Indonesia's Garuda to tap KLM for EU standard help

JAKARTA, Nov 30 (Reuters) - Flag carrier Garuda Indonesia may seek help from KLM Royal Dutch Airlines to comply with European Union (EU) air safety standards, Indonesia's Vice President said on Friday, which could open the door to European routes.

The European Commission updated on Wednesday its list of airlines banned from flying to Europe.

It lifted a ban on Pakistan International Airlines, but kept 51 Indonesian airlines, including Garuda, on the blacklist.

"Garuda has talked to KLM for consultancy to help comply with the European (airline) standard," Kalla told reporters.

"We should not misunderstand this. Don't get angry with them. This is a good opportunity to push ourselves to resolve this problem. It's true that the key for airline business is safety."

Indonesia has suffered from a string of airline accidents in recent years, raising questions about safety standards and leading to the commission's ban in June.

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

An EU team visited Indonesia earlier this month as part of a review for deciding whether to lift the ban.

Transport Minister Jusman Syafi'i Djamal said France, Germany and the Netherlands had expressed interest in helping with expertise, but he did not elaborate.

The minister said an EU team would visit Indonesia again in three months' time to conduct another review.

"They want proof that the improvement already achieved by Indonesian airlines and the Indonesian regulator is sustained, not temporary," he told Reuters in an interview.

But Djamal criticised the European Union's blanket ban on Indonesian airlines, describing it as a policy of isolation and punishment.

"To improve the safety level we need time, we need experts and we need cooperation between nations. We don't believe that isolation and punishment is a good policy," Djamal said.

Although no Indonesian airline now flies to EU member states, the ban means tourist agencies are obliged to warn customers Indonesian airlines are unsafe, if they sell package tours that use such domestic carriers.

Garuda is also keen to resume flights to the Netherlands so that it can benefit from a rise in tourism. The Dutch were Indonesia's colonial rulers for more than 300 years and for many years chaired the country's foreign aid donors group.

KLM is the Dutch arm of Air France KLM.

As part of its safety improvements, Indonesia has 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 improve the skills and pay for airline industry workers, as well as to set up an independent and capable accident investigating agency.

Air travel in Indonesia has blossomed since the sector was deregulated in 1999, as several new airlines sprung up.

Lion Air Still Facing Obstacles In Taking Over Regional Airlines

JAKARTA, Dec 5 (Bernama) -- Indonesia's private airline company Lion Air still has some difficulties in its acquisition of some domestic airlines in Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Malaysia as of 2008, ANTARA reported.

President of Lion Air Rusdi Kirana told the press in Langkawi that the obstacles include the regulation on capital ownership limitations by foreign investors in each of these countries, and manpower problems.

With regard to foreign ownership limitation, the regulations in Australia, Thailand and Bangladesh demand the same requirement, namely not more than 49 percent, while Lion Air wished for a controlling position of more than 50 percent.

With regard to manpower, the regional domestic airline companies generally already have personnel which is considered inefficient for Lion Air's strategy which will continue operating in the market of low-cost carriers.

Rusdi said the personnel had already been working for quite a long time in the domestic airline companies so that it would not be so easy to resort to a rationalisation.

"For the time being I cannot disclose the names of the regional airline companies which we will try to take over, but I predicted that the first quarter of 2008 the acquisition will cover two regional airline companies of two countries," he said.

He said that the acquisition strategy on taking over regional airline companies is preparatory to entering the Asean free market in 2010.

Under this plan, Lion Air purchased 22 Boeing 737-900 ERs at the Langkawi Air Show in Malaysia (LIMA 2007), on Tuesday (4/12) to bolster its position in the national and regional airline business competition.

The signing of the contract on the purchase of the aircraft by Lion Air President Rusdi Kirana and Senior Vice President Boeing Dinesh A Keskar in Langkawi Tuesday was witnessed by Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister concurrently Defense Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Under the new contract, Lion Air will have and operate 122 B 737-900 ERs because earlier, namely by the end of 2006, the airline company has signed purchase contract for 100 aircraft of the same type.

Indonesia Lion Air Plane Grounded After Part Falls Off
6 December 2007

JAKARTA (AFP)--A plane operated by Indonesia's Lion Air has been grounded after the local carrier admitted that a three-metre-long part found on a runway belonged to it, an official said Thursday.

" Lion Air has admitted that the part belongs to one of its aircraft. The MD-90 is now grounded and an investigation is currently ongoing," the head administrator of Jakarta's Sukarno-Hatta airport, Heri Bakti, told AFP.

