India is seen as a significant market to boost tourism which can realize the government intention of hosting 17 million international tourists in 2018-19, said deputy manager for Indonesian Tourism Ministry. This year, the Indonesian Tourism Ministry plans to host over 700,000 Indian Tourists this year, compared to 485,000 visiting last year.

“The target of 700,000 Indian tourists cannot only be attained via direct flights. We have to work with others countries like Malaysia and Singapore as hubs,” added the deputy manager. Singapore and Malaysia attract around 1.8 million tourists from India every year, and it would be ideal if Indian tourists also opt to visit Indonesia.
