lion air is NOT a budget airline since travellers are getting food and drink on board without paying a fee or some extra...They don't act and perform like Easyjet, Ryanair or AirAsia
Wings Air, a subdiary of Lion Air, is a regional airliner...the tickets are cheap, they still use a lot of old planes (md 80's and 90's, however they've received some new atr 72...) but they don't act and perform as a budget airliner as well...however, you, as traveller, could say that they are a budget airliner since they don't give meals and drinks all flights...

lion and wings are not providing food and drinks for free in the economy class, and for the worst of it, they don't even sell it. there's simply no food and drinks at all in most of their flights.
they often called themselves as hybrid airlines. I don't know what's the real meaning of this hybrid airlines. maybe because they are indeed budget airlines but on the other hand they have business class seats in their 739 ERs, and they also have a nice executive lounge at CGK for C class passengers or lion passport holders.

Lion Air is similar to Virgin Blue, budget airlines but they offer great service, it should be classified as low-fares airline

Great service?? They have a brand new plane and sometimes their price are good, other than that I found it really hard to find good things about Lion Air.

EU cities to be added in GA's routes

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - After opening flights to Amsterdam, Holland, on June 1, 2010, PT Garuda Indonesia planned reopen other four routes to Europe in 2012.

"Not later than in 2012 Garuda will be flying to London, Frankfurt, Rome and Paris," Minister of State Enterprises Mustafa Abubakar said after a hearing with House’s Commission VI in Jakarta Monday.

Garuda has also signed a cooperation agreement with the producer of Airbus, and with a subsidiary Garuda Maintenance Facility (GMF). Garuda Indonesia has been offered to buy an 800-seat AirBus 380, which would be very useful to fly haj pilgrims to the holy land, he said.

Mustafa said however, the offer was still being considered comprehensively.

Airbus offered GA A380? Is the load to Haj or Umroh warrants such increase in capacity?

Like to think that A350XWB or 777 type of plane is better suit the needs of Garuda.

As the manufacturer of the plane, I'm sure Airbus is obliged to offer any airline the A380.

Plus, I think it's amazing that Southeast Asia has a handful of A380 operators, including SQ, MH, TG and VN. Not bad compared to the EU for example, which the A380 only has AF, BA and LH as customers.

With a touch down in Amsterdam, Garuda enters a new era
Primastuti Handayani, The Jakarta Post, Amsterdam

With a six-year flying ban to Europe finally lifted, national carrier Garuda Indonesia relaunched its Jakarta to Amsterdam direct service this week, inviting government officials, legislators, businesspeople and journalists on the voyage that marked the beginning of a new era for the airline.

For captain pilot Ari Sapari, who flow the GA088 Jakarta to Amsterdam flight on June 1, the event was a proud moment. “It brought back memories of when I flew Garuda before we stopped the operation six years ago,” he said.

When the Airbus A330-200 touched down at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, the passengers on board applauded the flight deck for a smooth landing. Excitement turned to outright delight when two fire trucks from the local fire brigade began showering the aircraft with water — a ritual at the airport when an airline makes its maiden arrival there.

Ari, an executive vice president for operations at Garuda and a presidential pilot, said he was very proud of having been given the opportunity to pilot the maiden flight marking Garuda’s return to Europe. Garuda stopped flying to Europe in late 2004 to cut costs.

The carrier was then banned three years later from flying to Europe after the European Union imposed a flight ban on Indonesian airlines following a string of air accidents and heightened security measures.

For Wiyati, an Indonesian living in the small town of Schellinkhout and the owner of Waq travel agency, Garuda’s return means she now has more options to offer clients.

“We usually fly our guests to Indonesia using Singapore Airlines and Emirates but now we have Garuda so we can offer them an alternative. The air fare [of Garuda] is cheaper,” Wiyati said.

Garuda prices a Jakarta-Amsterdam round trip ticket at US$1,450. Currently, as part of a promotion for new customers, Garuda is offering a buy-one-get-one free policy.

Garuda president and chief executive officer Emirsyah Satar said he was upbeat the new route would receive a warm welcome in Europe, adding that plans were already in place to add new routes to other cities, including Frankfurt, London, Paris and Rome.

