Garuda Celebrates London Return

Barry Woods-Turner and Richard Benedikz report from Gatwick Airport on the day Garuda Indonesia re-launched services to the United Kingdom.

GARUDA INDONESIA announced its return to London with all the pomp and ceremony associated with the launch of a new route. Passengers on the inaugural flight into Gatwick Airport on September 8 were given a truly British welcome at the gate by people dressed as Beefeaters and Coldstream Guardsmen, who handed out commemorative key rings. At the check-in area, two Liverpool Football Club legends, Ian Rush and Robbie Fowler, greeted outbound travellers and judged a special ‘keepie uppie’ competition. Garuda Indonesia has a close relationship with the Merseyside club and is official sponsor of the team’s training kit. A reception at the nearby Sofitel Hotel for the media included a presentation of traditional Indonesian music and dancing, as well as formal speeches.

We also report on Latvian carrier airBaltic’s recent turnaround, welcome the arrival of Qatar Airways’ first Airbus A380 and examine whether global airline alliances are here to stay, or are they being put under pressure by new models of inter-carrier co-operation This issue celebrates some major landmarks; we join US Airways for the final flights of its iconic Boeing 737 Classics and we fly on the last Cyprus Airways service from London/Heathrow to Larnaca. Maintaining our historical theme, we have part 1 of the United/Continental Airlines story, and we fly Pam Am International Flight Academy’s full-motion Boeing 707 simulator, the last device of its kind in existence. The latest issue incorporates our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including Garuda Indonesia’s new services from London to Jakarta, the Boeing 737 MAX 200 launch and the official opening of Jet2.com’s multi-million pound training facility, plus all of our regular sections covering the latest commercial aircraft acquisitions, up-to-date accident reports and developments from the world of aviation training.
