Indonesia′s state-owned airline Garuda Indonesia announced two new international routes on Monday, one between Denpasar and Tokyo′s Haneda airport and another between Jakarta and Taipei.

The airline has been flying to Tokyo′s main airport, Narita, for years, but will begin serving the city′s Haneda Airport as well on April 27. Flights to Taipei′s Taoyuan International Airport are scheduled to begin on May 24.

Garuda will offer discounted prices to passengers in celebration of the new routes, with tickets to Taipei starting at $210 and tickets to Tokyo starting at $170, Garuda Indonesia communications manager Ikhsan Rosan said in Jakarta on Monday.

“Garuda is offering special prices, starting from US$210, for the premier flight to Taipei on May 24, 2012,” Garuda Indonesia communications manager Ikhsan Rosan said in Jakarta on Monday.

The airline will offer daily flights between Jakarta and Taipei and five flights a week between Denpasar and Haneda.
