A Message from Panorama Destination Indonesia 

Hello from Indonesia!  

The summer season is well and truly underway now, with arrivals on the rise and lots of events coming up in the calendar. This includes the Indonesia Outdoor Festival from 4-7 July and Travel Meet Asia 2024 from 3-4 July, which we’ll be attending as buyers. If you’re planning to attend too, we look forward to seeing you there. 

Demand for Indonesia continues to rise among international tourists, evidenced by increased route provision by international airlines in key source markets. Etihad Airways has just announced a range of new direct flights from Abu Dhabi to Denpasar Bali, which started on 26 June and are currently flying four times a week. 

The many visitors who come to Indonesia really are spoiled for choice in terms of travel destinations. From Sumatra and Java to Bali, Lombok and Komodo, there is so much to choose from. As always, our diverse range of products and services help international travellers make the most of their stay, and experience a true flavour of Indonesia. 

As the summer season approaches its peak, we’re happy to report that visitor numbers are soaring, with many European group bookings in particular. For all those travelling to Indonesia this holiday season, we hope you have a wonderful time and will be happy to help arrange your stay.  

Best regards, 

Ricky Setiawanto,  

Director of Business Development, Panorama Destination Indonesia.
