Garuda Indonesia has announced it will join the SkyTeam airline alliance in 2012.

“Joining SkyTeam is a long term development strategy for Garuda Indonesia, and for years we have been upgrading our service and actively forging cooperation with SkyTeam member airlines with this objective in mind,” said Garuda president and CEO Emirsyah Satar.

“Jakarta will serve as an alternate gateway to and from Asia,” said SkyTeam managing director Marie-Joseph Malé. “Garuda’s consideration to expand its intercontinental network to Frankfurt, Paris, London and Rome will make the airline an increasingly attractive option for business and leisure travellers.”
