At Garuda Indonesia Virtual, we aim to provide the best virtual flight sim experience for our pilots, providing a route network of over 400 routes. These consist partly of Garuda Indonesia Routes, but also include Citilink, Codeshare and Heritage Routes, using our MD-11. Additionally, we offer Flash Flights with staff members, weekly Skyteam Routes of the Week and events in partnership with Blaze Event Group.


Garuda Indonesia Virtual Group was originally founded in 2019 as Garuda Indonesia Virtual Airlines. Our founder, @Ozzy wanted to bring more attention to the Asian market, as at the time most Virtual Airlines were based in Europe and the US. Since then, Garuda Indonesia has turned into a small, but growing, virtual community. Eventually, after Ozzy decided to hand off his position, @Matt777 took over the CEO position. Most recently, we changed our name from Garuda Indonesia Virtual Airlines (GAVA) to Garuda Indonesia Virtual Group (GVG), as Citilink has become a part of our Virtual Group. Mid May 2022 @Sean_McCormack decided to relinquish his position as CEO and delegate the new CEO position to @Syncline. GVG continues to grow to compete with other VA positions on Asian, improving and continuing to improve several new programs. Now, @Syncline’s leadership has been replaced by Sabrina Humaira (@Humai-Girl).

At Garuda Indonesia Virtual Group, we offer an extensive route network of over 500 routes. These range from short-haul domestic routes all the way to long haul routes, like Jakarta to Amsterdam. Additionally, we offer over 200 codeshare routes as well as an extensive Heritage Programme using our Retro Aircraft, the MD-11. Recently, we included Citilink, a Garuda Indonesia subsidiary in real life, into our operations, currently making up for about 70 routes. Check out our full Route Database here.

Currently, Garuda Indonesia Virtual Group has 100% complete aircraft in Infinite Flight, especially when we just got A330-300 with PK-GPE in Update 23.3, we hope will provide additional value for our VA.

Garuda Indonesia Xplore & Citilink ATR72-600

Route ATR72-600 Temporarily replaced by Dash 8-Q400, where their route will take us to rural destinations such as Gunung Sitoli, Purbalingga, Jember, etc.

Garuda CRJ-1000 - PK-GRE

With two active aircraft in the fleet, the Bombardier CRJ-1000 doesn’t play a big role in Garuda Indonesia’s operations. However, there are 16 aircraft currently parked, allowing Garuda to increase the total fleet size to 18. PK-GRE is one of the 16 aircraft currently parked, however, we continue to use the airframe in the virtual skies. Being able to carry 96 passengers, the CRJX perfectly fits some of the smaller and less busy routes in our database.

Garuda CRJ-1000 - PK-GRA

Showcasing Garuda Indonesia’s Skyteam membership, PK-GRA is always a beautiful livery to spot. Although it is parked in real life, we won’t keep you from using these stunning colours in the virtual skies.

Garuda B737-800 - PK-GMR

The Boeing 737-800 is the backbone of the Garuda Indonesia Fleet. With 18 currently in service, it is the most present aircraft in the fleet, however, it was once at 51 airframes that were in operation, which means that 33 aircraft are currently in storage. PK-GMR is active in real life and just as active in our fleet, accounting for most of our PIREPs filed. Carrying 174 passengers, it is popular on busy domestic routes as well as international routes, being able to fly as far as Australia and Thailand.

Garuda A330-300 - PK-GPE

We are back with Aircraft A330-300 in update 23.3. We are very happy because this Fleet has an important role in GVG. Because most international flights are served by A330-300, such as Singapore, Sydney, Seoul, Tokyo, etc.

Garuda A330-900neo - PK-GHE

Airbus A330-900neo is truly impressive, with it’s beautiful livery and “glasses”.

Garuda B777-300ER - PK-GIA

The largest aircraft in our fleet, the Boeing 777-300ER operates on international long haul routes like the longest route in our database, Jakarta to Amsterdam. With four currently in operation and a further six in storage, the 777 may not be a big fleet in size, but it is definitely an important aircraft in our fleet.

Garuda MD-11 - PK-GIJ

The McDonnell Douglas MD-11 is our Retro aircraft. Operating solely on our Heritage program, it covers mostly multi-stop routes from Indonesia to Europe and North America. All of these routes were once operated in real life when the MD-11 was in the Garuda Indonesia fleet and now we make them available to our highest ranks.

Citilink A320-200 - PK-GQU

Airbus A320 is the most important member of Citilinks fleet. Although it will eventually be replaced by the newer Airbus A320neo, we will still see Citilink operate the CEO (Current Engine Options) for a lot of years to come.

Citilink A330-900neo - PK-GYA

With our small fleet of Citilink A330neos we operate for Reguler Routes souch as Batam, Solo, Denpasar, etc. And some interesting Charter Flights, for example to China or the US.

Skyteam Virtual Alliance

Skyteam Virtual Alliance Tail

Skyteam Alliance, founded in August of 2018 by Air France-KLM and Delta Virtual. Skyteam has been the dream of the leadership of the two Virtual Airlines since the conception of Infinite Flight’s Global Update in 2017 and has grown to include six great VA’s on Infinite Flight. The Skyteam Alliance has flourished behind the scenes with the integration of AF-KLM and DLVA into a centralized Discord, with new Sky Team VA’s joining the force.
Behind the backing of our partnership, Sky Team continues the longest route agreement between VA’s for weekly routes posted based on the IFATC schedule. Garuda Indonesia is part of Skyteam Virtual, bringing weekly Routes of the Week as well as Friday Night Flight Routes including a special 1.5x Flight Time Bonus to our pilots.

Apart from our collaboration with @SkyTeamIFC’s Airlines, GVG also has several partnerships with other VAs. Check our full list of partners below:

Garuda Indonesia uses a custom Crew Center which is homemade to make it easier to use, both Staff and Pilots with good benefits and affordable prices.

About Crew Center

Garuda Indonesia Virtual Group started this modern Crew Center service on May 15 2023. This Crew Center makes it easy for users to use it. Auto Pirep feature is a feature that is popular with pilots because it can fill Pirep automatically. The other features found in the Crew Center:

@Humai-Girl , GVG CEO

“This Crew Center is very interesting because there are many features that make it easy in it. The feature that we just released is Autopirep which makes it very easy to fill in Pirep, and Multiplier which has been synchronized with Flight Type so you don’t have to worry about having an error when filling it in. There are also other interesting features with a colorful design, as well as an Welcoming Music after logging in”

@rulizalhafizh , GVG115 (Pilots)

“This Crew Center is very interesting with a variety of features, the Autopirep feature is a feature that I really like, a unique and funny feature!.”
