(7/31/2011) reports that Garuda Indonesia is targeting that the industrial dispute with their pilots will be resolve before the Lebaran Holidays in late August.

To that end, the management of Garuda will meet with the pilots who are member of the Garuda Pilot Association (APG) during the fasting month so any outstanding disagreements can be resolved.

The CEO of Garuda, Emirsyah Satar, confirmed that the airline’s management has met directly with the president of the APG, Stefanus Gerardus, to schedule the coming negotiation meetings. Said Emirsyah, “later, during the fasting month, we will sit down with the APG in order that before Lebaran we will come to an agreement.”

Emirsyah explained that the complaints of the APG, who briefly went on strike on Thursday, July 28, 2011, was not only about the differentials in wages between foreign contract pilots and Indonesian pilots. He said other problems also have to be discussed.

Garuda’s CEO said both domestic and international flights from Jakarta’s Soekarno Hatta International Airport are operating normally. If there are any delays, he said, these are occasioned by technical inspection of aircraft before take off.

The president of the APG, Stefanus Gerardus, confirmed that the strike against the airline has been suspended as of Thursday, July 29, 2011, as the result of mediation by Mustafa Abubakar, the Minister of State Owned Enterprises.

Said Stefanus: “So far the problem has only been one of communication. Now that communication channels have been opened, we hope this will also open an opportunity to help advance Garuda."
