Garuda Indonesia has begun to take delivery of its new Airbus A330 aircraft as part of its fleet modernisation efforts.
Indonesia’s national carrier placed an order for 18 new A330-300s and the first of these aircraft, powered by Rolls Royce Trent 700 engines, have now arrived. The new aircraft form a major element in the airline’s fleet modernisation programme. “The A330 has been a key element in the success of Garuda Indonesia,” Garuda Indonesia president and chief executive Emirsyah Satar said. “It remains one of the most efficient aircraft types on the market today and is a firm favourite with our passengers, offering the highest levels of in-flight comfort.”
The A330-300s feature a two class premium layout, including 36 full flat beds in Business Class.
Garuda Indonesia will operate the aircraft from its hubs in Jakarta and Denpasar (Bali) to destinations across Asia, the Middle East and the Pacific.
