About Garuda Indonesia
Garuda Indonesia is proud to be the National Airline of Indonesia, introducing the hospitality and culture of Indonesia to travellers worldwide, and linking the archipelago of islands to the major cities of Indonesia, Asia and the world.
Founded in 1949, the airline has a distinguished history of service, beginning with a flight from Jakarta to Yogyakarta by Douglas DC3 Dakota.
Today Garuda Indonesia is expanding rapidly, and fulfilling its vision to become one the world's finest airlines.
The ambitious aircraft fleet renewal will see 150 aircraft in service by 2015, including brand new Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft, offering a new capability for non-stop flights between Indonesia and Europe.
Medium range flights will continue to be served by wide-bodied Airbus A330 jets, with short-range and domestic flights operated by a large and expanding fleet of Boeing 737-800 "Next Generation", and Bombardier CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft.
The new aircraft fleet already features audio and video on demand entertainment throughout the network; flat-bed seats in Executive Class on medium and long haul routes and cool LED "mood" lighting even on short-haul flights. With the introduction of the new B777, Garuda Indonesia will introduce a new Super First Class service, including fully enclosed "Oasis" seating units.
Results from the current investment programme are already being recognised by passengers and industry leaders alike. Independent airline quality consultants, Skytrax, has confirmed that Garuda Indonesia has achieved its coveted five-star rating for all classes of inflight service, joining only six other airline worldwide to achieve this accolade.
We look forward to welcoming you on board!
