Indonesia’s TransNusa Aviation is further strengthening its presence in China by increasing the frequency of its scheduled flights to Guangzhou from the current three times weekly to seven times weekly.
TransNusa introduced scheduled flights to Guangzhou on November 16, this year. Scheduled flights depart Terminal 3 Soekarno – Hatta International Airport at 18.10 pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and arrive at 12.10 am at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport. Flights from Guangzhou depart at 01.25 am on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays and arrive in Jakarta at 5.40am.
The airline, which introduced its first international flight on April 14, this year, has launched four new international destinations in a short span of eight months, expanding its wings from Southeast Asia to the Asia Pacific region.
TransNusa Group Chief Executive Officer Bernard Francis attributes the airlines successes and accelerated growth to their customised business model and the vastly experienced management team. “Due to our diligent team, we have managed to not only increase our scheduled flight frequency to Guangzhou but also introduce two new Chinese dishes in our menu, which are wonton noodles and Yongchow fried rice set meals,” said Datuk Bernard, adding that to enhance passenger comfort, TransNusa also has blankets for sale on their Jakarta – Guangzhou flight. For passenger ease, we have established our own customer call center in Canton, in addition to our call center in Jakarta.”
On what to expect of the airline in 2024, Bernard said that the airline is planning to introduce three to four new international destinations. “Next year, we plan to focus on destinations in the Asia Pacific region as well as further strengthen our presence in the Singaporean and Malaysian markets,” said Bernard, adding that on the domestic front, TransNusa passengers can look forward to the revival of targeted routes in Nusantara.
