BBN Airlines Indonesia has recently obtained an additional Air Operator Certificate (AOC) for commercial passenger flights.

BBN Airlines Indonesia has been serving passengers with regional air transportation services for several years.

Martynas Grigas, Chairman of BBN Airlines Indonesia, stated, “With the issuance of this AOC, BBN Airlines Indonesia aims to bring more capacity to the region, and deliver a high standard of safety and service in the air travel experience.”

The Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) was recently issued by the national aviation regulator DGCA. It authorizes the airline to operate commercial flights within specific geographic regions.

This effectively opens up new opportunities for route expansion and fleet development. BBN Airlines Indonesia now expands its operational capabilities, allowing it to cater to a broader customer base.

With this certification, the airline will enhance its flight frequency, introduce new routes, and optimize its network for improved connectivity.

The acquisition of an additional AOC will have a transformative impact on BBN Airlines Indonesia’s operations.

It enables the airline to strengthen its market position, increase its revenue streams, and offer more choices to passengers.

Additionally, enhanced operational flexibility will enable BBN Airlines Indonesia to respond effectively to market dynamics and customer demands.

Expansion Plans and Future Prospects

Buoyed by the acquisition of the additional AOC, BBN Airlines Indonesia is poised for rapid expansion in the coming years.

The airline plans to capitalize on its strengthened operational capabilities by launching new routes, expanding its fleet, and enhancing its service offerings.

This strategic growth trajectory further positions BBN Airlines Indonesia in the Indonesian aviation sector.

“In addition to the considerable demand for domestic flights, there is also high demand from India and China,” Martynas added.

“Therefore, BBN Airlines Indonesia has organized its operational area, covering the Asia-Pacific region, allowing the company to not only serve domestic needs but also cater to requests from neighboring countries in that region.”


Established in 2022, the carrier is relatively new, but leverages the experience of its parent company, Avia Solutions Group.
