New low-cost carrier Super Air Jet will soon take to Indonesia's skies, with a focus on the millennials.
In a written statement on 3 May, the carrier’s chief executive Ari Azhari said the launch of the privately-owned carrier is based on a positive optimism of Indonesia's domestic market, especially demand from the millennials.
According to local data by Statistics Indonesia, 2.6 million passengers took domestic trips in March, representing a 39% jump from February 2021.
The local industry is abuzz over Super Air Jet's possible link to Lion Air Group, where Azhari was general manager at. Ownership of the new budget carrier is still unknown.
Super Air Jet will initially target domestic flights, although Azhari has signalled that international operations would be on the radar in future.
Passengers will fly on the Airbus 320-200 which offers 180 economy class seats.
