Garuda Indonesia is preparing to cancel its last remaining self-operated European service to Amsterdam.
An official announcement from the Amsterdam office of Garuda has confirmed that effective November 01, 2004 the airline will stop flying to Amsterdam. Service is being phased out gradually with flight frequencies reducing to three times a week for the month of September and to twice a week for October – the last month of operation for the service.
The same announcement told of other cutbacks in the Airline's operations including the route from Bali to Taipei and Seoul which is set to stop on November 01 and the Jakarta-Shanghai service which will reportedly not operate in September and October.
One Garuda Indonesia ranking source said the airline hopes conditions in the marketplace and the airline improve sufficiently to allow the airline to resume its Amsterdam flights with the 2005 Summer schedule.
Passengers holding confirmed tickets on any of the confirmed sectors are being re-assigned to other carriers by Garuda Indonesia.
