Garuda Indonesia reinstates Jakarta–Haneda service

17 Jun 2014 by Clement Huang

Garuda Indonesia has reinstated its Jakarta–Haneda service after more than 30 years.

The single daily service sees flight GA874 depart Jakarta at 1305 and touch down in Haneda at 2235. On the return leg, GA875 takes off from Haneda at 0030 before arriving back in Jakarta at 0600.

The direct service complements Garuda’s existing daily Bali Denpasar–Tokyo Haneda operation. For the Jakarta–Haneda route, the carrier deploys an Airbus A330-300 that features a two-class configuration with 36 seats in business and 215 in economy.

Garuda Indonesia president chief executive Emirsyah Satar pointed out that the new route connects the Indonesian capital to a wider codeshare network. “The service allows Garuda Indonesia passengers to continue their journey to other cities in Japan with connecting All Nippon Airways flights, or eventually to the United States with codeshare Delta Air Lines flights,” said Satar.

Garuda Indonesia currently codeshares with ANA on flights to various Japanese destinations including Fukuoka, Sapporo and Okinawa. In addition, the airline also places its carrier code on Delta’s flights to Los Angeles and Seattle. All services depart through Tokyo-Haneda.

With the opening of the Jakarta–Haneda service, Garuda Indonesia currently operates 39 weekly flights to Japan, with the other routes being Jakarta–Osaka (Kansai), Denpasar–Osaka (Kansai), Jakarta–Tokyo (Narita), Denpasar–Tokyo (Narita) and Denpasar–Tokyo (Haneda).
