Merpati: the essential airline guide


Merpati Nusantara Airlines is a second largest Indonesian airline, based in Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta. The airline was established in 1962 by the Indonesian government and now it operates domestic flights to 80 destinations in Indonesia and also has international flights to Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) and East Timor (Dili). Currently, Merpati is owned by the Indonesian Government (93.2%) and the flag national carrier Garuda Indonesia (6.8%).
