Garuda Indonesia plans to launch 3 new routes connecting Ambon in Maluku to three other cities in Maluku and North Maluku Islands in order to enhance its network in eastern Indonesia.
The Indonesia airline carrier will be linking Ambon with Langgur, Saumlaki and Ternate using a French Italian turboprop plane ATR 72-600 that has a passenger capacity of 70. Each route will fly daily.
With the new flight services, people would be connected to major cities in the archipelago. A Garuda spokesperson indicated that this was in line with efforts to help the government create new economic centres in remote areas.
Just recently, Garuda announced that it has signed a code-share agreement with Myanmar Airways.
Garuda's stock price closed at 540IDR, up almost 10.20%.
