Starting from a dream to voyage the skies, the world of flight has evolved into a massive race among commercial operators to pamper passengers. With Garuda Indonesia, the Business Class Experience can be enjoyed even before you spread your wings and well after you close them.

Have you ever wondered when the Wright Brothers tested their contraption above the fields of Kitty Hawk, if they anticipated the scale of air travel today? Did they predict that the skies would become the province not only of adventurous souls desiring to soar like birds but businesspeople looking to reach their destinations in comfort and style? Air travel has become a world of its own – you need only choose the best carrier to buoy you up amongst the clouds.   

While arriving early to the airport for check-in is common practice, as a passenger of Garuda Indonesia’s Business Class, there are more reasons to be on time. Experience the easy and top-class check-in process at the new Premium Check-in facility located at Terminal 2E/2F of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. Relax as you wait to board your flight, with staff to assist your overweight luggage issues, class upgrade, reservations, ticket booking, route substitutions, and other services. To increase passengers’ comfort, Garuda Indonesia’s free luggage capacity is 40kg for Business Class passengers and 30kg for Economy Class. An additional 23kg is permitted for sporting equipment such as bicycles, golf kits, diving equipment and so on. 

After check-in, it’s time to luxuriate in the Business Class Lounge, which includes a business center, wireless Internet connection, reflexology machines, showers, a nursery room and praying room. Enjoy savory food and drink provided by Garuda Indonesia, including a rotation of Indonesian food each week, while the International Lounge contains a mini bar.

Serving nine flights per day to Singapore, Garuda Indonesia operates two flights with its Airbus A330-200 fleet and Boeing 737-800 Next Generation for the other seven. The A330-200 is equipped with 36 Business Class and 186 Economy Class seats. Full flatbed seats are available for Business Class passengers, equipped with a fully adjustable head rest and power sockets to charge your electronic devices. The Boeing 737-800 NG itself has 12 Business Class and 150 Economy Class seats.

Overcome flight weariness with a selection of audio and video entertainment, including music, movies and video games available in both Economy and Business Class. The A330-series fleet is also equipped with in-flight connectivity, so that you can stay connected to the world while cruising at an altitude of 10,000 feet. 

The in-flight meals feature a myriad of Indonesian favorites. Special meals such as diabetic foods, vegetarian, non-allergens, non-fat meals as well as child and baby food are also available when requested 24 hours before the flight through Garuda Indonesia’s Call Center or a ticketing officer. 

The indulgence continues even after landing. Passengers of Business Class and GarudaMiles Platinum holders are admitted to the Premium Arrival Lounge and baggage collection with officers to assist you in collecting your luggage from the conveyor belt. While you wait, you can tuck into a selection of snacks and beverages. 

Today, flying is an absolute necessity, but you need more than just reaching your destination safe and sound; you need a special experience of emerging from the big metal bird feeling like a king or queen in your prime.
