Garuda Indonesia to sign on as Skyteam member

23 Nov 2010

Garuda Indonesia has confirmed that it intends to join the SkyTeam airline alliance. Today, it will sign on officially with the group and discuss the processes leading up to full membership.

Skyteam has recently strengthened its presence in Asia, adding its first Southeast Asian carrier, Vietnam Airlines. Taiwan's China Airlines will come onboard in 2011. It is also looking at places such as Latin America, India and more of the Asia-Pacific to find members "to further better meet demand of our customers," said Skyteam chairman Leo van Wijk.

Garuda's participation will add approximately 30 destinations throughout the Indonesian archipelago to the SkyTeam network that currently comprises 13 airlines, including Air France, China Southern Airlines, Delta Air Lines, KLM and Korean Airlines, and connects to 841 destinations in 162 countries.
