National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia and state-owned Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) have come up with a tourism program recently called Ayo Liburan (Let’s Take a Vacation). This program can help in meeting the Indonesian tourism ministry’s target of 20 million overseas tourists and 275 local tourists by 2019.
To quote Indonesian Tourism Minister Arief Yahya, “Ayo Liburan program is a real, innovative and creative act in creating an interesting travel package that attracts travelers to participate. As a national flag carrier, Garuda Indonesia has to keep on innovating, expanding their network as well as acting as a bridge that connects the archipelago with people from all over the world; the airline itself is already on track with the world’s standard. We have to calibrate and analyze on what we’ve done to improve Indonesian tourism.”
Under this travel program, participants can travel to five destinations in Indonesia, which are Belitung, Labuan Bajo, Malang, Padang and Banyuwangi throughout the months of August until November this year.
As part of the program, apart from flight tickets, travelers can also make an arrangement for hotels, local tour packages, entrance fee to some of the tourist attractions, transportation and even culinary tour packages.
“This program is BNI’s support for the development of Indonesian tourism by expanding access to the nation’s leading destinations through affordable ticket prices,” said BNI president director Achmad Baiquni.
