Travellers were genuinely impressed by the “new” Garuda. These statements sum up the gist of many comments: “Overall Garuda is improving” and “Garuda has changed into a better airline”.

The carrier also operates a large domestic network and many of the comments were based on very short flights. Yet they did not disappoint: "Short 50 minutes flight … managed to deliver prompt and courteous service.”

The friendliness and service-minded attitude of cabin staff received repeated mention.

The airline appears to be rebuilding itself on a firm foundation. It’s fleet is quite new and there is a sizeable order for more equipment. The challenge will come in maintaining its excellent start as it grows and becomes a more common inclusion in traveller itineraries.

The result based on points are:
1. Garuda Indonesia - 8.48
2. Bangkok Airways - 8.4
3. Singapore Airlines - 7.68
4. Thai Airways - 7.32
5. Cathay Pacific - 7.12
6. Malaysia Airlines - 7

Indonesian Government Reveals Overhaul for Air Industry

Camelia Pasandaran | October 14, 2010

Jakarta. The government has announced plans to overhaul the air transportation sector in an effort to address the country’s patchy record for flight safety and aviation infrastructure.

Vice President Boediono on Thursday told a coordination meeting on transportation safety, which brought together several ministers and heads of related institutions, that the revamp was of utmost importance to address public concerns about the aviation sector, which has been dogged in recent years by safety issues and crashes.

“We have to provide a transparent response and all our decisions should be accessible to the public,” Boediono said. “Let us start by looking for concrete steps, and not lofty ones, to improve transportation safety.”

Yopie Hidayat, a spokesman for Boediono, said the meeting produced an eight-point resolution to improve air safety and address overcrowding at airports.

The top priority, he said, is to put the National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) directly under the president.

The committee is currently under the Ministry of Transportation.

“The meeting decided the KNKT should be responsible to the president to strengthen its independence, empower it and shed its dependency on the Transportation Ministry, which it should be supervising,” he said.

Yopie said there would be increased supervision of the implementation of the KNKT’s recommendations, and tougher sanctions for those found in breach of transportation regulations.

All pending regulations on flight safety should also be finalized by the end of the year, he said, adding that the Directorate General for Air Transportation would be asked to fast-track the process.

The meeting also agreed that key airports across the country, including Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport, should be expanded.

The expansion program, Yopie said, would be funded from the state budget, but public-private partnership schemes would also be considered.

He said Soekarno-Hatta, which was built to handle 22 million passengers a year, handled 34 million passengers in 2009 and an estimated 40 million passengers were expected to pass through the airport this year.

Yopie said a new runway and two new terminals were planned for Soekarno-Hatta, with the work expected to be finished by 2013.


He said some commercial traffic would be diverted to Halim Perdanakusuma air base in East Jakarta “as a temporary solution” while Soekarno-Hatta was being expanded.

An interministerial team jointly led by the ministries of transportation and state-owned enterprises will be set up to oversee the expansion plans.

Another decision reached was to accelerate the restructuring and separation of airports’ navigation and operational functions.

Yopie said a new public corporation would be formed to handle the country’s navigation and air traffic control systems.

The Coordinating Ministry for the Economy is currently completing the preparations for the new enterprise, he added.

Airlines, Yopie said, would also be encouraged to employ online ticketing systems, which are currently not mandatory.

“There is a need for regulation on this,” he said.

“The problem is that in the regions, manual transactions are still necessary, especially in small towns. The Directorate General for Air Transportation will discuss this with the airlines and look into such a scheme, including for cargo.”

Garuda Indonesia Flies Hajj Pilgrims Today
Tuesday, 12 October 2010

On Tuesday, 11th Oktober 2010, Garuda Indonesia starting to fly the first flight Hajj from Jakarta and four other stations, namely Solo, Surabaya, Padang and Palembang. Earlier on Monday, 11 October 2010, Garuda Indonesia carried hajj pilgrims from Medan, Banjarmasin, Aceh and Makassar. The first flight group from Balikpapan is scheduled to fly out on October 13, 2010.

Hajj operations will extend from October 11 until November 10, 2010 (Phase I - Departure) and November 21 until December 20, 2010 for Phase II - Arrival. For the Jakarta and Surabaya stations, direct flights to Madinah are provided during Phase I - Departure starting October 11 until October 26, 2010, while direct flights from Madinah on the return stage will commence on December 6 until December 21, 2010.

