Indonesian carrier Sky Aviation has extended its suspension till 30 April.

The country’s director for air transport Djoko Murjatmodjo confirmed the extension in a telephone interview with Flightglobal, and says Sky could lose its route permit if it did not resume services in the coming weeks.

He declined to elaborate on other actions that could be taken against the carrier if it fails to resume services by end April, but pointed out that its airline business licence will automatically expire if it was not renewed. It remains unknown as to when its business licence expires.

Sky Aviation suspended operations in mid-March, where it conducted an “audit for a new investor.” Flightglobal’s Ascend Online database shows the carrier now has a Cessna 208 Grand Caravan, a Fokker 100, three Sukhoi Superjet 100s, and five Fokker 50s in storage. It also has orders for nine more Superjet 100 aircraft.
