i personally have neutral judgement about the new livery, new cabin interior, etc. I like the fact that GA tries to change its image (for the better) but I think the execution is rather poor and rushed.

what so special with the old livery?? it's just a plain white fuselage with garuda indonesia font on it. the new one is so much better (IMO)

anyway PK-GPJ, the newest GA's plane on the fleet and currently the only one with the new livery will fly Jakarta - Seoul on July 3rd 2009 on its first international commercial flight.

Batavia Air to open Jakarta-Jedda flight route


Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Batavia Air will open a Jakarta - Jedda flight route and serve it five times a week starting on August 10, its commercial director said.

"We will use two Airbus A330-200s (to serve the route)," Bachrul Hakim said here on Thursday.

Batavia Air flights would target Indonesian migrant workers employed in Saudi Arabia and Indonesian Muslims wishing to perform minor hajj (umroh) in the Holy Land, he said.

"The market is quite large. On average other airlines that have served the route recorded 85-90 percent load factor," he said.

The head of Batavia Air representative office in the Middle East, Sukirno Sukarna, said the airline had secured in-principle permit from both countries.

"We obtained it (in-principle permit) from the Saudi Kingdom a month ago," he said.

He said the airline was in the middle of completing technical preparations including those for the arrival of the two planes used to serve the route.

The planes were scheduled to arrive in Jakarta in the third week of July 2009, he said.
Batavia Air is the second national private airline to serve the route.

Earlier in March, Lion Air opened a Jakarta-Jedda flight route.

The number of air travelers between Indonesia and Saudi Arabia is currently estimated at 50,000 per month. (*)

Deal to See More Flights, Routes With Malaysia

So much for rising military and political tensions.

Responding to growing demand for airline flights between Indonesia and Malaysia, the two nations will renew and expand an airline industry agreement that would see more flight routes and passengers between the two, Indonesia’s chief aviation official said on Sunday.

Herry Bhakti Singayudha, director general of civil aviation at the Ministry of Transportation, said two days of talks with officials in Malaysia last week yielded agreement on a new memorandum of understanding between the two countries.

One of the key points, he said, is “fifth freedom traffic rights,” which would grant Indonesian airlines permission for stopovers in three Malaysian cities — Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kinabalu — to fill more seats.

“For example, if our airline is flying to Bangkok, it can stop in Kuala Lumpur to pick up additional passengers,” he said. “Each week, seven flights would be allowed to do that.”

Herry said that in return, Malaysia would get additional flights to Jakarta, Medan, Surabaya and Bali.

“We needed to renew the agreement because the aviation industry has been growing rapidly in the two countries,” he said.

Currently, state-owned Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air, Indonesia Air Asia and Sriwijaya Air fly to Malaysia, while Malaysian Airlines and Air Asia have permission to fly to Indonesia.

Indonesia’s airline industry grew rapidly following deregulation 10 years ago, which spawned a number of low-budget airlines. Despite deadly crashes and poor safety records, Indonesian carriers continue to thrive, particularly those plying domestic routes.

Herry said Malaysian officials and their Indonesian counterparts would sign the aviation agreement in Jakarta during the third week of August.

The talks were held despite simultaneous high-profile disputes between the two countries, one about the contested Ambalat waters off Borneo Island, and the other over allegations of abuse by Indonesian teenage model Manohara Odelia Pinot against her estranged Malaysian husband, Prince Tengku Temenggong Muhammad Fakhry of Kelantan State.

The talks, held from Tuesday through Wednesday, also broached the subject of a Malaysian government regulation mandating that Indonesian migrant workers flying into Malaysia must exclusively use its flagship carrier, Malaysian Airlines.

“It has been proven that we in fact never obeyed the rule,” Herry said, “because we never fully agreed on the policy.”

State news agency Antara quoted Sahar Andika Putra, transportation attache at the Indonesian Embassy in Malaysia, as saying Datuk Zakaria Bahari, the secretary general of Malaysia’s Transportation Ministry, had signed a document nullifying that policy.
“Officially, the ministerial decree dated May 17, 2006, stating that Indonesian migrant workers are obligated to fly with Malaysian Airlines has been annulled,” Sahar said.

Garuda Finalizing Acquisition of Star Air.

Unable to Reach an Agreement with Linus Airways, Garuda Moves Ahead with Purchase of Defunct Star Air.

(6/20/2009) Unsuccessful in its bid to reach an agreement that would allow the purchase of 100% of the shares of Linus Airways, the national air carrier Garuda Indonesia is reported to be near finalizing an agreement to purchase Star Air. Both Linus Airways and Star Air ceased operations in 2008. Garuda is seeking to purchase the operating licenses of an existing Indonesian carrier as a "fast track" solution to the lack of an airline operating license and other licenses needed for its low-cost subsidiary Citilink.

Quoted in Bisnis Indonesia, the Director General of Civil Aviation, Herry Bakti S.Gumay, said, "at this moment, Garuda is processing the purchase of Star Air, an airline deemed to fit the criteria set by Garuda."

In selecting Star Air over Linus Airways, Herry explained that the state-owned Garuda considered the purchase of Star Air as a cleaner purchase, less encumbered with debts and in possession of a route system that can be used by Citilink.

Herry told the press he supports the acquisition of Star Air, providing the purchase can be finalized before June 25, 2009. "Because on June 25th the Airline Operating License (Surat Izin Usaha Penerbangan) of Star Air will be automatically revoked after one year on non-operation," he explained.

The Civil Aviation Department is reportedly poised to finally revoke the operating licenses of 17 long-grounded Indonesian airlines, including the Bali-owned Air Paradise International.

Star Air was established under a license obtained by travel entrepreneur Ale Sugiarto together with PT Tri Pusaka Abadi and PT Habitat Saga Perkasa. Prior to its cessation of services in 2008, Star Air operated four Boeing 737 aircraft flying on routes between Jakarta – Pekanbaru, Jakarta – Balikpapan, Jakarta Medan, Jakarta – Surabaya, and Jakarta-Denpasar-Kupang.

Speaking to Bisnis Indonesia, the Chief Operating Office or Garuda, Emirsyah Satar, admitted that he is in the final process of acquiring one of Indonesia's grounded carriers, but refused to confirm if Star Air was the leading candidate for that purchase. He did explain to the press that whichever airline is finally purchased, it will offer legal, route and other business advantages to Garuda Indonesia.

Air Operating Certificate Soon to Be Revoked

Tri S. Sunoko of the Director General of Air Transportation told Bisnis Indonesia that Star Airs air operators certificate has already been revoked by the government. However, the airline's Operating License (SIUP) remains valid until June 25, 2009.

Another Garuda source confirmed that a deal was nearly done with Star Air who have put forth a lower price for its business than other possible candidates, such as Linus Airways.

Some airline observers are predicting that the new name of the subsidiary of Garuda will become Star Air Citilink, once the acquisition becomes final.
