KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is ready to resume it's interline agreement with Garuda Indonesia, after the Indonesian flag carrier was allowed back into European airspace. The Air France KLM country manager for Indonesia, Axel Colen, said the interline agreement with Garuda had been in place long before the latter was banned from European airspace. He added that both airlines were working to enable their ticketing system "to talk to each other in issuing the e-tickets". An interline agreement allows two airlines to have two different flights on one ticket, thus reducing the hassle for travelers. When asked when would KLM would ink a code-share agreement with Garuda, Colen said it would be the second stage after the interline agreement.
