Indonesia AirAsia Extra (IAAX) has received its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from the country’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
The approval means that the AirAsia X Berhad affiliate can now proceed with its application for an operating permit and airport slots for its planned international routes.
The move allows AirAsia X to expand its network and provide better connectivity. It also follows the successful set-up of Thai AirAsia X earlier this year.
The Thailand-based low-cost carrier inaugurated its service from Don Mueang to Seoul-Incheon on June 17, and has just launched flights to Osaka-Kansai and Tokyo-Narita earlier this month.
When launched, IAAX will be the first long-haul low-cost carrier in Indonesia. The carrier will operate a fleet of Airbus A330-300 aircraft that feature a two-class configuration, with 12 in business and 365 in economy.
