There's a small airline that flies single-prop jobs to Nusawiru airport just a few Ks from Batukaras called Susi Air. They fly fish from the market there back to Jakarta where it's loaded on to the JAL planes for the Japanese market. You can imagine the value of those fish! What that means for surfers is that there's cheap seats on the planes. Rp 500,000 a head is pretty sweet compared to 8+ hours on the road. I've done this a couple of times and it's bloody great. Be sure to keep your phone switched on though as Susi Air has been known to change its flight times without letting anyone know.
Have fun mate,

I think if you go to Batukaras using aircraft more expensive than using a car. beside to buying the more expensive plane ticket you also have to hire local transport over there. when a rental car 2 million rupiahs for a 3 day from Jakarta to Batukaras include gasoline and drivers would be more economical if you go with one friend. but if you more cheaper you can use bus from Jakarta to Pangandaran the ticket price Rp 150.000 - 200.000 rupiahs and then use local transportation over there. if you need further information u can chat with me at my yahoo messenger or call me +628164830866. i live in Jakarta
