Citilink Indonesia to Introduce Flights to Frankfurt and Jeddah

1 July 2019 08:47 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Low-cost carrier Citilink is reportedly preparing to expand its business by introducing two long-haul international flights in 2019’s final quarter.

The Garuda Indonesia subsidiary’s president director Juliandra Nurtjahjo announced long-haul flights to Frankfurt and Jeddah.

“Frankfurt and Jeddah are potential destinations that will be developed. We will introduce the inaugural flights on October and December,” said Juliandra at the Garuda Indonesia headquarters in Central Jakarta on Sunday.

Frankfurt, he says, was chosen as the city is the third largest flight hub in Europe after London and Amsterdam, which Citilink plans to introduce first in October. Meanwhile, the carrier’s inaugural flight to Jeddah will be available starting in December.

He also announced that, in the future, the company will likely make flights available to a number of Australian major cities and Vietnam as the carrier is currently working on the flight permits to the aforementioned countries.

The aircrafts used in these long-haul flights will include the company’s wide-body fleets such as the 365-seater Airbus A330-900 NEO that can travel a maximum distance of 13,000 kilometers.
