Singapore-Jakarta world’s fastest growing air route

Reading Time: 1 minute

landingThe flight route between Jakarta to Singapore has become the world’s fastest-growing major international air route, according to the Center for Aviation, a market research company.

The number of available seats jumped by 24 per cent in the past year. The rapid growth of air travel on this particular route highlights the strong expansion of the Indonesian economy but also its constraints, with many Indonesians traveling to their wealthy neighbour to get access to international standard healthcare, reliable onward travel connections and discreet wealth management services.

It is expected that the seat number will be growing by another 25 per cent in the next 12 months.

With 130,000 return seats a week by November 2013, Jakarta-Singapore will be the second biggest international route after Hong Kong-Taiwan and ahead of Hong Kong-Shanghai, Dubai-Doha and New York JFK-London Heathrow.

Indonesia is Singapore’s biggest source of foreign visitors and tourism receipts, with 2.6 million Indonesian visitors spending $2.3 billion in 2011. Tens of thousands of wealthy Indonesians have properties and businesses in Singapore, which is home to at least 70 Indonesians with net assets of more than $30 million, according to a report from UBS and the research company Wealth-X.
