Quoted by, the CEO of Garuda Indonesia, Emirsyah Satar, said “these steps have been take to rejuvenate the fleet next year by phasing out seven Boeing 737-400s.” He explained that the sale of aircraft to the Nigerian airline was done through an open auction conducted in September 2011. Adding, “the plan is for these four airplanes to be delivered next year with the four aircraft now undergoing repairs.”

Emirsyah explained that Garuda has also sold one plane to the Indonesian Air Force and another to an unnamed Indonesian air carrier.
The financial director of Garuda Indonesia, Elisa Lumbantoruan, confirmed that the price of each plane sole to the Nigerians ranged between US$ 3 - US$5 million.
