Brief history In the 16th century the Portuguese sailed east to Asia and eventually captured Malacca in 1511. They came for the spices, but Catholic missionaries soon arrived in the region, most notably Francis Xavier who worked in Ambon (Ambon, Maluku), Ternate and Morotai (Halmahera) in 1546–1547. Dominican missionaries also made many converts in Solor. With the expulsion of Portugal from Ternate in 1574, many Catholics in the northern Moluccas were killed or converted to Islam. Ambon was conquered and occupied by the Dutch East India Company in 1605. Subsequently the Catholics were forced to convert to Protestantism. The same happened in Manado and the islands of Sangihe-Talaud. In 1613 Solor also fell to the Dutch, and Catholic mission activity was reduced in Flores and Timor, which were still under Portuguese administration.

The support from the CIA to the Permesta rebels came in the form of 15 B-26 bombers which formed the rebel airforce AUREV (Angkatan Udara Revolusioner) based on Manado airfield, large amounts of weapons and equipment, unlimited source of money, plus an international cast of CIA agents and mercenaries from Philippines , Taiwan, and Poland. Emboldened by the CIA aid, the rebels began a series of airstrikes against cities in Sulawesi and Maluku (Maluku Islands) held by central government. The cities bombed by the rebel planes, piloted by CIA agents, included Balikpapan, Makassar, and Ambon (Ambon, Maluku). On 15 May 1958, rebel planes bombed the marketplace of Ambon, killing large numbers of civilians attending Ascension (Ascension of Jesus Christ) Sunday services. *'''Indonesia''' **Ambon (Ambon, Maluku) - Pattimura Airport **Balikpapan - Sepinggan International Airport **'''Papua (Western New Guinea) and Maluku (Maluku Islands)''' ***Ambon (Ambon, Maluku) - Pattimura Airport ***Babo (Babo, West Papua) - Babo Airport In its early years Mandala Airlines operated flights between Jakarta and destinations in eastern Indonesia, such as Ambon (Ambon, Maluku), Gorontalo (Gorontalo (city)), Kendari, Makassar and Manado.
