Delta Air Lines and Garuda Indonesia have signed a codesharing agreement.

The deal will allow Garuda to place its code on Delta operated flights from Tokyo (Haneda) International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

The flights will be timed to connect Garuda Indonesia's flights between Jakarta and Tokyo-Haneda, offering both airlines' customers one-stop travel between Indonesia and the U.S..

The codeshare flights are pending final government approvals and are targeted to be available for purchase in July 2014.

"The partnership between Delta Air Lines and Garuda Indonesia expands the options available for travel between the United States and Indonesia, supporting increased trade and commercial links and greater people-to-people ties in both countries," said U.S. Ambassador Robert Blake. "This relationship is one more example of the growing ties between businesses and people under the U.S.-Indonesia Comprehensive Partnership."

The codeshare flights, operated with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, feature full-flat bed seats with direct aisle access in BusinessElite, Economy Comfort seating and inflight entertainment in every seat throughout the aircraft.

Delta's BusinessElite service includes a five-course gourmet meal, paired with a wine menu curated by Master Sommelier, Andrea Robinson.

The inflight experience is completed with Westin Heavenly In-Flight bedding, which includes exclusively designed pillows and comforters, as well as Tumi amenity kits with products from Malin+Goetz.

To perfectly match this in-flight experience, Garuda Indonesia will operate its Airbus A330-300 for the Jakarta - Haneda route. These aircraft feature a two class premium layout, with 36 seats in Business Class that convert to full flat beds and the award-winning extra spacious Economy cabin with an average seat pitch of 33-34 inches and personal inflight entertainment in every seat.

Erik Meijer, EVP Marketing & Sales Garuda Indonesia, said, "This partnership is part of Garuda's strategy to enhance its network worldwide, especially to the United States ... We are now starting this partnership with two very popular destinations in the US, Los Angeles and Seattle; both very popular with Indonesian travellers. I am certain that Garuda Indonesia and Delta will soon be able to add more destinations and flights to this agreement to further increase choices for passengers on both sides. Indonesia is one of the world's most popular holiday destinations and has now become much easier to reach for people in the U.S. through this new cooperation between our companies. And of course we should also not forget the important contribution this will have to the development of economic, business, social, and cultural activities in Indonesia, the United States, and beyond."
