Emirsyah said that operation of those ATR 72-600 planes to serving the flights in eastern Indonesian region is part of Garuda Indonesia\'s commitment to improving national connectivity and is an effort to develop transportation network in areas projected as new growth centers in the eastern region. \"This business expansion is in line with government\'s efforts in opening new airstrips in eastern region, particularly in areas regarded as centers of new growth and tourist destinations ones in the region,\" Emirsyah said.
