As the new year is just around the corner we are delighted to announce our plans for 2018! With full service resumed after our yearly Christmas shutdown we are yet again here to announce the path to the future for Indo´s subsidiaries. During the announcement held today at the Raffles Hotel in Jakarta the CEO said
"2018 will bring lots of excitement to Indo and we cant wait to share everything we will be doing at Indo! Let´s first start with Kecepatan Airways which will have it´s whole fleet completely refitted to symbolise complete luxury giving our honoured guests a complete Ecstatic feeling of Luxury on board the worlds best airline, the pride of Asia, the one and only Kecepatan! The refit will include new even more luxurious seats, more Plus class on the 747s, updated sound and lighting systems and the new Global entertainment system. We will also add 15 new 787-8 aircraft during 2018 to further expand long and thin routes on behalf of Indo. Next is Malaysian which will receive two 757s and 5 737s from the Global Banking Corporation to operate in Malaysia to various Indonesian destinations. As we have very little control over IndoExpress we cant promise much but the hopes are to by the end of next year have at least 100 planes feeding Indo"
Then he started rambling on about Swedish hokey, how is favourite team will win the SHL, how every other team cant play, about large fish he caught, how his carbon fibre fishing rod flexes when it got an over 10kg cod on it contrary to how graphite fishing rods react, etc. After an hour and every reporter yawning he started talking about the actual IndoSky.
"Obviously it was on purpose to ramble on about complete rubbish for an hour to bring more excitement for the actually huge announcement, finally we are here, IndoSky will have a fantastic 2018! We will work hard to increase profits and become a top 10 in size airline. We will be adding 130 brand new A321NEO machines and 110 brand new A320NEOs. In the wide body segment we will be replacing 50 A380s and adding 50 more meaning that we will have over 100 brand new A380s by the end of the year, we will also be adding over 50 more A350s to by the end of the year have over 100 of them. Meaning that in 2018 Indo will be adding 330 new Airbus aircraft across 3 families, this will require about 35,000 new staff to operate these planes, meaning that we will end next year with 100,000 employees. This cant be compared to Americans expansion which will consist of adding 430 A320NEOs and 100 A321NEOs for 2018. American will become one of America´s largest airlines and no doubt the most modern one. That is all for this press conference, no questions. Happy new year!"
