Garuda returns to Europe

Indonesia’s national airline, Garuda Indonesia, has taken the first step in rebuilding its long-haul international network with the launch of a new daily service from Jakarta to Amsterdam via Dubai and has awarded a Europe-wide cargo GSA contract to European Cargo Services (ECS).

The airline plans to extend operations to Frankfurt, London, Paris and Rome over the next few years.

ECS will now market the 14 tonnes of capacity available each day on Garuda’s Airbus A330-200 flights ex Amsterdam Schiphol and expects to generate some 5,200 tonnes of freight per annum for the airline.

In addition to the Netherlands, other major cargo generating markets for Garuda include France, Germany and Scandinavia.
