JAKARTA -- A court in Indonesia on Friday extended embattled national airline Garuda Indonesia's suspension of debt payment obligations for 60 more days, as the company works to restructure its finances and stave off possible bankruptcy.

The state-owned carrier is negotiating with creditors under a suspension mechanism known as PKPU, which it entered after a local information technology company took it to court for unpaid debts.
