The Ministry of Transportation has delivered a formal Air Operating Certificate (AOC) to the commissioners and directors of Mandala Airlines.
The certificate was signed on February 20, 2012, to allow flight operations to commence on April 4, 2012, using three Airbus A320 aircraft.
As quoted by Bisnis.com, Bambang S. Ervan, spokesman for the Transportation Ministry, confirmed that the AOC was only delivered one month after its actual signing.
Mandala Airlines ceased operations on January 13, 2011, when it was unable to meet financial obligations for the lease of aircraft used to serve their customers.
Mandala Airlines will return to the skies flying initially on routes between Jakarta-Singapore-Medan-Singapore-Jakarta and Jakarta-Singapore-Denpasar (Bali)-Jakarta.
PT Angkasa Pura II, the airport authority for Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, confirmed there are two Airbus 320s with Mandala liveries parked at terminal 3 of Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. He also confirmed that the airport operators had been asked to prepare for the delivery of a third Airbus before April 4, 2012.
