As demand for travel continues increasing at an unprecedented rate
among Indonesians, the 15th ASTINDO Travel Fair is set to take place in
the Main Atrium of PIK Avenue Mall, Pantai Indah Kapuk, North Jakarta,
from 31 August to 3 September 2023.
"The tourism landscape has witnessed a remarkable resurgence in the
wake of the pandemic,” said Pauline Suharno, general chairperson of
ASTINDO and president of the Federation of ASEAN Travel Associations
(FATA). “The yearning for travel among the populace has witnessed a
considerable surge, reinstating their faith in exploring the world.
However, the awareness that travel costs have evolved since the
pre-pandemic era is more pronounced than ever."
In its commitment to making travel accessible, ASTINDO Travel Fair
offers promotional deals on flight tickets and tour packages, in
collaboration with banking partner BCA.
Aligning with the Indonesian Government's ambitious target of 1.4
billion domestic tourists, ASTINDO introduces the ‘Sensational
Travelling #DIINDONESIAONLY’ tour package. This initiative invites
travellers to explore captivating destinations across the archipelago.
To further incentivise exploration, ASTINDO will be offering additional
discounts on domestic tour packages.
The ASTINDO Travel Fair further boasts exclusive promotional prices
during its duration. From Bali to Europe, enticing options are available
to a wide range of travellers.
Beyond Jakarta, the ASTINDO Travel Fair expands its reach to Surabaya
and Denpasar. The event runs concurrently at Mal Tunjungan Plaza 6,
Surabaya, from 31 August to 3 September, and at Living World, Denpasar,
from 1 to 3 September. A lineup of 21 renowned International and
Domestic airlines, including ANA - All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific,
Garuda Indonesia, and Singapore Airlines, will be offering attractive
promotional ticket prices.
ASTINDO's collaborations extend internationally, with partnerships
including the Hong Kong Tourism Board, Korea Tourism Organization, and
Singapore Tourism Board. This network contributes to the fair's
richness, offering diverse travel possibilities.
Suharno, underscoring the value of travel agents said: "Regrettably,
there exists a misconception that booking through travel agents is
costlier. Have you ever considered the invaluable time lost on online
research? Our travel consultants provide comprehensive explanations to
potential customers. ASTINDO's official and licensed Travel Agent
services can avoid pitfalls like visa mismatches."
