Garuda Indonesia will start planning next year for the next generation of aircraft that will best fit the airline up to 2025.
Indonesia's flag carrier will consider the proposed successor to the Boeing 777-300ER, dubbed the 777-X, and the Airbus A350-1000 for its long-haul requirements, says its chief executive Emirsyah Satar in an interview with Flightglobal Pro.
It will also decide between the Airbus A320neo and the Boeing 737 Max for its narrowbody fleet, he adds.
In January, its low-cost arm Citilink placed a firm order for 25 A320neos in a deal worth $2.4 billion at list prices.
Under its "quantum leap" programme, Garuda plans to expand its fleet to 194 aircraft by 2015. It now operates 105 aircraft including the Airbus A330s, 737s and Bombardier CRJ1000s.
Flightglobal Pro data shows that its order book includes two A330-200s, 18 A330-300s, 20 737-800s, 10 777-300ERs and 13 CRJ1000s.
