"The Dili - Kupang and Kupang Dili operates, twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays," said AACTL President Ana Rosalia Ximenes Varela, Ministry of Transportation Communications, Kaikoli, Monday (3/6)
The Trans Nusa aircraft in the previous government had stopped operations due to lack of passengers. However, in 2019 Trans Nusa met and committed, to carry out the Dili-Kupang operation.
She explained, the process of an aircraft wanting to operate in Timor as a State is not easy, there are many criteria including several things that need cooperation, but everything is done ( final), it’s now just a matter of waiting for them to start operating.
"In the price they delivered to us a quote from US $ 45.00 to US $ 85.00 per passenger. So when we saw the ticket price from them we issued a permit, which collaborated with ANATL to give them permission to carry out the operation, "Ana said
In the opinion of the Authority, the price of the ticket from the Trans Nusa Airplane submitted, from AACTL guarantees that it will not create any misunderstandings regarding aircraft carrying out operations in Timor-Leste and neighboring countries.
The aircraft itself will load 78 Passengers on every flight from Kupang-Dili.
