On the B737-500 of NAM air

Full review on the link

One of the interesting airline which I have come across in Indonesia has been NAM Air. The airline which is part of the larger Sriwijaya Airline Group was founded in 2013 as a feeder to the parent and operates 11 B737-500 aircraft with an average age of over 22 years. The airline also operates two ATR72 aircraft.

The 737-500 with winglets are configured in 8 Business Class seats and 112 in economy. This would be my first time on the B735. Less than 400 air frames were built of this type, the least in the entire B737 family.

Research & Booking

The booking was done on Traveloka along with the inbound Batik Air flight. It has been a while since I flew on an aircraft that cannot be tracked on FlightRadar24 and this also meant that it was difficult to track the inbound and outbound link and aircraft rotation.

The PNR from the OTA was available on the Sriwijaya website (NAM Air website redirects to Sriwijaya) and the simple mobile application allowed check-in very easily. I selected a window seat just ahead of the wing to get a good view of the engine. However, the time of the day and just half a window for row 6 meant that I couldn’t get any pictures though I enjoyed the view.

Airport Information

Yogyakarta is served by Adisutjipto International Airport with a single runway which is 2200 mtr in length. The airport is managed by Angkasa Pura – the state run Airport Management Company of Indonesia. The airport terminal is sandwiched between the runway and a railway line. The airport is currently undergoing massive upgradation with apron expansion and terminal expansion to cater to the ever growing traffic.

The airport was destroyed in earthquake of 2006 and has been shut for operations during volcano eruption from nearby Mt. Merapati as well. Due to congestion and on-going

Exotic Indonesian carriers and locations, and a rare aircraft type. It doesn't get batter than that! Lovely background and history, and of course, descriptions which only you can write down.
Interesting colour chart!
Cheers, Sumantra.
