AirAsia Opens Singapore-Yogyakarta Route

AirAsia has announced exciting new flights from Singapore to Yogyakarta starting this month, offering those flying from the Changi airport an opportunity to explore the city of cultural heritage. This is why Yogyakarta is the second most visited destination in Indonesia, next to Bali.

Flights to Yogyakarta will operate four times a week, on Monday-Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays. The A320s-designated journey will leave Changi at 11:20 local time and land in Yogyakarta International Airport (YIA) in Kulon Progo at 12:35 local time. The return leg of the journey will leave YIA at 07:45 local time and land at 10:45 local time.

Incredible Yogyakarta

Yogyakarta is a city that often seduces tourists with its culture and the friendliness of its citizens. The city has developed into one of the favorite destinations for domestic and foreign tourists. Known as the “cultural center” of Java because of its iconic Buddhist and Hindu temples, Yogyakarta is also famous for its lively culture, ancient history, traditional arts and epic adventures.

The two iconic UNESCO World Heritage temples of Borobudur and Prambanan draw the majority of visitors to Yogyakarta. They are well worth a visit, but their attractions also vary, ranging from enticing culinary pockets to cultural events that are always interesting to watch. Not to mention a place to shop or learn about batik.

Flying High with the New Yogyakarta International Airport

Far from the city centre, Yogyakarta’s new airport sparked complaints from many tourists. But now the management has new ammunition to deal with frustration: art and craft offerings. All of YIA’s work responds to the local context: the location of the airport in Kulon Progo, Yogyakarta culture, and Javanese philosophy and mythology, some with a modern twist on aviation. Apart from making YIA like a public gallery, this presentation strengthens Yogyakarta’s character as the axis of Indonesian contemporary art.

There are at least six works dedicated to the area occupied by the airport. I Made Widya Diputra, for example, presents pillars with the theme of the mangosteen tree, which is a typical flora of Kulon Progo, while Budi Kustarto concocts a work by Kebonrejo that tells the story of agrarian life in Kebonrejo Village, also in Kulon Progo.

What YIA is doing is nothing new. Many airports have long exhibited works of art in their terminals. Changi inserted a number of sculptures and installations, while Charles de Gaulle in Paris founded the Espace Musees art museum, and Schiphol in Amsterdam opened a branch of the Rijksmuseum. In Indonesia, we can find a similar presentation at Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport.

Even so, compared to other airports, YIA has several advantages. Using a curation system, this airport’s works have a common thread, are not messy, and are all arranged with the involvement of curators.
