MH has stopped the MEL>CGK>KUL flights and now run them direct MEL>KUL, I think it was because Air Asia entered the market, but with EK entering MEL>KUL they felt pressured and went direct again, it only ran for about 3 months. MH currently runs MEL>KUL x2 Daily.

Garuda goes to the geishas with direct Jakarta-Tokyo flights

Wednesday, 18 August 2010


Travellers will soon be able to travel Garuda Indonesia direct to 'the Land of the Rising Sun' from Jakarta as the airline announced direct flights from Jakarta-Tokyo-Jakarta effective 31 August 2010.

"The new direct flights are part of our route expansion and a response to the growing demands, mostly from businessmen," Garuda spokesman Pujobroto said as quoted by Antara news agency.

Garuda Indonesia President Emirsyah Satar "dedicated" the direct service "to passengers who are travelling on business to and from [Indonesia and Japan]" thanks to the growing trade relations between the two countries.

In a move that will further streamline the travel experience for Garuda Indonesia's business and leisure travellers alike, passengers on the Airbus 330-200 from Japan can benefit from Garuda International's 'Immigration on-Board' which sees 'Visas On Arrival' issued to passengers in flight.
Garuda Indonesia currently flies from Denpasar to Tokyo daily, Nagoya three times a week and to Osaka five times a week.

Garuda promotes Ambon tourism enchantment
Thursday, September 2, 2010 15:28 WIB | Economic & Business

Ambon, Maluku (ANTARA News) - The National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia promotes eastern Indonesian city of Ambon in its cabin magazine of June 2010 edition.

Garuda Ambon branch manager Hendra Sumarno said here on Thursday that Garuda magazine contains photos and data about tourism in the island city of Ambon.

He said the cover of the magazine displays Ambon`s marine tourism enchantment with "Oh, the Beauty of Ambon Manise" on it.

The magazine is made available on every seat of Garuda aircraft of both domestic and overseas destinations.

"Garuda magazine promoting Ambon tourism is bilingual, Indonesian and English, in an effort to facilitate English speaking passengers to know more about Ambon with its hospitable people," Hendra said.

He said the magazine also displays photos of and data of Ambon marine tourism, Waisalaka egg-eating giant eels at Waai village, Amsterdam fort, old mosques and churches, as well as typical Pantai Natsepa fruit salad of Suli village.

"We are part of Ambon tourism component and therefore, since resuming its route to Pattimura airport in June this year Garuda Indonesia has been trying to make local government program in tourism sector here a success," Hendra said.

On June 3, 2010 Garuda reopened its Jakarta-Ambon route with a stopover in Makassar, South Sulawesi.

The Jakarta-Makassar-Ambon route was served with aircraft having a capacity of 14 to 16 business-class seats and 120 economy-class seats.

In cooperation with the Maluku Culture and Tourism Office, Garuda is scheduled to realize Ambon-Amsterdam route by making use of "Family Trip" program on October 17, 2010.

"The most important thing is the public awareness to maintain the natural beauty of Ambon and its supporting facility to make foreign tourists feel at home," Hendra said.

Regional airports gear up for expansion as traffic surges
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 09/03/2010 9:51 AM | Business A | A | A |
This is the second part in a series on problems and opportunities for Indonesian airports.
Businessman Ali Imron said it used to take him at least eight hours to get to Lampung province (overland) from his base in the metropolitan town of Tangerang, Banten province.

However, thanks to reductions in the cost of air travel he has been able to take the plane for this journey since several years ago. Traveling by air is much quicker, so Ali can spend more time tending to his business.

“The same journey takes me only 40 minutes by plane. This saves my time and improves my business productivity,” the busy businessman told The Jakarta Post.

The reduction in Ali’s travel time is also a result of the development of Radin Inten II International Airport, Lampung’s main air gateway. The development project began several years ago, and as result, the airport upgraded its status to officially become an international airport on Dec. 28, 2008.

Radin Inten II has a 2.5-kilometer-long, 45-meter-wide runway that meets international standards. By next year, the government will extend the runway to 3,500 meters long and 60 meters wide.

The expansion of the airport also aims at supporting tourism in the province, as well as improving services for people going on pilgrimages to Mecca.

“Until now pilgrims have had to go to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Banten province to fly to Mecca. The development of Radin Inten II airport will allow haj pilgrims to fly to Mecca directly from Lampung, making the haj pilgrimage journey faster,” Lampung Governor Sjachroedin Z.P. said.

