Susi Air was set up in 2004. The airline didn't start flying scheduled flights until 2005 when it began flying out of Medan For most of 2004, the airline's planes were used to support transporting equipment and medicine for aid after the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. Although the airline has a lot more charter routes within its route network than it does scheduled routes, Susi Air is predominantly a scheduled airline and a great choice for anyone that is looking to island-hop in Indonesia.
