PT Garuda Indonesia Tbk has grounded two thirds of its fleet, citing leasing issues and maintenance needs. Garuda was only operating 53 airplanes of the 142 in its fleet. The company added that of the non-operational planes, 39 were under maintenance. It did not specify the status of the 50 remaining aircraft, most of which are Boeing 737-800s and Bombardier CRJ1000s. “The pandemic reduced the number of aircraft in operation such that only 53 aircraft are in operation for the company’s business operations at the moment,” the management wrote.
