OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Rome, July 15th 2009
Yesterday evening the Ministry of Transport of the European Union has lifted the ban imposed to Garuda Indonesia and other three Indonesian domestic carriers, which was imposed in July 2007.
This decision, very much expected both here in Europe and in Indonesia, has matured following to the very intensive exchange of relations and operational verifications exchanged between the EU Ministry of Transport and the Indonesian Civil Aviation authority during the two years of operational ban. Both the Indonesian Ministry of Transport and the Director General of the Indonesian Civil Aviation have much appreciated the technical cooperation entertained with the European Ministry of Transport which could determine this very important achievement.
Garuda Indonesia is planning to resume flights from Amsterdam and Frankfurt from next March or June 2010, to be operated by Airbus 330/200.
