TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Transportation Ministry confirmed that the new airline carrier Super Air Jet has not yet applied for a route permit even though it had obtained an air operator certificate or AOC. The AOC certificate is given after the airline meets the technical and safety requirements.

“There has been no application so far,” said the Transportation Ministry’s Director General of Civil Aviation Novie Riyanto when contacted by Tempo on Tuesday, June 29.

According to the rules of the aviation authority, airlines can apply for a flight permit after getting a slot at the origin or destination airport. Route permits can be applied online.

Although it has not yet applied for a route permit, the new budget airline has announced its travel offer through the official website superairjet.com. The airline offers routes from Jakarta to Palembang, Pekanbaru, Medan Kualanamu, Pontianak, Padang, Batam, Lombok, Bali, and Banjarmasin.

It has also listed flight ticket prices and offers passengers 20 kilograms of free baggage allowance. However, people cannot book tickets yet.

The airline is owned by PT Kabin Kita Top and individuals. Kabin Kita Top has a majority share at 99.8 percent, while the remaining shares are held by individuals, namely Rudy Lumingkewas who is the Lion Air Director, and Achmad Hasan who is Lion Air Group Director of Commerce.

Super Air Jet is led by Ari Azhari as the president director and Redi Irawan as commissioner. PT Kabin Kita Top is a private firm established in December 2019 with Farian Kirana who is CEO of Lion Parcel as the director and Davin Kirana who is the son of Lion Air Group’s founder Rusdi Kirana as commissioner.
