On March 7, 2007 a Boeing 737 aircraft being operated by Garuda Indonesia as a domestic flight from Jakarta to Yogyakarta, Indonesia overran the runway, crashed, and burst into flames at Adisucipto International Airport. Of the 133 and 7 crew members on board, 20 passengers and 1 crew member died. Garuda Indonesia has one of the worst safety records among the world’s national air carriers. Following the crash, the European Union banned all Indonesian airlines, including Garuda Indonesia, from flying into the EU. The ban was lifted in 2009 after widespread reforms were implemented.
