Garuda to resume flights to Europe next year

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Garuda Indonesia`s planes will resume flying to Europe from Indonesia at the end of next year after the state-owned company suspended its flights to European destinations in 2004 because of losses.

"(Garuda will resume flying) on condition that flight ban to Europe has been lifted, and Garuda has proper planes to resume the flights," Garuda managing director, Emirsyah Satar told the press here Friday after the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by the national flag-carrier and World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

Emirsyah said, the right choice now for the flights to Europe would be the wide-bodied long-distance airliners for the Jakarta-Amsterdam and Bali-Amsterdam flights.

"We should determine the best choice, Airbus 330 or Boeing 777," Emisryah said, adding that Amsterdam has become the most potential destination.

Meanwhile, head of the Garuda communications affairs Pujobroto commented that a comprehensive study should be conducted on the planned resumption of Garuda flights to Europe.

"The study should cover competitiveness and market segment, for instance Garuda will use Boeing 747 focusing on business people," Pudjobroto said.

Great news, hopefully they will resume flights to Honolulu and Los Angeles again too. Garuda should pick the 777s, more versatile.

Minister: EU team satisfied with RI airline condition

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal said the European Union (EU) team that conducted an audit and verification in Indonesia from November 5 to 9, 2007, was in general satisfied with the current condition of the country`s airline companies.

"They were satisfied after auditing the airlines as they saw improvements in the skills of the pilots and crew members, maintenance and others, both hardware and software," the minister told newsmen here Friday.

The EU team led by Frederico Grandini including five experts from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), was in Indonesia from November 5 to 9, 2007, to audit and verify the condition of the Indonesian airlines including the regulators and operators.

The team consisted of Jean-Luis Ammeloot of EASA (Germany), Declan Fitzpatrick (EASA, Ireland), Dick Nederlof (EASA, the Netherlands), Annette Ruge (EASA, Germany) and Auke Tjeerd Sebastian van der Weide (EASA, Germany).

Regarding the regulators (based on their explanations to the transportation minister), the minister said they considered there were a number of things, in this case regulations, which should be improved but they were not the fundamental ones.

"They did not specifically mention (the regulations which need improvement)," Jusman said.

According to the minister, they are now drawing up reports and recommendations which will be handed to Indonesia next Monday (Nov 12) and then to the safety 27-member team of the EU.

"The Air Transportation Director General is invited to their meeting on November 19, 2007, to explain and convince the EU members that improvements had been made," the minister said.

On the EU team`s findings about things that should be improved by the regulators and operators, Jusman said they had yet to make final decisions as they were only a technical team, and no decision makers.

The minister said the most important thing was that he had expressed the Indonesian government`s wish for the lifting of the flight ban against 51 Indonesian airline companies imposed since July 6, 2007.

"Otherwise, the airline companies in Indonesia will find it difficult to grow," the minister said.

He further said they would not directly lift the ban but probably after a phase of evaluation.

On a different occasion, Air Transportation Director General of the Transportation Ministry Budhi M Suyitno said the airlines which were verified and audited by the EU team were Garuda Indonesia, Mandala, Premi Air and Air Fast.

"The four airlines have direct flights to Europe," he said.

The EU team made a surveillance, oversight and verification on the findings in the field and then made recommendations, he said, adding, "Based on the recommendations, we must take measures of correction".

On the possibility that the ban would not be lifted or even extended, Budhi said, "we improve the safety condition not for the EU, but for our own public, then for theirs".

"With or without a ban by outsiders, we must work hard to improve the our flight safety condition," Budhi said.(*)

Indonesia's Lion Air plans up to $600 mln expansion

JAKARTA, Nov 14 (Reuters) - Indonesia's largest private airline, Lion Air, plans to raise up to $600 million to acquire stakes or set up new airlines in a number of Asian countries, a company official said on Wednesday.

Lion Air was looking at possible expansion in six countries -- Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Bangladesh and the Philippines, Hasyim Alhabsi, the head of public relations, told reporters.

The airline recently ordered an additional 22 Boeing Co (BA.N: Quote, Profile, Research) 737-900 series planes as part of its expansion plans, lifting its total orders at the U.S. firm to 122 jets, with a total list price of $7 billion.

