JAKARTA: To assist relief work on earthquake-devastated Nias island, Merpati Nusantara Airlines has added two additional flights each day between Medan and Gunung Sitoli and Sibolga.

The extra flights will be effective until April 9, using locally produced CN-235 aircraft.

"We are flying more frequently to the disaster-stricken area to transport logistics, relief workers and relatives of quake victims," Merpati corporate secretary Jaka Pujiyono said in a press release.

He added that fares for flights to Nias would not be increased.

The March 28 earthquake caused Merpati to suspend services to Nias for four days. — JP
