Garuda's first Indonesia-India flight gets off ground
Jakarta, December 8, 2016

Garuda Indonesia will launch the first direct connection between Indonesia and India when it begins Jakarta-Mumbai flights, via Bangkok, from December 12.


Utilising a Boeing 738 aircraft in a two-class configuration, the thrice-weekly service will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.



With the Mumbai service, Garuda Indonesia now adds the Indian subcontinent to its network.


Apart from boosting trade between the two countries, the new route is expected to drive inbound tourism to Indonesia from India. Indonesia is currently one of the largest markets to India with 350,000 people currently travelling to the region on both business and leisure.
