Garuda Indonesia added two routes, one domestic and one international, to its network in the course of last week. On 6 November, the carrier commenced operations on the 700-kilometre route from Batam (BTH), the free trade zone located south of Singapore, to Bandar Lampung (TKG) in south-eastern Sumatra. Daily flights are offered on the route and operated using CRJ 1000s. In addition, on 8 November, the Indonesian carrier resumed operations on the 5,400-kilometre route from Jakarta (CGK) to Osaka Kansai (KIX), which it last operated nearly 15 years ago. Four weekly services are offered on the route and operated using A330-200s. Garuda Indonesia already serves the Japanese airport with daily services from Denpasar in Bali.
