Our Values

We Make People Fly

Lion Air is a subsidiary of PT. Langit Esa Oktagon (PT. LEO Group) which is part of the wider Lion Group. As a leading domestic airline and disciplined low-cost carrier, we offer flights to value-conscious customers who focus on price, frequency of flights, and an expansive route network across Indonesia.


Our Story

Since our first flight in 2000, Lion Air has grown rapidly to become Indonesia’s preferred domestic airline. In 2018, we carried 36.8 million passengers – nearly 35% of all air travelers in the country – to the islands, cities and communities of the archipelago. Our business is also uniquely structured for growth as the only local carrier of air cargo between Indonesian destinations.

Our success in becoming the country’s leading low-cost carrier has been built on delivering exceptional fare value to customers, ensuring convenient flight schedules and creating a route network vital to the interests of the 260 million people in Southeast Asia’s most populous nation. IATA estimates that by 2037, Indonesia will be the fourth biggest aviation market in the world and Lion Air is proud to be playing a leading role in the country’s development.

Since 2018, we have strategically expanded our passenger services to select international markets including Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and China. Our focus, however, has remained the same – cost-efficient operations and an absolute commitment to providing value-conscious passengers and cargo customers with the lowest cost option to all of our destinations.
