Garuda Indonesia may resume flights between New Zealand and the Southeast Asian nation after a six-year hiatus, according to Auckland International Airport.

The airport company signed a memorandum of understanding with Garuda in a ceremony timed to coincide with the trade mission led by Prime Minister John Key.

It was signed by Auckland Airport chairwoman Joan Withers and Garuda chief executive Emirsyah Satar in Jakarta today, according to a statement from the airport company. Under the MOU, Auckland would be the first New Zealand port of call.

Garuda last provided a service to New Zealand in 2006, flying via Brisbane.

Auckland Airport shares were unchanged at $2.50 on the NZX today and are little changed this year.
