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 and began commercial operations on June 30, 2000. From the first days of its creation, it threatened to become the main competitor of the largest national air carrier of Indonesia. The rapid growth of Lion Air has led to this - just a few years later, it is the largest budget enterprise in the country. The main reason for this popularity was primarily the company's desire to develop as a low-cost enterprise. It turned out that flying with Lion Air aircraft is much more profitable than flying with other airlines.

And, most importantly, the low cost of tickets does not at all mean savings on the safety or comfort of flights. Reducing the cost of flights is due to the operation of the same type of airliners, the use of secondary airports, and the maximum reduction in the time between flights. Punctuality, which is essential for such a cut, is another plus for Lion Air. Passengers save only on those services that not everyone needs.

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.

The airline Lion Air path

Lion Air is the seventh largest low-cost airline in the world and the first in its region. The company's passenger traffic is constantly growing due to the increase in the number of the air fleet and the expansion of the route network. For 2011, this figure exceeded 25 million.

Unlike companies with a similar business model, Lion Air did not abolish the business class on board its aircraft, but offers its passengers several service options. In addition, the company offers a wide range of fares, which depend on the class of service and the list of services offered during the flight.

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!
