National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia’s low-cost subsidiary, Citilink, is set to open new international routes to Frankfurt and Jeddah at the end of this year.
"Frankfurt and Jeddah are among the potential [destinations] that will be developed. We will open [new services there] starting October and December (respectively]," said Citilink Indonesia president director Juliandra Nurtjahjo in Jakarta on Sunday as quoted by tempo.co.
Following the opening of the aforementioned routes, the company will reportedly expand its network to other cities in Australia and Vietnam.
Juliandra said Citilink would be the first low-cost carrier to fly its international passengers on the Airbus A330-900 NEO.
Able to take a 13,000-kilometer-long journey, the aircraft is said to be able to accommodate 42 premium economy and 323 economy class seats. (ayr/kes)
