Sky Aviation is positioned as a full-service carrier that serves smaller cities and towns.
The airline currently operates five Fokker 50s and one Fokker 100. It owns these aircraft, says Ardhi, noting that the airline added the Fokker 100 recently after buying it from another Indonesian carrier. He declines to say from whom it bought the Fokker 100, but an industry executive familiar with the type in Indonesia says Sky Aviation purchased it from charter carrier Premiair.
Ardhi says the carrier’s Fokker 100 has 24 business-class and 13 VIP seats. He does not plan to add more of the type. Sky Aviation uses the Fokker 100 for charter flights, mostly for Indonesia’s oil and gas industry, says Ardhi, whose family has a company called Petroneks, which supplies drilling equipment to the local oil and gas industry. Sky Aviation’s Fokker 50s fly scheduled flights from four hubs in Indonesia: Batam, Denpasar (Bali) and Pekanbaru and Pangkal Pinang.
