Indonesia-based FlyKomala provides chartered aviation services across the country, and counts a wide array of industry partners and services from mining and agriculture companies through to supporting disaster relief efforts and VIP movement.

Leonardo confirmed that the AW109 Trekker model was selected due to efficient operating costs as well as a sizable cabin and adaptable cockpit.
