Flights from Singapore to Surabaya by Garuda Indonesia

From 19 July 2013 Garuda Indonesia will start flights from Surabaya to Singapore, Garuda’s busiest destination outside of Indonesia. With the addition of this new four times weekly service, the airline will operate over 80 weekly flights from Singapore to five Indonesian destinations: Bali, Jakarta, Makassar, Balikpapan and Surabaya.

To celebrate the launch of the new Singapore - Surabaya flights, Garuda Indonesia is now running a sale valid until 8 August 2013 for travel from 19 July to 9 August 2013. The return flights in economy class are on sale from S$265 with terms and conditions apply.

Surabaya  is Indonesia's second-largest city with a population of over 3.1 million (7-9 million in the metropolitan area), and the capital of the province of East Java. Other than Garuda Indonesia, budget carrier Jetstar and Singapore Airline's regional arm SilkAir operates non-stop flights from Singapore to Surabaya.

Flights from Singapore to Bali are also expanding with a new four times weekly service from 19 July and introduce the addition of a ninth daily flight between Singapore and Jakarta starting 18 August.

"Southeast Asia is an important region and Singapore in particular is a key growth market for Garuda Indonesia. We are constantly looking to improve our flight offerings to provide Singapore travellers better connectivity into Indonesia,” said Nicodemus Lampe, Vice President, Area Asia, Garuda Indonesia. “With these new services, we aim to increase our passenger appeal and are confident that we will be able to capture a larger share of the market, in line with Garuda Indonesia’s ‘Quantum Leap’ strategy of becoming one the most profitable airlines in Asia.”

The new route and developments will be supported by a fleet of Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft featuring upgraded on-board services such as individual touch-screen LCD TVs throughout Executive and Economy Classes with Video on Demand entertainment systems.
