Garuda Indonesia has confirmed it will resume flights to the US following the recent upgrade of its safety status.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said the airline now complies with International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) safety standards and has been granted a category 1 rating.
The new route will depart from Jakarta via Tokyo and arrive in the US.
Vice president of corporate communications Garuda Indonesia, Benny Butarbutar, said:"Our plan to re-operate the US flight service is expected to strengthen Garuda's position as one of global aviation player. With the upgraded rating from FAA which recognizes the Indonesia aviation safety and security standard, we are trying to make plan realization even sooner," said Butarbutar
He added that the route will be serviced by a Boeing 777-300ER.
In 2014, Garuda Indonesia announced its codeshare partnership with Delta Airlines - as the same member of SkyTeam alliance - for flight service to Los Angeles and Seattle via Tokyo Haneda.
