Adam Air was a privately owned airline based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It operated scheduled domestic services to over 20 cities and international services to Penang and Singapore. Its main base was Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Jakarta.
Although sometimes referred to as a low-cost carrier, it marketed itself as an airline straddled between low-cost and traditional carriers, offering both on-board meal service and low fares.
The airline was established in 2002 and began operations in December 2003. In March 2008, the Indonesian government suspended the airline’s Air Operator Certificate. In June 2008 the Indonesian authorities definitively revoked Adam Air’s AOC, banning it from flying permanently.
