International visitor arrivals to Indonesia reached 9.44 million last year, up 7.2% compared to 2013.

According to the latest data from the country’s Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS), reported by the Antara news agency, the full-year total was boosted by a strong December, when 915,300 people visited the country, up 19.7% from the same month in 2013.

Arrivals into Bali‘s Ngurah Rai International Airport increased 15.1% last year, but growth at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport was limited to just 0.3%, after some flights were moved to the capital’s second airport, Halim Perdanakusuma.

Arrivals at Lombok increased 73.1% year-on-year, following the completion of a new, expanded airport.

The BPS also reported a 5.6% decline in Indonesian hotel occupancy last year, to 50.1%, as a glut of new room supply entered the market.
