Lion Air Group Eyes to Add 80 Planes and Open New Routes Next Year

29 December 2022 09:22 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaLion Air Group, a parent company of privately-owned airlines, targeted to add more planes than this year in 2023. The company’s president director Daniel Putut Kuncoro Adi hoped there will be 80 more aircraft.

“Because geographically and demographically, we still need air transportation. So we are optimistic to provide air transportation in Indonesia,” he told Tempo at Pos Bloc Jakarta on Wednesday, December 28, 2022.

In 2022, the airline managed to increase its fleet by 43, or around 50 percent of the target. Apart from adding airlines, it also planned to add international and domestic flight routes.

For international routes, the new flights were planned to head to South Asia and Southeast Asia, including Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India, and Pakistan. “We have explored that. And hopefully, it will be realized in 2023,” he said.

As for Southeast Asia, the new flight routes will be to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

The addition of these flights, Daniel went on, includes all airlines that are members of the Lion Air Group, viz. Batik Air, Lion Air, Wings Air, Thai Lion Air, and Super Air Jet. At present, the airline group has 317 aircraft, consisting of domestic and international flights.