"God willing, within 1 to 5 years we will be (operating) in those countries. In the near term, there may be some deals completed in Thailand, Vietnam and Bangladesh," Alhabsi said.

"We have been collecting funds from both internal and external sources. We will prepare around $50 million to $100 million for each country."

He did not elaborate on how the money would be raised.

The carrier currently has a fleet of 40 jets on 32 routes.

Lion Air has been aggressively expanding in Indonesia's fast growing airline industry in a country of 220 million people spread across more than 17,000 islands.

The carrier is also expected sign a 10-year $1 billion contract next year with Delta Air Lines (DAL.N: Quote, Profile, Research), under which the U.S airliner will provide maintenance and services for its fleet.

Indonesia's airline industry has grown rapidly since the government liberalised the sector after the financial crisis in the late 1990s. But a series of recent accidents has raised questions over whether safety has been compromised and whether the infrastructure and personnel can cope with the huge increase.

There have been calls from some Indonesian officials to modernise ageing fleets to help improve safety. (Editing by Ed Davies/Richard Hubbard)

Indonesia air industry pledges to improve safety

JAKARTA, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Indonesia's air industry signed a declaration with the government on Thursday to improve aviation safety as the country tries to get Europe to lift a ban on its carriers.

Indonesia has embarked on efforts to overhaul its airline industry after a string of deadly accidents in recent years raised questions about its aviation safety.

"This is a commitment at the highest level of airport management and national airlines to take all action necessary to improve the safety of air travel," Transport Minister Djusman Syaf'i Djamal said.

The declaration was signed by the Indonesia National Carriers Associaton, the Indonesian Airport Operators Association, the Indonesian Pilots Federation and the Indonesian Aircraft Maintenance Shop Association.

A European Union team visited Indonesia last week as part of a review of the E.U. ban on 51 Indonesian airlines, imposed in June after two major air accidents this year.

The team has prepared a report on Indonesian air safety that will be submitted to the European Commission and used as a basis for deciding whether to lift the ban.

A plane operated by national carrier Garuda crashed while landing at Yogyakarta airport in March, killing 21 people. In January, 102 people aboard an Adam Air jet were killed when it plunged into the sea off Sulawesi.

No Indonesian airlines fly to EU member states, but the ban obliges tourist agencies to warn customers that Indonesian airlines are unsafe if they sell package tours that use such carriers.

As part of its safety improvements, Indonesia signed an agreement with the International Civil Aviation Organisation, established an independent regulator and streamlined air traffic control.

The country has also been working to boost skills and pay for airline industry workers, as well as set up an independent and capable accident investigating agency.

Air travel in Indonesia has blossomed since the sector was deregulated in 1999, but the rapid growth has raised questions over whether safety has been compromised.

Indonesia vows to improve airline safety, security
16 November 2007
The Jakarta Post

Representatives from the Transportation Ministry and a number of Indonesian airlines have pledged to improve aviation security and services to meet the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), in a move that may aid the country's efforts to end the EU ban on Indonesian air carriers.

Indonesian airlines were banned by the EU on July 6 this year due to alleged poor service and failure to ensure flight safety and operational security.

Representatives from the Transportation Ministry's Directorate General of Air Transportation, airport management and 25 of 43 domestic airlines offering scheduled, chartered and cargo air services, signed a declaration on improving aviation safety at flag carrier Garuda Indonesia's headquarters in Central Jakarta on Thursday.

The declaration was facilitated by the National Team for Transportation Safety and Security Evaluation, which was tasked with evaluating the performance of the domestic aviation industry after a series of airplane accidents this year.

The evaluation team comprised six members and was chaired by former Air Force chief of staff, Marshal (ret.) Chappy Hakim.

"We need to work hard to prove we can meet international standards, and that starts with this declaration," Chappy told attendees.

The declaration was made following an agreement signed in Bali in July by Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal and ICAO Chairman Roberto Kobeh Gonzales. The agreement requires the Indonesian government to increase standards of aviation safety, service and security.

The ministry is also committed to strengthening the safety evaluation capability of the Directorate General of Air Transportation, as aviation regulator, and implementing a proactive system of safety management that complies with ICAO standards.

ICAO is expected to review Indonesia's progress at the end of 2008.

