Smailing Tour was established on the 10th July 1976. The word "Smailing" was purposely written that way to adapt the spelling of the Indonesian pronounciation. The company started their business in the sale of air tickets. Within two years the office had become too small to cater for the increasing business. So a new expanded 3-storey office was opened to accommodate the increase of company’s activities. Tour operations was then introduced covering inbound, outbound and domestic packages. A year later in 1979 Smailing Tour obtained their IATA status and again the office was moved to a larger and better location at Jl. Hayam Wuruk No. 2, Jakarta Pusat.

Branch offices were also opened to cover the strategic business areas around the capital city of Jakarta. The Setiabudi Building branch was established in 1982, followed by Bukit Duri Plaza and Skyline Building in 1989. King Plaza and Plaza Indonesia were added in 1990. Through 1995 Pondok Indah Mall, Mulia Tower, Cilandak Commercial Estate and recently Times Square Building and Jakarta Stock Exchange were added to the outlet. The Bali office was opened in 1988 to promote inbound tour operations.

In 1993 Smailing Tour made their biggest move to the new Head Office 5-storey building, 5 times the size of their former location. But it was not just moving from one place to another. It was time for change - a new era had begun. The new corporate image was restyled and new logo introduced. Modern facilities such as intregated and extensive computer networks were installed to improve the efficiency of service. Every effort was made to further upgrade the standard of service to customers.

This magazine carried various tourism news and Smailing Tour products update.
