The national airline Garuda Indonesia is scheduled to commence direct non-stop daily service between Jakarta and Amsterdam in May 2014.

The new service, bypassing traditional technical stops in the Middle East, will be made possible with the delivery of new Boeing 777-300s. quotes the deputy-director of marketing at Garuda, Djunaidi Satrio, said in Bali on Saturday, March 15, 2014, “Next month, our newly ordered airport will arrive and begin operations in May.”

The Boeing 777-300 aircraft will fly the non-stop stretch from the Indonesian capital to Amsterdam in 12 hours.

Satrio said the new aircraft part of the Airline’s Quantum Leap transformation that includes 27 new airplanes on order by Garuda Indonesia set to arrive in 2014. The new planes coming on line include two Boeing 777-300s, four Airbus 330s, twelve Boeing 737-800s, three CRJs and six ATR 72-600s.

Garuda Indonesia
is also eager to tap into the Chinese travel market. The general manager for Garuda in Beijing, Asa Perkasa, outlined how 100 million Chinese citizens are expected make an overseas trip this year.
