Riau Air: the essential airline guide


Based in Pekanbaru on the Sumatran island, Riau Airlines is a medium sized Indonesian carrier owned be a local government. It was established in 2002 and initially was formed to connect cities within Riau, however after some time the airline expanded their operations to all major Sumatran cities, as well as Bali, Kalimantan and East Indonesia.

In 2008, the airline was shut down due to financial and regulatory problems. In January 2011, after a cash injection from the government, some of the routes were resumed and the airline was renamed to Riau Air. More routes are planned for reopening as soon as Riau Air will receive more aircraft.
