Garuda Indonesia has taken delivery of its 75th airplane, a Next-Generation 737-800 with Blended Winglets.

 Garuda Indonesia, the state-owned flag carrier, plans to add 23 Boeing 737-800s in 2010 from both Boeing and leasing companies, and will be operating 42 737-800s by year-end.

"The airline has an aggressive fleet-expansion plan that is part of its 'quantum leap' transformation strategy," said Garuda Indonesia's President and CEO Emirsyah Satar.

 The airline plans to nearly double its fleet from 67 to 116 airplanes by 2014. The 737-800 fleet will support Garuda Indonesia's expansion plans as it adds new domestic routes and increases frequencies on regional services.
