Not in the near time... IMO they will focus on non-stop Amsterdam first, and then the big three - UK, France, Germany...

Garuda reports load factor increase over Idul Fitri period

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 09/09/2011 11:52 AM

JPJP National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia reports that its load factor increased sharply by 27 percent during the recent Idul Fitri holiday period, an official at the State-Owned Enterprises Ministry says.

During that period, the total number of passengers who flew with Garuda reached 665,576, as compared to 518,445 during the corresponding period last year.

“Overall, there has been a significant increase in the number of passengers and the Garuda Indonesia flight capacity compared to that of last year’s Idul Fitri period,” ministry spokesman Mahmud Husen said Friday, as quoted by kompas.com.

He added that the surge in passenger numbers had exceeded the ministry’s expectations.

“Our initial expectation was an increase of only 15 percent,” he said.

Mahmud said the increase was made possible by the increase in flight frequency, which accumulated to a total of 5,164 flights, up 26.7 percent from last year’s total of 4,076 flights during the Idul Fitri holiday period.

When is GA going to restart SGN? I know VN doesn't have any intentions on CGK itself, but I'm pretty sure they will place their codes on the CGK services if GA were to restart flights to Vietnam as they currently do with SIN. It would be good to have SkyTeams 2 prominent SE Asian members to connect their HUBs! I look forward in VN & GA working closer with each other, on the same level if not better than SQ & TG, maybe with a JV?

It's interesting neither VN or GA serve each others home countries. VN is getting alot of A321s to expand so we might see them in CGK or DPS in the future.

yup that's quite odd. meanwhile GA is receiving more and more 738s fresh from Seattle, sending one of those planes to SGN wouldn't be a problem for GA. I think SGN-CGK is feasible as well as profitable and if they still unsure to do it daily, then try it thrice weekly instead.

The green color looks so faded, and ugly. While Garuda's blue livery looks great and vibrant. I wished Garuda chose red color for their Citilink aircrafts.

My best guess is that this is only a temporary livery until Citilink becomes its own company, notice the livery says Garuda Indonesia, not Citilink.

tbh im not a fan of this livery as well, too garuda-like

Lion Air to apply for new AOC for new full-service carrier
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Mon, 09/19/2011

source, http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2...e-carrier.html

Privately owned airline Lion Air said it would apply for a new Air Operator Certificate (AOC) for its new full-service carrier, which is planned to be launched in November 2012, because it will bear a different company name, an executive said Sunday.

“Lion Air has been committed to being a low-cost carrier and we already have a steady market. As we plan to expand our wings into becoming a full-service carrier, we should have a new airline, which will need a new AOC from the country’s civil aviation authority,” Lion Air’s director of general affairs, Edward Sirait, told The Jakarta Post over the phone.

He added that, in general, an airline cannot be both a low-cost carrier and full-service carrier at the same time.

“Law No. 1/2009 on Aviation also stipulates that one carrier should only choose one type of service,” Edward said. Lion Air decided to expand into the full-service domain because the company had predicted that the full-service market would see continual growth.

“At this moment, the national annual growth of airline passengers has reached 15 percent. We are sure that travelers who opt for full-service amenities will continue to grow as well,” Edward said.

Currently, Lion Air has one subsidiary, Wings Air, which serves as a feeder for Lion, linking its main destinations with secondary cities.

Separately, the Transportation Ministry’s air transportation director general, Herry Bakti Gumay, said that a new AOC was not a problem as long as the airline fulfills a series of requirements that new airlines must follow.

However, he indicated the expansion of Lion Air was to gain more profits in the future.

“Let’s take a look at Garuda Indonesia. The airline also has Citilink to provide low-cost services. I think Lion Air will try to compete with other airlines that provide dual types of service,” Herry said.

He added that in 2015, there would be an ASEAN Open Sky Policy, an international policy concept which calls for the opening of a free market for the airline industry.

“By creating a full-service airline, Lion Air will possibly be able to compete with the regional giants, such as Singapore Airlines and Malaysia Airlines,” Herry said.

Currently, Lion Air is mired with delayed flights due to tight schedules, and the ministry has ordered the airline to have a number of its airplanes on standby in case of delays.

Edward, however, was upbeat that the airline will be able to attract a large number of passengers who will opt for the full-service carrier.

“As of today, our on-time performance [OTP] has reached 80 percent. We are very sure of our plan,” he said.

He added that the new full-service airline would offer a huge surprise to customers, offering a totally different type of service compared to other airlines that already provide such services.

Edward, however, refused to elaborate on the planned fullservice system other than it would have in-flight meals.

Edward added that as a full-service carrier, the new airline will target business travelers and those from the upper echelons of society, as well as those people who merely prefer full-service rather than a low-cost one.

He also refused to reveal more information on how many pilots would be hired for the new airline.

Edward only said the new airline would use 12 Boeing 737-900ERs as a start-up.

Lion Air received its 50th 737-900ER on Saturday, with the total due to rise to 54 by the end of this year, and 178 by 2016.

“We are still calculating that. Much will depend on which routes we want to serve. We are still in the process of determining the destinations for our new airline,” he said.

