The Imperial Garuda Klatenian Airways, commonly shortened as Imperial Garuda, is the flag carrier of Klatenia, headquartered at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Banten. An indirect successor of the previous Garuda Indonesian Airways, it is the second-largest airline of Klatenia after Singapore Airlines, operating scheduled flights to several destinations across Asia, Europe, and Australia from its hubs, focus cities, and other cities for Hajj.
As part of the Imperial Government's effort to reconnect the Indonesian archipelago, the Imperial Garuda operated an extensive network of flights across the country and the world. Following the agreement with the Malayan Union in 2016, the Malaysian Airline System was acquired and integrated into the Imperial Garuda, immensely expanding its fleet and flight network. In 2017, the airline undertook a five-year modernization plan known as the Quantum Leap, which overhauled the airline's brand, service protocol, and uniforms, as well as a newer, more modern fleet and facilities and a renewed focus on international markets.
The airline also operated a budget subsidiary, Garuda Citilink, which provided low-cost flights to multiple Klatenian destinations and was spun off in 2015. In November 2020, Garuda took over operations and financial management of Singapore Airlines through a cooperation agreement (KSO), owning its market share of over 48 percent.
