Garuda Plans to Cover Gap After JAL Cuts Bali Routes

National flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia announced on Monday that it was ready to fill the void after ailing Japan Airlines canceled its routes to Bali this year.

Kiyoshi Tanaka, a JAL representative in Bali, said on Monday that the bankrupt airline’s massive restructuring had prompted it to cut less-profitable routes, including to Bali, which have already showed a decrease in passenger numbers. He said JAL’s daily Tokyo-Denpasar and Osaka-Denpasar would be eliminated by Oct. 1, leaving Garuda the only carrier flying between Japan and the resort island.

Pujobroto, Garuda’s corporate secretary, said on Monday after JAL’s announcement that the Indonesian carrier would raise its Osaka-Denpasar flights from four times a week to five starting in November. Garuda also provides once-daily Denpasar-Tokyo service and three Denpasar-Nagoya flights per week.

“The flights from Denpasar to Japan will use Airbus 330-300 aircraft,” Pujobroto said.

Pujobroto also added that Garuda was planning daily Jakarta-Tokyo service in September.

JAL, Asia’s biggest carrier, declared bankruptcy in January under $6 billion of debt. Poor management and out-of-control costs, as well as unprofitable routes, were all factors leading to one of Japan’s biggest corporate busts.

Its troubles were also compounded by the global financial downturn, which decimated travel demand for its extensive international flight network.

According to the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), the number of visitors from Japan to Bali dropped 22 percent to 65,059 in the first quarter from the year-earlier period.

JAL currently has two daily routes to Bali, Tokyo-Denpasar and JAL 715 Osaka-Denpasar.

Heru Legowo, general manager of PT Angkasa Pura I Ngurah Rai, regretted JAL’s decision to stop the service, which it has flown for 10 years. He said the cancellation made little sense because the 400 passangers arrived on each flight as well as cargo, not to mention the fees JAL paid to the airport management firm.

“With the route closing, we will lose income of Rp 150 million [$16,500] a day,” Heru said.

Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, chairman of Bali’s Tourism Board, said the closure would also cause tourist numbers to drop. Japan accounts for the third-largest number of visitors after Australia and China.

Ronn Nomura, sales and marketing officer of Grand Hyatt Hotel in Bali, said the impact had already begun to be felt.

“With the closure, we expect to lose 50 percent of our guests,” he said.

Indonesia’s national carrier, Garuda Indonesia has launched a VIP service for Executive Class passengers and Garuda Frequent Flyer Platinum members travelling from Singapore.

Passengers will then be transported via a dedicated buggy to the boarding gate in the main terminals when the flight is ready to depart.

“While airlines across the region and beyond are scaling back on their business class products, Garuda Indonesia is actually investing heavily in service enhancements to capture the premium passenger market,” said Iswandi Said, Senior General Manager – Area Asia, Europe & Middle East, Garuda Indonesia. “Business and premium passengers are becoming more sophisticated and discerning in their travel preferences.

Garuda`s route to boost C Sulawesi tourism
Tuesday, May 18, 2010 15:30 WIB | Economic & Business | | Viewed 244 time(s)

Palu, C Sulawesi (ANTARA News) - The opening of national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia`s Palu route as of July 1, 2010 is expected to have a significant effect on tourism in Central Sulawesi province.

"Based on our experience, foreign tourists, especially from Europe, prefer flying Garuda more than other airline companies in Indonesia," Avia Tour director Ary Wowor said here on Tuesday.

He said Garuda aircraft Boeing 737-400 would start flying into Palu from Jakarta with a stopover in Makassar, South Sulawesi, on July 1, 2010.

The Garuda plane will depart from Soekarno-Hatta airport in Jakarta at 6 am local time with a stopover in Makassar, and arrive in Palu at 10.30 am Central Indonesia Standard Time (Wita).

"PT Garuda Indonesia has invited us to discuss the new route, and the company wanted its plane to fly to Palu in the afternoon but we asked to do it in the morning instead, because between 7 am and 2 pm (Wita) there is no flight to and from Mutiara airport in Palu," Ary said, adding that Garuda was looking for its new office in the Central Sulawesi provincial city.

In addition to Palu, Garuda is also ready to reopen its Jakarta-Ambon route with a stopover in Makassar in the first week of June this year.

The general manager of Garuda Indonesia`s Makassar branch office, Hendra Sumarno, said in Ambon recently that the company was preparing the personnel needed to handle the reopened route.

In addition, an office of the national flag carrier would be opened next to the Mutiara Hotel on Jalan Raya Pattimura in Ambon to give the best possible service to Garuda customers in Maluku.

Hendra Sumarno said Garuda flights to Ambon were scheduled to depart from Jakarta`s Soekarno-Hatta airport at 10 a.m. Western Indonesia Time (WIB) with a stopover at Makassar`s Hassanudin airport before flying to Pattimura airport in Ambon, and return to Jakarta at 5 pm East Indonesia Time (WIT).

Garuda`s Jakarta-Ambon flight service would be reopened in conjunction with the addition of 24 new aicraft to its fleet in 2010, namely 23 new generation Boeing 737-800s and one Airbus A330-200.(*)

Garuda axed SGN, any chance it might operate CDK>SIN>SGN again? By axing the route GA also axed their relationship with VN, a SkyTeam member! Maybe VN might launch direct SGN>CDK & HAN>CDK in the future as it joins SkyTeam in 16 days!

Does anyone know why GA axed the route in the first place?

Where is CDK? You mean CGK

I guess the problem is because there is heavy competition from AirAsia and Lion air on CGK-SGN route.

surprisingly, Lion air is still flying CGK-SIN-SGN
