Indonesia Merpati to Fly Classic Boeing
This year, additional classic 737 Boeing aircrafts will be transported in stages.
VIVAnews – Amid internal financial deficit, PT Merpati Nusantara Airlines will operate 17 classic Boeing 737 jets until the end of 2012. In the meantime, the ARJ 21-700 jets ordered last February will start arriving in 2014.
Merpati Director of Operations, (Capt) Asep Eka Nugraha, said the Indonesian carrier currently operates nine units of Boeing 737 which consist of two 737-400, five 737-300, one 737-500, and one 737-200.
“In total, there are 28 aircrafts which include nine Boeing jets, 14 units of MA-60, two units of CASA 212, and three units of Twin Otter,” he said in Jakarta, on Wednesday.
This year, additional classic 737 Boeing aircrafts will be transported in stages. Nine aircrafts are owned by Merpati and another eight are aircraft charters. With the additional jets, Merpati is targeting an annual income of Rp3.5 trillion by flying 5.5 million people.
Meanwhile, the ARJ 21-700 jets manufactured by Commercial Aircraft Corp of China Ltd (Comac) and Avic International Holding Corp with the capacity of 100 passengers will arrive by 10 units per year between 2014 and 2017.
Moreover, Merpati also conducts internal reform with a plan to improve its on-time performance and load factor level through a variety of programs. Merpati promises its passengers free tickets if the flight is delayed for more than three hours, one hour ahead of the Ministry of Transportation Regulation No. 22/2011.
