Indonesia’s Passenger Service Charge (PSC) will no longer be included in the price of a Garuda Indonesia flight tickets. From October 1st 2014, the PSC will have to be paid separately. Garuda first started including PSC in its fares in 2012 and was widely praised for the move.
However, it has now been said that it has since suffered significant losses due to uncollected payments. The Indonesian national carrier said it could start to bundle the PSC into its fares again in future, but only if other Indonesian airlines do likewise. Garuda’s low-cost subsidiary Citilink will continue to include PSC in its fares.
