The airline was established in October 1999 and started operations on June 30, 2000. Lion Air failed, in early 2011, the initial IATA assessments for membership due to safety concerns. Along with many other Indonesian carriers, Lion Air (including its Wings Air subsidiary) is on the list of air carriers banned in the European Union due to safety concerns as of February 2012. The airline has applied multiple times for membership in The International Air Transport Association (IATA), but it has been denied due to several safety concerns.
