Indonesia’s deputy transport minister, Bambang Susantono, said he fully expects his country’s Garuda Indonesia airline to be certified by the FAA in 2013 to resume flying to the U.S. The minister’s remarks were published in the Jakarta Globe. Garuda has been banned from flying into the U.S. for nearly six years due to numerous safety issues. Europe lifted a similar ban against Garuda in 2010.
