The Indonesian flag carrier announced on Twitter that its Jakarta-Amsterdam route will be changed to Denpasar-Kualanamu-Amsterdam.
Garuda Indonesia looks set to make changes to its direct Jakarta–Amsterdam route. Announcing on its official Twitter account, the Indonesian flag carrier said: “Starting October 1, 2019, Jakarta-Amsterdam flights will be diverted to Denpasar-Amsterdam via Kualanamu.”
Previously, the airline had made changes to its London route by adding an additional stop at Kualanamu, Medan.
Pikri Ilham Kurniansyah, Garuda Indonesia’s commerce director, says that this move aims to support the government’s initiatives in promoting tourism in Medan.
He added: “We also hope that connecting Medan with London destinations will further introduce the advantages of Indonesia’s priority tourism potential in Medan and its surroundings, such as the natural beauty of Lake Toba tourism.”
Come late October, the carrier also plans to replace the Airbus A330-200 currently serving the London-Denpasar route with the Airbus A330neo.