Jusman said he was convinced the declaration would benefit the government in describing its progress at an EU meeting Monday in Brussels.

One of the items of the agenda at the meeting is the discussion of lifting the EU's ban on Indonesian airlines.

The Indonesian government is expected to deliver a presentation describing its efforts to tackle problems in the aviation industry.

Jusman said he was optimistic the EU meeting would result in a rescinding of the ban because a preliminary team deployed by the EU recently praised the access granted by the government. The team was sent to verify the country's progress in improving safety standards.

A team from the European Aviation Security Agency earlier examined different facets of the country's aviation industry. It inspected airport services and infrastructure and interviewed the managers of three airlines -- Garuda Indonesia, Mandala Airlines and Air Fast -- to verify the industry's progress.

Garuda Indonesia Plans To Issue Conv Bonds To Repay $750M Debt
16 November 2007

JAKARTA (Dow Jones)--National flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia (GARUDA.YY) plans to issue convertible bonds to help repay its debts totaling $750 million, a senior government minister said Friday.

"I expect Garuda will launch a bid invitation to market its convertible bonds soon," Minister of State Enterprises' Affairs Sofyan Djalil told reporters.

Garuda is wholly owned by the Indonesian government.

Djalil didn't reveal the size of the planned bonds, but said that they would eventually be converted into Garuda shares when the airline goes for a public listing in 2009.

He said that the government has so far received a letter of interest from three investors for the bonds, but he didn't elaborate.

EC president to help lift ban on RI airline flights to Europe

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Visiting European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said he would help speed up the lifting of a ban on Indonesian airline flights to the European Union (EU).

Speaking at a joint press conference with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono after a bilateral meeting at the State Palace here on Friday, Barroso said he and the European Commission would do whatever they could to speed up the lifting of the ban.

He said all things would be done to meet Indonesia`s request to lift the ban on Indonesian airline flights to Europe.

On the occasion, Barroso said he respected Indonesia`s efforts issue to improve the technical standards of the safety of its flights at home and to Europe.

Meanwhile, President Yudhoyono said at his meeting with the European Commission leader, the Indonesian government had asked the European Union to lift the ban on Indonesian airline flights to Europe.

Yudhoyono also expressed hope that aviation cooperation between Indonesia and Europe would soon be normalized.

The head of state said the first step to solve the aviation issue between Indonesia and Europe was by improving air safety and security.

He said since the development of air transportation statistic was high, relations with European Union would be normalized by improving air safety and security standard in order to ensure the certainty of all passengers.

The second step, according to Yudhoyono was that the government would continue to consult and cooperate with the European Union closely, especially at the technical level so that what Indonesia had done could be understood by the EU.

After the joint press conference, Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal said the European Commission president wanted civil aviation technical cooperation between Indonesia and EU to develop maximally.

"Barroso expressed optimism that the lifting of the ban on Indonesian airline flights to Europe would be accelerated," said the transportation minister.(*)

Europe sending new air safety mission to Indonesia: EC president

JAKARTA, Nov 23, 2007 (AFP) - Europe will send another mission to Indonesia to help speed up a review of airline safety, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said Friday.

The European Union in July slapped a ban on all 51 Indonesian airlines flying in its airspace, including national carrier Garuda, following a series of fatal aviation accidents in the archipelago nation. Indonesia labelled the move as unfair.

Speaking after talks with his Indonesian counterpart Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Barroso insisted that the ban was "only a technical issue".

"Let me tell you the European Union were also forced to take some measures against European Union airlines, so this is a decision, but it is only on technical grounds," he told a press briefing.

"And I said to President Yudhoyono that myself and the European Commission will do everything to speed up all the procedures, to work in close contact with Indonesian authorities so that the issue can solved in full respect... for the technical requirements of safety," he said.

"In fact I'm pleased to say that very soon there will be another mission here working with (our) Indonesian colleagues to do everything to speed up this process of reviewing all the safety conditions," he added.

A mission of European monitors reassessing the ban on Garuda wrapped up here on November 9 but no outcome has been publicised.

Yudhoyono said that he had urged Barroso in their talks to speed up the lifting of the ban.

