Garuda Indonesia will join the SkyTeam alliance as its 20th member in March 2014.
This comes after the carrier's entry into the alliance was delayed as it had to select a new IT platform and take time to migrate to the system.
"Garuda Indonesia's domestic and growing international network will give SkyTeam a footprint in Indonesia, as we strengthen our presence in the Southeast Asia region," says SkyTeam managing director Michael Wisbrun. "Garuda has worked hard to meet the membership criteria required by SkyTeam, including implementing a new IT platform, and we look forward to welcoming the airline in March next year."
Indonesia's flag carrier was previously due to join SkyTeam by the end of 2011, however this was delayed as the airline had to resolve its IT issues, including problems with its reservations systems.
