Garuda Indonesia to connect Chennai-Medan daily from April next year

Indonesia's flag carrier, Garuda Indonesia will start flying daily on the Chennai-Medan route from April, 2008, Dharmendra Gursahani, Director, SMD Travel Corporation, which has been newly appointed as the airline's General Sales Agent (GSA) in India, confirmed with TravelBiz Monitor. The airline will deploy a B737-500 aircraft with a configuration of 84 seats in the economy class and 12 seats in the business class. "The airline will connect Chennai to Medan and fly onward to Singapore. Indian passengers will also be able to opt for connecting flights from Medan to Denpasar and Jakarta," informed Gursahani.

The airline had been looking to start operations on the route since quite some time but was not able to materialise its plan due to lack of aircraft. In the past few months, airline officials had been holding multiple meetings with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), India. Indonesia Tourism also recently increased its marketing and promotion activities in the India market, including hosting a delegation of Indian travel agents at Medan, earlier this year. "Indonesia Tourism will have an important part to play in boosting the passenger traffic from India since most of Garuda Indonesia's passengers are tourists," added Gursahani.
