Indonesia AirAsia X Complies with Aircraft Ownership Requirement

Indonesia AirAsia X has issued a statement saying that it has complied with Indonesia’s Ministry of Transportation’s regulatory requirement of aircraft ownership as mandated by Indonesia’s Aviation Law No. 1 Year 2009.

The regulation requires every commercial scheduled airline in Indonesia to have a minimum of 10 aircraft under its fleet, of which 5 must be owned.

On 28 September 2015, Indonesia AirAsia X says it complied with the regulation by inducting 8 more aircraft to its fleet, bringing the total number of aircraft to 10.

Indonesia AirAsia X CEO, Dendy Kurniawan, said, “With a total of 10 aircraft in our fleet, we have therefore fulfilled the regulatory requirement. We are very appreciative of Indonesia’s Ministry of Transportation’s extended support and assistance during the process of complying with the aircraft ownership requirement. We remain highly committed to further expand our network to support the Indonesian aviation as well as tourism industry.”

Indonesia AirAsia X currently operates 5x weekly flights Bali - Melbourne and will commence 5x weekly Bali - Sydney flights on 17 October 2015.
