Garuda Adds Seats Between Jakarta & Bali

Effective 22 March 2020, Garuda Indonesia is now deploying only wide-body aircraft on its Jakarta-Denpasar route. 

The move is intended to support Bali’s tourism revitalization by providing more seat capacity between the Indonesian Capital City and Denpasar, Bali. 

As reported by the wide-body aircraft to be used by Garuda Indonesia on its Bali route are comprised of Boeing B777-300ER (314 seats across three classes or 393 passengers in a two-class configuration), Airbus A330-200 (222 passengers), Airbus A330-300 (287 passengers), and Airbus A330-900 NEO (301 passengers).

The wide-body aircraft will replace Boeing 737-800 NG (162 passengers) now flown by Garuda Indonesia on the Jakarta-Bali route. 

The CEO of Garuda Indonesia, Irfan Setiaputra, commenting on the decision to move to wide-body aircraft on the Jakarta-Bali route, said the operational decision to use wide-body aircraft on the popular air route is made to maximize public access to the National Carrier’s services and strengthen Garuda’s market segment hold on flights to Indonesia’s national tourism gateway.

“This step will optimize access and is in line with our commitment to implement physical distancing during flights, which is the main focus of the value of Garuda Indonesia’s flight services during this new habit adaptation period,” said Irfan.

Adding: “We hope that by operating wide-body aircraft, we can create added value for all passengers in keeping with Garuda Indonesia’s efforts to provide safe and comfortable flight services by always prioritizing flight services that implement health protocols in all parts of its operations.” 

Garuda currently flies 56 round-trip flights each week between Jakarta and Denpasar for a total of 104 flights.
