Indonesian national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia recorded a net loss in Q1 of 2013 amounting to US$33.7 million, a worsening by 215% over the results reported by the Airline in Q1 2012. quoted the CEO of Garuda, Emirsyah Satar, who blamed the drop in profitability on reduced demand for seats affecting many carriers internationally.

And, while the Airline suffered losses in Q1, Garuda's income actually experienced a 12.5% increase from US$717.4 million in 2012 to US$807.2 million for the first quarter of 2013.

Garuda Indonesia Group’s market share increased from 30,3% to 35.2% in Q1 2013, These market share figure also include Garuda’s subsidiary Citilink who managed to increase their market share in Q1 from 3% to 6.9%.

Passenger uplift by Garuda during Q1 2013 increased 20.7% to 5.56 million passengers. Meanwhile, cargo uplift increased 24.2% totaling 81.300 tons.

Flight frequencies flown by Garuda increased 23.5% operating 44,224 flights during the first quarter of 2013.
