Indonesia AirAsia X (IAAX) has received its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from the Indonesia’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
The AOC allows IAAX to proceed with its application for an operating permit and airport slots for its intended international routes. IAAX will announce the start date of its commercial operations once details have been finalised.
Granting of the new AOC, following the successful set-up of Thai AirAsia X, is in line with AirAsia X Berhad’s strategy of offering a comprehensive network with seamless connectivity. IAAX will also be the first long-haul low-fare carrier in Indonesia.
Like its sister ‘X’ companies, the airline will operate the Airbus A330-300s featuring a two-class configuration with 12 business class seats and 365 economy seats.
