Sriwijaya Air president director Chandra Lie told local media that the aircraft will arrive in stages between this October and 2015. Three will be delivered this year.

Sriwijaya Air now operates Jakarta-Singapore and Penang services and is studying the viability of commencing services between Denpasar and Perth. The airline is also eyeing China, but no details on the plan are available yet.

In the meantime, Sriwijaya Air will open its own pilot school, the National Aviation Management, in Bangka in May. The school aims at creating the manpower needed in accordance with the airline's development. (Source: Jakarta, TTG Asia)
