Bisnis Indonesia reports that AirAsia is interested in building a network of low-cost hotels in several locations across Indonesia, including Bali.
Sendjaja Widjaja, the Deputy-Chairman, Indonesia, for AirAia, told the press that hotels to be built in Indonesia will pursue a low-cost formula in keeping with the carriers low-fare approach to the market.
Widjaja said: "The construction of the hotel will take place this year and begin operations next year. In their operation we will introduce a tariff based on consumption; if a guest uses the air-conditioning he'll pay more than the customer who does not turn on the air-conditioner."
AirAsia, through its Indonesian affiliate Indonesian AirAsia, flies to a large network of Indonesian destinations using Boeing 737-400 and Airbus 320 aircraft.
