in the past two months, and is expected to continue to increase in December, she said.

“We are confident that together we will rise again from the current situation by continuing to collaborate, making joint promotional efforts for the tourism products and services, not only hotels but other supporting products such as tourism activities and transportation to encourage and accelerate the economic recovery of the people,” she said.
