Executive vice president marketing and sales of Garuda Indonesia Erik Meijer commented: “We are very pleased to be able to add London to our extensive global network. There are strong business, educational and cultural ties between Indonesia and the UK, and we believe this new service will further boost those activities amongst two countries, whilst offering easier access for travelers from UK to Indonesia, which now is one of the fastest economic growth centre in the world.”
