National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia has been rated the “Best International Airline” for the period August 2011 to July 2012, according to a survey carried out by Australian market research company, Roy Morgan.
The survey involved 4,530 respondents, who were asked to give their opinions on the products and services provided by various different global airlines, Garuda Indonesia spokesman Pujobroto stated on Monday.
“In the survey, Garuda Indonesia scored the highest, with 90 percent, along with Singapore Airlines.
Our score was higher than those of other airlines, such as Air New Zealand, Emirates Airline and Thai Airways,” he said as quoted by Antara news agency.
In July, Garuda Indonesia was also named “The World’s Best Airline” and “The Best Regional Airline in Asia” by London-based airline rating agency, Skytrax.
Travelling with Garuda is always a pleasure nowadays — congratulations to Garuda on once again getting such a high accolade, well deserved.
Indonesia should be justly proud of its world class airline. Now for other state owned institutions to follow the lead that Garuda has set.
Yes, flying with Garuda is now a pleasure! It shows what can be done with a state owned company under good management with dedicated staff implementing a good business plan.
It should be a role model for other state owned companies.
It is news with positive and optimistic nuances that I really adore, being extremely tired of following the ever-growing corruption cases in this country.
Bravo Garuda for your great achievement!
I am proud of you.
