01-02-2008: Jetstar Asia to fly to Medan in 2Q
By Woon Wu Lin

SEPANG: Jetstar Asia is looking to fly to Medan in the second quarter (2Q) of the year as it seeks routes within a five-hour flight range, its chief executive officer Chong Phit Lian said.

She said Jetstar Asia flies to 14 cities in nine countries and was keeping an eye out for more cities within the five-hour flight range.

Chong was speaking to reporters on Feb 1 at the arrival of its inaugural Singapore-KL flight at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Jetstar Asia will fly to Macau on Feb 2.

She said Jetstar would like to increase its flights to KLIA and would apply for an optimum of six to seven flights a day between KLIA and Singapore under the “open skies agreement” at the end of the year.

“We think there would be enough volume because the current number of flights to Jakarta and Bangkok, and the KL and Singapore route is very much underserved. KL has a lot of attractions in food and shopping,” she said.

Chong said the starting fare, excluding tax was S$28 (RM64), and Jetstar Asia was also running a promotion to allow travellers to get an extra seat free for each seat bought. It was targeting its loyal customers who had made previous e-mail or short message service (SMS) bookings.

She said the return flight would be less than S$200 (RM456). She said the rates were cheaper than before and cited a family she spoke to onboard the flight who found the rates attractive enough to fly 20 members for a friend’s wedding in Malaysia.

Chong also said Jetstar was also eager to fly to other cities in Malaysia including Penang, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, “and if Ipoh can take our aircraft, that would be another interesting place for Singaporean travellers”.

Garuda to order more 737-800s and firm order for 787s
By Leithen Francis

Garuda Indonesia is about to double its order for Boeing 737-800s plus order ten Boeing 777-200ERs and firm up a commitment for Boeing 787s and this is all in addition to the 777-200ERs and 737s it is seeking to lease.

The carrier’s executive VP of operations, Ari Sapari, says at next week’s Singapore Airshow the carrier will be firming up options for 25 737-800s, increasing its total order to 50 737-800s. The airshow starts 19 February.

Garuda’s initial order for 25 737-800s, with options for 25 more, was signed early last year and Sapari says the first aircraft from this initial order is to be delivered in May 2009 and that year a total of five 737-800s will be delivered.

He also says the carrier will sign a firm order for ten 777-200ERs and that this order represents the resurrection of an earlier 777 deal that involved an order for six 777-200ERs with options for four more.

In the 1990s the carrier signed a firm order for six 777-200ERs but then the 1997 Asian financial crisis led it to defer this indefinitely.

Sapari also says at next week’s airshow the airline will firm up a commitment for 787s and hopes first deliveries can occur in 2013.

In September 2005 the carrier signed an agreement for ten 787-8s but this agreement stopped short of being a firm order.

Sapari’s colleague at Garuda, Yudhi Fadjari, who is tasked with helping source aircraft for lease, says the first Garuda 787 might end up being delivered later than 2013 because of Boeing’s recently announced delay in the programme.

He also says the number of 787-8s to be ordered is still subject to approval by Indonesia’s ministry of state-owned enterprises but the ministry will make its decision before the signing in Singapore.

Fadjari adds, Indonesia’s minister for state owned enterprises, the minister for transportation and Garuda president Emirsyah Satar will be at the signing ceremony.

While Garuda is planning to order aircraft so it can expand aggressively from 2009 onwards, in the more immediate term it plans to expand by getting aircraft on lease.

Fadjari says the carrier is seeking to lease Boeing 737-300/400s, Boeing 737-800s and Boeing 777-200ERs.

“This year we would like up to five units of 737-300/400s, preferably 400s because it has more capacity,” says Fadjari, adding that it wants three to five year dry leases.

It also wants to dry lease as many 737-800s as it can get and for these newer aircraft to be on seven to eight year leases.

And it is seeking five to seven year dry-leases on five 777-200ERs for delivery in 2009, says Fadjari.

Boeing wins order for 10 777-300 jets from Garuda Indonesia


Singapore (ANTARA News) - US aircraft giant Boeing Co said Tuesday it won an order for 10 of its 777-300ER jets from Garuda Indonesia, worth more than 1 billion US dollars at list prices.

