Garuda Indonesia will increase flight frequency of the Jakarta - Amsterdam route from five times to six times a week from July 22nd.
The addition of Jakarta - Amsterdam route frequency is part of the airline’s efforts to meet rising market demands, and to strengthen its presence in the international market, especially in the European region.
To add more flights between Jakarta and Amsterdam, Garuda Indonesia made adjustments to its Jakarta - Amsterdam - London Gatwick service, changing it to Jakarta - Singapore - Amsterdam - Jakarta flights three times a week. From now on, Garuda Indonesia serves Jakarta - Amsterdam - London Gatwick with three weekly flights and flies Jakarta - Singapore - Amsterdam - Jakarta also three times a week.
The addition of Singapore on the Jakarta - Amsterdam service is part of Garuda Indonesia to develop the travel market from Singapore to Europe, as well as to offer a greater choice of travel to customers traveling to Europe from its Amsterdam hub.
Furthermore, with the addition of Singapore on the Jakarta - Amsterdam service, Garuda Indonesia hopes to enhance seat load factor and cargo volume on that particular route considering that Changi International Airport is one of the world’s busiest airports, registering an average of 50 million passenger movements every year.
Director commercial of Garuda Indonesia, Handayani, explained that the airline is increasing flight frequency on the Jakarta - Amsterdam route to keep up with high travel demands to Europe, as well as to accommodate increasing traffic between Indonesia and countries in Europe.
“Increasing flight frequency also offers our customers a wider choice of flight schedules and ultimately greater travel convenience.
“In addition to serving Jakarta to London via Amsterdam three times a week, Garuda Indonesia also serves flights from Jakarta - Singapore - Amsterdam - Jakarta as many as three times a week,” said Handayani.
“As the busiest city in Europe and indeed in the world, London is also a very important destination in Garuda Indonesian European network besides Amsterdam.
“In line with the airline’s route restructuring in Europe, Garuda Indonesia is also developing codeshare agreements with various airline partners on the Amsterdam - London service to complement its three times a week schedule.
“We will continue to enhance our London service in the future to meet increasing market demands,” added Handayani.
To serve the Jakarta - Singapore - Amsterdam - Jakarta and Jakarta - Amsterdam - London services, Garuda Indonesia operates a Boeing 777-300 ER with a capacity of 314 passengers in three flight classes; First Class, Business Class, and Economy Class.
