Holiday With Family
"Check-in: Perfect BUT at that time there were no officers to believe that my family is carrying a baby for incoming calls while the plane was last call Airplane: The plane was nice clean and fragrant, perhaps because it is supported by the new Boeing 737-800NG Cabin Crew: Everything is very friendly, good stewards and stewardesses!!! Only one flight attendant were very ignorant and do not care about the passengers on behalf Stewardess Dwi Lestari Supplement: Yellow rice food was good, but to drink can not be shared on request only mineral water That's just my experience when departing with Sriwijaya Please enhanced services!!!"
Delayed but still satisfied
"It did not start so good as when we checked in we were informed the flight was 1.5 hours delayed, it turned out it would be 2 hours, but well in Indonesia that's pretty normal these days... The airplane was bit old but still ok, especially the snack was very good: we got a boc containing water, kind of cake and a something croissant like, Pretty tasty and comparable to Garuda. All in all quiet satisfied!"
Sriwijaya Air is an Indonesian airline offering mostly domestic flights within Indonesia and a few international destinations. It is the third largest airline in Indonesia after Lion Air and Garuda and still fully privately owned.
Sriwijaya started flying in 2003 and has experienced rapid growth since. From its base in Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta Airport it is now flying to over 30 destinations with 35 aircraft carrying over 800.000 passengers per month. Its fleet consists of Boeings, mostly 737-500 and the new 737-800 and 900.
Sriwijaya is not a low-cost airline in the normal sense. Although its prices are comparable to low-cost airlines it wants to offer a full-service package. It is currently re-configuring its entire fleet to add business class seats and the free snack you currently get will be improved into a light meal. Sriwijaya also offers a 20 kilo free checked baggage.

Sriwijaya Air was founded in 2003 by the Lie family (Hendry and Chandra Lie), Johannes Bundjamin and Andy Halim. Together they wanted to start an airline which would connect the whole archipelago. The name Sriwijaya is based on the old Srivijaya empire which roughly encompassed current Sumatra, Java and Peninsular Malaysia in the 7th till 13th century. The word Srivijaya itself is Sanskrit and a contraction of the two words Sri (meaning fortunate or happy) and Vijaya (meaning victorious or excellence).
Sriwijaya Air began flying in 2003 with flights between Jakarta and Pangkal Pinang (on Bangka Island). Soon other routes followed such as Jakarta Pontionak (Borneo) and Jakarta Palembang (Sumatra) and in a five years time Sriwijaya Air flew to 30 destinations with over 20 aircraft. Since then, around 2009, Sriwijaya Air faced increased competition by Lion Air and growth stalled. While Lion Air owns and operates brand-new Boeing 737-900 Sriwijaya Air still used second-hand and leased twenty-year old airplanes.
The last years Sriwijaya Air has put its energy not so much in expansion of new destinations but in a fleet renewal program. The airline has bought its first brand-new 737-900 airplanes as well and will retire its entire 737 Classic fleet by leasing and buying newer aircraft. In 2013 Sriwijaya Air launched its subsidiary NAM air, which will fly on minor routes, feeding passengers on Sriwijaya Air flights on the main routes.
