National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia is set to hold an online travel fair from Nov. 23 to 29 through its digital channel.
Partnering with Bank BRI, the 3rd installment of this year's Garuda Indonesia Online Travel Fair (GOTF) will offer various domestic and international tickets at interesting prices through the airline's microsite, website, mobile app using "GOTF" promo code, and contact centers.
According to a statement on Thursday, the attractive prices will start on Nov. 23 at midnight local time. Meanwhile, additional discounts from Bank BRI will be applicable during a "Happy Hour" period every day at 9 a.m. and 8 p.m.
"Since GOTF can be easily accessed by all, including foreign tourists, it fully supports the development of national tourism," said Tourism Minister Arief Yahya.
The carrier's commercial director Pikri Ilham Kurniansyah shared that the upcoming event would particularly highlight domestic routes such as Denpasar, Manado, Labuan Bajo, Sorong, Wangi-wangi, Kendari and Yogyakarta, as well as international routes such as Korea, Japan, Amsterdam, India, Melbourne, Sydney and Singapore.

"GOTF is part of Garuda Indonesia's efforts to answer the challenge of the rise of millennials or the digital native generation as the new travel trend. It is estimated that in 2020 the millennial generation will be the biggest in Indonesia, and it will reach 70 percent of the total Indonesian population in 2030," said Pikri.
Among the attractive prices set to be offered at GOTF are Jakarta-Denpasar return tickets starting at Rp 1.14 million (US$78.17), Jakarta-Labuan Bajo Rp 1.405 million, Jakarta-Yogyakarta Rp 780,000, Jakarta-Singapore Rp 1.564 million, Jakarta-Tokyo Rp 4.413 million and Jakarta-Melbourne Rp 5.508 million.
Pikri added that GOTF would be accessible to all customers in Indonesia as well as all the airline's international destinations, such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, Japan, Korea, China, the Netherlands and the Middle East.
Held since 2016, GOTF will this year also collaborate with Garuda Indonesia's low-cost subsidiary Citilink, Garuda Indonesia Holiday and Aerowisata, as well as its partners such as Allianz, Swiss-Belhotel International, Agoda, Parador, Blibli.com, Bhinneka, Klook and Passpod. (kes)
