S Parman Kav. 72 Slipi, West Jakarta. The office is open Monday to Saturday, only closing on Sundays. Citilink also has a membership arrangement, where passengers can collect Supergreen Miles according to the frequency of their flight.

HistoryCitilink was established in 2001 as a Strategic Business Unit of Garuda Indonesia to cater to Indonesian budget travelers. At first, it only served routes that are not served by Garuda Indonesia such as Yogyakarta, Balikpapan, and Tarakan. The destination number increased to 10 destinations in 2004. It was temporarily suspended in 2008, before being relaunched in 2009. At the time of its relaunching, Citilink’s ownership was divided between two shareholders; PT Garuda Indonesia (Persero) Tbk with 67% and PT Aerowisata with 33%. Since 2011, its flight was managed by the Garuda Indonesia Strategic Business Unit and operated under Garuda’s AOC and used their flight number. However, that changed in 2012 when PT Citilink Indonesia started operating independently with IATA flight code “QG”, ICAO Designation “CTV” and call sign “Supergreen”. Around that time, there is also a shift with the share. In 2012, Garuda Indonesia owns 94.3% of the share, while Aerowisata owns the other 5.7%.
