Garuda to Double Number of Aircraft in Operation by End 2022​

AUGUST 25, 2022

Jakarta. State-controlled airlines Garuda Indonesia, the country's flag carrier, and its subsidiary Citilink Indonesia will soon double the number of their aircraft in operation to increase the supply in the domestic air travel market, Minister of State-Owned Enterprises Erick Thohir said Wednesday.

The remark came following President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo's instruction earlier this week to help push down airline ticket prices in the domestic market.

"Currently, there are 61 Garuda and Citilink aircraft, and the number will be increased to 120 aircraft by the end of 2022," Erick said after attending a limited cabinet meeting with the President.

"Per the President's instructions, we continue to reduce ticket prices," Erick said.

The number of aircraft in the aviation industry in Indonesia has decreased, and many are due to the sluggish aviation business due to the pandemic.

However, as the handling of Covid-19 improved, the number of ferries increased again, and at the same time, the fuel price rose, triggering soaring ticket prices.

According to the company's latest financial report, Garuda controlled 69 aircraft and Citilink 58.

However, according to Planespotter.com, half of Garuda's aircraft and a third of Citilink's were not flown for more than four days and parked in various airports across the country due to maintenance or lighter flying schedules, according to Planespotters.net, an aircraft monitoring website.

Boeing Team Supplier Assessment Visit

Marketing Infoglobal


Infoglobal receives a visit from the Boeing team on August 29-30, 2022. This visit is welcomed directly by the Director of Operations of Infoglobal, Bagoes Soediarto at the Infoglobal Workshop in Surabaya. The visit is in order to conduct an assessment of the capabilities and facilities owned by Infoglobal in developing and producing avionics.


Infoglobal has successfully developed avionics, some of which can be used for the Boeing 737-200 military transport aircraft, namely the EFD-6.0 and DDSC. EFD-6.0 is a navigation display for Boeing 737-200 aircraft. Meanwhile, DDSC or Digital Data to Synchro Converter is an avionic that can be used to convert digital data (ARINC 429 interface) into analog data (synchro) on Boeing 737-200 aircraft.

I am waiting Indonesian Aerospace makes a collaboration with Regio Aviasi lead by Ilham Habibie in developing R 80 planes. The development cost is not cheap, around 1.7 billion USD, but if we have the capability to finance our 20 % stake in KF21 program at 1.3 billion USD, so there should not be any hesitation to finance this program as well, the basic design has already been completed though.

Any way, the plane is basically a development of N 250 planes that have undergone around 1000 hours test flight. If we develop the plane, it means the money and time we used for developing N 250 will not be wasted.

One of Indonesia start up companies in developing and manufacturing drone.


IA-25 is a drone designed, manufactured, tested, and developed by IterAero in Indonesia. It is capable of carrying up to 5 kg of cargo or it can be configured to carry utility equipments such as thermal camera, terrain sensor, and photography/videography camera.


  • Length : 248 cm
  • Height : 60.1 cm
  • Wingspan : 371.1 cm
  • Airframe Material : Composite
  • Empty Weight : 14.6 kg
  • Cruising Speed : 43 knots (80 km/h)
  • Maximum Speed : 68 knots (126 km/h)
  • Cruising Altitude : 400 ft (120 m) AMSL
  • Maximum Altitude : 5000 ft (1520 m) AMSL
  • Maximum Flight Hours : 5 hours
  • Maximum Payload : 5 kg
  • Battery Voltage : 4500 mAh
  • Battery Weight : 680 grams
  • Capabilities : Cargo transport, thermal imagery, aerial photography/videography, project supervision, land mapping, agriculture.


Indonesia is a large archipelagic country with vast sea and lots of mountainous areas. There are regions in Indonesia that are challenging to reach, making the area highly isolated from access. We saw the potential of drone utilization in Indonesia. Thus, IterAero was founded at Bandung on 1 October 2020 as a drone design and manufacture company as an innovation to answer growing needs of unmanned aerial vehicle.

  • Highly Capable Human Resources

  • Versatile Product

  • Professional Design & Manufacturing Process

Spur Aerospace Business, PTDI Signs MoU with Airbus​


Belitung, CNBC Indonesia - PT Dirgantara Indonesia (Persero) or PTDI signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Airbus on cooperation in improving the aerostructure business as well as maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO).

The cooperation was signed in a series of G20 Development Ministerial Meeting Side Event with the theme "Harnessing the Ecosystem of Aerospace Industry in Indonesia", Wednesday (7/9/2022).

Representing Airbus are Head of Asia-Pacific for Airbus Defence and Space, Johan Pelissier, and Head of Asia-Pacific for Airbus Helicopters, Vincent Dubrule. Meanwhile, PTDI is represented by Gita Amperiawan as President Director.

The signing was witnessed directly by the Minister of National Development Planning/Head of Bappenas Suharso Monoarfa and the French Minister of State for Development and International Partnership Chrysoula Zacharopoulou.

"I welcome this collaboration between PTDI and Airbus as a sign of capacity expansion within the framework of global collaboration. This Memorandum of Understanding is expected to further advance the cooperation between the two companies, while increasing the participation of the Indonesian aerospace industry in the global aerospace industry value chain. We hope that this will also trigger new collaborations in the future," said Suharso.

Similarly, Gita assessed that the signing of this MoU would encourage the improvement of PTDI's aerostructure business competence and value which is estimated to reach US$ 500 million in the next 10 years. With this collaboration, PTDI is also expected to increase its role in developing the domestic industrial ecosystem.

"Airbus is a strong strategic partner that can contribute to PTDI's transformation to become a major player in the aviation industry in the region. By combining the competencies of their respective industries, we believe this MoU will maintain and strengthen the strategic cooperation between PTDI and Airbus that has been established for a long time," he said.

Gita explained that the N219 aircraft has also met the domestic component level (TKDN) of 44.69%. The N219 aircraft has also bagged certification from the Ministry of Industry.
