Cardig (PTC) currently operates three Boeing 737-300F cargo airplanes, principally on domestic routes between major hubs in Indonesia, but also to international destinations such as Singapore, Brunei, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
“This will expand domestic . . . business for Garuda. It is a strategic move to increase Garuda Indonesia Cargo services,” Garuda (GIA) (CEO), Arif Wibowo said.
(GIA) has already begun to move strongly into cargo with its imminent signing to the SkyTeam (STM) Cargo Alliance, to bring its products in line with international standards.
Wibowo also noted the agreement with (PTC) would open the way for (GIA) to further expand its international cargo operations, although in the short term, it would concentrate on high volume routes such as Surabaya - Bali - Dili (East Timor).
Cardig Air (PTC) will also extend its carrying capacity by tapping into existing cargo and belly space on (GIA)’s 76 domestic and international schedules. “In the future, we will continue to cooperate with (PTC) on developing cargo shipments to other international routes, that are currently not served by Garuda Indonesia Cargo (GIA),” Wibowo said, adding the deal has the capacity to generate up to +$10 million extra income per year through increased efficiencies.
