Indonesia welcomes 1.14 million foreign tourists in April

Indonesia saw 1.14 million tourist arrivals in April, a 7.09 percent increase from March, according to a report from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS).

The figure is also 26.75 percent higher than in the same period last year, which saw 901,090 arrivals.

BPS data also shows that the highest percentage of tourists arrived at the Sam Ratulangi International Airport in North Sulawesi, followed by the Lombok International Airport in West Nusa Tenggara and Sultan Syarif Kasim II International Airport in Riau Islands.

The Sam Ratulangi airport has been a good example of how direct flights could attract tourists, BPS head Suhariyanto said during a press conference on Friday, adding that the airport had opened direct flights to eight cities in China, including Guangzhou.

"We need more [direct flights] as they are more affordable and more efficient for tourists,” he said.

Meanwhile, the number of tourists entering Indonesia through border posts jumped by 333.9 percent to 96,130 in April, compared to 22,150 entries in the same month last year.

The agency also recorded an average occupancy rate of 55.14 percent across the country, an increase compared to April 2016 at 54.38 percent.

The highest room occupancy rate was found in Central Sulawesi, with 65.49 percent, followed by North Sulawesi and Yogyakarta, both of which shared an equal position at 63.66 percent.
