To celebrate their 21st anniversary of operations, Garuda Indonesia is offering 50 per cent discounts on all flights from March 31 to April 13. The latest raft of offers forms part of the airline’s ongoing pledge to support Indonesia’s tourism industry.
The discount is available for purchases made through the Garuda Online Travel Festival, online travel agents, mobile apps, Link Aja and the official website of the airline: www.garuda-indonesia.com.
In February, Indonesian President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo called on the country’s airlines to lower prices and make air travel more cost-effective and available to all. Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan has also suggested that the government invite private companies into the jet fuel or avtur business to create more competition and thereby lower prices.
“Lowering the airfares is Garuda Indonesia’s consistent commitment to making its 5-star service affordable for all,” confirmed Pikri Ilham Kurniansyah, who is Garuda Indonesia’s commerce director. He added that Garuda Indonesia will continue to offer discounted flights, and advised travellers to book their tickets in advance to access the discounted routes.
Garuda Indonesia is the national airline of Indonesia. Headquartered at Soekarno–Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, near Jakarta, it was given a 5-star rating airline by Skytrax in 2014 and has since won the prestigious “World’s Best Cabin Crew” award for five consecutive years. Indonesia’s flag carrier connects the country to more than 90 destinations worldwide, offering more than 600 daily flights that bring travellers to the archipelago and connect them to a wide range of destinations when they get here.
