Garuda Indonesia – the National flag carrier has announced that it will continue to open new routes to remote regions of the Country to provide air connections to all corners of Indonesia and help develop the Republic’s economy.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the CEO of Garuda, Emirsyah Satar,  told a public meeting in Bali on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, “We have already managed to open new routes previously unserved by Garuda."

For flight to remote areas of the Country Garuda is using ATR72-600 aircraft, planes that are highly suitable in serving airports with short runways.

Emirsyah continued: “We have recently opened flight routes to Labuan Bajo (Flores and Komodo) and Tambaloka (Sumba).”

“As a State-Owned Company (BUMN)” Emirsyah said, “we are committed to assist the Masterplan for the Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia's Economic Development( MP3EI).”

To this end, Garuda will bring six more ATR72-600 aircraft into its fleet in 2014, doubling the size of its fleet of short take-off and landing planes.

The new planes will allow Garuda to fly to new destinations, including Luuk, Bau-bau and Wangi-wangi in southeast Sulawesi.

“I hope that the opening of these new routes will make tourism sites that were previous inaccessible now within the reach of tourist visitors and will hasten the development of regional economies,” Emirsyah Satar concluded.
