Through the production of the N219 aircraft, PT DI aims to increase its contribution in efforts to expand connectivity and accessibility, both between large and small cities, as well as between small cities. N219 is designed to be able to meet the needs of operations in regional characteristics which are areas with high elevations, short takeoff and landing on runways, short airport operating times, unpredictable weather, limited airport facilities, and areas with geographical conditions in the mountains which have been difficult to reach until now.

The N219 aircraft has also met the Domestic Component Level of 44.69 percent, according to Presidential Regulation Number 12 of 2021 concerning Amendments to Presidential Regulation Number 16 of 2018 concerning Government Procurement of Goods/Services. As a provision to face global market competition, the N219 aircraft has also pocketed certification from the Ministry of Industry.

Not only placing Indonesia as a market, but also how PTDI has significantly become a perpetrator in the aviation industry," explained Gita.
