The Garuda low-price subsidiary Citilink will soon add eight Airbus A-320 aircraft.
Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Benny S. Butarbutar, Citilink’s vice-president for corporate communications, said the planes would arrive commencing in June through the end of 2014.
Citilink's current armada consists of 24 airplanes operating a route network that is 95% composed of domestic destinations within Indonesia. The new Airbus A-320 acquisition will bring the fleet size to 32.
Butarbutar told Bisnis.com that Citilink is busily adding new planes, new routes and new software-based booking innovations.
He disclosed that 60% of Citilink’s ticket sales take place via travel agent and sales outlets at Alfamart, Indomart and 52 Carrefour outlets across Indonesia.
He went on to explain that the market segment served by Citilink is composed of middle-class and lower customers who purchase the airlines low-cost but not necessarily cheap tickets.
