About The Airline
Garuda Indonesia is the national airline of Indonesia, based at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. The carrier operates an extensive domestic and regional network of services throughout Asia, Australia and the Middle East. In Jun-2010, Garuda resumed services to Europe (initially Amsterdam via Dubai) after an extended EU imposed ban.
Garuda has undergone a thorough restructuring in what it labelled "The Quantum Leap", which involved a dramatic redesign of the airline's strategic direction, network, brand and fleet. The airline launched an IPO in 2011 which was substantially under-subscribed at the relatively aggressive pricing sought. In Apr-2012, the government announced that talks were under way for a consortium of local investors to absorb the overhang, still held by the underwriters.
Garuda Indonesia is the 20th member of the SkyTeam alliance.
