Linus Airways was a regional airline in Indonesia. It served large city destinations, such as Pekanbaru, Medan, Semarang, Palembang, Batam and Bandung. The airline name is an abbreviation of "Lintasan Nusantara" ("bridge across the archipelago").

Founded in 2004 and started operations in 2008, the airline started operation just 1 month after the demise of Adam Air, another now defunct commercial airline, which was heavily embroiled in corruption and safety violation which caused lots of financial problems and ceased operation on that year from many accidents or incidents. Linus officially started operation from Jakarta to Batam in July 2008.

The airline was on the List of air carriers banned in the European Union. Linus Airways is not listed in any category by the Indonesian Civil Aviation Authority for airline safety quality, because this airline is not operating for longer.[1]

In May 2009, the airline has decided to suspend all of its operations due to financial problems. [1]


As of 2008, Linus Airways operates the following aircraft:
