23 July 2009
PRESIDENT SUSILO BAMBANG YUDHOYONO OFFICIALLY OPENS NEW HEAD OFFICE AND THE UNVEILING OF NEW GARUDA INDONESIA CONCEPT OF SERVICE
Category: Press Release (157 view)

· The new building is located within the are Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Cengkareng

· The new concept in service includes brand new aircraft equipped with modernized interior and exterior, state-of-the-art entertainment and the uniquely "Garuda Indonesia Experience (Indonesian Hospitality)"

On Thursday, 23 July 2009, the President of the Republic of Indonesia Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono officially opened the new "Garuda Indonesia Management Building" located in an area known as the "Garuda Indonesia City Center", at the Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Cengkareng.

The occasion was also marked by the official launching of the new Garuda Indonesia "Corporate Identity Brand Refresh" and two brand new aircraft, the Airbus A330-200 and Boeing B-737-800NG (Next Generation) fitted up with sophisticated audio & video entertainment system, and sporting a modernized interior and exterior that reflect the "corporate identity brand refresh" image.

Guests at the opening ceremony included several ministers of Kabinet Indonesia Bersatu, among them Coordinating Minister of Economy, Sri Mulyani, Minister of Transportation, Jusman Syafii Djamal, Minister of State-owned Enterprise, Sofyan Djalil, Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik, Head of the Indonesian Police as well as members of the diplomatic corps and other distinguished guests.

Measuring approximately 17,000 sqm, the four-storied Garuda Indonesia Management Building is built on a five hectare piece of land. The elegant and modern design of the building continues in inside where the concept of efficiency is applied in the use of an I-phone telecommunications network, which can reduce overhead expenses and simplify business processes towards an efficient, paperless environment.

The modern structure houses Garuda Indonesia's management and around 1000 employees from various units. The relocation of the head office from the city center to the Soekarno-Hatta Airport already shows positive results which can be narrowed down to a more efficient and effective performance in the airline's operations.

Part of the new service concept also include the range of sophisticated in-flight entertainment (IFE) system available on the new Airbus A330-200 and B-737-800NG, such as the "audio & video on demand (avod)" placed on each seat that offer passengers a choice of 25 in-flight movies, 10 TV programs, a selection of 35 music albums and 25 interactive video games. The business class on the A-330-200 is also fitted with 180° reclining seats that can be turned into flat beds. These facilities are a precedent for Garuda Indonesia's future fleet.

Garuda Indonesia also introduces a refreshing concept in service, the "Garuda Indonesia
Experience", which combines warm Indonesian Hospitality with quality service that emphasizes on safety and comfort.

The airline's ongoing improvements also revealed a new corporate identity brand refresh. The concept behind the change was inspired by "nature's wing" or a reflection of a bird's wing on water and the shape of flower petals commonly found in Indonesia. The spirit of the newly refreshed corporate identity still maintains the two main elements of the old logo, the symbol (bird) and the typography (font). Compared to the cool natural colors (blue, green and aqua) of the old logo, the new refreshed brand displays a wider spectrum of colors and a modern typeface that complements the bird symbol. The choice of dark grey for the font color bridges the transition to the new hues of brown, red and orange that appears in the interior of the new Garuda Indonesia aircraft. The Garuda Indonesia's refreshed corporate identity and its system was designed by Landor Associates, a branding consultancy that also designed the original identity in 1985.


Despite facing adverse conditions, such as the global financial crisis, the Company has continued to move forward and achieved maximum results. Having its business transformation program initiated in 2005 on track, Garuda Indonesia gradually scaled down losses from Rp. 811 bilIion in 2004, to Rp. 688 billion in 2005, and further dropping to Rp. 197 billion in the following year. In 2007, a successful turnaround recorded a profit of Rp. 60 billion. By 2008, the numbers multiplied significantly, reaching a dizzying Rp. 669 billion in net profit.

In anticipation of an increasingly competitive business environment, Garuda Indonesia has
laid down effective strategies for corporate development until the year 2014, called the "Quantum Leap". Several of the steps contained in the "Quantum Leap" program are fleet rejuvenation and enhancement, from 56 aircraft till 116 aircraft; increased flight frequency per week from 1700 till 3000 flights; and increased flight routes. Throughout 2009, the airline plans to establish 18 new routes of which 10 have already been realized.

To help expand its business, Garuda Indonesia purchased 50 Boeing 737-800NGs scheduled to arrive in mid July 2009, and 10 Boeing 777-300ERs which will join the airline's existing fleet in 2011. Meanwhile, new fleet additions, comprising 4 Airbus A330-200s, are expected to arrive in mid 2009 from the manufacturing plant in Toulouse, France.

You know what? This thread would make sense if Lion Air was actually Asia's fastest growing airline...

Pretty planes don't maketh an airline, the B747-400s are just there sitting pretty, with long-haul flights being postponed for the third or fourth time already.

I'm unimpressed with Lion Air.

Garuda to expand after EU lifts safety blacklist ban
July 24, 2009

Indonesian national airline Garuda announced plans yesterday for an aggressive expansion after it was removed from a European Union aviation safety blacklist.

The expansion, labelled "Quantum Leap," will within five years see the airline nearly double its number of aircraft and increase by half its destinations, chief executive officer Emirsyah Satar said.

"Garuda Indonesia's fleet, which now consists of 62 aircraft, will grow to 116 aircraft by 2014," he said.

He said the airline was adding Boeing 777s, 737s and Airbus A330-200s, having already taken delivery of three new aircraft.

It plans to boost passenger numbers to 27.6 million a year in the same period, up from 10.1 million currently, by increasing its domestic and international destinations from 41 to 62, he said.

"Although the external situation is less supportive because of the global financial crisis and increasing competition, Garuda will continue its development programmes prudently."

"We target to increase our net profit from 669 billion rupiah (A$82.2 million) in 2008 to 3.7 trillion in 2014," Satar said.

Satar did not specify the planned new destinations. The company earlier said it planned to reopen its flights to the Netherlands next year, as well as possible later routes to Frankfurt and London.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said that Garuda was "on track" in its effort to improve its fleet, service, security and safety.

"The flight ban for Indonesian airlines to fly to Europe has been lifted," he said.

"I thank everyone who has fulfilled all the necessary steps so they can see that our system, operation and regulation are better, more credible and in line with international standards."

Garuda was one of four Indonesian airlines to have EU flight bans lifted earlier this month by the EU Commission, the bloc's executive arm, citing "significant improvements" in safety.

All Indonesia-registered aircraft were banned from flying to the EU in June 2007 after a string of deadly crashes, including the March 2007 crash-landing of a Garuda Boeing 737 that killed 21 people.

Despite its poor safety record and the global economic downturn which has savaged the airline industry, Garuda posted a 10-fold increase in profits last year thanks to increased revenue and passenger numbers.

The company's net profit for 2008 surged to about 670 billion rupiah from 60 billion rupiah the year before.

From 2007 until 2012, 144 Boeing 737-900ERs will be delivered from the total 178 aircraft ordered to strengthen Lion Air's fleet. The 737-900ER is the newest member of Next Generation 737 family with the most advanced single-aisle commercial aircraft in the world. All other aircraft, including the Boeing 737 Classics family and the McDonnell Douglas/Boeing MD-80 family, are being phased out to give space for their new aircraft. There is a plan to buy the Airbus A320-200 aircraft as well.

The Permit and Security clearance for Lion air route to Jeddah has not been cleared yet, this maybe due of Saudi Arabian government protectionism into their lucrative route for SV (Saudi arabia)

Currently Batavia will also looking to launch Jakarta - Jeddah route using Airbus A330-200...so, many non-saudi arabia airlines are going to this favourite routes...(this route serves for workers/Umrah or religious traveller)

cheers

Batavia Air plans Jakarta-Penang direct flights

Wednesday July 22, 2009

JAKARTA-based airline, Batavia Air, plans to introduce direct flights between the Indonesian capital and Penang this September.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri said details have yet to be finalised and the company was still in talks with Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014).

"Once realised, the move is set to benefit Penang's tourism landscape in particular, and Malaysia in general," he told reporters after a briefing session with MAHB at the Penang International Airport in Bayan Lepas, Penang, yesterday.

Batavia Air is set to be the third low-cost carrier to have direct flights to Penang this year.

Two other carriers, Jetstar and Tiger Airways, have separately introduced direct flights between Singapore and Penang respectively.

So far, at least 15 airlines are operating at the airport here.

Meanwhile, Abdul Rahim said the first phase of the airport expansion, at a cost of RM250 million and expected to be completed by 2010, would be able to accommodate more passengers.

The airport aims to handle at least 15 million passengers a year from 2016 when the second phase of the airport expansion is done.

The expansion works include upgrading the passenger terminal, constructing a new multi-storey carpark and the upgrading of security system.

Last year, the airport handled 3.4 million passengers, 193,000 metric tonnes of cargoes and 39,798 flights

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-Jeddah flight route.

