Garuda from London

A World Travel Market regular, Garuda Indonesia announced at the show that it will increase its Gatwick to Jakarta service to daily flights, up from the current five times a week using Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

The service started on 8 September and goes via Amsterdam. 

Garuda refused to be drawn on the possibilities of flying to Indonesia non-stop, an idea suggested at the launch.  At around 15 hours it would easily be the longest direct flight from the UK to any destination worldwide.

First Class seating is in suite-style, featuring eight fully-flat beds in enclosed private spaces.  Executive Class is in a 1+2+1 setting, offering 38 fully-flat beds.  Economy Class seats 268 passengers in a 3+3+3 set-up.  www.garuda-indonesia.com
