Bluebird Nordic Holding to Create Indonesian Cargo Carrier | New

The new carrier, BBN Airlines Indonesia, was established by BBN Cargo Airlines Holdings in late August.

“With the growth of exports and imports and the rapidly expanding trend of e-commerce, Indonesia has a bright future for its air cargo and logistics industry,” said Commissioner of BBN Cargo Airlines Holdings, Martynas Grigas.
Grigas – formerly of Air Baltic and MRO company FL Technics Indonesia – says the development of the new carrier is a “great opportunity”.
“Indonesia is the largest and fastest growing internet economy and is expected to account for half of all e-commerce transactions in Southeast Asia by 2025,” he said. declared.
BBN Airlines Indonesia aims to obtain its carrier license by the end of this year and hopes to obtain its air operator certificate in the second quarter of next year.
It has yet to disclose operational details, but Bluebird Nordic uses a fleet of Boeing 737 freighters, including different variants, including the -800.
