Garuda Indonesia, Indonesia’s national carrier, has announced the acquisition of up to 51 additional aircraft, boosting the airline’s existing fleet revitalisation program to one of the fastest growing within Asia Pacific.
This bold move towards a modern, fuel efficient and low-maintenance fleet follows significant passenger growth from Australia and the region and includes an increase to the carrier’s primary aircraft as follows:
As a result, Garuda Indonesia will operate as many as 146 aircraft by 2015, consisting of twenty-four A330s, nine B777s, eighty-five B737-800NGs, twenty-five sub-100s, and three cargo freighters.
Garuda Indonesia’s fleet revitalisation program, approved by the company’s shareholders on Friday, is an integral part of the airlines ‘Quantum Leap’ strategy, which aims to boost the airline’s competitiveness significantly by 2015.
