11-Apr-2012 5:48 PM

Garuda Indonesia has placed (11-Apr-2012) a firm order with Airbus for 11 more A330-300 aircraft. The order is the third to be placed by Garuda Indonesia for the A330 since Jul-2010, with the carrier now having a total of 21 aircraft on firm order for future delivery. All the aircraft will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines. The carrier will operate the aircraft with a premium two class layout on services from its hubs in Jakarta and Denpasar (Bali) to destinations in Asia, the Middle East and the Pacific, including South Korea, Japan and Australia, according to Garuda finance director Elisa Lumbantoruan. Garuda Indonesia, which currently operates 14 A330 aircraft, comprising eight A330-200s and six A330-300s, plans to fund the purchase using cash, proceeds from last year’s IPO and loans.
