A new full-service airline, from Lion Air.
Today (3 May 2013), a new full-service airline will take to Indonesia’s skies:
Lion Air is reaching out to passengers who perhaps like a little more comfort than Lion’s current economy class offering, but baulk at the much higher cost of Lion’s business class service.
Is it worth paying a little extra to fly Batik Air? Here is a comparison of each airline’s economy and business classes:
|20 kg||20 kg||30 kg||30 kg|
|Rp1 110 000
|Rp1 280 000
|Rp3 090 000
|Rp4 415 000
It is unconfirmed how Batik Air’s stewardesses (right) will stack up against the competition.
Initially, Batik Air will fly between Jakarta and the following cities: Ambon, Balikpapan, Manado, Pekanbaru. More domestic routes will be opened shortly, and perhaps some international routes too; these are still to be be confirmed, but are rumoured to include Kupang to Darwin and Denpasar to Adelaide.
Whatever their business plan, it is hoped that Batik Air performs better than the last full-service domestic airline to commence operations in Indonesia – Pacific Royale – which remains grounded indefinitely.

If i want to change the date after booking the penalty fee would be how much?
If it’s the same as Lion Air (it probably is), the penalty for date changes > 48 hours before departure is Rp75 000 plus any difference in fare between the old ticket price and the new ticket price.
You would need to visit a Lion Air office in person – it cannot be done online – and bring photo ID, the tickets, proof of payment and money.
