Mandala Airlines plans to meet govt
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 08/12/2011

http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2...meet-govt.html

The new management of privately owned Mandala Airlines plans to meet Transportation Ministry officials on Monday, an official says.

“A team from Mandala will come to my office on Monday, including Saratoga [Group] and Tiger [Airways] people,” Air Transportation Director General Herry Bhakti Gumay said Friday.

When asked about the agenda for the meeting, Herry said it was likely the management wanted to discuss their business plans for the troubled airline.

Earlier this year, Mandala announced it would temporarily halt operations after revealing huge debts of Rp 2.45 trillion (US$286.65 million).

In May, Saratoga Group acquired a 51 percent stake in the airline, while Singapore-based Tiger Airways acquired 33 percent.

Other creditors, through a debt-to-equity swap, hold the remaining 16 percent.

Saratoga Group co-founder Sandiaga Uno said there had been good progress in Mandala’s acquisition process and the airline was targeting to fly again this year. (swd)

MI/SilkAir isn't a low cost carrier, it's regional wings from SQ

I don't think that Garuda will be looking at the african market at this moment because they are still focus in expanding its domestic network and building its brand in Europe. After the reintroduction of the CGK-AMS via DXB in 2010, GA would be reintroducing CGK-FRA/LHR/CDG via DXB and a direct CGK-AMS using its new B777-300ER in 2013.

I think Garuda will rely on its future skyteam partner, Kenya Airways for its African market, for example Garuda will operate the CGK-DXB route while Kenya Airways will operate DXB to African Cities via Nairobi
I do believe that a 3 weekly CGK-JNB could work well, if offering good connections onward from CGK to Sout-east Asia, Phillipines, China as well as Australia. Many people travel via SIN, KUL, BKK or HKG between JNB and Australia/NZ...CGK would be a shorter alternative.
Also on the other hand connecting in JNB to GRU and EZE flights, would offer the quickest option between Indonesia and South America.
There would also be slight demand between Southern Africa and Indonesia itself, with many South Africans holiday in Bali, while Indonesia also made several investments over the last years in Southern Africa.

CGK-JNB won't work unless GA has a lot of interline agreements with airlines flying to southern african countries and south America, since Aerolinas Argentina (future skyteam member) already terminated its service to JNB.

Although, GA offers connections to Asian cities, it is still closer to fly to BKK and KUL from JNB due to the flight routes, unless GA has ETOPS-180/270 rating.

Airlines to add extra flights for Idul Fitri holiday
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Mon, 08/15/2011

http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2...i-holiday.html

The government issued carriers permits for an additional 178 domestic flights and 196 international flights to prepare for the expected increase in passenger numbers during Idul Fitri.


“As of Thursday, we cleared four local carriers to add to their domestic flights and cleared nine carriers to add to their international flights,” Transportation Ministry spokesman Bambang S. Ervan said Friday.

The Transportation Ministry granted the permits to flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, Metro Batavia, Indonesia AirAsia and Travel Express, as well as foreign carriers Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Silk Air, China Airlines and Tiger Airways.

The extra flights include routes from Jakarta to several popular homecoming destinations such as Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Semarang, Malang, Medan, Padang and Pekanbaru.

The ministry also approved extra flights to popular holiday destinations such as Bali and Hong Kong.

Garuda will add 37 flights, including from Jakarta to Denpasar, Yogyakarta, Padang and Solo, while AirAsia will add 10 flights to its Jakarta-Denpasar route.

Garuda spokesman Pujobroto said in addition to adding flights, the state-owned airline might also using widebody airplanes in certain routes.

Currently Garuda has Boeing 747-400 and Airbus A330-200/300 widebody airplanes and Boeing 737-300/400/500/800 narrowbody airplanes in its fleet.

Batavia will add 120 flights, including from Jakarta to Bengkulu, Yogyakarta, Malang, Pontianak, Semarang and Surabaya, while Travel Express will add 11 extra flights on its Jakarta-Makassar route.

On international routes, Cathay Pacific will add 31 flights, Hong Kong Airlines 15 flights, AirAsia 10 flights, Singapore Airlines 15 flights, Silk Air 30 flights, Garuda 13 flights, China Airlines 57 flights, Tiger Airways 11 flights and Malaysia Airlines 14 flights.

The extra flights, scheduled to run over a 16-day period from seven days before to seven days after Idul Fitri, are expected to accommodate 131,676 more people traveling by air.

