Surabaya, E Java (ANTARA News) - National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia has won an "Indonesian Most Admired Company Award" from Fortune Indonesia magazine for its success in implementing good corporate transformation program.

The award was an achievement the management of Garuda Indonesia could be proud of, Garuda technical and management director Hadinoto Soedigno said here on Wednesday.

"The achievement proves that all the efforts we have made to improve services and to conduct corporate transformation have given us good results, particularly the public`s positive perception and appreciation (of Garuda`s performance)," Hadinoto said in a press statement.

The magazine`s appreciation for Garuda`s transformation program was based on the results of a survey and research as well as on the public`s assessment of companies in Indonesia, he said.

"The assessment covered a number of aspects including leadership, management system, innovation, financial performance, corporate social responsibilities (CSR), human resources development, and development of managerial team," he said.

The award also went to other companies, including Unilever, Bank Mandiri, Telkom, Medco, BRI, Indosat, Aneka Tambang, and BCA.

Hadinoto said last year Garuda also won a number of awards from both national and international organizations in recognition of its achievement.

The awards included "Top Brand Award", "Indonesia Best Brand Award", "Annual Report Award", and "Good Corporate Governance/GCG Awards` from national organizations.

Also last year, Garuda won "World`s Most Improved Airline" from Skytrax London, an independent global airline rating agency, and "Airline Turnaround of the Year" from the Center of Asia Pacific Aviation
