Garuda Indonesia Explores Two New China-Bound Routes

National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia is exploring two new routes to China to add to its existing three routes to the country, in response to increasing tourist traffic between Indonesia and China.

“We are exploring now two new tourist destinations in China, namely Chengdu and Chongqing. This will be in line with Garuda’s commitment to supporting more traffic of tourists from and to China,” the Beijing manager of Garuda Indonesia, Asa Perkasa, said in Beijing on Thursday.

He made the statement after the opening of Garuda’s new Beijing office.

Asa said the airline was currently serving the Jakarta-Beijing route five times a week and the Jakarta-Shanghai and the Jakarta-Guangzhou routes every day.

He said Airbus planes were used to serve the Jakarta-Beijing route and Boeing 737-800 aircrafts were used for the other two routes.

Garuda is also planning to employ Chinese flight attendants, in addition to Indonesian crew members, for the China-bound routes in order to bring “more Chinese-Indonesian nuance,” Asa said. (Antara)
