Lion Air - the largest private airline in Indonesia, operates daily scheduled flights from the main airport of the capital of 79 directions.

The airline was established in October 1999 years and started its commercial operations in June 30 2000 years. From the first days of creation, it threatened to become a major competitor of the largest national carrier of Indonesia. The rapid growth of Lion Air is brought to this - after a few years, is the largest enterprise in the country budget. The main reason for such popularity in the first place was the desire of both companies to develop low-cost venture. It turned out that the fly planes Lion Air is much more profitable than the planes of other airlines.

And, most importantly, low cost of tickets does not mean savings on the safety or comfort of flights. Reducing the cost of operations is due to the operation of the same type of aircraft, the use of secondary airports, to minimize the time between flights. Punctuality, which is an essential condition for such a reduction - another plus Lion Air. Passengers save only those services that need not everyone.

As the largest budget airline, in order to save Lion Air operates one type of aircraft - Boeing 737. Today it is the largest customer of this aircraft type. In the near future it is planned to expand the fleet to air 200 aircraft.

Flight attendants are very tough people, consultation about buying food, was struck by how rude and impatient, they are people who fly in the third grade.

Prices well very low, especially given the quality of service. And if you're lucky, you can buy a ticket is almost half the price. Every year on vacation and fly their help, with constant flight goes smoothly, probably because of the professionalism of the pilots.

Until this summer of the company about a year ago. Almost all the old planes were replaced with new models. And in the air from it, you feel a lot more confident.

Well, that before to go out of the house decided to consult the online site of the company, had a crash, suffering almost 5 hours. I imagine if it had the time to sit with your luggage at the airport. They could at least call on the phone that I have, and warn in advance. In general, even despite the fact that as a result the flight was carried out without delay a bad pellet still remained.

In March 2014 flew on this airline from Jakarta to Lombok Island. I booked tickets on the official website. There were no problems with the payment, the route receipts were sent to the e-mail when the payment was confirmed (it was three minutes). Tickets cost 4,5 thousand rubles for two (only one way). The aircraft is new - Boeing 737-900ER. But since the company is budgetary, the distance between the seats was correspondingly minimal. With my height under two meters, it's very uncomfortable. I had to sit sideways. Departed strictly on schedule. Service at a high level. I was satisfied with the airline, especially for this money. On further travel to Indonesia, I again had to use this airline.

It is necessary, how it subtly and precisely thought out! Got a lot to learn!
