Garuda Indonesia News
18th June 2018
Garuda Indonesia has been removed from Europe's list of banned airlines — along with other Indonesian airlines — as the EU put in place a new system that will evaluate which aircraft are deemed safe enough to fly within and throughout Europe. The new system is being run by Eurocontrol, which is an air traffic control company that cover 41 member and two comprehensive agreement states.
Garuda Indonesia was granted access to fly in Europe after the whole of Indonesia passed an International Civil Aviation Organisation audit which saw Garuda Indonesia, along with two other Indonesian airlines, being given a seven-star safety rating. Garuda Indonesia has been banned from flying in Europe since 2007, when all Indonesian airlines were deemed unsafe to fly in the continent. However, after Garuda Indonesia's extremely high safety rating, the EU air travel executives can see no reason why the airline shouldn't be able to fly in European airspace.

After some internal conflict between management and employees of Garuda Indonesia, it appeared as if employees of the airlines — including pilot and cabin crew — were going to go on strike. However, according to Luhut Pandjaitan, the Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister of Indonesia, there will no longer be a strike. Luhut Pandjaitan claims that those involved with the airline have met to settle their issues and that regularly scheduled services will continue as normal. Luhut has played a role in getting Garuda Indonesia and its employees to get back on track, he reportedly told the airline to prioritise resolving their issues to ensure that customers do not suffer from their actions.
Luhut Pandjiatan stated that he was confident that as long as Garuda Indonesian employees felt as if management were listening to their frustrations, there would be no strike. He stated that those involved have now met, management has listened to Garuda Indonesia staff and the strike will not happen.

Heriandono said that they have already received permission from authorities and they look to operate most flights out of Jakarta to a number of domestic destinations. For international flights, Garuda Indonesia plan to fly additional routes to Hong Kong, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur. He added that passengers tend to book their flights for Eid close ahead of Eid Day as they first need to get their religious holiday allowance approved.

In total, the company has over 4,500 female employees across all areas, however, this was the first time in the carrier's history that a service was ran by an all-female team. Domestic Marketing Director, Nina Sulistyowatti indicated that this will be a regular event going forward, running every year on Katrini Day.

