BBN Airlines Indonesia, a part of Avia Solutions Group, has added three Boeing 737-800s and one Boeing 737-400F to its fleet to strengthen the airline’s position in the Indonesian aviation sector. The addition of these aircraft is a strategic step for BBN Airlines Indonesia to improve its charter flight services in Indonesia.
The acquisition was carried out in November 2023. Currently, the aircraft are undergoing a maintenance check process and are expected to be ready to serve unscheduled passenger charter flights in early March 2024, with domestic and international routes.
Martynas Grigas, Chairman of BBN Airlines Indonesia, said, “With the addition of these aircraft, we are very confident that we can increase the number of load factors and also be able to open new routes in the future. By early 2024, BBN Airlines Indonesia already has six aircraft in total and the addition of these aircraft is a significant step in developing our fleet to meet the demands of the growing market.”
Furthermore, Grigas also revealed that BBN Airlines Indonesia will continue to focus on unscheduled passenger charter flight and air cargo transportation services. It is hoped that in the future, BBN Airlines Indonesia can continue to increase its fleet and meet the demand for domestic and international flights. This is part of the strategic expansion of the parent company, Avia Solutions Group, in the Asia-Pacific region, where the company is currently making significant investments.
Since obtaining an air operator certificate (AOC) for cargo services in August 2023, BBN Airlines Indonesia continues to gain great trust from various parties. One of them is the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which has given BBN Airlines Indonesia a mandate to become an airline that sends 20 tonnes of materials and raw materials to support the rehabilitation of Port Vila International Airport in Vanuatu, also with the Ministry of Health Republic Indonesia in delivering rotavirus vaccine (ROTAVAC) from India and another humanitarian aid mission.
