Garuda Indonesia Adds New destinations in Europe and Middle East

Garuda Indonesia, Indonesia’s national carrier, launched flight services last week to six new destinations as a result of the airline's recently signed codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways.

Through this worldwide codeshare partnership, Garuda Indonesia opens new services to six international destinations: London, Paris, Manchester, Moscow, Athens, and Muscat. The airline also officially moved its international hub from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, Etihad's headquarters, on December 2, 2012.

Emirsyah Satar, President and CEO of Garuda Indonesia, said: “The decision to move our hub was made to deliver on our promise to raise the quality of service for our customers and is a key part of the codeshare agreement signed with Etihad Airways in October, a partnership of which we are immensely proud.

“The opening of the Abu Dhabi hub will accommodate passengers who wish to travel to more than 80 destinations served by Etihad Airways in 50 cities in Europe, North America, the Middle East, and Africa."

Southwest Pacific region growing in customer demand

Bagus Y. Siregar, Vice President for Garuda Indonesia Australia and SWP, commented: “The Southwest Pacific region is growing in customer demand exponentially each year. This exclusive codeshare offers Eithad's passengers access to our ports in the region and also opens the world further to Garuda Indonesia's passengers."

The agreement encompasses a codeshare agreement across passenger services including frequent flyer programs and a cooperation across cargo, engineering, maintenance, and airport services.

Throughout this cooperation, Garuda Indonesia will continue to expand its network to more than 27 destinations in Europe, North America, the Middle East, and Africa: Paris, London, Frankfurt, Milan, Munich, Manchester, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Geneva, Brussels, Moscow (Domodedovo), and Athens in Europe; New York, Toronto, Chicago in the North American region; Cairo, Johannesburg, and Nairobi in Africa; and Jeddah, Muscat, Dammam, Riyadh, Amman, Istanbul, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Beirut in the Middle East.

Etihad Airways passengers will now be connected with Garuda Indonesia's network of services across the Indonesian archipelago, Asia, Australia, and Japan. Specifically, Etihad will partner on the following routes: Jakarta - Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta - Abu Dhabi, and to major cities in Indonesia, such as Surabaya, Denpasar, Manado, Makassar, and Balikpapan (from Jakarta).
