Garuda Indonesia announced it will increase flights on the Sydney to Jakarta route to keep up with growing demand.
The airline said it would add four extra flights per week, increasing it from three to seven per week, Spice News reported.
According to the source, its decision to add extra trips on the route came after passenger capacity from Sydney to Jakarta surpassed capacity to Bali by up to ten percent in November and December last year.
Garuda Indonesia senior Australia general manager Bagus Y Siregar said the airline’s decision to add flights on the route demonstrates its support in tourism to Jakarta.
“We foresee that… with daily services from Sydney to Jakarta we will provide our customers with endless opportunity for travel and encourage the continued growth of Jakarta not only as popular Indonesian destination but as Asia’s newest gateway to the globe,” he said.
The carrier also recently said it would increase its trips between Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta this month, using the Boeing 737-800NG to service the route.
