Garuda cuts Tokyo, Brisbane, Nagoya, re-adjusts London

13 Jan 2015 by Clement Huang

In an effort to save costs, Indonesian flag carrier Garuda Indonesia has cut the following routes from now through to March 29:

Denpasar – Brisbane (effective Feb 1)

Denpasar – Tokyo Haneda

Jakarta – Nagoya

Jakarta – Tokyo Narita

Garuda will announce at an unspecified time in the future whether it will reinstate the routes after March.

Meanwhile, it has decided to re-adjust its operations on the Jakarta – Amsterdam – London (Gatwick) route. Originally slated to go daily from July 1, the airline will instead continue with a five-weekly schedule.

In other news, the Skyteam member will reduce the number of business class seats on-board its aircraft. As such, the B737-800 short- and medium-haul fleet will see the number of premium seats upfront reduced from 12 to eight. A decision on the number of cuts to the wide-body A330s and B777s in Garuda’s fleet is expected by month-end.
