JAKARTA (The Jakarta Post/ANN): Indonesia is welcoming Super Air Jet (SAJ), a new low-cost carrier reportedly backed by Lion Air Group, to the market at a time when the aviation industry is working its way out of a slump caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Transportation Ministry has issued an air operator’s certificate (AOC) for the new airline, allowing SAJ, which currently has three Airbus A320s, to operate aircraft for commercial purposes.