After struggling with a $900 million debt five years ago, Garuda has gradually turned around its finances and returned to profit.

Part of its recent success can be contributed to its recently launched “Quantum Leap” strategy that will increase the number of its aircraft to 116 in 2014, and sets a target of 27.6 million passengers in 2014 from 10.3 million in 2008. The airline expects to increased operating revenue to Rp 57.9 trillion in 2014 from Rp 18.1 trillion in 2008.

Emirsyah promised that passengers would benefit from improved service on flights, thanks to an overhaul of its flight service under the slogan “Garuda Experience”.

“It is an experience that as soon as passengers board the aircraft they can feel that they are in Indonesia through our hospitality and services,” he said.

And Garuda has gone the extra mile to realize a superior service, he said. Upon entering the aircraft, passengers are welcomed by flight attendants wearing a new kebaya-inspired uniform consisting of a blouse and a batik long skirt designed by Josephine “Obin” Komara, brandishing colors orange, turquoise and blue.

However, Garuda has some work to do improve passenger comfort. The newly upholstered seats on the aircraft could not recline fully — a complaint voiced by several passengers. However, a 25-movie individual entertainment system displayed on mini screens embedded in the backs of the seats’ headrests goes some way to distract passengers from the frustratingly restrictive seats.

Luckily, Garuda food paints a favorable impression of Indonesian cuisine. In collaboration with culinary expert William Wongso, Garuda offers nasi kuning (yellow rice with side dishes) for dinner and nasi goreng (fried rice) for breakfast. There is also an international menu on flights leaving the country from Jakarta.

As part of an effort to lure passengers from Europe, the government collaborated with Garuda to allow passengers to receive on-arrival visas while in the air.

However, there are still many t’s to be crossed and i’s to be dotted before Garuda can truly claim to be able to compete with the world’s major carriers.

Since recently receiving a four-star rating from Skytrax, a United Kingdom-based research company that specializes in commercial airlines, Garuda has built a cooperation with KLM and is mulling joining the Skyteam airline alliance.

However, Emirsyah said, improvements should not only come from Garuda’s side. He said it was no less important for Indonesia’s international airports to improve their facilities and services.

Garuda to install IT facilities in aircraft in 2011
Thursday, June 17, 2010 04:21 WIB | Economic & Business

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - PT Garuda Indonesia confirmed on Wednesday that it would equip its aircraft with in-flight information technology facilities in 2011 to improve its service to passengers.

"We will do it next year. Passengers can then communicate through an internet service and also send short text messages," its president director, Emirsyah Satar, said after signing a memorandum of understanding on T-Cash ticket payment with Telkomsel here on Wednesday.

He said all new Garuda planes would be equipped with mobile technology and later all Garuda planes will also be given the capability.

He said the technology will allow passengers to communicate using the short text message service (SMS) and operate laptops on board aircraft.

"The technology has been developed abroad and does not disrupt the air navigation system. It will not include phone calls," he said.

Regarding the regulation put in Law Number 1 of 2009 that bans passengers from using telecommunication facilities while aboard a plane, Emirsyah said he would discuss the matter with the government.

"Later we will discuss it with the ministry of transportation," he said.

On the cooperation with Telkomsel he said that it would make it easier for would-be passengers to buy ickets or make Garuda seat reservations by phone.

"Telkomsel customers totalling 86 millions will benefit from the cooperation," he said.

Telkomsel president director Sarwoto Atmosutarno said he would exploit T-Cash facility to make it easier for Telkomsel customers to buy Garuda tickets.

T-Cash is one of the facilities Telkomsel is developing along with mobile payment and mobile advertising, he said.

Regarding the House of Representatives` (DPR) wish for reduction in the hajj flight cost, Emirsyah said Garuda would accept whatever the government and the DPR would decide.

He said although it might reduce the company`s margin, service to hajj passengers would not decline.

"We will give the best possible service to them. What is important is the flight is smooth and Garuda does not lose," he said.

He said the hajj flight cost was determined by the world fuel price.

"If the contract with the religious affairs ministry has been signed and at the time the hajj pilgrimage season begins, the fuel price rises, that will be our risk," he said. (*)