In the current 2010/1431 H hajj season, Garuda Indonesia plans to transport 119.622 pilgrims from Indonesia, or an increase by 2.833 pilgrims from the total of 116.789 pilgrims transported in the previous year. The total of 119.622 pilgrims are assigned into 306 flight groups departing from ten stations, namely: Banda Aceh: from 3.984 pilgrims increased to 4.157 pilgrims (in 13 flight groups, previously 12 flight groups); Padang: from 7.523 pilgrims increased to 7.704 pilgrims (in 22 flight groups, previously 21 flight groups); Palembang: from 7.378 pilgrims increased to 7.548 pilgrims (in 21 flight groups); Jakarta: from 22.152 pilgrims increased to 23.062 pilgrims (in 49 flight groups); Solo: from 33.382 pilgrims increased to 33.492 pilgrims (in 88 flight groups); Surabaya: 8.645 pilgrims (in 19 flight groups); Banjarmasin: from 5.046 pilgrims increased to 5.380 pilgrims (in 16 flight groups, previously 15 flight groups); Balikpapan: from 5.352 pilgrims increased to 5.624 pilgrims (in 16 flight groups, previously 15 flight groups); Makassar: from 14.998 pilgrims increased to 15.680 pilgrims (in 44 flight groups, previously 42 flight groups); and Medan: from 8.328 pilgrims increased to 8.330 pilgrims (in 19 flight groups, previously 18 flight groups).

During the hajj season, Garuda Indonesia will operate fifteen wide body aircraft, consisting of four B-747s, one B-767, six A330-300s, and four A330-200s. These are relatively new aircraft; one was even produced in 2009. The bidding process for the aircraft procurement was carried out in open and transparent manner, and announced in various local and international media.

Garuda Indonesia has also recruited 814 cabin crew members of which 725 (90%) of them were recruited from the station cities. The objective of recruitment from these regions was to anticipate any language barriers that may arise between passengers and crew, as part of the airline's service to its customers.

To ensure maximum flight safety and security, Garuda Indonesia appeals to all pilgrims to avoid carrying dangerous goods on board the aircraft, such as oil stove, LPG, gas lighter, knife, machete, scissors, hairspray or perfume in high pressure spray cans. Batteries must also be removed from electronic goods. Garuda Indonesia would also like to remind pilgrims not to accept or bring any articles or goods entrusted by another into aircraft. This is to prevent unwanted incidents and irresponsible actions that may threaten flight safety and security by certain individuals.

In terms of baggage allowance, pilgrims must comply with regulations issued by the Department of Religious Affairs of the Republic Indonesia and Garuda Indonesia. The allowed baggage weight must not exceed 32 kg during flights to Jeddah and Madinah or on the return flight to Indonesia. Baggage allowance consists of one suitcase, one cabin bag and passport holder. Each pilgrim will receive five liters of zamzam water from Garuda Indonesia at each debarkation station in Indonesia.

Garuda Flying back to USA

Any news or ideas about Garuda flying back to LAX? Now that they are joining up with SkyTeam, it might make sense. Seems odd that South East Asia's biggest country has no direct air service to the States.(?)

Indonesia is still under Cat II, so it's unlikely unless the FAA lifts restrictions. VN is more likely to see a resumption of service to the United States than GA.

Indonesian Airlines Ready to Soar, Except for Lack of Pilots

Faisal Maliki Baskoro | October 22, 2010




Jakarta. A global pilot shortage is hampering the growth plans of Indonesia’s major airlines, including flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, as the sector gears up to meet surging demand.

The pilot shortage, which is acute in Asia where growth is strong, is forcing domestic carriers to pay higher salaries and already leaving some new planes idle.

Garuda’s finance director, Elisa Lumbantoruan, said the airline was struggling to find enough pilots to fly new routes and to add flights to existing routes.

He said it needed to double the number of its pilots — from 600 to 1,200 — by 2014 to match the company’s planned expansion.

“This shortage of pilots has impacted our cost structure and expansion this year,” Elisa said.

