In 2000 following our establishment, Lion Air proudly rolled out a fleet of just two Boeing 737-200 aircraft. Today, we have 118 -- including the Boeing 737-900ER, Boeing 737-800, Boeing 737 MAX 8 and Airbus A330-300 -- to meet passenger demand.
Our fleet is one of the newest in the business, and we have taken the initiative to partner with internationally recognized organisations including OEMs (Boeing, Airbus, Honeywell), export credit agencies (EXIM, ECA), Banks (DBJ, BNP, Citi) and Lessors (GECAS, BOCA, Avolon) to improve our processes, including safety practices.
Ours is a high-capacity and largely uniform fleet that is also fuel-efficient and with an average age of just 6.73 years. Such a young fleet of predominantly Boeing 737 family aircraft delivers efficiencies, including low maintenance costs and operational reliability, which are a win-win for Lion Air and our passengers.
Our aircraft configurations maximise space and seat availability but with the onus on crating the very best on-board experience.