Indonesia AirAsia corporate communications manager Audrey Progastama Petriny said AirAsia chose to add extra flights to its Bali and Singapore routes as it expect increased demand during the holiday season.

Audrey said the Jakarta–Yogyakarta route was another favorite route during the holiday that marks the end of Ramadhan.

She added that Air Asia had five daily flights serving the Jakarta-Yogyakarta route.

The government estimates there will be a 4.14 percent increase in the number of holiday travelers to 15.4 million this year, up from 14.8 million last year.

The ministry estimates the number of air passengers would increase by 15 percent to 2.4 million from 2.1 million last year, the highest among all means of transportation.

Transportation Minister Freddy Numberi said in July the capacity of air transportation would be boosted to 4.17 million passengers this year from 3.49 million passengers last year.

To prevent ticket prices from spiralling out of control, the government has also imposed ceiling prices for all means of transportation, ranging from 85 percent to 100 percent for airline tickets. (swd)

Drop in Fuel Cost Pushes Garuda Back to Profit
August 17, 2011

http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/busin...-profit/459832

National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia announced a complete financial turnaround in just a few weeks.

On July 30, Garuda posted a Rp 185.7 billion ($21.9 million) loss in the first half of the year, citing a rise in fuel and personnel costs .

But on Tuesday, the Jakarta-based airline said it returned to the black with July’s earnings. The one-month’s worth of profit wiped out losses for the entire first half of the year, thanks to a drop in fuel prices, an increase in passenger volume and more efficient flight schedules.

“Garuda’s performance in July erased the operating loss it made in the first semester,” Garuda president director Emirsyah Satar said on Tuesday.

Net income in July surged 81 percent to Rp 320 billion from the same month last year. Revenue climbed 41 percent to Rp 2.45 trillion, while operating profit increased 43 percent to Rp 459.5 billion.


“We will keep on adding capacity and increasing aircraft utilization. Therefore, cumulatively we will not record a loss this year if fuel remains within the current price,” said Elisa Lombantoruan, finance director at Garuda. The average price of jet fuel was about $93 per liter this month, compared to $120 per liter in June.

Garuda’s impressive performance has raised eyebrows from analysts, including Edwin Sebayang, head researcher at MNC Securities.

“If it truly happened, it is quite a surprise, and questionable,” he said. “Even though the oil price had been decreasing, it is still high. And even if there were fuel efficiencies and a surge in the number of passengers, it is still a little bit impossible to increase that significantly [in a month].”


Emirsyah said that Garuda’s passenger volume in July reached a record high of 1.64 million, up 30 percent from the same month in 2010 – and the airline expects even more people to fly during the festive months of the second half.

“During a regular month, we carry between 1.2 million to 1.3 million passengers. We might get the same volume [like July] in December,” Emirsyah said.

As of July, the company operated 78 aircraft and managed to keep its on-time-performance above 90 percent. It plans to operate 92 aircraft by the end of the year.

Garuda will have 99 additional flights in anticipation of Ramadan’s peak, which starts next week, and will add as many as 24,930 seats for five routes.

“We began to see profit in June, and then we got bigger profit in July,” said Elisa. “ We will keep on adding capacity and increasing aircraft utilization. Therefore, cumulatively we will not record losses this year if fuel remains within the current price.”

Garuda to add 30,000 seats during holiday period
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia will add 30,000 extra seats during the Idul Fitri holiday later this month when many Indonesian Muslims return to their hometowns, Garuda spokesperson Pujobroto said.

“We will add the extra seats from the middle of August to the middle of September to prepare for a significant increase in demand during Idul Fitri,” he told The Jakarta Post on Sunday.

Pujobroto said the extra seats would be on flights from Jakarta to Solo, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Padang and Palembang, all of which popular are destinations during Idul Fitri.

He added that Garuda would also increase the number of flights to popular tourist destinations such as Bali and Singapore.

“To anticipate the increased number of passengers, we will also operate more wide-body aircrafts,” Pujobroto said.

He said air travel was expected to begin to increase three days before Idul Fitri, which falls on Aug. 30 – 31.

