Garuda upgrades KL-Jakarta service with new aircraft
National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia will soon upgrade its service between Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur, increasing passenger capacity by up to 40% and flying the new Boeing 737-800 Next Generation (738NG) aircraft.
The new aircraft, beginning service next month, feature individual LCD touch screens in Executive and Economy Classes with video on demand (VOD) entertainment systems with a wide selection of video and audio programming.
Garuda currently flies KL-Jakarta twice daily, a service especially popular with business travelers and Malaysian golfers. The airline is offering special value added services to these travelers with flights leaving KL at 8:00am and departing Jakarta 5:10pm (and others leaving KL 12:45pm & departing Jakarta next morning at 8:45am), plus special luggage provisions excluding golf bags from allowed weight. Executive Class passengers will also have access to fast-track immigration procedures to further streamline the experience.
