However, the reduction will only be valid for different departures and with certain terms and conditions.

“Currently, we are making preparations and process in relation to ticket price adjustment,” Danang added. However, he elaborated that the tariff will not include baggage charges, passenger service charges, value added tax, and insurance fees. Also, the promotional tickets will only be valid 10 days before the scheduled departure.

The factors are: range; government tax, which is 10 per cent of the basic fare; insurance fees; passenger service tax; and the airport tax, which varies across different cities in Indonesia.