The government estimates that the number of air passengers during the holiday period would increase by 15 percent to 2.4 million from 2.1 million last year, the highest number compared to other modes of transportation. (swd)

Garuda to decide on sub-100 jets in Q4
Novan Iman Santosa, The Jakarta Post, Cengkareng | Tue, 08/23/2011 10:31 PM

Flag carrier Garuda Indonesia will decide in the fourth quarter this year which sub-100 regional jets to procure for contract signing in 2012 so the new airplanes can be operational by late 2013.

Garuda president director Emrisyah Satar said on Friday evening that the final decision would be made fairly and in the open.

“We plan to buy 18 of the sub-100 regional jets to serve secondary cities, with bases in Balikpapan, Makassar, Manado and Medan,” Emirsyah told The Jakarta Post at the airline’s headquarters in the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport compound in Cengkareng, Banten.

“The airplanes will be leased, although we may purchase the aircraft, depending on future studies.”

Garuda is considering the Bombardier CRJ1000 NextGen from Canada and the Embraer E-Jets E190 from Brazil.

Bombardier flew one of its 65-seat CRJ700 NextGens to Jakarta for a series of presentations with Garuda’s board of directors, employees and the media on Thursday and Friday.

“We bring this aircraft because it has similarity in layout with the CRJ1000 NextGen we are offering to Garuda, although with fewer seats,” Bombardier Asia Pacific airline marketing manager Eugene R. Pieterse said at a briefing before a flight demonstration for the media on Friday afternoon.

“The CRJ700 Next Gen has nine business-class seats and 56 economy-class seats, while the CRJ1000 NextGen has nine business-class seats and 84 economy-class seats.”

Pieterse said Bombardier had flown the aircraft from Canada through Alaska, Russia, Japan and Hong Kong to Jakarta to show the aircraft-maker’s seriousness about doing business with Garuda.

Stands for Canadian Regional Jet, the CRJ NextGen airplane line, also included the CRJ900 with a capacity of 80 to 90 seats. The NextGen was developed from the smaller, 50-seat CRJ200.

Bombardier vice president of Asia-Pacific sales Trung Ngo said the CRJ1000 Next Gen — listed at US$45 million — was the best option for Garuda because it had the same capacity and half the operating cost as the Boeing 737-500s that Garuda currently operates.

Bombardier has yet to sell one of its regional jets in Indonesia, while Embraer signed a deal at the Paris Air Show on June 21 with privately owned Sriwijaya Air for a firm order of 20 E190s and an option for another 10 in a deal worth up to $1.28 billion based on listed prices.

Also at the Paris Air Show, Garuda signed a firm order for 25 Airbus A320s and an option for another 25 A320s for its low-cost carrier unit, Citilink, for between $85 million and $91 million each. Airlines usually get discounts for large orders.

Merpati to open Surabaya – Banyuwangi route

State-owned Merpati Nusantara Airlines will launch its new Surabaya – Banyuwangi route on Wednesday, according to Merpati spokesman, Sukandi.

Sukandi said on Monday that the new route is scheduled to fly four times-a-week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, using an MA60 aircraft.

“Studies conducted by Merpati, the Transportation Agency and Regional Development Agency showed that a large number of people originally from Banyuwangi live in other areas of the country, including cities across Java, and Makassar and Manado. We chose Surabaya because it is a central transit point,” he said.

Merpati is launching the new route just before the start of Idul Fitri next week, “to anticipate the soaring number of passengers traveling from Jakarta to Banyuwangi and back to Jakarta during the homecoming period,” he said.

The journey time of the flight will take approximately 50 minutes.

After a while, new bad press for GA

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Anger over Indonesia airline's job breast checks


source

SEOUL: Would-be flight attendants in South Korea have accused Indonesia's national airline of making them strip nearly naked and have their breasts handled in medical check-ups, provoking a storm of criticism.

Several dozen candidates for 18 highly-coveted female flight attendant positions with Garuda Indonesia were required to strip down to their panties to screen out those with tattoos or breast implants, one applicant told AFP.

She declined to be named, saying she was still waiting to hear whether she had got a job after the tests last month.

"The hand examination on breast was held since those with implants can have health issues when air pressure falls during flights," Yonhap news agency quoted an airline official as saying.

Cabin crew are banned from having tattoos and workers hired in other countries such as Japan and Australia were also subject to a similar process, the agency quoted the official as saying.

Garuda Indonesia's Seoul office denied part of the accusation, saying job applicants did not have to remove their bras and its staff only "lightly tapped (the) upper side of their breasts."

