Garuda Indonesia to Increases Seasonal Flight Frequencies to Australia

National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia will increase seasonal flight frequencies on its Jakarta-Australia routes from four to five flights per week, and Bali-Australia routes from six to seven flights per week, from May until October 2017.

This addition will improve route performance and hence offer the airline’s customers more flexibility when flying between the popular cities.

The addition of these frequencies for each Australian route will be adjusted to market demand in the period of the holiday season, improving convenience for passengers travelling between the two countries.

Currently, Garuda Indonesia serves six routes in three cities in Australia from both its main hubs in Jakarta and Denpasar, including Jakarta-Sydney, Denpasar-Sydney, Jakarta-Melbourne, Denpasar-Melbourne, Jakarta-Perth, and Denpasar-Perth.

“Indonesia is one of Australia’s fastest-growing markets for international visitors and is Australia’s 12th largest market for international visitor arrivals,” says Australia’s minister for trade, tourism, and investment, The Hon Steven Ciobo MP. “Indonesia has the potential to be worth over $1 billion in overnight visitation by 2020 and we hope that today’s announcement by Garuda Indonesia will help us achieve that. Tourism Australia is the first external national tourism organization to form a strategic partnership with Garuda, a relationship that I am sure will continue to flourish.”
