Manunggal Air Services is an airline based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It operates charter passenger and cargo services within Indonesia and neighbouring regions. Its main base is Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, Jakarta.
The airline was established and started operations in 1997.
In March 2007 the Indonesian transport ministry, under huge political pressure to improve air safety in Indonesia, warned it would close seven airlines unless they improved training and maintenance within the following 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.