As the Haj season fast approaches, Garuda Indonesia, the flag carrier of the country which has the largest Muslim population in the world, is all set to provide the best in-flight and highly efficient ground services to some 170,00 Indonesian pilgrims who will perform Haj this year. In an interview with the Saudi Gazette, Denni Karnabi Ibrahim, said during his first day in office as the newly appointed Garuda Indonesia General Manager in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Middle East and Africa region, that he is planning to extend Garuda network from Saudi Arabia to beyond Jakarta covering Garuda Int’l network. Garuda is currently flying direct to Jakarta, Medan, Ujung Pandang, Balikpapan, Surabaya and Solo City from Jeddah and Madinah.
Garuda Indonesia will be targeting outbound tourism from Saudi Arabia to Indonesia as Garuda is directly flying to multiple destinations in Indonesia as part of its MEA expansion plan. Garuda will explore possibilities to operate direct flight from Riyadh to Jakarta, the new general manager added. Garuda aims to provide its passengers with the best in-flight experience with Indonesian hospitality with the youngest fleet in the sky. Saudi Arabia and GCC are core of the airline's future plan to further expand its network globally, he remarked. And like the proverbial saying "the proof of the pudding is in the eating", Garuda Indonesia showed that it has passed a series of litmus tests that comfortably earned the national carrier of Indonesia a rightful place in the sun, so to speak. Indonesia's largest airline accounted for 44 percent of domestic flights, up from 39 percent a year ago. Its international flights also captured 28 percent of the market, increasing from 21 percent a year earlier.
19th February 2018
National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia has announced a new collaboration with e-commerce to launch a new service channel named "GarudaShop" that will be available on the platform's website. Following a signing ceremony on Tuesday at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport's Terminal 3, all Garuda passengers will be able to purchase the airline's merchandise and products through the GarudaShop in addition to during flights.
Garuda Indonesia president director Pahala N. Mansury said the cooperation was part of the carrier's efforts to expand its non-core flight business by increasing ancillary revenue, with a target of up to US$54 million this year. "It will also ease customers in purchasing Garuda's merchandise and products online. Holders of Garuda Indonesia-BNI and Garuda Indonesia-Citi Card credit cards will also be given a special program when they conduct transactions in the shop," he added in a statement. Among the products are travel-related items, watches, jewelries, perfumes, beauty products, gadgets, as well as merchandise for children. (kes)
The new IFE system is based on an open Android platform, and will support multiple languages and host applications such as Interactive 3D Map, e-reader and more. The Avii handset, available for business class passengers, is a second-screen application platform that enables passengers to select, control and enhance their multimedia experience. Garuda Indonesia expects to take delivery of the A330neos in 2019.
Garuda Indonesia announced that they will operate Bali round-trip flights on Thursday as well. “Garuda Indonesia’s flights from Denpasar, Bali, from tonight are our way to minimalize accumulation of passengers,” said Hengki Heriandono, vice president corporate secretary of Garuda Indonesia, in a press release. “Therefore, we encourage our passengers to check their schedules.”
PT Garuda Indonesia is targeting a return to profit next year after a loss in 2017 as the flag carrier works to reduce expenses and operations improve. The airline is predicting a profit of $75 million in the second half ending December but won’t be able to post a profit for the 12-month period following a larger loss in the first six months of the year, Chief Executive Officer Pahala Mansury said. Losses in the first half totaled $284 million, he said. The Indonesian carrier is boosting aircraft utilization by reducing flight turnaround time and cutting expenses, steps that will help Garuda turn in a profit next year, Mansury said. The executive, who took the helm six months ago, said Garuda aims to bring down its cost per available seat kilometer to 5.5 cents to 6 cents, from 6.7 cents currently.
“We have been increasing the utilization rate of our aircraft and will continue to do so,” Mansury said in an interview in Jakarta on Oct. 18. “This will be the key factor to determine whether we are profitable in future and whether our financials improve.” By comparison, cost per available seat kilometer across Singapore Airlines group, which includes budget carrier Scoot, was 6.83 Singapore cents (5 cents) in the latest fiscal quarter ended June, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Garuda is in discussions with planemakers to defer aircraft delivery, Mansury said, without giving specific details. In 2015, the carrier committed to 60 planes from Boeing valued at $10.9 billion at list prices and 30 aircraft from Airbus valued at $9.1 billion, before discounts that are customary in the industry for large orders. The company is restructuring its low-cost carrier Citilink and converting debt in the unit to equity, the CEO said. In addition, Garuda plans to boost revenue from other aviation-related businesses such as aircraft maintenance and its hotel subsidiaries. Mansury said Garuda is leveraging on Indonesia’s geographic position to get more overseas customers. Revenue from international flights expanded almost 15 percent in the first half from a year earlier, while the share from domestic travel fell. Garuda shares gained as much as 1.8 percent to 334 rupiah on Monday, trimming its year-to-date drop to 1.2 percent. That compares with a 24 percent gain in the Bloomberg Asia Pacific Airlines Index in 2017. Starting next month, the airline will fly non-stop to London from Jakarta after years of setbacks, allowing it to tap around 700,000 passengers who travel between Australia and the U.K. each year on the so-called “Kangaroo route.” The group is targeting a net income margin of 1 percent to 2 percent in 2018, compared with 0.21 percent last year. “Garuda Indonesia’s situation has improved,” Mansury said.
This will be the only non-stop return leg service available from Indonesia to London Heathrow. The new Soekarno-Hatta to Heathrow direct flights are scheduled for every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, leaving Jakarta at 12:05pm and landing in London at 8pm. This will be flown using a B777-300ER. Boydike Kussudiarso, Garuda Indonesia's General Manager UK & Ireland stated, “the new service will mean that we can offer the only non-stop links between the UK and Indonesia, making us a desirable airline for business and leisure travellers alike travelling between the two countries.”
"Operating non-stop flights from Jakarta to London has been a significant goal of ours for many years, even more so since the new Terminal 3 at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport – which opened just last year – became our home this May" Kussudiarso further said. The service will run 3 x Weekly and will make Garuda Indonesia the only airline offering direct flights there and back. Currently, the outbound route from Heathrow is direct but the return involves a stopover in Singapore. Those flying from Jakarta to London currently still have to transit in Singapore.
Indonesian airline Garuda will changes its operations at Amsterdam Schiphol and London Heathrow this winter. Premium seating is being drastically reduced on services departing Amsterdam as Garuda will now concentrate on volume. At the same time there will be fewer flights out of London Heathrow. The changes take effect on October 29 which is the start of the winter timetable. In the case of London, Garuda will now operate two weekly flights as against three at present. Current schedules see Garuda’s B777-300ERs departing Heathrow every Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday.
Schedules now displayed on the carrier’s website show the Sunday flight axed. Travellers wishing to travel London-Jakarta on a Sunday will be offered a connection with KLM to Amsterdam. The news emerging from Amsterdam will be of equal concern to readers because Garuda has decided to cater more to economy than premium fare customers. First class will be axed altogether from Amsterdam, and business class will be slimmed down.
The new two-class B777-300ER features 393 passengers in total comprising 26 in business and a whopping 367 in economy class. By comparison Garuda’s three class B777-300ERs operating from London accommodate a maximum of 318 passengers with eight in first, 42 in business and 268 in economy class. One good point is that Garuda will continue to adopt the spacious 3-3-3 layout in its economy cabins. Garuda tells Luchtvaart that “The decision was made in view of the huge and increasing demand for economy tickets to Indonesia.” According to Garuda, “This extra capacity means there are plenty of seats available in the high demand period around Christmas and New Year.” For historical reasons Amsterdam has always been Garuda’s European HQ. The airline also flies more frequently from Holland than it does from the UK.
National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia will launch a direct flight route from Jakarta to Banyuwangi starting August, following the news of NAM Air, a subsidiary of Sriwijaya Air, which opened a new route to Blimbingsari Airport in Banyuwangi on July 16. Garuda's new route is hoped to be able to increase the number of tourist visits to the eastern side of Java Island and make it easier for people who live around Banyuwangi such as Situbondo, Jember, Bondowoso and West Bali to travel to Jakarta. Banyuwangi itself is a booming market. According to the data by East Java Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM), Banyuwangi takes the third spot for investment realization in East Java.