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

Garuda Indonesia Continues Transformation

The launch of the “Nature’s Wing” livery on Garuda Indonesia’s new Airbus A330-200 and Boeing 737-800NG (Next Generation) aircraft coincided with the opening of its new headquarters building near Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport on Thursday by Indonesia’s President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Garuda managed to report a net profit of IDR669 billion (US$65.2 million) in 2008, despite negative press, perceptions and the severe economic conditions affecting the global airline industry.

Garuda Indonesia CEO, Emirsyah Satar, said, “We have made enormous progress over the last four years, which is starting to show through in our financial results, but this is only the beginning. The introduction of our new fleet, new product, a corporate identity brand refresh and a new service concept, the ‘Garuda Indonesia Experience’, marks the next stage in the transformation of Garuda Indonesia as we move towards our vision of becoming one of the most successful and profitable airlines in Asia.”

The introduction of the A330-200s and Boeing 737-800NGs is part of a plan to more than double the Garuda Indonesia fleet to 116 aircraft over the next five years, based primarily on the Boeing 737-800NG on short and medium-range services and the A330-200 for medium and long-haul routes.

The airline will also introduce 10 Boeing 777-300ERs on new ultra long-range flights starting in 2011 as its international network expands. The number of international departures will increase by more than 300% to 1,222 per week by 2014.

The Boeing 737-800NGs and A330-200s both feature Garuda Indonesia’s new signature interior, with individual touch-screen LCD TVs throughout Executive and Economy Classes with Video on Demand (VOD) entertainment systems offering 25 feature films and 250 audio tracks. The A330-200s will also feature full lie-flat beds in Executive Class with 74-inch seat pitch.

Agus Priyanto, Executive Vice President, Commercial, Garuda Indonesia, said, “From August onwards, we will be using our new A330-200s to open nonstop services from Jakarta-Sydney and Jakarta-Melbourne, which will offer travellers from Australia an alternative gateway to Asia. We will also launch nonstop flights from Jakarta-Tokyo in October. In the longer-term, we’re planning to return to Europe next year. Our target is to achieve a five-star Skytrax rating by 2014.”

Garuda Indonesia received its IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification in May 2008, recognising that the airline is fully compliant with global “best-practice” standards for flight operations, aircraft maintenance and safety management systems.

Erm. I don't get Wings Air too.

Lion Air had plan to focus on regional international flights but has since indicated that it's strategy is to focus on domestic routes which means there is now less use for the 100 over B737-900ER it has on order.

So what of Wings Air now? A subsidiary that flies brand-old jets?

They will expand for regional international flights but not at this moment. Second, Wings airlines will have brand new ATR in their fleet. Their MD-90s will eventually retire.

Garuda Indonesia airline has unveiled a new corporate identity and logo.

In a branding initiative developed by brand consultancy Landor Associates, the theme revolves around on the idea of ‘Nature’s Wing’. The airline's outdated logo has been replaced with a more modern one, refining its bird symbol. The accompanying visual system has been refreshed and is built around a new design element.

Landor designed the previous logo twenty-seven years ago. The new image aims to ‘capture the spirit of Indonesian hospitality’ and professionalism.

“Garuda is committed to respecting nature while celebrating the beauty of their national assets and rich Indonesian culture,” said Andy Keene, creative director at Landor Associates.

“The airline is taking this opportunity to upgrade its brand into a world-class airline and align with consumers on a personal level. Fifty aircrafts are added and new flight routes are in service to bring the airline up a notch, even when the industry is not as its best during the economic downturn,” he said.

Developed by Dentsu Strat, consumer advertisements will run across print, cable television and cinema. ICON is responsible for the public relations for the airline’s Southeast Asian and South Pacific business.



The ad for the newly delivered A330-200




There is also a video see http://www.brandrepublic.asia/Media/...ndonesia/36427.

This video explains a lot. Now I can understand the logo and the philosophy behind it, Nature's Wing.
In the last ten seconds of the video a stewardess making a bowing gesture is apparently wearing the new green uniform, a stylished kebaya.

Does Lion Air still have any plans for an operation within Australia?

They had agreed to enter a partnership with SkyAirWorld to operate Lion Air Australia. SkyAirWorld has since gone bankrupt and many of its assetts re-possessed.

Under Australian law, Lion Air would not need any Australian ownership for a domestic subsidiary (which is why Tiger Airways is able to have operation here). However, Tiger Airways Australia can not operate international flights - and Lion Air subsidiary will also be restricted in the same way.

