Garuda Indonesia said it will introduce a five-times a week Jakarta-Nagoya service in April 2015 using A330-200 aircraft, to meet market demand and broaden its flight network in Japan as part of its international network expansion programme. President & CEO Garuda Indonesia Emirsyah Satar said that reopening the Nagoya route was a strategy to expand the Garuda network to Japan and beyond. “Japan is very important to Garuda Indonesia. For more than 50 years, Garuda Indonesia has shown its support towards the diplomatic relations between Indonesia and Japan – especially in increasing economic, tourism and social activities between the two countries,” added Satar.
Japan is an important market for Garuda , specifically the province of Aichi prefecture which is known as a centre for the automotive and aviation industry in Japan, as well as for its beautiful scenery. “Aichi Prefecture and Japan is a market with huge potential particularly business and leisure passengers. Hopefully this cooperation will further strengthen the good relations between the two countries, in terms of improving economic relations, trade and tourism between the two countries,” Satar added.
Garuda currently serves 39 weekly flights to Japan, including the Jakarta-Osaka (Kansai), Denpasar-Osaka (Kansai), Jakarta-Tokyo (Narita), Denpasar-Tokyo (Narita), Denpasar- Tokyo (Haneda), and Jakarta-Tokyo (Haneda). Garuda Indonesia also has an established codeshare agreement with ANA-All Nippon Airways and connections to the US can also be made through its codeshare with Delta Airlines.