“It’s hard for us to open new routes or fly more routes because we’re lacking pilots. It is unlikely for us to achieve our target this year.”

Stefanus Gerardus, chairman of the Garuda Indonesia Pilot Association, said the airline currently needed more than 200 pilots to fly the new planes being delivered this year.

“Garuda is bringing in 24 new airplanes this year, and most of them are just left in the hangar because there is a shortage of pilots to fly them,” he said.

The International Civil Aviation Organization has forecast that the world’s airlines will need to hire an average of about 50,000 new pilots a year through 2030 as carriers expand their routes, while the existing annual training capacity is only about 47,000, leaving carriers scrambling to compete to hire qualified, experienced pilots.

The shortage is worst in Asia, which has the fastest-growing aviation markets.

The region’s three biggest carriers — Cathay Pacific Airways, Qantas Airways, and Emirates Airline — are awaiting delivery of about 400 planes, according to Bloomberg.

Indonesia is also expected to see strong growth in the aviation sector, with the number of passengers forecast to rise from 45 million this year to 60 million in 2014.

In addition to Garuda’s expansion plans, Lion Air is planning to increase its fleet from 64 planes to 174 by 2014.

Sriwijaya Air earlier this month unveiled an ambitious plan to purchase 10 new Boeing 737s and 60 smaller aircraft to be delivered beginning in 2015.


Tengku Burhanuddin, secretary general of the Indonesia National Air Carriers Association (Inaca), said Indonesia needed about 2,000 additional pilots by 2014, when the Asean open-skies policy takes effect.

“Procuring pilots can’t be done overnight. It takes time and money to produce a good, experienced pilot to replace retired pilots, let alone to match the growth of the aviation sector,” he said.

Aviation sector analyst Dudi Sudibyo said domestic airlines were now more diligent in ensuring their pilots were not overworked. “Pilots were overworked but this is a thing of the past,” he said.

“Airlines are more careful with their pilots’ flying hours because a single accident can send the whole company into bankruptcy.”

Bambang Ervan, spokesman of the Transportation Ministry, said pilots were only allowed to fly up to nine hours per day, or 21 hours per week and 50 hours a month.

He said the ministry conducted routine checks of pilots’ logbooks every six months.

So far this year, he added, the ministry had yet to receive a single report on an airline overworking its pilots.

“Any violations will result in sanctions, starting from a warning up to revoking licenses for the pilot and/or the airline,” he said.

Dudi said local airlines were now forced to compete for pilots with international carriers that lured Indonesian pilots away with higher salaries — often double what domestic carriers can pay.

This, in turn, forces domestic carriers to hire foreign pilots and local pilots at higher salaries.

“The problem is there’s a salary war in the sector,” he said. “Most of our pilots are flocking to foreign airline companies, lured by more lucrative salaries and incentives.”

This is good news for Nico Irawan, a new co-pilot at Sriwijaya Air, who said it was easy to find a job.

“I got the job just days after I got my license to fly,” said Nico, who completed 180 flight hours for a license from the Australia National Airline College.

Lion Air plans flights to India, China, Australia
The Jakarta Post | Tue, 10/05/2010 1:27 PM | Business

JAKARTA: Private airline PT Lion Air plans to open seven new international routes next year following the delivery
of its new Boeing 737-900 ERs this year. “With the new aircraft, we will be able to expand our flight services
both at home and abroad,” Lion Air general affairs manager Edward Sirait said in Jakarta on Monday.

As of next year, the airline will fly to India, China, and Australia, he said. The company plans to use its new Boeing 737-900 ER for these services, Edward said. “We don’t need to use wide-body aircraft.”

Lion Air currently serves passengers traveling to several international destinations, namely Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam). — JP

Volcano eruptions cancel flights to Yogyakarta
Multa Fidrus, The Jakarta Post, Tangerang | Fri, 11/05/2010 5:35 PM | Jakarta

Soekarno Hatta Interantional Airport authorities decided to cancel all flights leaving for Yogyakarta for safety reasons due to the impacts of powerful eruptions of Mt. Merapi on Friday.

The cancellation followed a notice from the sultanate city’s Adi Sucipto airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I on Friday. The policy affected a total of 41 flights bound for Yogyakarta, causing thousands of passengers to be stranded for hours at Terminal 1.

