Sriwijaya Air will add a nonstop Makassar-Merauke service, while raising the Makassar-Luwuk frequency on 16 April.

The thrice weekly Makassar-Merauke service will complement its existing daily Makassar-Timika-Jayapura-Merauke service, while its Makassar-Luwuk frequency will be raised from a daily to 10 times weekly service.

It also resumed Makassar-Ambon service on 10 April, using Boeing 737-500 aircraft.

Sriwijaya also confirmed it has suspended all services to Pekanbaru since March. An airline spokesman said that it was “a commercial decision,” but could resume services to the city at a later date.

FlightMaps Analytics shows that the services affected by the suspension are Pekanbaru-Medan and Pekanbaru-Jakarta, which were operated daily. Sriwijaya competed with Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air on the two routes.
