Jakarta, (Hindustan Times), Mar 22, 2019-  Indonesia’s national carrier Garuda will call off a multi-billion-dollar order for 49 Boeing 737 Max 8 jets after two fatal crashes involving the plane, the company said Friday, in what is thought to be the first formal cancellation for the model.  


“We have sent a letter to Boeing requesting that the order be cancelled,” said Garuda spokesman Ikhsan Rosan.  “The reason is that Garuda passengers in Indonesia have lost trust and no longer have the confidence” in the plane, he said, adding that the airline was awaiting a response from Boeing.  


Garuda had already received one of the 737 MAX 8 planes, he said, part of a 50-plane order worth USD 4.9 billion at list prices when it was announced in 2014.  


Garuda is also talking to Boeing about whether or not to return the plane it has received, the spokesman told AFP.  The carrier had so far paid Boeing about USD 26 million, while Garuda’s chief told Indonesian media outlet Detik that it would consider switching to a new version of the single-aisle jet.
