Hong Kong. 7th October 2013:
FORMIA, the international guest amenity and hospitality specialist, today announces that Garuda Indonesia has introduced the renowned L'Occitane brand supplied by FORMIA to its Business Class cabins.
As the Airline continues on its Quantum Leap program, it has invested in a series of upgrades to its service offer throughout all cabins. Recognition was shown recently with the airline being ranked #8 "Best Airline in the World" by Skytrax' World Airline Awards and named winner in the 'Best in Region: Asia and Australasia' category at the Passenger Choice Awards 2013. In addition to winning this category, Garuda Indonesia was among the Top 5 airlines in the 'Best Overall Passenger Experience' category, as well as among the Top 5 Best Ground Experience. FORMIA is delighted to have been able to bring on board an indulgent and environmentally responsible brand with the outstanding reputation of L'Occitane to help further the airline's drive for constant improvement.
The in-flight amenity kits now available in Garuda's Business Class feature a number of products from L'Occitane's range, including Verbena Body Lotion, Verbena EDT and Shea Butter Lip Balm. The bag itself, made from high quality materials, is specially designed to allow the passenger a wide variety of post flight uses.
Commenting, Vice President In Flight Services Lou D'Alessio said: "Garuda Indonesia has a desire for industry-leading quality and we are delighted that a drive for excellence has led to this new relationship between Garuda Indonesia, FORMIA and L'Occitane whose high quality and in-demand products are exactly the sort of in-flight amenity gift we wish to present to our passengers."
Roland Grohmann, Managing Director of FORMIA, said: "FORMIA is proud and delighted to be playing a part in Garuda Indonesia's current drive for quality and continuous improvement. We congratulate the airline on the success and recognition its efforts are having across the travel industry. L'Occitane products are famous throughout the world for their quality and revitalizing properties using the finest of Provence's natural plant extracts. I am confident that this combination of Indonesian hospitality and passenger care with rich fragrances represents a further significant step towards the achievement of Garuda Indonesia's aims."
