Jatayu Airlines (Jatayu Gelang Sejahtera) is an airline based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It operated domestic and international services from Jakarta and was established in 2000. Its main base was Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Jakarta.[1] On 26 June 2007, The Indonesian Transportation Ministry discontinued the airline's Aircraft Operator Certificate because of "the management's inability to consistently apply flight safety measurements as stipulated."[2]

The airline had plans for a relaunch using Boeing 737-200 aircraft,[3] which never materialized.

On 25 January 2014, Jatayu Air's IATA code is JZ. On 24 February 2014,Jatayu Airlines announced the first route is Batam - Bandung - Palembang - Batam Round Trip using Boeing 737 Series.

History[edit]

The Transportation Ministry in February 2007 delayed license revocation of 11 idle airlines, including PT Jatayu Gelang Sejahtera, to give restructuring opportunities to the operators. The airline has re-applied for licences.[4]

In March 2007 the Indonesian transport ministry, under huge political pressure to improve air safety in Indonesia, warned it will close seven airlines unless they improve training and maintenance within the next three months. The ministry developed a formula for ranking the airlines in three bands. Those in the third (least safe) band are: Adam Air, Batavia Air, Jatayu Airlines, Kartika Airlines, Manunggal Air Services, Transwisata Prima Aviation and Tri-MG Intra Asia Airlines.[3]
