HistoryGaruda Indonesia (IATA Code: GA & ICAO Code: GIA) first flew its commercial flight on January 26, 1949. It was from Calcutta to Rangoon, using a DC-3 Dakota Aircraft with the number RI 001 and under the name of Indonesian Airways. However, its first flight that used the name Garuda Indonesia Airways on it was the flight from Jakarta to Yogyakarta on December 28, 1949. The DC-3 aircraft listed as PK-DPD’s task was to pick up President Soekarno. The name "Garuda" itself was also given by President Sukarno, taken from a Dutch poem written by Noto Soeroto: "Ik ben Garuda, Vishnoe's vogel, die zijn Vleugels uitslaat hoog bovine uw einladen", which means, "I am Garuda, Vishnu's bird that spread its wings high above your islands". In 1950, Garuda Indonesia officially became a state owned airline in Indonesia that operated a fleet of 38 aircrafts that included 22 DC-3, 8 Convair 240, and 8 Catalina Flying Boat. It continued to grow, and made its first commercial flight to Mecca for the Indonesian hajj pilgrims in 1956. On the same year, it also flew the first flight to Europe with Amsterdam as the destination. During the 1980s, GA conducted large-scale restructuring that includes the fleet operations. During the time the company developed comprehensive training programs for both the air and ground crews. It also established a training facility for the crews in West Jakarta, the Garuda Indonesia Training Center. The development and restructuring went on, and in 2005 a new management took office. They did a re-evaluation and another restructuring that was aimed to improve the efficiency and service to the customers. After the successful completion of the restructuring, Garuda Indonesia went public on the 11th of February 2011 with the initial public offering of 6,335,738,000 shares.
