“In addition, we are very proud to be able to start commercial flights to Singapore at such a short timeframe. At the initial stage, we will operate three return flights from Jakarta to Guangzhou weekly. However, by December, we will increase the flight frequency from Jakarta to Guangzhou and Guangzhou to Jakarta to seven times a week.”

Since early this year, TransNusa has been enjoying healthy growth pattern after rebranding itself as a Premium Service Carrier for its international routes by introducing a new business model.

Datuk Bernard had said previously that for its international routes, the services that TransNusa offers exceeds that of a low-cost airline.

“Based on our intensive market research, we know that traveller’s behavioural pattern has changed, specifically due to the Covid-19 pandemic and as a result of this, we have curated different packages to meet the needs of different passengers.

“For our international flights, we not only provide premium services with competitive ticket prices in comparison to other low-cost airlines, but we have attractive new product bundles called SEAT, SEAT-PLUS and FLEXI-PRO.

“Our passengers will enjoy check-in baggage of between 15kgs to 30 kgs, depending on the product purchased,” Datuk Bernard says, explaining that the baggage offering was over and above the 7kgs limit offered as a passenger’s hand carry.

“For the highest package, FLEXI-PRO, we provide more complete services such as free baggage 30kgs, free to choose seats, free food, and drinks, priority at check-in and boarding, and, no less interesting is the passengers’ ability to be able to change the flight schedule without restrictions and obtain refund when needed.”

“Many people look for competitive ticket prices when they want to travel, but they also expect the best service. Therefore, we are committed to providing affordable and competitive ticket prices, while still providing premium services to our customers. We offer various facilities and services that can enhance your travel experiences, such as more comfortable seats, high-quality food and beverages, as well as friendly and professional service from our crew. With our competitive ticket prices and premium services, we are confident that you will be satisfied with your travel experience with us.”

TransNusa has configured its A320 aircraft with a 174 seat configuration, which allows for passengers to enjoy 30-31 inches of legroom, comparable to the experience one would get in a full-service airline.

Other than Guangzhou and Singapore, TransNusa also has commercial flights to Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru in Malaysia, and Bali and Yogyakarta in Indonesia.
