The new West Java Kertajati International Airport to open up greater travel opportunities

Published on : Thursday, February 21, 2019

Tourism Malaysia is taking measures to draw more Indonesian tourists and perk up yield in terms of leisure and MICE travelers heading to Malaysia by organizing a series of Malaysia-Indonesia Tourism Gathering 2019 sessions in sundry Indonesian secondary cities throughout the year.


Today, the first in the series starts at Santika Hotel, Tasikmalaya, where around 20 agents and product owners from Malaysia will meet face-to-face with 60 of their Indonesian counterparts through networking and business-to-business sessions.


To quote the Director of Tourism Malaysia Jakarta, Roslan Othman, “Tasikmalaya was chosen because we see the great potential for tourism development here, especially when it comes to business travellers. Tasikmalaya is not far from Bandung which is currently the entry and exit points for tourists from Indonesia to Malaysia and vice versa.”


Tourism Malaysia hopes that the introduction of the West Java International Airport (BIJB) in Kertajati, Majalengka – around three hours away from Tasikmalaysia – will provide more travel opportunities between Indonesia and Malaysia and vice versa.


To quote Roslan, “Moreover, there are plans for several airlines to establish flight routes from BIJB to Malaysia which will be great for tourism growth between the two destinations.”


Indonesia arrivals to Malaysia experienced an increase of 17.2% with 3,277,689 tourists making an entry into Malaysia for the period of January to December 2018. Contributing to the major growth were efforts made by the travel agents, distributors and airlines offering travelers with strategic promotions via travel packages and competitive airfares.
