Garuda halves Amsterdam flights, hikes Asian services
Mimi Hudoyo, Jakarta, January 25, 2012

GARUDA Indonesia will reduce the frequency on its Jakarta-Amsterdam route from daily to four-weekly from March 1.


Garuda vice president corporate communications Pujobroto attributed the move to declining traffic from Europe as a result of the Eurozone crisis.


The scaled-down service will be operated from Jakarta on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, using an Airbus 330-200 aircraft with 222 seats. The return flight will be operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Mondays.


Meanwhile, Garuda will launch five-weekly Denpasar-Tokyo (Haneda) services from April 27, using an Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 257 seats. The airline will cease from April 10 its Denpasar-Nagoya services, which were affected by last year’s earthquake and tsunami.


Garuda will also start daily Jakarta-Taipei flights from May 19, using a Boeing 737-800NG aircraft with 156 seats, as well as boost its Jakarta-Kuala Lumpur flights from twice- to thrice-daily, starting next month.
