[Avionics Today 04-19-2016] Garuda Indonesia has confirmed an order with Airbus for the purchase of 14 A330-900neos, the new re-engined version of the A330 widebody airliner, to support the company’s growth and business expansion in the future. Garuda Indonesia plans to use the A330neo to develop its medium- and long-haul networks, with the aircraft claiming to offer new technology along with more efficient operations. The order replaces and extends an existing order for seven A330-300 aircraft, and the A330neo will be delivered from 2019 onwards.

“This deal underlines the increasing importance of our ties with Indonesia — a fast growing economy and set to become the seventh largest in the world by 2030,” said British Prime Minister David Cameron who was present at the deal’s signing.
