AirAsia will launch the route on 2 October 2019 with four flights per week.

AirAsia Regional Commercial Head, Amanda Woo, said, ďIndonesia has more to offer than just Bali and Lombok. Belitung is a beautiful, amazing place with huge untapped tourism potential, and we hope that with this new direct service, more and more people will be able to discover this hidden gem.
