Indonesia’s Cardig Air adds to its freighter fleet

Indonesian all-cargo operator Cardig Air has leased a Boeing 737-400F from leasing and specialist MRO organisation Vallair.
Following conversion in the US, final compliance checks were carried out at Vallair’s facility in Montpellier, France before the aircraft was delivered to Jakarta mid-May.
Head of Vallair’s cargo conversions business unit, Peter Koster, said the plane would operate between Jakarta, Saigon and Shenzhen in Southern China.
He added: “There is strong potential in the Southeast Asian airfreight market with rapidly increasing connections to the Chinese mainland. We have supported Cardig Air in their move from operating a B737-300F to the B737-400F model with increased cargo capacity. We are confident that our on-going assistance will help to underpin their development and build a long term business partnership.”
Cardig Air has two bases in west and east Indonesia and operates domestic, regional and international cargo scheduled and charter services with B737-300 and 400 freighter aircraft.
Its fleet also includes several Airbus and Boeing aircraft that have been recently been purchased and are currently on lease for passenger operations but form part of the feeder stock for its cargo conversion programme.
