President Jokowi to fly economy class to Singapore

President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo and First Lady Iriana are scheduled to fly to Singapore on Friday to attend the high-school graduation ceremony of their youngest son, Kaesang Pangarep.

Cabinet Secretary Andi Widjajanto said that the trip was personal and that the couple would fly Garuda Indonesia economy class, attended only by a few personnel from the Presidential Security Detail (Paspampres).

"They will attend the graduation ceremony. It's a personal trip so no ministers or officials are in tow," he said.

"This is Pak Jokowi as Joko Widodo, not as the President."

Jokowi, who is scheduled to leave Jakarta at around 4 pm, would stay one night in Singapore at a modest hotel, according to Andi.
