In 2008 some 37 million people took a commercial domestic flight, down 2 million passengers from the total passengers carried in 2007.

The deregulation of commercial aviation in Indonesia has given consumers choices and competitive pricing unimaginable just a few years ago.

A recap of passengers carried provided by the Indonesian Department of Transportation shows that Garuda Indonesia is no longer the busiest domestic air carrier, having been displaced by the aggressive newcomer Lion Air who carried 19.5% more passengers than the state-owned national carrier in 2008. In fact, if the total passengers carried by the Lion Air and its subsidiary Wing Air are combined, the gap over Garuda widens further to 49.7%.

Here's a recap of total domestic passengers carried by domestic Indonesian airlines in 2008, based on figure provided by the Department of Transportation:

Lion Air - 9,147,942

Wing Abadi - 2,328.508 (A subsidiary of Lion Air)

Garuda Indonesia - 7,665,390

Batavia Air - 4,771,272

Sriwijaya Air - 4,272,876

Manadala Airlines - 3,449,218

Merpati Nusantara - 2,477,173

Indonesia AirAsia - 1,503,672

Trigana Air Service - 702,718

Linus Airways - 268,203

Travel Express - 267,371
