Garuda Indonesia Launches Singapore - Medan Flights

Garuda Indonesia has launched flights between Singapore and Medan.

Flights will be operated daily with a two-class Garuda's Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

 Flights to Singapore will depart Kualanamu International Airport at 13:30 and arrive at Changi Airport at 16:00 local time.

 From Changi, the flight will depart at 11:15 and arrive at Kualanamu International Airport at 11:45 local time.

"We believe this new service will stimulate growth of business and trade in the region, more so as Medan is strategically located as the gateway to Sumatera and the rest of Indonesia's western regions," said President & CEO Garuda Indonesia M. Arif Wibowo. "The new service will offer passengers a wider choice of destinations as well as greater flexibility and convenience when travelling between Singapore and cities in Sumatera, such as Palembang, Banda Aceh, Sabang, Lheuksmawe, Gunung Sitoli, and Pinangsori."

Lake Toba is one of the main attractions when visiting Medan.

Indonesia's Minister of Tourism Arief Yahya, said, "Toba is the largest and deepest volcanic lake in the world. Lake Toba is a giant caldera, with crater formed by the eruption of a super volcano 74,000 years ago. Experts believe that huge explosion of Toba volcano was the largest in the last 2 million years, and had triggered a dramatic volcanic storm. As an attraction, Lake Toba is a very distinctive, world-class natural landscape."

To celebrate the launch, Garuda Indonesia is running a promotion on all-in economy fares from Singapore to Medan from Sin$108 for one way trips and Sin$188 for return flights.

 Business class tickets are also on sale from Sin$328 one-way and Sin$538 for a return.
