Lombok was devastated by earthquakes last year. There were many casualties, damaged infrastructures and buildings. Tourists avoided the island.
To help improving the livelihood in Lombok, Air Asia is making Lombok one of their hubs, increasing flight frequencies and added new destinations including Perth.
It is a high Risk Venture. Lombok is not a well established tourist destination and has just had bad earthquakes. The odds are against Air Asia.
I wish them all the success.
This is more commendable compared to Malaysia who thinks that banning Israeli athletes is a humanitarian effort.
