PT GARUDA Indonesia Tbk cooperates with the private sector to increase the number of passengers on their planes by providing a number of value-added trips that ensure safety and other special benefits.

According to the President Director of Garuda Indonesia, Irfan Setiaputra in a webinar on Thursday (9/23) said for us at Garuda Indonesia, flight services that are safe, comfortable and reliable are a manifestation of this commitment.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, Irfan said there was a change in people’s preferences in carrying out trips, where passengers paid more attention to aspects of health security and travel comfort,” he said.

He explained, we believe that safe travel is an important aspect that will restore the confidence of prospective passengers to return to travel. Together with Traveloka, Garuda Indonesia brings added value to prospective passengers, especially in this new adaptation period through various end-to-end exclusive offers in the #JamTerbangGaruda program.

“Garuda Indonesia launched the #JamTerbangGaruda program with Traveloka and at the same time introduced the Traveloka Garuda Flyers Club, which is Garuda Indonesia’s first loyalty program with a booking platform,” Irfan noted.

He added that in addition to providing special benefits to Traveloka and Garuda Indonesia consumers, this collaborative initiative also allows consumers to enjoy a safe and comfortable trip in the pandemic era from departing to returning to their place of origin.

“In the #JamTerbangGaruda program which takes place from September 23 to October 3, 2021, consumers can enjoy discounted flight ticket prices, airport transfers in the destination city and airport lounge access at Soekarno-Hatta Airport in collaboration with the airport management. This variety of additional facilities is expected to increase the level of public confidence in traveling, so that it can make a positive contribution to the recovery of the country’s travel and tourism sector,” he remarked.

We believe, Irfan continued that this initiative with Traveloka will be an important milestone in our commitment to make a positive contribution to the sustainability of the national tourism industry through strategic collaborations carried out between air transportation service providers along with travel ticket booking platforms in presenting a safe, comfortable and value-added travel experience for consumers.

“In line with Garuda Indonesia’s service philosophy, namely #BecauseYouMatter, Garuda Indonesia continues to strive to understand the needs of passengers. We hope that this collaboration with Traveloka can also strengthen the existence of Garuda Indonesia to continue to grow with all tourism industry ecosystem players to be able to answer the challenges of the new normal era by continuing to move adaptively and be able to answer the needs of service users in this new normal era,” Irfan concluded.
