An initial 3-month suspension of operations announced by AWAIR - PT Air Wagon International last March 8, 2002, has been extended for an additional three months.
The initial shutdown was blamed on fierce price competition by the large number of start up airlines in Indonesia. The latest 3 month extension on that delay to resume operation is due to a lack of operating aircraft.
According to an airline spokesman, AWAIR is negotiating for the lease of 5-6 small aircraft that, if successful, will be operated on yet-to-be-disclosed routes.
