As previously informed, that one of the national airlines will open a route to Karimun Jawa in 2015. The airline belongs to one of the ministers under President Joko Widodo, namely Mrs. Susi (Minister of Fisheries). With this plane going to Karimun Jawa, it is hoped that it will make it easier for residents and tourists. The Susi Air aircraft used to carry out this flight is a small type aircraft or commonly called a pioneer. With this commercial aircraft, it is hoped that it will increase economic growth and tourism in the Karimunjawa National Park.
As expected, this interesting information received a good response from many people. Especially also very useful for people who are struggling in the world of tourism in Karimunjawa. Now access to Karimunjawa Archipelago become more, because previously there were fast boats and ferries, and now there are more planes. Although this plane is only capable of carrying 10 passengers, it is possible that on another day there will be additional slots for passengers. This has also been promised from Susi Air’s own aircraft, if there are a lot of demand, the capacity will be increased.
Actually, this Susi Air plane does not only serve flights to Karimun Jawa, but also serves flights to Surabaya and Sumenep. The price of a plane ticket to KarimunJawa is not too expensive, from Semarang to Karimun Java, it is enough to only spend 222,000 rupiah for one flight. Meanwhile, if there are passengers who take the route from Surabaya, a fee of IDR 349,000 will be charged. Hopefully with this aircraft can promote tourism in Karimun Jawa in particular and in Indonesia in general.