Harry Cahyono, corporate secretary of Soekarno-Hatta airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II, said flights heading to Yogyakarta would likely resume at 6 a.m. on Saturday.

“However, we still have to take into account the situation in Yogyakarta via reports from Adi Suciupto airport operator and weather forecast from the meteorology and geophysics aganecy,” Harry told The Jakarta Post.

In its notice to PT Angkasa Pura II, the Yogyakarta airport operator said the airport’s runway was entirely covered by volcanic ash following the latest eruptions of Merapi.

“We don’t want to take any risk because of the present condition,” Harry said.

PT Angksa Pura II spokesman Andang Santoso said the 41 cancelled flights were Lion Air (16) Garuda Indonesia (16), Sriwijaya Air (2), Batavia Air (2) Air Asia (2) and Mandala Airlines (3).

Andang said the airliners were responsible for the handling of their passengers.

TRIBUNNEWS.COM, YOGYAKARTA - Gunung Merapi masih terus mengeluarkan awan panas dan abu vulkanik. Atas hal itu, Surono, Kepala PVMBG, Kementerian ESDM, meminta pesawat yang melewati Yogyakarta dan sekitarnya semakin waspada.

"Saya sudah menyampaikan ke pihak Ditjen Perhubungan Udara untuk melakukan evaluasi apakah abu vulkanik Merapi mengganggu penerbangan. Sebab, Merapi mengeluarkan energi besar yang sejak kemarin hingga saat ini belum berhenti," ungkapnya, di ruang monitoring BPPTK, Yogyakarta, seperti dilansir Kementerian ESDM, Kamis (4/11/2010).

Dikatakannya, cuaca hujan yang terjadi saat ini menyulitkan pengamatan visual aktivitas Merapi. Namun, berdasarkan pemantauan seismograf, letusan di puncak Merapi hingga kini masih berlangsung dengan intensitas dan skala yang tergolong besar.

Besarnya energi ini juga terekam pada peralatan di ruang monitoring. Hingga sekitar pukul 13.12 WIB, energi yang dikeluarkan Merapi sebesar 14.506.039 RSAM Unit/1000. Angka ini sudah melampaui energi sepanjang Rabu kemarin, 11.207.420 RSAM Unit/1000, serta saat hari terjadi letusan tanggal 26/10/2010 sebesar 5.941.008 RSAM Unit/1000.

"Aktivitas Merapi seperti ini belum pernah terjadi sebelumnya," ujar Surono.

Untuk itu, masyarakat diminta agar mengikuti ketentuan Pemerintah Daerah setempat dengan berada di luar Kawasan Radius Bencana (KRB) yang ditetapkan sebesar 15 kilometer.

Letusan berdurasi panjang ini juga telah mengaluarkan material dalam jumlah besar yang berpotensi menjadi lahar. "Untuk itu jangan main-main si sungai saat ini. Sangat berbahaya. Bahaya luncuran lahar dari material yang dikeluarkan Merapi sangat besar," papar Surono seraya menambahkan letusan Merapi saat ini tiga kali lebih besar dibanding letusan tahun 1997, 2001 dan 2006.(*)

Garuda not yet suspended operation in Jakarta

Unlike other international carriers which have stopped flights to Jakarta, Garuda Indonesia has no plan to suspend its operation in the capital city.

Garuda Indonesia spokesman Pujobroto said the national flag carrier had not received any notification that Soekarno-Hatta Airport had been affected by volcanic ash from erupting Mt. Merapi about 500 kilometers to the east.

“There has been no notice to airman so far from the aviation authorities which says the airport is affected by the volcanic ash. Therefore Garuda continues its activities,” Pujobroto said as quoted by kompas.com.

A total of 13 international carriers stopped their flights to Jakarta on Saturday, citing concerns about volcanic ash in the air that could cause damage to their aircraft and engines, and jeopardize safety. They include Malaysia Airlines, Air Asia, Singapore Airlines, Emirate, Ethihad, Turkish Air, Japan Airlines, Lufthansa and KLM.

Separately Soekarno Hatta Airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II said the airport was safe and not affected by the volcano’s eruptions.

“The airport is considered normal and safe so far,” airport operator’s president director Tri S Sunoko said.

