BBN Airlines Indonesia has acquired four Boeing 737 aircraft as it seeks to build a fleet of 40 planes by 2027.
BBN Airlines Indonesia, a part of Avia Solutions Group, the world’s largest ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance) provider, reached agreements for three Boeing 737-800 and one Boeing 737-400F in November 2023.
All four 737s are currently undergoing maintenance checks and are expected to be ready to serve unscheduled domestic and international passenger charter flights by early March 2024.
Martynas Grigas, Chairman of BBN Airlines Indonesia, said: “With the addition of these fleets, we are very confident that we can increase the number of load factors and also be able to open new routes in the future. By early 2024, BBN Airlines Indonesia already has six aircraft in total, and the addition of these fleets is a significant step in developing our fleet to meet the demands of the growing market.”
Martynas also revealed that BBN Airlines Indonesia will continue to focus on unscheduled passenger charter flight and air cargo transportation services.
The increase in BBN Airlines Indonesia’s fleet is part of the strategic expansion of Avia Solutions Group within the Asia-Pacific region, where the company is currently making significant investments.
“This additional fleet will also support ‘s strategic plan to be able to operate a total of 40 aircraft by the end of 2027. We are optimistic that the mission carried out by BBN Airlines Indonesia can strengthen the Indonesian aviation sector as a whole, both on a domestic and international market scale,” Martynas added.
