DATA SPOTLIGHT: Citilink

This year The Blue Swan Daily will feature some of the leading airlines, airports and country markets for air travel. Here, using the extensive profile insights available to CAPA – Centre for Aviation members to deliver a data snapshot, we look at Citilink, an Indonesian LCC that is expanding into long-haul markets following the addition of widebodied aircraft.

The subsidiary of flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, Citilink has now added two Airbus A330-900neo aircraft to its fleet on lease from Avolon. The first was delivered in early Dec-2019 and the second in the middle of Jan-2020 and each is configured with 42 premium economy and 323 economy seats.

The new widebodies are initially being used on local flights, mainly Jakarta – Medan, but also to operate into Saudi Arabia. The airline plans to use the aircraft to expand its network into new markets and has preliminary filed schedules to commence a daily Jakarta – Tokyo Narita service from 02-May-2020 and a four times weekly Denpasar – Jakarta – Frankfurt link from 02-Jun-2020.
