JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia’s PT Garuda Maintenance Facility AeroAsia (GMF AeroAsia) will pick Airfrance-KLM group’s maintenance, repair and overhaul unit as a strategic investor after narrowing down a list of potential partners, a GMF AeroAsia executive said.
PT Garuda Indonesia Tbk’s CEO said in October the flag carrier estimated its unit GMF AeroAsia could raise $200 million from selling a 20 percent stake to a strategic buyer.
GMF AeroAsia has a longstanding partnership with Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance.
Corporate secretary Mohammad Arif Faisal also told reporters on Monday that GMF AeroAsia would seek shareholders’ approval for a 20 percent stake sale in March and expects a deal would be signed soon after.