"I stressed that we were in the midst of serious efforts to improve our regulations and safety of our aviation industry and I'm glad that in recent times there has been efforts to rectify the situation," Yudhoyono said.

Recent crashes included an Adam Air plane that plunged into the sea off Indonesia's Sulawesi island on New Year's Day, killing all 102 people on board, and in March, a Garuda jet that burst into flames on landing in Central Java, killing 21 people.

No Indonesian airlines fly regularly to and from the EU, but under European rules, passengers must be informed if an airline is on the list of banned carriers and can demand reimbursement or an alternative carrier for tickets bought in Europe for flights that do not enter EU skies.

The EU started its safety ban list in March 2006 after a string of deadly accidents that highlighted the fragmented approach to air safety in the then 25-nation bloc. It has been updated four times since then.

Indonesia's Adam Air looks to expand fleet to 50-60 jets

JAKARTA, Nov 23, 2007 (AFP) - Indonesian low cost carrier Adam Air is embarking on a fleet expansion plan that could see it flying 50 to 60 jets within five years, a spokesman said Friday.

Privately-owned Adam Air began operations in 2003 and is the largest discount airline in Indonesia's fragmented market by passenger number.

"We plan to add more planes to our fleet, four or five additional aircraft, each year. So in five years we will have about 50 to 60 aircraft. Right now we have 23," spokesman Danke Dradjat told AFP.

He said that it was undecided yet whether Adam Air would continue to fly only Boeing 737 series jets or switch to Airbus, but it would depend on "terms and conditions" offered by the two main manufacturers.

He could not give an estimate of how much the carrier would spend but said the rapid expansion of low cost carriers in India and China meant planes were getting more difficult to lease so costs were soaring.

Adam Air opened a new domestic route this week to Banjarmasin, the capital of South Kalimantan province on Borneo island and was studying opening flights to Ambon and Kupang in the east, Dradjat said.

The spokesman said that passenger numbers had bounced back in the wake of one of its jetliners crashing into the sea on New Year's Day, with average passenger loads at 92 percent. The January disaster killed 102 people.

"We had quite a bad time, the first and second month after the accident, but then conditions rebounded very quickly, especially after the Garuda accident, when people saw it could happen to any airline," Dradjat said.

A Garuda jet crashed on landing in the Central Java city of Yogyakarta in March, killing 21 people. The European Union shortly afterwards banned Indonesian carriers from its airspace, citing safety concerns.

Adam Air has been plagued by a series of other incidents, including a hard landing that cracked the fuselage of one of its 737-300 jets in February.

The same month, 13 employees were arrested by Jakarta airport police for allegedly fiddling passenger data to cream off departure tax money.

I don't really like the plans for CGK's T3...

Don't understand why can't they just replicate the design of Paul Andreu's T1 and T2 for the T3 and T4. The T3 complex seems kinda odd looking...

On the other hand, I hope Kuala Namu International Airport can become a major hub in SEAsia...

Development of Jakarta airport railway to start in March 2008

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal said the development of a 27-km-long airport railway in Jakarta will start in March 2008.

"The project`s ground breaking will be carried out in March 2008 and it is expected to be completed in June 2009," the minister told the press after the launching of Ciliwung Blue Line at Gambir railway station here on Friday.

The airport railway was an urgent need and could become the best alternative to go to and come from the airport for Jakarta residents, apart from toll roads, he said.

"The threat of flooding induced by high tide as happened last week and caused traffic congestion on the road to the airport, will no longer recur if we have an airport railway. Besides, its carrying capacity will be much bigger than buses," the minister said.

The bidding process for the railway construction would be completed before March 2008, he said.

"Work to make the DED (Detailed Engineering Design) is expected to be finished in December, and it will be followed by the bidding and other processes," he said.

Meanwhile, the elevated railway project will be operated by PT Railink, a subsidiary of state railway company PT KA, with a share ownership of 60 percent by PT KA and the rest by PT Angkasa Pura II airport management company, President Director of PT KA Ronny Wahyudi said.

The funds of the airport railway project, which was estimated to cost around Rp2.2 trillion, would be provided by three national bank syndicates, he said.

The route of the airport train line would be : Manggarai (Duri)-Angke-Soekarno Hatta airport, he said. (*)
