Indonesia's directorate general for civil aviation (DGCA) has reallocated 22 routes formerly served by Batavia Air to low-cost carriers Citilink and Mandala Airlines, and Makassar-based regional airline Express Air.
Citilink will serve 14 routes from Jakarta and Surabaya, while Mandala and Express Air will serve four routes each. The remaining 20 routes will be assigned to other carriers at a meeting that will be held on 4 February, says the country's ministry of transport.
The move by DGCA comes after the three carriers expressed their willingness to transport the affected Batavia passengers for free.
"We have provided [these] incentives, by assigning routes formerly operated by Batavia to these three carriers," says the country's air transport director Djoko Murjatmodjo.
Ministry spokesman Bambang Ervan emphasised that the route allocations will be decided on a first-come-first-serve basis, with priority given to the earliest applicant.
Batavia ceased operations on 31 January after a local business court ordered it into bankruptcy.
The action against Batavia was brought about by International Leasing Finance Corp (ILFC), which filed a bankruptcy petition on 20 December 2012, after the carrier failed to make payments to the leasing firm by an agreed deadline for two Airbus A330-200 aircraft.
It has also submitted a letter to the country's director general for civil aviation, Herry Bakti, informing him of its decision to cease operations.
Flightglobal's Ascend Online database shows that Batavia operated 24 Boeing 737-300s, -400s and -500s, two A330-200s and six A320-family aircraft. The airline was established in 2002, and operated flights to about 42 domestic and international destinations.
