In 27 June, 1 & 5 July 2014, Garuda Indonesia served direct flight from Sentani Airport (DJJ) to Jacksons International Airport Port Moresby (POM) with flight number GA-6560 (DJJ-POM) and GA-6570 (POM-DJJ) with aircraft type Boeing 737-800NG aircraft registration PK-GNH, PK-GFI, and PK-GMQ. The flight duration took about 1 hour and 45 minutes. This is good news! But, is it a regular flight? Unfortunately no, because this is special chartered flight of Indonesian delegation to attend The 5th Melanesian Festival of Arts and Culture, Papua New Guinea, held on 28th June - 11th July 2014.

If you want to take chartered flight of Garuda Indonesia, just go to nearest branch and tell the flight what you need. The cost is about USD 7500 to USD 9000 per hour. With more than 150 delegates from Papua Province attend the MFAC 2014, chartered flight considered as cheapest way to reach Papua New Guinea, because it cut cost more than 70% of the budget than take regular flight. Why not using another cheaper airline? It’s because Garuda Indonesia is flag carrier of Republic Indonesia.

And of course, don’t forget to take photo of the crew!
