Garuda Indonesia has announced plans to link its Singapore-Makassar service to Balikpapan.

The new routing, which comes into effect from 27 July 2012, will see flights operate four times a week from Singapore’s Changi airport to Makassar’s Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport, with a 50-minute stop at Balikpapan, on the east coast of the island of Borneo. All flights will be operated using a 96-seat, two-class Boeing 737-500 aircraft.

“We are constantly looking to improve our flight offerings to provide Singapore travellers with better connectivity to Indonesia. Balikpapan is a seaport city, well-positioned as a business hub with a variety of offerings for both corporate and leisure travellers. It has remarkable growth potential and we’ve been seeing a significant rise in domestic demand for air travel between Makassar and Balikpapan,” said Nicodemus Lampe, Garuda’s Vice President for Asia.