"Those who passed the medical check-up said they felt no shame in the process," the firm said in a statement, adding it was common for airlines to check if job seekers had tattoos or body implants.

But the move baffled industry peers and angered women's rights groups, which called the process unnecessary and intrusive.

Kim Da-Mi, a Seoul-based activist with the Sexual Violence Relief Centre, urged the state human rights agency to take action, telling AFP: "I wonder if such a practice is acceptable in Indonesia."

Indonesia has the world's largest Muslim-majority population.

"We've never heard of or done such checkup on flight attendants," said a spokesman for South Korea's flag carrier Korean Air, calling the Jakarta-based airline's tests "bizarre".

"I wonder if that means passengers with breast implants should not fly also," he told AFP.

Competition for flight attendant jobs is fierce in South Korea, where the role is seen as offering high pay and travel opportunities, and thousands of young women prepare for years before applying for vacancies.

Garuda Indonesia is denying that the physical checkup given to cabin crew applicants in Korea was sexist and insulting.

“They say the applicants stripped naked and had their breasts ‘fondled’. That is totally incorrect,” Garuda spokesperson Pudjobroto said referring to several Korean media reports.

Yonhap news agency said applicants had to strip to their underwear and lie on a bed while an Indonesian male doctor palpated their breasts and other parts of their bodies, as reported by the Korea Herald on Wednesday.

Garuda’s local spokesperson, Pudjobroto, said the breast palpation was done to determine if applicants had implants, which might be hazardous during a sharp drop of air pressure.

Pudjobroto said the physical examination in Korea was carried out by a team sent from Indonesia. “The team has been with us for a long time. We trust them. Every physical examinations adhered to international practices in the airline industry,” he said.

On the fondling accusation, Pudjobroto said “there is an international standard that must be followed. Due to health considerations, the standard demands that all cabin crew not have any physical anomaly that might have an adverse impact.”

Angkasa Pura sets aside $655.2m to expand five airports
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Thu, 08/25/2011 7:14 PM

State airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I (AP I) has allocated Rp 5.6 trillion (US$655.2 million) to expand five airports in Bali, Balikpapan, Surabaya, Yogyakarta and Banjarmasin, according to its spokesperson.

AP I public relations head Merpin Butarbutar said Thursday that AP I would convert its first five airports into world class airports, equipped with hotels and shopping centers, by 2013.

“AP I will expand passenger and logistic capacity to enhance our service and revenue,” Merpin said, adding that it would also expand the remaining airports operated by the firm after expansion completion.

AP I operates 13 airports in eastern Indonesia, including those in Semarang, Ujung Pandang, Mataram, Biak and Ambon.

The company would use internal funds and bank loans to finance the projects, Merpin added. (swd)

And finally the responses from the FA candidates themselves

Korean Cabin Crew Applicants: Untrue Reports in Korean Media

On August 24, 2011, several Korean media interviewed 10 Korean cabin crew applicants after they had completed the final stage of the Garuda cabin crew selection process, conducted at the Garuda office in Seoul, Korea.

According to Chosun.com, one of the online media belonging to the "Chosun Co" group, the largest and most influential media in Korea, one of the applicants said, "We feel really embarrassed about this article which isn’t true."

"We are not fools. If the doctors really touched our breast, don’t you think all 27 ladies would have done something about it? All the applicants that underwent the physical check-up were told to keep their bras on and wear an examination gown, and during that time, doctors only examined their chest.

Earlier media reports mentioned that doctors conducting the physical examinations of Korean cabin crew applicants behaved in an improper manner during the physical check-up.

As we have previously informed, Garuda Indonesia has denied any allegations and declared the reports and incident as totally untrue. Korean flight attendants applying to become Garuda Indonesia’s cabin crew are required to follow a physical examination conducted by doctors who perform according to the standards of their profession and are bound by the Hippocratic Oath. In addition, during the entire examination, the doctors were accompanied by a female local staff and a Korean citizen to assist in providing the necessary explanations regarding the physical and health examinations.

On 27 July 2011, Garuda Indonesia carried out a selection process of 27 cabin crew candidates of which five failed the tests and will not continue to the next selection stage.

Ryanto added that the new service would operate every day.

“The Palembang-Medan route has been in demand. It will also run every day,” he said.

According to Ryanto, Garuda currently operates a total of 31 domestic routes and 19 international routes.
