Cardig Air is a cargo airline with its head office and home base at Jakarta, Indonesia. It operates scheduled all-cargo services across Asia and Indonesia as well as charter services to various domestic and regional destinations.

Cardig Air owns and operates three Boeing 737-300 aircraft which had been converted to freighters. Cardig Air operates scheduled international flights connecting Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, and Shenzhen, as well as scheduled domestic flights connecting Jayapura and Wamena.


Cardig Air was established in April 2004. In July 2008, a group of investors injected new capital and acquired majority stake in Cardig Air from PT Cardig International. The new management replaced the company's Boeing 737-200Cs with higher-capacity and more fuel-efficient Boeing 737-300Fs.

In 2008, Cardig Air leased its first two 737-300Fs, which arrived in Jakarta that October; and full operations started in January 2009, serving customers on both a scheduled and charter basis. In 2012, Cardig Air added another Boeing 737-300F to its fleet.

In 2016, Cardig Air launched a China – Vietnam - Indonesia route and became the first Indonesian cargo airline that operates scheduled flights between the three countries.


Cardig Air operates scheduled and charter freighter services with a focus on intra-Asia destinations, providing transportation linkages in Indonesia, South East Asia and China. Scheduled destinations include:
