Creditors approve Garuda Indonesia restructuring plan

Garuda Indonesia has received the green light from its creditors to move forward with its restructuring plan, according to a Reuters report.  

The report quotes officials as saying that out of 95% of creditors who participated in the voting, the vast majority of creditors approved the plan to restructure the airline’s $9 billion debt. The agreement is set to be ratified by the Indonesian court.  

AeroTime has asked Garuda Indonesia for a comment. 

Garuda Indonesia filed for debt restructuring in December 2021. 

The airline had been suffering from financial trouble prior to the COVID-19 pandemic but these were accelerated as the global health crisis wreaked havoc on the aviation industry. 

During the first three months of 2021, Garuda Indonesia reported a net loss of $1.7 billion, a notable increase compared to a net loss of $1.1 billion in 2020.  

The negative financial outcome was attributed to the ongoing pandemic followed by stringent travel restrictions, which “has caused a significant reduction in air travel and has a major adverse impact on the Group’s operations and liquidity”. 

The airline has not yet released its 2021 full year and Q1 2022 financial reports.
