(2/23/2012)

It now appears certain that Mandala Airlines will soon be airborne once again following the issuance of a new Air Operator Certificate (AOC) on Monday, February 20, 2012. The Director General of Civil Aviation, Herry Bakti Singayuda Gumay, confirmed that the AOC had been issued following Mandala’s successful completion of the government requirements on aircraft ownership.

Quoted in Bisnis.com, Herry said: “The AOC for Mandala was signed on Monday, February 20, 2012. Mandala is ready to fly in April.”

In meeting official requirements imposed on commercial airlines, Mandala is operating two Airbus A-320 aircraft that are now parked at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport. Herry advises that Mandala has confirmed its commitment to operate 10 aircraft by December 2012. The entire fleet will be comprised of Airbus equipment.

In keeping with Aviation Law No. 1 of 2009, Mandala has advanced a formal business plan to the government underlining its preparedness to operate the minimum 10 aircraft required for an Indonesian passenger airline to undertake commercial operations. Of that minimum, at least five of the aircraft must be owned directly by the airline.

Although Mandala is now holding the mandatory AOC, Herry told the press that the Company has yet to be issued route permits by the Ministry of Transportation.

Mandala Airline is expected to operate from Terminal 3 at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport. That terminal will be shared with AirAsia, Wing Air and another new carrier Pacific Royale.

The Commissioner of Mandala, Diono Nurjadi, said the airline will initially operate with three Airbus A320 aircraft, gradually increasing its fleet to 10 planes by December 2012. Diono said the routes to be operated by Mandala will not vary significantly from the routes originally flown by the airline prior to its closure.

Mandala formerly flew 16 domestic routes and four international routes, including Singapore. During the initial phase of operations Mandala will focus on its Singapore route.

Mandala ceased operations on January 13, 2011, when the company leasing aircraft to the Company withdrew the entire fleet.
