Business class travelers will be able to enjoy the comfort of Boeing’s Dreamliner aircraft on their flights from London to Jakarta.
Garuda is also expected to launch flights between Jakarta and Los Angeles in 2014 using its new Boeing 777 Dreamliners.
The Indonesian flag carrier Garuda Indonesia took the delivery of its first Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in July 2013. The airplane is expected to serve the airline’s upcoming non-stop direct route between London Gatwick and Jakarta later this year.
The airline’s 777s feature 8 first-class suites, 38 business-class seats and 268 seats in economy.
Flying on a business class ticket will enable travelers to enjoy luxurious features including fully-flat bed seats, direct aisle access from each seat, 73-inch seat pitch, an Audio Video on Demand (AVOD) in-flight entertainment system with a 15-inch touch screen display and a “new cuisine concept” with 3 menu choices.
The aircraft will also offer in-flight WiFi Internet and GSM cellular connectivity.
Garuda has ordered a total of 10 Boeing 777-300ERs as part of its Quantum Leap fleet revitalization program.
