About Garuda Indonesia
Garuda Indonesia is Indonesia's national airline, headquartered at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in the nation's capital of Jakarta. The airline operates scheduled flights from its base in Jakarta to a number of destinations in Southeast Asia, East Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Australia, Europe, and also domestically within Indonesia. It is currently Indonesia's second-largest airline, after Lion Air.
The airline was founded in 1947, where it was called KLM Interinsulair Bedrijf, and was nationalised in December 1949 along with a new name 'Garuda Indonesian Airways'. The airline operated flights for national interests during its beginning, often involving carrying diplomats onboard. It was also supported by the Burmese government during its early years, with charter flights used to support the airline. Garuda was officially incorporated with KLM in 1950. During the 1960s and, the airline grew and expanded its fleet and network. This growth continued into the 70s, 80s and 90s until the late 90s and early 20s which bought a difficult time for the airline. However, the airline soon recovered from its economic problems. By 2014, the airline had fully recovered, being one of seven airlines to earn a Skytrax 5-star rating.

Garuda Indonesia given permission to fly in Europe
Garuda Indonesia has been removed from Europe's list of banned airlines — along with other Indonesian airlines — as the EU put in place a new system that will evaluate which aircraft are deemed safe enough to fly within and throughout Europe. The new system is being run by Eurocontrol, which is an air traffic control company that cover 41 member and two comprehensive agreement states.
Garuda Indonesia was granted access to fly in Europe after the whole of Indonesia passed an International Civil Aviation Organisation audit which saw Garuda Indonesia, along with two other Indonesian airlines, being given a seven-star safety rating. Garuda Indonesia has been banned from flying in Europe since 2007, when all Indonesian airlines were deemed unsafe to fly in the continent. However, after Garuda Indonesia's extremely high safety rating, the EU air travel executives can see no reason why the airline shouldn't be able to fly in European airspace.
