Xpress Air established itself as a Domestic Regular Airline that offers direct flights to the Eastern parts of Indonesia, with its first leap in the year 2005 and from 2014 served international routes to Malaysia. Beginning with its two Boeing 737s, Xpress Air became the first privately owned, scheduled airline that connects Jakarta to 24 domestic destinations like Makassar (formerly known as Ujung Pandang), Ternate, Sorong, Manokwari, and Jayapura. Makassar serves as a main hub for all flights coming from Java islands to the Eastern cities of Indonesia, while Sorong serves as a second hub in Papua, connecting remote places surrounding West Papua Area.
Xpress Air is supported by PT Aero Nusantara Indonesia (ANI), a trusted Aircraft Maintenance Provider, ensuring a pledge to safety, quality and security to its passengers.
Express Air begun commercial operations between Jayapura and Jakarta on June 23, 2003. Since then, the airline has grown to become one of the major airlines in Eastern Indonesia. Xpress Air is currently in the process of a major fleet expansion to serve more numbers of destinations along West-East Papua axis, Sulawesi, Maluku, and Nusa Tenggara region. The vision to also offer routes to the western regions has been met as Xpress Air has begun connecting people to Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Kalimantan, Pontianak and more.
The year 2012 embarked a new journey for Xpress Air with a new branding name (from Express Air to Xpress Air to represent a more modern and customer-friendly airline), a new strategy and a fresh new slogan "Terbanglah Indonesia", holding close to its heart the same culture and tradition of a friendly airline with new, modern advancements and motivation
