Kalstar Aviation is an airline based in Serpong, Indonesia. The airline was founded as "Kalstar Tour-Travel Co., Ltd" in Samarinda in December 1993 by Andi Masyhur.[1] Masyhur purchased the airline's first aircraft, an ATR 42, nicknamed KSE, in Bungay on 22 September 2008.

Although initially based in Samarinda, he formally began Kalstar Aviation in Serpong. On Kalstar Samarinda's maiden voyage, the airline flew from Samarinda to Tarakan, and later on to Nunukan.[2] The airline grew quickly. By 2010, it had added another two ATR 42s to its fleet.

In 2013, Kalstar Aviation carried over 1 million passengers. All Kalstar Aviation aircraft carry the "bird" livery on the vertical stabiliser, introduced in the late 2008.[3]

Kalstar Aviation launched the airline's mobile application, dubbed KALSTAR Mobile. Passengers can use the application to check flight arrivals and departures, and check in for their flights. The airline also provides in-flight magazine Kalstar.
