Waterloo, ON – March 12, 2015
– Navtech, a leader in flight operations software and services, signed flag carrier Garuda Indonesia earlier this year to provide a hosted Navtech Flight Plan service. This multi-year agreement further expands Navtech’s presence into the Asia Pacific Region. 

Adopting Navtech Flight Plan is part of Garuda Indonesia’s new level of service excellence initiative to transform and provide better services.
