Pacific Royale Airways was an Indonesian commercial airline which received its government flight license in November 2011.[5] It received a formal Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) in May 2012, and made its first flight on June 11, 2012.[1][3][6] It was reported in November 2012 that the airline's license had been revoked.[2]

History

In November 2011, the airline received a full service flight licence from the Indonesian government.[7] A final proving flight, the last requirement for AOC issuance, was conducted on April 21, 2012. Pacific Royale received its AOC on May 29, 2012, and began commercial operations in June 2012.[6] The airline's chairman is Indian businessman Tarun Trikha, who is also the head of convicted pyramid scheme TVI Express.[8][9]

In August 2012, CEO Samurdra Sukardi resigned, due to a dispute with the shareholders regarding the terms of his new contract. [10]

In October 2012, flight operations were stopped due to maintenance reasons. The airline promised that operations would resume on October 16, 2012, but the fleet remained grounded the following day.[11] Pacific Royale's flight license was revoked the following month.[2] It is currently listed as "ceased operation in 2012".

Fleet

In order to meet minimum requirements for commercial flight operations, Pacific Royale planned to operate a fleet of ten aircraft. The fleet was to include five Fokker-50 turboprop airliners, all bought from Ethiopian Airlines,[12] and five leased jet airliners – four Airbus A320s and one Airbus A330. Two Fokker-50s flew at the airline's initial launch, with more Fokkers and Airbuses entering service in the following months.[7][4]

Destinations

In May 2012, Pacific Royale Airways won approval to fly 62 domestic routes and 11 international routes.[3] The airline planned to use its Fokker-50s as feeders to link Surabaya, Batam City, Banyuwangi, Madiun, Pekanbaru, the Natuna Islands and Jambi. Its Airbus jets were to be used for international routes, such as Jakarta-Mumbai, Surabaya-Singapore, Surabaya-Hong Kong, Bandung-Singapore and Bandung-Kuala Lumpur.[4]
