Meanwhile premium consumption for the return journey, which will peak four days after Idul Fitri, on Aug.13, will amount to 105,502 kiloliters, up by 30 percent from the average daily consumption.

Karen said that during Idul Fitri the consumption of Aviation Turbine Fuel (avtur) consumption would be up by 8.6 percent from 10,619 kiloliters to 11,536 kiloliters daily.
