Boeing delivered Garuda Indonesia’s 75th Boeing jet, a Next-Generation 737-800 fitted with Blended Winglets, on April 18.

Garuda Indonesia, the Southeastern Asian nation’s state-owned flag carrier, operates a fleet composed primarily of Boeing 747s and 737s. The airline plans to add another 23 737-800s in 2010 , 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. Garuda Indonesia plans grow its fleet from 67 to 116 airplanes by 2014, almost a doubling of the fleet within four years. The carrier says its 737-800 fleet will support Garuda Indonesia’s expansion plans as it adds new domestic routes and increases frequencies on regional services.