He added that the full-service airline might possibly cover both the busiest and quieter airports, meaning both small and big cities. (fem)

Mandala aims to fly as soon as acquisition is finally closed
Esther Samboh, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Mon, 09/26/2011

New stakeholders of troubled carrier Mandala Airlines expect the restructured airline to fly “soon” after the acquisition transaction with Singapore’s budget airline Tiger Airways and Indonesian strategic investment firm Saratoga Group was finally closed on Saturday.

Saratoga Capital Investment manager Devin Wirawan said Mandala would be back in the air 90 days after the acquisition and that Mandala was now carrying out the final restructuring phase: securing an air operator certificate (AOC) from the Transportation Ministry.

“I have no details about the application process with the ministry. To my knowledge, the application has not been sent yet. However, talks are taking place,” Devin said.

Devin said that the new stakeholders had not decided whether to continue using the brand name “Mandala”, which has been popular in the country, or change it to “Tiger”.

“We have not yet discussed the details,” Devin told The Jakarta Post on Sunday.

He said that the restructured airlines would serve domestic and international routes within a five-hour flying radius.

He declined to specifically mention the routes or whether the airline would serve Mandala’s previous international routes linking Jakarta with Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore.

Before it ceased operations, Mandala used Airbus A320 after switching from Boeing 737-400 in early 2009 and retiring its much older Boeing 737-200 in early 2008.

“The routes will depend on the number of aircraft. Mandala used to have many aircraft. However, we certainly will operate profitable routes,” Devin said, adding that the airline would operate at least five aircraft as required by Transportation Ministerial Regulation No. 25/2008.

The regulation stipulates that an airline had to have at least have two airplanes and lease three others.

Debt problems, as high as Rp 2.45 trillion (US$286.65 million), ceased Mandala’s operation earlier this year. The debt problems arose because of the high cost of leasing aircraft. Eleven leased planes had been returned.

“Mandala executives concluded conditional sales and purchase agreements and other legal and commercial documents with the Saratoga Group as the financial investor and Tiger Airways as the strategic investor on Friday, Sept. 23, 2011,” the airline said in a press statement on Saturday.

Saratoga is now the majority shareholder of Mandala with 51 percent stake, followed by Tiger’s 33 percent ownership, while the remaining 16 percent is owned by the airline’s existing shareholders and concurrent creditors through a debt-to-equity swap mechanism.

“We are happy to have concluded the deal for this transaction and expect Mandala to be operating in the future soon. We will work closely with our business partners to realize that goal,” Tiger Chin Yau Seng said in the statement.

Sandiaga Uno, who is among the founders of Saratoga Group, and Mandala president director Diono Nurjadin expressed the same view, expecting Mandala “to be back in the air as soon as possible”.

Mandala’s new operation will be based on Tiger’s business plan and will use Airbus A320 aircraft to offer low-fare travel to international and domestic destinations within a five-hour flying radius, Mandala said in the statement. (rcf)

Indonesia to Become Top 10 Aviation Destination by 2014
Faisal Maliki Baskoro | September 22, 2011

The International Air Transport Association forecasts Indonesia will be among the top 10 markets for air travel due to the country’s robust economic growth, tourism, and thriving industries.

Tony Tyler, chief executive officer of IATA, said on Thursday that between 2010 and 2014, Indonesia is expected to be the sixth-fastest growing market for travel by international passengers. In 2014, Indonesia will rank as the ninth-largest domestic market and among the top 10 for international freight.

“The potential for aviation in Indonesia is enormous. Alongside its significant domestic traffic, its location at the heart of Southeast Asia gives this market tremendous potential,” Tyler said.


By 2014, international traffic to Indonesia is expected to be about 22.7 million passengers, with the compound annual growth rate at 9.3 percent from 2010 to 2014.

The size of Indonesia’s domestic market is expected to be 38.9 million passengers in 2014, growing annually by 8.7 percent from 2010 to 2014. In three years, the United States will have the largest domestic market at 670 million.

Freight in Indonesia is forecast to be 300 million metric tons by 2014, after a compound annual growth rate of 9.4 percent from 2010.

“Only aviation can connect efficiently Indonesia’s nearly 240 million inhabitants domestically and to the world. So it is important that the government has coordinated policy measures, including the critical issues of ensuring safety and adequate infrastructure for development,” Tyler said.

Still, growth in Indonesia may be limited by the capacity at Jakata’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. Indonesia needs to improve its infrastructure and safety standards to fulfill its potential, he said.

“[Arriving at SHIA], it’s a disappointing experience. Airlines are trying to be efficient, but the airport is overloaded. It’s a stark comparison compared to other airports in the region,” Tyler said.

The airport, which was originally designed to handle 20 million to 25 million passengers, is already running beyond capacity. When its third terminal is completed by 2013, SHIA officials expected it would allow the airport to handle 44 million passengers. But in 2010, SHIA handled more than 43 million passengers.

Tyler also called for the government to conduct a mandatory IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) for local carriers and IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) for Indonesian airports.

“The biggest concern for Indonesia is safety. Mandating IOSA will send a strong signal to the world that Indonesia is serious about solving its safety issues,” he said.
