Merpati's New Route: Denpasar-labuan Bajo

June 17, Online

State-owned regional carrier Merpati Nusantara Airlines (MNA) has opened a new route serving Denpasar, Bali and Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) to give domestic and foreign tourists wider transportation access ahead of the Sail Komodo 2013 event in August.

Your comments:

I suggest that Merpati use a different aircraft than the ill-fat-ed Chinese-manufactured Xian MA60 twin turboprop aircraft that sustained heavy damage to its two engines when it made a very hard landing and skidded on the runway last week.

The Labuan Bajo airstrip can only take small, short landing and take off aircraft at best Good luck!
