"So during the PKPU, apart from cutting our past debts and unpaid debts, we also negotiate future costs to ensure the company has the ability to generate profits," he said.
Garuda Indonesia will also not serve passengers on unprofitable flight routes. In 2019, Garuda Indonesia serves 172 flight routes which will be reduced to around 70 routes which will be monitored one by one.
"We apologize that in the end, maybe Garuda will not serve the route that is a constituent, but we are trying to serve Citilink, whose route decline is not significant from 116 to 99 and handles several routes that were previously handled by Garuda, such as Gunung Sitoli," he said.
Previously, the government proposed to the Indonesian House of Representatives to approve the provision of State Equity Participation (PMN) worth Rp7.5 trillion for Garuda Indonesia.
