What is Super Air Jet?

Super Air Jet is a new Indonesian airline (founded in March 2021), with a focus on the millennial generation aviation market. Being a ULCC (Ultra Low-Cost Carrier) it targets low-budget travelers offering cheap flights in Indonesia (with plans to expand to international routes in the near future).

Flight bookings

Indonesia’s Super Air Jet has begun flying its first passengers in August 2021. Flight bookings are open on the airline website as well as on Tiket2.

The fleet

Super Jet Air will build a narrowbody fleet consisting of Airbus 320-200 aircraft with a capacity of 180 seats in an all-economy configuration. Its first plane, 10-years old A320 with the registration code PK-SAJ, has been leased from IndiGo (an Indian LCC) and is now in storage at Hang Nadim International Airport in Batam.

Additionally, Avolon Holdings (the main lessor of the Lion Group), CDB Aviation, and ICBC Leasing are in discussions to lease up to 30 new aircraft to Super Air Jet.

Super Air Jet ticket prices

Super Air Jet will start its first season with competitive prices for selected domestic routes. Flights from Jakarta to Bali will cost IDR 426,000 (~ $29.5 / A$39), from Jakarta to Palembang IDR 252,000 (~ $17 / A$ 23), from Jakarta to Pontianak IDR 385,000 (~ $26 / A$35), from Jakarta to Medan IDR 536,000 (~ $37 / A$49) and from Jakarta to Padang IDR 440,000 (~ $30 / A$40). It’s 10-30% cheaper than the airfares offered by the competition.

Super Air Jet has not yet announced its plans for other popular routes in Indonesia, such as Jakarta – Surabaya or Jakarta – Yogyakarta.

Is Super Air Jet a new Lion Air?

Who is operating Super Air Jet?

Super Air Jet is owned by Farian and Davin Kirana, the sons of Rusdi and Kusnan Kirana, who both founded the Lion Air group in 1999.

According to records from Kementerian Hukum dan Hak Asasi Manusia (the Indonesian Ministry of Law and Human Rights), the airline is managed through the PT Kabin Kita Top, a company that owns 99,8 % of PT Super Air Jet. Rudy Lumingkewas (CEO of Lion Air Group) and Achmad Hasan (Director of Trade in Lion Air Group) own the remaining 0.2% of shares in PT Super Air Jet.

The new part of Lion Air Group?

Lion Air is owned by Indonesian-Chinese tycoons Rusdi and Kusnan Kirana. Its parent company Lion Air Group, with a portfolio of local brands: Batik Air, Malindo Air, Thai Lion Air, and Wings Air, dominates the Indonesian market with over 50% market share.

Rusdi Kirana is said to be the founder of Super Air Jet, even though the airline spokesperson claims that Super Air Jet is not part of or a subsidiary of the Lion Air Group. However, the fact that the new SAJ’s CEO, Ari Azhari, has come from the General Manager position at Lion Air Group, and the recent injection of funds from Rusdi Kirana to Super Air Jet accounts, point to a direct connection between the two companies.
