Garuda, Indonesia’s national flag carrier, has delivered two second-hand Boeing 737-400 aircraft to the Indonesian Air Force (TNI–AU).

The two passenger jets were handed over to support the VIP 17 air squadron based at Halim Perdanakusuma Airport and required no modifications.

Garuda president director Emirsyah Satar said the maintenance for the planes would be jointly undertaken by the Garuda Maintenance Facility (GMF) and the air force.

The transfer of ownership is based on an agreement signed between Garuda and the Indonesian Air Force last year, according to the Jakarta Post.
