Garuda Indonesia is likely to record a net profit of more than USD110.4 million in 2011, double an estimated IDR420 billion to IDR450 billion in 2010 (Dow Jones Newswires, 31-Jan-2011). Acting finance director Elisa Lumbantoruan said Garuda's load factor will likely increase to an average 75% this year from around 60% in 2010.
