Star Air was a now defunct Indonesian airline.

History[edit]

The airline was established in 2000, a period in which private companies sprang up in Indonesia after the government announced the deregulation of airlines in that country. However, like some other Indonesian private airlines (a total of 11 carriers), the Star Air's license was revoked by the government in 2008 due to inactivity.[1]
