Boeing today delivered a 777-300ER (Extended Range) to Garuda Indonesia in a special SkyTeam livery. The 777-300ER continues to play an important role in Garuda's network expansion strategy.

"We continue to grow our network with the SkyTeam alliance and the 777-300ER's efficiency and economics allow us to stay competitive and with an interior that our passengers love. We're proud to see our latest 777-300ER in the SkyTeam livery," said Arif Wibowo, President and CEO, Garuda Indonesia.

Garuda Indonesia became the 20th member to join the SkyTeam Alliance in August 2014, providing access to an extensive global network with more than 16,320 daily flights to 1,052 destinations in 177 countries. The Indonesian flag carrier currently operates more than 90 Boeing airplanes, including Next-Generation 737s, 777-300ERs and 747-400s.

"For almost 40 years, Boeing and Garuda have partnered to bring the world an exceptional flying experience and this new livery demonstrates Garuda's growing role in global aviation," said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president, Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 777-300ER, and our entire family of airplanes, provides Garuda with the flexibility, range and superior economics they need to continue to expand. We look forward to building on our partnership in coming years with the 737 MAX and 787 Dreamliner."

The 777-300ER is one of the most fuel and cost-efficient airplanes in its class as well as the most reliable twin-aisle aircraft in the world. It also has the highest cargo capability of any passenger airplane in service. The 777-300ER will receive further improvements in 2016 designed to reduce fuel use by 2 percent.

Presenting a new level of service excellence in air travel, Garuda Indonesia, the national airline of Indonesia, seamlessly connects more than 75 destinations worldwide to not only one of the largest economies in Southeast Asia, but also an array of exotic locations in the beautiful archipelago of Indonesia all at once.

With close to 600 daily flights and a fleet of 174 aircraft with the average age of which is less than five years old, Garuda Indonesia proudly serves its passengers with the award-winning "Garuda Indonesia Experience" service, which highlights Indonesia's warm hospitality and rich diverse culture.
