#FEFDFlyDeals Features: Garuda Indonesia Travel Fair 2015

#FEFDFlyDeals on special report.

Garuda Indonesia has just launched their special fares for the upcoming Garuda Indonesia Travel Fair 2015 in Jakarta. When I still lived in the capital (plus the desire to travel was at an unbearable level), I always go to this travel fair. Each year, the venue would be beautifully decorated with the airline’s livery, full-throttle branding. I was put in awe with Garuda bringing the reclining business class seats (those were the days when reclining seats were newly introduced), the interior look and feel and half of the aircraft body all the way to Jakarta Convention Center for their first ever event back in 2010.

Now residing in Bali, I am grateful for how thoughtful the airline is. It expanded the trade show to other major cities in Indonesia, 17 cities to be exact. The first major batch starts this weekend from Friday until Sunday, 3 – 5 April. Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Solo, Semarang, Ujung Pandang, Surabaya, Pontianak and Balikpapan. Meanwhile Medan, Pekanbaru, Batam, Banjarmasin, Denpasar (yay!), Manado, Biak and Jayapura get the glimpse of cheap Garuda fares the following week.

Expect fresher, younger and more sophisticated event this year as the theme is “Fly with Style”. This year’s expo features 45 leading travel agents, 6 hotel groups, 5 travel-related retail products and heaps of travel media. You hold BNI credit cards? Then entrance is free of charge. If not, don’t worry, entrance fee is considerably small compared to your return flight tickets to Hong Kong 🙂

Here we go:

Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong, London? Where to go for summer?
