Lombok Airport opens Lombok-Makassar flight route and begins operations on March 27, 2024

In order to promote the development of the economic and tourism sectors, PT Angkasa Pura I Airport, Lombok opens direct flight routes to Makassar, South Sulawesi and vice versa from Wednesday, March 27, 2024.

PT Angkasa Pura I Lombok Airport General Manager Minggus ET Gandeguai said the flight route is expected to increase the number of tourists, which in turn will provide a boost to the local economy and tourism sector in both Lombok and Makassar.

“Hopefully this can be an alternative and provide convenience for people who want to visit family or friends, as well as business people who need efficient travel,” Minggus said on Monday, March 18, 2024.

This route is served by Lion Air with a flight frequency of three times a week, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Lion Air's schedule number JT 840 will depart Lombok at 2:45 p.m. WITA and is expected to arrive in Makassar at 3:55 p.m. WITA.

Meanwhile, Lion Air flight number JT 841 will depart from Makassar at 12:35 WITA and land in Lombok at 1:50 WITA.

“This route will use a fleet of Boeing 737-900ER aircraft with a capacity of 215 seats and 7 kilograms of free carry-on baggage and 20 kilograms of checked baggage,” Minggus explained.

Lombok is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Indonesia and every year, Minggus said, this is of course a great opportunity for business development in the aviation industry, especially since there will be many international celebrations in this country.

Next June will see the MXGP 2024, with Lombok and Sumbawa competing as the venue for this big event.

The 16th MotoGP Series 2024 will take place from September 27th to 29th, 2024 at the Mandalika Circuit in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara.

“We stand ready to welcome and fully support domestic and international airlines wishing to open routes to and from Lombok,” he said.
