Nusantara Buana Air is an Indonesian airline serving destinations in Aceh from its hubs at Medan Polonia Airport and Banda Aceh Airport. Nusantara Buana Air is listed in category 2 by Indonesian Civil Aviation Authority for airline safety quality.[1]

It competes with Sabang Merauke Raya Air Charter for government-charters scheduled services to towns and cities within Aceh, taking over from SMAC for 2009 after SMAC operated the routes in 2008. As of January 2010, there are no flights.[1]

The ministry has also announced that any newer aircraft acquired have to use the latest generation of Ground proximity warning system (GPWS).[2]