The Jakarta-based flag carrier ordered four 777-300ER aircraft and decided to convert a previous order for six 777-200ERs to-300ERs, Boeing was quoted by Thomson Financial as saying.

The Chicago-based manufacturer also said Garuda confirmed a previous unidentified order for seven 737-800 jets placed in 2007 and said it converted 18 of its existing 737-700s on order to 737-800s. (*)

Boeing, Lion Air Announce Order For 737s

February 19, 2008 18:34 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 19 (Bernama) -- Boeing and Jakarta-based Lion Air today announced an order for 56 Next-Generation 737-900ER (Extended Range) airplanes, said Boeing.

this order, valued at more than US$4.4 billion (US$1=RM3.22) at current list prices, brings Lion Airs combined orders for the 737-900ER to 178.

Additionally, the airline acquired purchase rights for an additional 50 737-900ERs, Boeing said in a statement issued from Singapore.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes Vice President, Sales, Dinesh Keskar and Lion Air Founder and President Director Rusdi Kirana announced the order at the Singapore Air Show.

“The Next-Generation 737 is the right airplane for our airline, our customers and our growing route structure," Kirana said in the statement.

"Lion Air is committed to growing its fleet with fuel-efficient, reliable and technologically advanced aircraft, while offering its passengers the best service and lowest fares in the market."

Boeing launched the 737-900ER program in July 2005 when Lion Air announced the initial order for 30 of the newest 737 model.

All of Lion Airs airplanes will be equipped with performance-enhancing Blended Winglets, which improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by up to four percent.

"Lion Air, the worlds largest operator of the 737-900ER, is leveraging the Next-Generation 737s unmatched economics, reliability and overall value to deliver superior service for its customers," Keskar said.

"We look forward to growing our relationship with this most valued customer for many years to come," he said.

The 737-900ER incorporates a new pair of exit doors and a flat rear-pressure bulkhead that allow a maximum capacity of 220 passengers in a single-class layout.

Aerodynamic and structural design changes - including strengthened wings, a two-position tailskid, enhancements to the leading- and trailing-edge flap systems, optional Blended Winglets, and auxiliary fuel tanks - will allow the 737-900ER to accommodate higher takeoff weights and increase its range to 3,200 nautical miles (5,900 km).

The 737-900ER has substantial economic advantages over competing models, including six percent lower operating costs per trip and four percent lower operating costs per seat than its competitor -- which is more than 9,550 pounds (4,340 kg) heavier.

The 737-900ER joins the 737-600, -700, -700ER and -800 airplanes and will share the same industry-leading reliability of the other Next-Generation 737 series models.

To date, eight customers have placed orders for 227 Next-Generation 737-900ERs. The 737 is the best-selling commercial jetliner in history, with more than 7,700 orders from more than 245 customers around the world.

Boeing has more than 2,000 unfilled orders for the airplane with a value exceeding US$145 billion at current list prices.

Lion Air received the first 737-900ER in April 2007 when the airplane was delivered in a special dual paint scheme that combined the Lion Air lion on the vertical stabilizer and the Boeing livery colours on the fuselage.

The airline has received a total of nine 737-900ERs to date.


Lion Air operates an all-Boeing fleet and is the largest low-fare airline in Asia, with traffic approaching one million passengers per month since the airline began operations in June 2000.

Lion Air wants to expand their lowcost activities to other countries like Thailand & Australia. That's why they've already ordered so many planes and still expanding their orders 'every' airshow.

Good to see Indonesia's airlines expanding. They all just need to get their websites working with online booking because searching for flights and comparing prices online is a nightmare. Missing links, website outages and having to call to check schedules is pathetic.

Bad Websites:
http://www.merpati.co.id/
http://www.sriwijayaair-online.com/
www.garuda-indonesia.com

Fair websites:
www.lionair.co.id

Good websites:
http://www.mandalaair.com/ <--doesn't work in FireFox
www.adamair.co.id
Maybe booking flights in Indonesia is the same way it used to be before airlines in the United States offered online booking. The first time I bought a ticket was in 2004 so I'm not sure how booking tickets and comparing prices were done before the advent of online booking.


Edit: Lion Air has really improved their website since I last checked (2 weeks ago), very nice and much more user friendly.

He he he yup, since I've got this news.... (2007) still unsure

By the end of May, a new full-service Indonesian airline, Lorena Air, is set to have taken to the skies, serving six routes between six major cities using three leased Boeing 737-400 aircraft. President director Eka Sari Lorena Soerbakti said that the airline would at first fly from Jakarta to Manado (North Sulawesi), Balikpapan (East Kalimantan), Padang (West Sumatra), Palembang (South Sumatra) and Denpasar (Bali) according to a report in the Jakarta Post.

“Then later this year, we intend to purchase three more aircraft of a similar type as we also plan to introduce a Medan-Surabaya service,” Eka said..

The carrier is 100 percent owned by the Lorena group — best known as a luxury bus operator on the islands of Java, Madura, Bali and Sumatra.

With Lorena boasting years of experience in the transportation business, Eka says she believes the airline has what it takes to be successful, even at a time when the country’s airline industry is reeling from a series of tragic accidents.

From the disappearance of a Boeing 737-400 operated by Adam Air off Sulawesi early in the year to a Garuda Indonesia Boeing 737-400 aircraft bursting into flames after overshooting the runway at Adisucipto airport in Yogyakarta in March, a huge question mark has been left hanging over airline safety in Indonesia.

However, despite the current lack of confidence in the local aviation industry, Eka said she believed Lorena could carve out a niche and establish a place for itself in the market as a full-service carrier.

“There were 39 million domestic air passengers last year, about 3 million more than the target. And the number will continue to rise.

“The demand is there. So, I think the arrival of Lorena is timely. With all these safety concerns, the market is actually waiting for a full-service, dependable airline,” Eka said.

The new airline, Eka said, had signed an agreement with Futura International Airways, a leading global charter company based in Spain, for consultancy and advisory services, including for aircraft maintenance, and pilot and flight-crew training.

Lorena was currently seeking safety certification from both the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA), the European equivalent of the FAA.
National flag-carrier Garuda Nusantara is currently the only domestic carrier that has certification from the FAA.

“We expect to have flown around 1.5 million passengers by the end of the year,” Eka said, adding that the company also planned to establish overseas routes, starting with Singapore, next year.


As I know, they will launch to operate on March/April 2008 for Surabaya (SUB) to Jakarta (CGK) (2 - 4 flight/day) and next route Jakarta (CGK) to Palembang (PLM) and Jakarta (CGK) to Pekanbaru (PKU) via Palembang (PLM) with Boeing 737-300 for all their flight schedule.... Tagline "Excellent Way to Fly"....

Indonesia plans H1 start to build airport rail link

Reuters - Wednesday, February 27JAKARTA, Feb 26 - Indonesia plans to start building a rail link costing nearly $400 million to Jakarta's main Soekarno-Hatta international airport in the first half of 2008, the head of the state firm operating the project said on Tuesday.

The project is part of government efforts to improve shoddy infrastructure in the heavily congested capital where roads are clogged from morning to night with cars, motorcycles and ageing smoke-belching buses.

"We are in the process of hiring a financial adviser to help us decide the best financing scheme," said Masjraul Hidayat, president director of PT RaiLink, a joint venture between state railway firm PT Kereta Api and the state airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II.

Hidayat said the firm has been eyeing a scheme where 70 percent of the 3.6 trillion rupiah investment was financed using bank loans.

The firm expects to complete the 33-km rail link in the third quarter of 2009.

About two thirds of the line will be elevated and the project is almost twice the length of an original plan for an 18-km railroad.


He said that plans for the rail link had been lengthened because the train needed to detour interchanges along the initial route and part of the track needed to be elevated to avoid traffic congestion and floods.

Hidayat said he expected the remaining 11 km of track to be fully elevated by 2017-2018.

RaiLink estimated the number of passengers travelling between the airport and the capital was 32 million last year.

"From our survey, we expect to carry about 30 percent of passengers," Hidayat said.

The current main tollroad link to the airport often faces serious problems in the wet season when floods can sever the route and cause transport chaos.

Early this month, heavy rains caused flooding that left thousands stranded at the airport.