Airlines stop Jakarta flights after volcano blast
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 11/06/2010 6:51 PM | National

Several international carriers for the first time temporarily canceled flights to the capital Jakarta - 280 miles (450 kilometers) west of volatile Mt. Merapi in Yogyakarta over concerns volcanic ash in the air could cause damage to their aircraft and engines, jeopardizing safety.

Among them were Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa and Malaysia Airlines, AP reported.

With the Yogyakarta airport closed because of poor visibility, ventilators needed for burn victims were stuck in Jakarta, and were being delivered instead by road, a hospital employee said.

Corporate secretary of Soekarno-Hatta Airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II, Hari Cahyono, confirmed that several international carriers canceled their flights to Jakarta.

He said the airport authorities were collecting data on which carriers that had suspended flights to Jakarta.

Previously Air Asia and Malaysia Airlines announced suspension of flights to Bandung after ash shower from Mt. Merapi reached the city.

Just days before President Barack Obama's visit to Indonesia, all international airlines canceled flights into the country’s capital city Saturday after a volcano hundreds of miles to the west unleashed its most powerful eruption in a century.

The cancellation also means passengers leaving Jakarta for overseas had to call off their trips.

Corporate secretary of Soekarno-Hatta Airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II, Hari Cahyono, told kompas.com international carriers began stopping flights to Jakarta at 4 p.m. He said many of them were put on hold in Malaysia and Singapore.

“The volcanic ash presence in the airways surrounding Jakarta could cause severe damage to our aircraft and engines which could impair the safety of our operations including passengers and crew," said Azharuddin Osman, director of operations for Malaysia Airlines, told AP.

Among the other carriers temporarily suspending flights were Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Lufthansa, Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia. Domestic flights were unaffected.

The eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajokul volcano in April forced the closure of most European airports for a week and led to the cancellation of over 100,000 flights.

Indonesia’s very own world class airline- Garuda Indonesia – now offers daily direct flights Sydney - Jakarta
Thursday, 11 November 2010

With traffic from Australia to Indonesia booming, Garuda Indonesia last September launched a new daily direct service to Jakarta from Sydney, increasing the existing capacity by four flights a week, provide travellers with even greater choice and convenience.

Bagus Y Siregar, Senior General Manager Australia for Garuda Indonesia told me on board my recent flight to Jakarta with Garuda Indonesia, “Garuda Indonesia’s reputation and image is changing rapidly due to the airline’s fleet growth and network expansion, adding, “The new direct daily flights to Jakarta will provide our customers with improved accessibility to the airline’s vast Asian network as well as to the daily Amsterdam via Dubai service, introduced in August 2010.”

He also said recently, “While there is no doubt Garuda Indonesia remains committed to our valued leisure customers, we are also increasingly targeting the corporate traveller with Jakarta now positioned as an alternate gateway into Asia and Europe.”

“With future plans to expand the airline’s European network to include Frankfurt, Paris, London and Rome, there is no doubt that Garuda Indonesia is an increasingly attractive option for business travellers.”

With the daily flights operated by Garuda Indonesia’s new fleet of A330-200 aircraft, which also operates the three times weekly Melbourne to Jakarta service, I was fortunate to be able to try their new aircraft, which feature Garuda Indonesia’s new signature interior and individual touch-screen LCD TVs throughout business and economy classes with Video on Demand [VOD] entertainment systems offering 25 feature films and 250 audio tracks. Business class passengers will experience fully lie-flat beds.

Join me in discovering Garuda Indonesia onboard their service from Sydney to Jakarta on their fabulous Airbus 330, and meet Bagus Y Siregar their Senior GM for Australia and also Garuda’s Executive VP Operation Services, who also happened to be flying the aircraft!

I think both discussions will help give you no doubt whatsoever that flying Garuda is something you and your clients have to do!

Please continue with me over the next two weeks as I continue my amazing journey through Indonesia and Bali, discovering fabulous Indonesia and Bali product, not only in articles hot from the destinations, but also amazing on location videos – for the two next weeks starting last Monday 8 November on eTB and eTBTV go on location from Indonesia and Bali brought to you by Garuda Indonesia and Garuda Orient Holidays.
