Garuda Indonesia considering launching separate LCC subsidiary

Garuda Indonesia is considering plans to launch a separate LCC subsidiary, Citilink, by the end of 2010, due to growing demand in domestic and short-haul international markets (AINonline, 03-Feb-2010/Wall Street Journal, 04-Feb-2010). CEO, Emirsyah Satar, stated the carrier would operate approximately 20 aircraft, including some of Garuda’s older B737s. The carrier currently operates a low fare branded Citilink service on certain domestic routes.
