[Avionics Today 01-13-2015] Embraer announced today that two Embraer E195 E-jets will start operations with Kalstar Aviation, a regional operator based in the Indonesian province of Kalimantan on Borneo Island. The start of operations mark Kalstar as the first E-jet operator in Indonesia.
The E195s will operate to and from Kalimantan on routes within Indonesia. The two aircraft are being sourced from Aldus Aviation, Ireland.
“Indonesia’s geography presents an ideal platform for the E-Jets. Its secondary and tertiary cities spread across many islands offer opportunities for enhanced connectivity and frequency,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, president and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation.
