BACKROUND National carrier to the worldâ€™s fourth most populous country, Garuda Indonesia embarked on a major overhaul last year, resulting in a brand makeover, the introduction of a modernised fleet and an aggressive campaign to re-open routes and establish new ones after years of cutbacks. There are dozens of daily flights between Jakarta and Singapore making this a highly competitive route. Changi-based Singapore Airlines, Valuair, Air Asia and Tiger Airways operate the route as do Indonesian carriers Lion Airlines, Batavia Air and Sriwijaya Air. In addition, Lufthansa, Vietnam Airlines, Philippine Airlines and All Nippon Airlines use Singapore-Jakarta as a feeder route to their wider networks.

New Jetliner Technology Emphasizes Human Factors
By : Fly Jet Lag Free
February, 2007 â€” The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner will be the first of a new generation of commercial aircraft provided with a number of new technologies to increase comfort and reduce jet-lag. Human-factors engineers have designed LED lighting that can fade slowly to help passengers set their sleep cycles, and better filtration technology for cleaner air. Recreating conditions closer to those at sea level, cabin pressure will be higher and the air will have higher humidity.
Taking off on a long flight? Then you probably try things to fight jet lag. But preventing the effects of jet lag may soon be a matter of simply the plane you take off in. This new Boeing 787 Dreamliner is designed to make you feel more refreshed when you reach your destination.
