Lion Air flights & tickets

Lion Air is the most popular budget airline in Indonesia and the second-largest budget carrier in Asia. Lion Air serves more than one hundred destinations spanning Asia and Australasia, including more than twenty-five airports across the islands of Indonesia. Lion Air is well-known for offering inexpensive flights between Jakarta and major cities such as Jeddah, Shanghai, Singapore and Brisbane.

Lion Air focuses on cheap tickets to destinations in Asia and does not provide service to any North American destinations. Canadian travelers who want to book a cheap flight with Lion Air must first fly to Asia with their preferred airline and then book a separate ticket on Lion Air.

Why Fly Lion Air

How to Check In on Lion Air

Lion Air offers both online and airport check-in for travelers. Online check-in opens twenty-four hours in advance and closes four hours before the flight's scheduled departure. Travelers who miss the online check-in window can check in at their departure airport. Within Indonesia, airports' domestic check-in services close thirty minutes before departure, and international check-in closes forty-five minutes before departure.

Baggage Allowance and Fees on Lion Air

As a budget carrier, Lion Air has a restrictive luggage policy. Domestic economy travelers can pack one piece of checked baggage weighing no more than 15 kilograms, while business class passengers are permitted one checked bag weighing up to 30 kilograms. On international flights the business class limit is further lowered to 20 kilograms.

Lion Air's excess baggage fees are charged by weight. Travelers with excess baggage can save money by paying for their excess baggage during online check-in rather than waiting until they arrive at the airport.

Choosing the Best Seats on Lion Air

Most Lion Air flights offer standard economy seats with up to 31" of seat pitch and a consistent 17" of seat width. Business class seats offer 38" of seat pitch and 21" of seat width, when available. Seats on Lion Air are not equipped with in-flight entertainment or power outlets, so bring your own fully-charged electronics on board if you want to be entertained. Seats can be selected during the booking process at no extra charge.

Booking Fees on Lion Air

Lion Air does not charge a fee for travelers to book their flights online or through an airport sales counter. However, flights booked through their call centers are subject to a small fee in the local currency, which is equivalent to less than $5 CAD.