A rapid development of airports has also been seen in other regions. In Makassar, South Sulawesi, the government has extended the runways of Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport to 3.1 kilometers, to accommodate large aircraft such as the Boeing 747, improving accessibility to the city recognized as the gateway eastern Indonesia.

Makassar is the largest city in eastern Indonesia. The extension allows the airport to accommodate up to 143 flights, carrying up to 14,140 passengers, a day.

The government — through state run airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I — has also expanded the capacity of the Makassar airport terminal to 52,000 square meters, allowing it to accommodate a whopping 7 million passengers a year.

The expansion was undertaken to cope with the growing number of passengers using air transportation services, said Kintoron, a spokesman for PT Angkasa Pura I.

“In 2003, there were 2.5 million passengers [using Sultan Hasanuddin airport], but last year this figure doubled to reach 5.1 million passengers,” he told The Jakarta Post.

In Palembang, the government plans next year to expand the capacity of Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II Airport terminal to 34,000 square meters, from 23,000 square meters at present.

In fact, the government had planned to expand the terminal several years ago, and the project has only recently been accelerated on the grounds that the airport will be busy receiving regional athletes set to participate in the 2011 Southeast Asia Games (SEA Games), to be hosted by South Sumatra next year.

The airport, which was built in 2005, could originally accommodate up to 2 million passengers a year. However, after it is expanded, the airport will be able to serve around 4 million passengers a year.

“The expansion project will cost the state Rp 150 billion,” said Yon Sugiyono, the general manager of the Palembang branch of PT Angkasa Pura II. The airport, situated in Sukarame, around 10 kilometers from the heart of Palembang, will be redeveloped so it can accommodate larger aircraft such as the Airbus A330 and Boeing 747.

The government is also working on the construction of a new airport in Deli Serdang regency, to replace the Polonia Airport, near Medan, the capital of North Sumatra. The project, Kuala Namu International Airport, is expected to be completed this year. The new airport, which features a 3,750-meter runway and 33 aircraft parking bays for passenger jets including as the Airbus A330, will be able to accommodate up to 8 million passengers a year.

Many airports, especially those situated outside Java Island are poorly managed. Kusniar, who often flies back and forth between Jakarta and Palu, Central Sulawesi, said she no longer used the toilets at Mutiara airport in Palu, because they were dirty and smelled bad.

“I went to those toilets once, and have never been back,” Kusniar said.

At Hasanuddin airport in Makassar, one traveller complained about signage and banking facilties.

“The airport management should put up more directional signs so passengers can find their baggage more easily. They should also improve public banking facilities, for example by adding more ATMs across the airport,” businessman Andi Tenri Gappa said.

Meanwhile, in Ambon, the capital of Maluku province, people complained about the high cost of public transportation to and from the airport.

“It’s just too expensive,” said Saswati Matakena, an Ambon resident who often flies between Ambon and other cities in Indonesia. For example, renting a car to get from the airport to the heart of the city, only 38 kilometers away, could cost from Rp 150,000 to 200,000 per trip. In fact, there are many taxis operating at the airport — both legal and illegal — but they often refuse to use their meters at the expense of customers, she said.

— Khairul Saleh in Palembang, Apriadi Gunawan in Medan, Oyos Saroso in Bandarlampung, Suherjoko in Semarang, Andi Hajramurni in Makassar, Azis Tunny in Ambon and Ruslan Sangadji in Palu contributed to this report, compiled by The Jakarta Post staff writer A’an Suryana

It will be the first carrier from the country to join an alliance, and it comes after several months of negotitions beyween the carrier and SkyTeam.

Leo van Wijk, chairman of SkyTeam's board, says that, as negotiations are ongoing, he is would not be able to say much about the carrier's potential membership. "We are still in discussions and unable specify a timeframe for Garuda," he adds.

Garuda has been planning to join SkyTeam and have an initial public offering as part of its plans to grow its network and fleet over the next few years.

CGK-MEL-CGK direct will be upgraded to A330-300 for the Northern Winter season but the frequency will be reduced to only 2x per week. The DPS-MEL-DPS will remain unchanged at 4x per week.

Instead, CGK-SYD-CGK will go daily as of Dec 20, 2010 and will be continued to be served by A330-200. Garuda is expected to get additoinal A330-200 before the year end and another one sometimes early 2011.

The latest news is that B777-300ER will come before the end of March of 2011.
