    Garuda charters 15 aircraft for haj pilgrims

    National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia will operate 15 wide-bodied aircraft to fly thousands of Indonesian pilgrims to perform the haj in Mecca beginning next month.

    Garuda’s vice president of corporate communications Pujobroto said in Jakarta on Friday that the 15 aircraft, which would comprise one Boeing 767, three Boeing 747s, and 11 Airbus A330-300s, would be chartered from Europe and the US.

    “The airplanes that we will use to send the pilgrims are relatively new as requested by the Religious Affairs Ministry. One plane was made in 2010,” Pujobroto said.

    According to ministry data, the Indonesian pilgrims quota set by the Saudi Arabian government in this year’s haj season totals 211,000 people: 194,000 will use a regular haj service organized by the ministry and the other 17,000 will use a premium haj service handled by travel companies.

    The pilgrims using the regular haj service will be flown by Garuda and Saudi Arabian Airlines.

    The pilgrimage to comfort zones

    Papayya Voore and his friends came out of the domestic terminal of the Cochin International Airport.

    All six Sabarimala pilgrims were clad in black overalls and had bundles on their heads. They had just arrived from Andhra Pradesh on a Spicejet flight.

    Neutralising the very essence of a pilgrimage are the nearly 100 passengers that arrive at the airport daily.

    So does it make sense in abandoning comforts and greeting sufferings? Papayya Voore, the 40-plus supervisor with the Andhra Pradesh State Electricity Board, says that life has become faster. “It is very difficult to get leave as I am in the supervisory cadre, and what I have is only five days at hand. I cannot wind up my journey in five days if I travel by train or a bus. So the only option is to get a plane.”

    Kasthuri Kathiravel also supported the new-age Sabarimala pilgrimage. Kathiravel is a business manager of a Chennai company that makes air-conditioning and ventilation products to be fixed in new age buildings.