Garuda aiming higher again: Indonesian carrier in dramatic makeover


(Bangkok Post (Thailand) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Jul. 27--JAKARTA -- Garuda Indonesia, whose wings were partly clipped by a tainted safety image and so-so product and service offerings, is set to soar again in a bold transformation that it aims to carry it into the elite class among Asian airlines.

The state-owned flag carrier last Thursday marked a new chapter in its changeover that started in late 2005 by unveiling a new fleet, upgraded inflight products and a fresh corporate identity.

This event symbolising the rejuvenation of the 60-year-old carrier at Soekarno-Hatta Airport was marked by the presence of Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

The "Nature's Wing" livery on Garuda's new Airbus A330-200 and Boeing 737-800NG jetliners was unveiled days after the European Union removed Garuda and three other Indonesian carriers from its list of airlines banned from flying into Europe.

The EU blacklisted all Indonesia-registered carriers two years after accidents including a Mandala Airlines crash in September 2005, which killed 149, and an Adamair crash in January 2007, which caused 102 fatalities. Garuda itself last suffered a fatal accident in March 2007, when a plane crashed on landing in Yogyakarta, killing 21.

Thursday's celebration was evidence of visible progress in the "Quantum Leap" strategy that envisages Garuda joining the world's best airlines, alongside players such as Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific, by 2014.

The multi-stage transformation began with survival mode, then consolidation, upgrading operations, products and services, debt restructuring, growth and privatisation.

The Airbus A330-200s and Boeing 737-800NGs are part of a plan to more than double the fleet to 116 aircraft from 62 over the next five years, with the Boeings serving short- and medium-range services and the A330-200s on medium and long-haul routes.

It will also introduce 10 Boeing 777-300ERs on new ultra long-range flights in 2011 as its international network expands. The number of international departures will increase by more than 300 percent to 1,222 per week by 2014.

"What we're doing today is in line what we have planned in late 2005 and we've been consistent with our strategy," said Garuda chief executive Emirsyah Satar.

The transformation has borne fruit. The carrier posted a net profit of 669 billion rupiah (US$65.2 million) in 2008, ten times the amount of a year earlier, and a sharp reversal from losses in 2006 and 2005.

Despite the severe economic conditions affecting the global airline industry, Garuda moved into the black last year due largely to its streamlined operation and domestic traffic driven by robust economic growth in Indonesia.

Indonesia has been a few countries in the world that continues to grow, with predicted GDP expansion of more than 4 percent this year.

Garuda's net profit in the first four months of this year was 326.1 billion rupiah, a 515 percent increase year-on-year.

Garuda's balance sheet has also been enhanced through restructuring of debts that amounted to US$670 million at the end of 2008. It struck an agreement with its major creditors under the European Credit Agency (ECA), to which Garuda owes US$450 million.

The airline aims to increase the number of passengers to 27.6 million in 2014 from 10.1 million next year through network expansion and increased capacity.

With the EU ban lifted, Garuda aims to resume flights to Europe next year, starting with Amsterdam, which it suspended in 2004 for commercial reasons, said Agus Priyanto, executive vice-president for commercial affairs.

That would be followed by flights to Frankfurt and London in 2011, and to Los Angeles, its only planned destination in North America, in 2012.

Garuda's move to increase its international profile and tap the opportunities has already started. Throughout 2009, it plans to establish 18 new routes.

From next month, Garuda will be using its new A330-200s to open nonstop services on the Jakarta-Sydney and Jakarta-Melbourne routes, offering travellers from Australia an alternative gateway to Asia. It will also launch nonstop flights from Jakarta to Tokyo in October.

Garuda chief executive Emirsyah said the airline held no grudge against the EU for the flight ban, even though the carrier's safety credentials have improved and been recognised by others.

"It's the past," he said, saying the issue of EU ban was not about Garuda but about Indonesian aviation regulations that did not meet international standards.

The airline's IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification in May 2008 recognised that Garuda was fully compliant with global best-practice standards for flight operations, aircraft maintenance and safety management.

The International Air Transport Association requires all its members to pass regular IOSA checks, which are conducted by independent auditors.

Mr Emirsyah made clear that Garuda stopped flying to Europe several years ago before that EU ban due to commercial reasons.

Meanwhile, the global recession has prompted the airline to rescheduled its initial public offering to mid-2010 from this year, he added.

Garuda was expected to offer 30 percent of its shares in the IPO to raise 4.2 trillion rupiah, essentially to pay debts and fund its new aircraft.
