Garuda Indonesia Reinstates Jakarta - Haneda Direct Service



JAKARTA, June 16, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Garuda Indonesia, starting June 15, 2014, officially reinstated its Jakarta - Haneda service to meet market demand and broaden its flight network. Garuda Indonesia President & CEO, Emirsyah Satar and HE Ambassador of Japan to Indonesia, Mr. Yoshinori Katori officiated at the symbolic launching of the service at Gate E2 Soekarno - Hatta International Airport.

For Garuda Indonesia, the occasion signifies an important moment in history as its echoes the airline's first flight from Indonesia to Japan on 13 March 1962 which departed from the old Kemayoran Airport Jakarta for Haneda via Hong Kong, using a Lockheed L-118 Electra.

The Jakarta - Haneda daily flight schedule departs from Jakarta at 13.05 (Local Time) and arrives in Haneda at 22.35 (Local Time). On the return flight, GA 875 departs from Haneda at 00.30 (Local Time) and arrives in Jakarta at 06.00 WIB. To serve the Jakarta-Haneda direct service, Garuda Indonesia operates the newest Airbus A330-300 series that features a two class layout; business class with a seat capacity of 36 passengers and economy class for 215 passengers.

Garuda Indonesia President & CEO, Emirsyah Satar said that the reinstatement of the Jakarta - Haneda service is part of Garuda Indonesia's strategic effort to broaden its services to Japan and beyond. "The service allows Garuda Indonesia passengers to continue their journey to other cities in Japan with connecting ANA flights, or eventually to the United States with codeshare Delta Air Lines flights," said Emir

"Japan is very important to Garuda Indonesia and the people of Japan has always been a potential market. For more than 50 years, Garuda Indonesia has shown its support towards the diplomatic relations between Indonesia and Japan - especially in increasing economic, tourism and social activities between the two countries," added Emirsyah Satar.

With the opening of the Jakarta - Haneda direct service, Garuda Indonesia currently serves 39 weekly flights to Japan, including the Jakarta - Osaka (Kansai), Denpasar - Osaka (Kansai), Jakarta - Tokyo (Narita), Denpasar - Tokyo (Narita), Denpasar - Tokyo (Haneda), and Jakarta - Tokyo (Haneda).

Through the codeshare agreement with All Nippon Airways, Garuda Indonesia passengers will be able to fly with ANA to various large cities in Japan, such as Fukuoka, Saporro and Okinawa.

In addition, the opening of the Jakarta - Haneda service will offer Garuda Indonesia passengers the choice to continue their journey to Los Angeles and Seattle with Garuda Indonesia and Delta Airlines codesharing flights.

The launching of the Jakarta - Haneda direct service is part of the airline's "network" expansion program, especially in the international sector, following Garuda Indonesia's official entry into the "SkyTeam" global alliance.

As a SkyTeam member, Garuda Indonesia can now expand its service network to 1,064 destination cities in 178 countries that are served by SkyTeam member airlines, which constitutes more than 90% of the world's air traffic, with up to 15 thousand flights per day.

In line with Garuda Indonesia's continuous expansion through the airline's "Quantum Leap 2011-2015" long-term program, in 2014, Garuda Indonesia plans to purchase as many as 27 new airplanes, consisting of two (2) B777-300, four (4) A330, twelve (12) B738, three (3) CRJ, and six (6) ATR 72-600.
