When asked why are the charters to Bali only, VP Garuda explained that althoughGaruda continues to promote other Indonesian destinations like Lombok, Makassar and Manado, however, for now it seems that the market still prefers to travel to Bali.  

Besides the seasonal charters, Garuda Indonesia continues to operate its regular flights which are 4 flights weekly between Beijing-Jakarta, 7 flights weekly between Shanghai-Jakarta, 7 times weekly between Guangzhou – Jakarta and 3 flights weekly between Beijing-Bali.

With the chartered flights, Garuda Indonesia will hopefully see its load factor increase two-folds, he said.  China is a potential market, with almost 100 million of its population traveling abroad every year, he said.
