Garuda Indonesia Increases Flight Frequency of Jakarta - Amsterdam Route to Six Times per Week

JAKARTA, June 7, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - Starting from July 22, 2015, Garuda Indonesia will increase flight frequency of the Jakarta - Amsterdam (vv) route from five (5) times to six (6) times a week. The addition of Jakarta - Amsterdam (vv) route frequency is part of the airline's efforts to meet rising market demands, and to strengthen its presence in the international market, especially in the European region.

To add more flights between Jakarta and Amsterdam, Garuda Indonesia made adjustments to its Jakarta - Amsterdam - London Gatwick (vv) service, changing it to Jakarta - Singapore - Amsterdam - Jakarta flights three (3) times a week. From now on, Garuda Indonesia serves Jakarta - Amsterdam - London Gatwick (vv) with three weekly flights and flies Jakarta - Singapore - Amsterdam - Jakarta also three times a week.

The addition of Singapore on the Jakarta - Amsterdam service is part of Garuda Indonesia to develop the travel market from Singapore to Europe, as well as to offer a greater choice of travel to customers traveling to Europe from its Amsterdam hub.

Furthermore, with the addition of Singapore on the Jakarta - Amsterdam service, Garuda Indonesia hopes to enhance seat load factor and cargo volume on that particular route considering that Changi International Airport is one of the world's busiest airports, registering an average of 50 million passenger movements every year.

Director Commercial of Garuda Indonesia, Handayani, explained that the airline is increasing flight frequency on the Jakarta - Amsterdam (vv) route to keep up with high travel demands to Europe, as well as to accommodate increasing traffic between Indonesia and countries in Europe.

"Increasing flight frequency also offers our customers a wider choice of flight schedules and ultimately greter travel convenience. In addition to serving Jakarta to London via Amsterdam three (3) times a week, Garuda Indonesia also serves flights from Jakarta - Singapore - Amsterdam - Jakarta as many as three (3) times a week," said Handayani.

"As the busiest city in Europe and indeed in the world, London is a also a very important destination in Garuda Indonesian European network besides Amsterdam. In line with the airline's route restructurization in Europe, Garuda Indonesia is also developing codeshare agreements with various airline partners on the Amsterdam - London service to complement its three times a week schedule. We will continue to enhance our London service in the future to meet increasing market demands," added Handayani.

To serve the Jakarta - Singapore - Amsterdam - Jakarta and Jakarta - Amsterdam - London (vv) services, Garuda Indonesia operates a Boeing 777-300 ER with a capacity of 314 passengers in three flight classes; First Class, Business Class, and Economy Class. The fleet is equipped with "Inflight Connectivity" and "Live TV" available for all passengers, and the exclusive "Chef on Board" for "First Class" passengers to give maximum comfort on long-haul flights.

With "Inflight Connectivity", passengers can still be connected to the internet and carry on with their business activities throughout the entire flight. Meanwhile, the availability of "Live TV" or live broadcast from six international channels, namely CNN International, BBC World, BBC Arabic, NHK World Premium, Euronews, and CNBC, passengers can watch live coverage programs, such as soccer matches on the available sports channel.
