Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 13 May 2009

Garuda Indonesia is to launch reduced and rescheduled flights between Bangkok and Jakarta from 16 May.

 The new thrice-weekly daytime flights will replace overnight fligthts, which operated seven nights a week.

The new service will now operate from Bangkok and Jakarta every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday using Boeing 737 aircraft.

Flight GA867 will depart from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport at 15.10 and arrive at Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Jakarta at 18.35 local time.

 The return service, GA866, will take off at 10.30 and arrive in Bangkok at 14.00.

 Bambang Sunan, General Manager for Thailand, Myanmar, Laos & Cambodia, Garuda Indonesia, said, “The change in schedule is due to an increase in passenger demand for daytime flights into Jakarta. It also allows passengers to make easy onward connections to other regional cities or domestic destinations.”

The three-hour flight to Jakarta from Bangkok can accommodate a total of 96 passengers in a two class configuration – 12 passengers in Executive Class and 84 in Economy.

Earlier this year, Garuda Indonesia announced the launch of 18 domestic and regional routes including Jakarta-Lampung, Jakarta-Malang, Jakarta-Kendari, Jakarta-Kupang, Jakarta-Jambi, Denpasar- Mataram, Shanghai-Denpasar, Surabaya-Hong Kong and Denpasar-Hong Kong.

 In July, Garuda Indonesia will also operate Jakarta – Sydney and Jakarta – Melbourne services as well as Denpasar – Brisbane in November.
