    Fly Air Asia to Pekanbaru

    by zuyao Written Jul 8, 2011

    Air Asia operates flights from Kuala Lumpur to Pekanbaru. The fares are cheap and it only takes 45 mins. The airport at Pekanbaru is very small with very limited facilities. No duty free shops that I could see.

    The Sultan Syarif Kasim II airport in Pekanbaru (airport code PKU) is the new airport for the town, replacing the old Simpang Tiga airport. Being a new airport, the airport building is quite impressive with local design and wood works.

PKU airport is also a major gateway into Sumatra from Singapore which is 40 minutes away by air.

    Garuda Indonesia

    I took Garuda Airlines from Padang to Pekanbaru (transit) before continuing my journey to Singapore. Overall, I am satisfied with the flight - no delay and good in flight service. Highly recommend Garuda Airlines to others.

    Do spare some time out to visit neighbouring countries like Malaysia or Indonesia. If you feel like going back to the basics…you may visit Riau, Indonesia. Take a ferry down to Batam from World Trade Centre. The ferry schedules are available at the counters or you may just check it out with your hotel reception. From the Batam Ferry terminal, you gtt transfer to a domestic airline to Pekanbaru. Voila!

    Do take the Merpati Airline to Hang Nadim Airport. From there you may head on down to your hotel by taxis. This airline operates regularly and takes off every hour.

    Colourful and interesting huh? Well, these are actually TAXIS that can accommodate up to 2 passengers. Something like the ones you see in Thailand a.k.a. Tuk-Tuk.
