Garuda enter freighter biz - ATR & 777

Fri Oct 19, 2018 5:48 pm

Garuda Indonesia in cooperation with state owned shipping firm PT Pelayaran Nasional Indonesia plans to develop its cargo operations further, with two converted ATRs and one B777 freighter.

Carrier seeks to serve growing e-commerce business within the Indonesia archipelago along with offering international clients sea-air freight link with initial route to HKG.

Its expected the operation could launch as soon as the new year.

No info on sourcing the 777. Suspect it might be ACMI lease if they want an aircraft fast.

The 777 could be the white Etihad machine.

Interesting news about the ATRs. Will they fly by day?

Yes, I was thinking the same thing when I read the OP. Can't really see which other frame they could get that quickly, new anyway.

Interesting, quite a few local freighter outfits already operating cargo ops, good to see GA getting into new feilds. Athough not quite so how well it will pan out considering SIN and KUL are within an hour and a half flying time ex CGK with Fedex, SIA cargo hubs

In the print version of the Jakarta Post, there was no mention of a 777 but rather of a 738, which would be sourced from its fleet of passenger aircraft. The aircraft would, among other things, be used for a daily roundtrip between Makassar (UPG), where cargo would be pooled, to Hongkong.
