Citilink just received their first A320neo yesterday. She is still fresh from the “Oven”. This delivery makes Citilink to be the first A320neo operator in Indonesia and the 2nd A320neo operator in Southeast Asia after AirAsia. The plane was delivered from Toulouse yesterday with a stop in Ra’sal-Khaymah. The plane’s registration is PK-GTA (Please don’t ask me why they named it PK-GTA 😂)
A320neo will soon replace some older A320s owned by Citilink to keep Garuda’s Group average fleet age (They are retiring old planes on both Garuda and Citilink) to below 5 years old. I’m guessing she will start her first flight in March 😊.
Citilink has ordered 35 A320neos and they are planning to receive at least 5/6 A320neos this year
Currently she is parked in Garuda’s GMF Hangar in Jakarta’s Soekarno Hatta International Airport. I wish I may be able to spot her during my next visit to CGK 😊
