Indonesian BAe 146 operator Penas Air appears to have suspended operations, at least with their BAe 146-100 PK-VKD (msn E1104), which has been parked at Medan’s Polonia airport, on North Sumatra, since at least the beginning of July. Reports from early in the year indicated that staff had not been paid for several months. In April, the Indonesian Ministry of State-Owned Enterprises announced that Penas would be merged with PT Surveyor Indonesia, another state-owned enterprise.


Any details on Penas Air’s operations would be extremely welcome. Please contact the editor.
