Garuda Indonesia will launch new routes to France and Germany this year, it has been reported.
Indonesia’s Antara news agency quoted the airline’s finance director, IGN Askhara Dananiputra, as confirming the plans this week. The new routes, from Jakarta to Paris and Frankfurt, are expected to commence in the second and third quarters of 2015, after Garuda takes delivery of more long-range Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
Garuda currently operates six B777s, all of which come fitted with 314 seats in three classes, making them the largest aircraft in Garuda’s fleet. A further four B777s still due to be delivered to the airline.
