Lion Air (PT Lion Mentari Airlines) belongs to a group of most popular Indonesian privately owned airlines and the world's fastest-growing carrier. Founded in 1999 by Rusdi Kirana, it begun operating in June 2000 with a single route: Jakarta to Pontianak.

In 2011 it carried almost 27 million of passengers.
