INDUSTRY.co.id - Tangerang- President Director of PT Garuda Indonesia (Persero) Tbk I Gusti Ngurah Ashkara Danadiputra is determined to reduce spending up to 150 million US dollars by the end of 2018.

"We are determined to reduce costs until the end of 2018, not large but below 100 million US dollars minimum. By the end of 2018 we get better. God willing, it could happen 150 million US dollars," Askhara said after the press conference after the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders at Garuda Office, Tangerang, Wednesday (12/09/2018)

He said the effort to be carried out was to close inefficiencies, one of which was by evaluating unfavorable routes.

"We are closing some inefficiencies, if the language of children today is operational leakage. For the route, this afternoon the directors meeting will be held until Friday," he said.

In addition, he continued, by improving the cost structure by adding a number of channels and revenue segments.

"To increase revenue, we create a new channel. The cost structure we see is our only product, our customers are quite segmented but our customers are one but only one service must be changed and improved," he told Antara.

Askhara will also work hard by involving all employees, trade unions, stakeholders and regulators as well as discussing with the old management.

"Our focus is on transformation, from the service side of how to make employees happy and improve service to customers," he said.
