NATIONAL airline Garuda Indonesia provides discounted ticket prices through the Garuda Indonesia Online Travel Fair (GOTF) 2023 to boost the tourism sector.

“With many holidays such as school holidays, and especially Eid, this is an opportunity that we are trying to accommodate for the public to travel more cheaply, this is also Garuda’s commitment to provide positive distribution to the Indonesian tourism sector,” said Garuda Indonesia Commercial Services Director Ade R. Susardi, at a press conference in Jakarta, Monday (03/20) evening.

Taking place online from March 27 to April 2, 2023, this year’s GOTF offers discounted flight tickets with a travel time span until April 27, 2024 with a wide selection of domestic and international flight routes. Garuda provides discounts of up to 15% for domestic routes and 18% for international routes.

Garuda Indonesia also provides an additional discount of up to IDR2,500,000 for consumers who transact using credit, debit and Livin’ Mandiri cards from Bank Mandiri. In addition, they also provide a discount promotion of up to 80% for baggage booking and excess baggage during GOTF.

Garuda Indonesia provides offers for GarudaMiles club members including bonus mileage points for new members who register during GOTF 2023 and mileage redemption promotions.

In line with Garuda Indonesia, Bank Mandiri as a partner of GOTF 2023 also encourages the economic recovery of the tourism and creative economy sectors and provides wider benefits to the community, especially business actors in that field.

“We hope that the existence of GOTF 2023 will encourage economic recovery in the tourism and creative economy sectors, after the revocation of PPKM in all regions of Indonesia is a moment for the revival of domestic tourism this year,” said Bank Mandiri Senior Deputy Executive Director Josephus Triprakoso.

Offers on the GOTF 2023 program can be accessed online through the “Fly Garuda” application, the official Garuda Indonesia website and a number of travel platforms that partner with GOTF 2023. [antaranews]
