Garuda Indonesia will receive the first of 10 Boeing 777-300ER aircraft it has on order in June, to support its network expansion plans.

The aircraft will be used on the Jakarta-London route starting October, and will replace the Boeing 747-400s used on the Jakarta-Jeddah route from July, says the airline.

Garuda's 777s will have 314 seats in a three-class configuration - eight in first, 38 in business and 268 in economy. The carrier also expects to receive three more of the type in July and October.

In 2013, Indonesia's flag carrier will receive three Airbus A330-200s and -300s, four 777-300ERs, 10 737-800s and seven Bombardier CRJ1000s.
