Garuda boosts network with new routes
Jakarta, April 22, 2013
 

GARUDA Indonesia will launch one regional and eight domestic routes, having taken the delivery of several new aircraft.

 

Regionally, Garuda will kickstart flights from Medan to Penang on June 1. Within Indonesia, the airline will commence Batam-Pekanbaru and Medan-Pekanbaru services as of May 1, Jakarta-Bengkulu and Jakarta-Tanjung Pandan on May 15, and Surabaya-Denpasar from May 19.

 

The aforementioned routes will be operated by Bombardier CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft, configured with 96 seats in a two-class layout.

 

Garuda will also begin Denpasar-Bandung and Balikpapan-Denpasar services on May 18, using Boeing 737-800NG aircraft offering 156 seats in two classes. 

 

The opening of these routes means that travellers from Bandung and Balikpapan can connect to international routes such as in Australia, China, Japan and South Korea through Denpasar, said Garuda president and CEO, Emirsyah Satar.
