Citilink made history during the Youth Pledge Day on Oct. 28 by launching its maiden flight to Silangit International Airport in North Tapanuli, North Sumatra, from Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport in Jakarta.

The Citilink plane arrived after the arrival of Garuda Indonesia flight from Singapore. Using an Explore Jet Bombardier CRJ-100 aircraft, the flight departed from Singapore at 12:55 p.m. and arrived at 1:10 p.m.

The flight from Garuda Indonesia is the first international flight to land on the airport.

Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan together with Tourism Minister Arief Yahya attended the launching ceremony of the airport as an international airport.

Passengers from Singapore were welcomed with Tortor traditional dance and given an ulos from Luhut and Arief.
In his speech, Luhut said the flight would make it easier for foreign tourists to travel to Lake Toba.

“The flight from Singapore only takes 50 minutes,” said Luhut.
