Garuda targets 17 million passengers this year

Garuda Indonesia is aiming to carry more than 17 million passengers in 2011, a substantial increase on the 14 million carried in 2010. In order to hit this target the airline will enhance customer services, such as in-flight meals, to appeal to more fliers. Quoted in the Jakarta Post, Garuda’s Commercial Director Agus Priyanto said that delivering a better service worked better than offering cheaper ticket prices. “As long as we give a satisfactory service, the price gap of between IDR100,000 (US$11.3) and IDR200,000 will not be a problem,” he said. The airline expects most interest to come from domestic passengers and it will be increasing its visibility with sales booths in shopping centres across the country.
