National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia alongside its low-cost subsidiary Citilink Indonesia and partner Sriwijaya Air Group has launched a new feature that allows passengers to book flight tickets in their preferred currency.

Applicable on the carriers' website as well as mobile application, among the currencies available to choose from by international travelers during the initial phase are the baht, euro, yen, Hong Kong dollar, British pound, Singaporean dollar, United States dollar and Australian dollar.

More currencies will be added to the list this year.
