UPDATE: Now available after 26OCT14.
GARUDA Indonesia is set to upgrade flights to and from Denpasar Bali from 01 September 2014.
A daily Airbus A330-300 product will now feature on the evening GA728/GA727 service arriving at 2200hrs. The return flight will depart Perth at 0720hrs in the morning, the next day.
The current GA726/729 service will be culled from the same date as an increased capacity is deemed enough to meet demand and warrants just a daily service.
The Perth – Jakarta service will remain at 4-weekly operation using Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft.
Garuda operates a total of seven Airbus A330-300s and has an additional 17 of the type on order (to be delivered throughout 2014).
The A330-300 comes in one configuration only, featuring 257 seats in total – 42 in Executive (Business) Class and 215 seats in Economy Class.
Executive Class is in a 2-2-2 set-up and offers fully-flat bed-type seating. Economy Class is in a 2-4-2 setting, extending a generous 34 inch pitch to passengers.
There are PTVs with AVOD at every seat.
