Lion Air Kalahkan Maskapai Terbesar di Dunia

(Berita Daerah-Jawa) Lion Air, maskapai milik Rusdi Kirana yang sekarang menjabat Dubes Indonesia untuk Malaysia  berkiprah kembali sebagai pemain utama industri penerbangan di tanah air dan dunia. Lion Air terus melebarkan kepak sayap bisnisnya dengan menambah rute penerbangan maupun jumlah armadanya.

Lion Air, dikenal sebagai salah satu maskapai yang memesan pesawat terbanyak yakni sebanyak 443 pesawat. Pemesanan pesawat dalam rangka penambahan rute penerbangan yang baru.  Di akhir Mei lalu, Boeing mengirim pesawat jenis 737 Max edisi perdana kepada Lion Air.  Lion Air mengalahkan maskapai terbesar di dunia yakni America Airlines yang hanya memesan 285 unit, demikian disampaikan kepada Beritadaerah.co.id, Jumat (30/6).

Setelah Lion Air, maskapai yang memesan pesawat dengan jumlah banyak yakni United Airlines yang memesan 264 pesawat, Southwest Airlines (262), Delta Airlines (239), Emirates (223), Ryanair (192), Turkish Airlines yang memesan 168 pesawat, China Southern (168), Lufthansa (158), dan American Airlines (145). Jumlah pemesanan itu menambah panjang daftar gebrakan yang dilakukan manajemen Lion Air.

Sementara, di tahun 2011 lalu, Lion Air memecahkan rekor pemesanan dengan Boeing senilai USD 22 miliar. Nominal itu mengalahkan rekor yang sebelumnya dipegang Emirates. Padahal, di Juli 2007, terjadi suatu tragedy, yang membuat Lion Air sempat mengalami penurunan, sehingga Lion Air dilarang melintas di Eropa.

Dalam tujuh tahun terakhir, Lion Air memang menunjukkan pertumbuhan yang istimewa. Lion Air melipatgandakan jumlah kursi penerbangan dari 25,1 juta menjadi 48,7 juta. Selain itu, rata-rata waktu terbang hanya 1,5 jam.

Bagi Lion Air, pemesanan itu mencerminkan bahwa Indonesia adalah salah satu pasar yang bertumbuh paling cepat dalam perjalanan udara. Meski sudah berubah menjadi maskapai raksasa, Lion Air masih memiliki ambisi superbesar.

Lion Air sudah membuka rute penerbangan dari Manado ke beberapa kota di Tiongkok. Di antaranya, Macau, Shenzen, Chongqing, Wuhan, Shanghai, dan Changsa. Lion Group juga akan membuka rute dari Jakarta ke Cenai, India. Sama seperti Tiongkok, India juga merupakan ceruk pasar nan besar di industri pariwisata.

Berdasarkan data Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS) kunjungan wisman India ke Indonesia melalui 19 pintu utama pada April 2017 naik 21,17 persen dibandingkan periode yang sama 2016 silam. Hal ini menunjukkan ke depannya yakni terjadinya peningkatan permintaan ke berbagai daerah wisata di Indonesia sehingga dengan dibukanya rute penerbangan baru oleh Lion Air, maka akan membuka lapangan pekerjaan bagi masyarakat serta berdampak pada peningkatan perekonomian.
