Bringing Its Service to the Next Level

Tangerang, INDONESIA, Feb 2, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - As a part of its fleet revitalization program along with its service enhancement program as a "5-Star Airline", Indonesia's national flag carrier airline, Garuda Indonesia, on Monday (February 1) presented its new aircraft including the Airbus A330-300 with its "Super Diamond Seat Business Class" and the 10th Boeing 777-300ER.

The Airbus A330-300 with its Super Diamond Seat Business Class, registered PK-GPZ, is the first out of four Airbus A330-300 that will be delivered in 2016, while the PK-GIK Boeing 777-300ER is the last delivery of the ten B777-300ERs that were ordered by Garuda in 2013.

"The arrival of these new aircraft is a part of Garuda's commitment to present a modernized fleet with the best service, in line with its business network expansion program in Asia Pacific, Middle East and Europe region," explained M.

Arif Wibowo added, as a national flag carrier awarded with a "5-Star Airline" rating, both service and safety are mandatory for Garuda Indonesia. These new additions in Garuda's fleet are hoped to offer more value to all of Garuda's customers, particularly the "Super Diamond Seat Business Class" integrated with the "Garuda Indonesia Experience" service concept which will present a distinct service and comfort for business class passengers.

Equipped with an 11" LCD touch-screen in-flight entertainment with handset/remote, USB plug and power outlet in each seat, ensures Garuda Indonesia is the first airline in Asia which implements the in-flight entertainment set in the economy cabin.
