Aviationweek.com reports that among the ambitious expansion plans by the Indonesian national carrier Garuda is the launching of new services to Russia.
Garuda has ten Boeing 777-300ERs on order scheduled to begin arriving in mid-2013.
Garuda has said the new aircraft will be used to fly between Indonesia and Tokyo and to the Middle East. Middle East flights by Garuda Indonesia are presently served by two Boeing 747-400s that will eventually be phased out of the airline’s fleet.
Quoting a spokesman from the airline, “We will go to Tokyo and the Middle East first with the 777s, but maybe later on, when more 777s are delivered to Garuda, we will launch services to cities in Russia, such as Moscow.”
Other destinations that Garuda wishes to serve with the Boeing 777-300ERs are Amsterdam, other European capitals and the U.S.A..