An air safety inspector found the part, which is 40 centimeters wide, lying on a runway at the airport on Tuesday. It was claimed late Wednesday, Bakti said.

Lion Air's operational director, Ertata Lanang Galih, told the Detikcom online news service the part was from the exhaust system and not vital for flight.

He reportedly said it fell off the plane because of "a mistake of the workshop, the factory".

It was the latest incident in a series highlighting air safety concerns in Indonesia, an archipelago nation where flying is a crucial means of travel.

The European Union last week extended a ban on all Indonesian planes flying in its airspace following a series of fatal accidents here.

Indonesian president delays Europe visit over air ban: spokesman

JAKARTA, Dec 10, 2007 (AFP) - Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is delaying a visit to Europe early next year until the European Union lifts a ban on Indonesian carriers flying into its airspace, his spokesman said Monday.

All 51 Indonesian airlines were officially banned in July from flying to the bloc after European safety experts declared they were unsafe following a series of crashes in the Southeast Asian archipelago.

Yudhoyono normally flies on a plane from national carrier Garuda's fleet.

"The president wants to make sure that... before he makes the trip to Europe that the airline ban is lifted. That's politically appropriate and psychologically appropriate too," Yudhoyono's spokesman Dino Patti Djalal said.

Djalal told AFP that a visit to several European nations, which he declined to specify, was supposed to happen some time in early 2008.

"A date was supposed to be set but his instructions were: 'Let's not set a date before the airline ban is lifted,'" he said.

"He will go there when the airline ban is lifted -- it is a matter of principle for him."

The next technical meeting that could see the Indonesian ban lifted was expected in January or February, he added.

The European Commission announced last month that it had kept Indonesian airlines on its list of banned carriers after a review in early November.

That announcement came less than a week after Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission, the European Union's executive arm, insisted on a visit here that the ban was merely a "technical issue".

Recent crashes in Indonesia have 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.

In March, a Garuda jet burst into flames on landing in Central Java, killing 21 people.

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 five times since then.

I didn't know that Indonesia had 51 airlines. That's impressive. They should only allow Jatayu to fly to Europe.

I wonder why Indonesian airlines are buying Airbus products too..

But it seems to turn out well, airlines operating Airbus products ironically seem to have lesser accidents than airlines operating brand new B737-900ERs.

Quite odd, Mandala, Batavia's Airbus aircraft haven't experienced a single accident while Lion's new B739ERs have tail strikes and so many other accidents.

There isn't much choice in the commercial aviation market for large jets. It's either Airbus or Boeing .. unless they want to buy some Tupolevs.

I'm surprised Indonesia's carriers haven't bought any regional jets.

Indonesia '07 Domestic Air Passenger Number Likely +10%-Report
12 December 2007

JAKARTA (Dow Jones)--The Indonesia National Air Carriers Association, or INACA, predicts that the number of domestic passengers will likely grow only 10% on year to 38 million this year, below its original forecast of 15%, Bisnis Indonesia reported.

The newspaper quoted INACA's chairman Tengku Burhanuddin as saying that rising fuel prices globally and weaker purchasing power are the key reasons for the slower-than-expected growth.

Surging fuel prices hurt local carriers' plans to open new routes, Burhanuddin was quoted as saying.

The daily also quoted Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal as saying that he predicted domestic passengers to grow 18% next year from this year.

I read somewhere that the Chinese are mass producing passenger jet powered aircraft too but I don't remember what their company is called.

Yes, that's the ARJ21, but it'll be many years until there is enough confidence in the international community to really make a difference in the industry.

He said a number of international airlines and finance companies had indicated an interest in acquiring the stake.

EU DELEGATION TO VISIT RI FOR TALKS ON AIRLINE FLIGHT SAFETY
[December 17, 2007]

(Antara - The Indonesian National News Agency Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge) from ANTARA, The Indonesian National News Agency Medan, N Sumatra, Dec 17 (ANTARA) - A European Union (EU) delegation will visit Indonesia in January next year for talks on airline flight safety with local aviation authorities, Tranportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal said

"A delegation from the European Union will visit Indonesia next January to discuss their concept of airline flight safety," the minister said here on Sunday

He said the talks would be of significance as the EU was continuing to ban Indonesian airlines from flying in its air space

"Although they have issued this ban, we will still have a dialog and cooperate with them. That's why they will come here and have dialog with us. We may do it in Bandung (West Java) in the form of a training or workshop," he said

The EU ban has upset Indonesia as it suggested the EU did not respect the opinion of Indonesian aviation authorities on the safety standards of national airlines

Jusman added it was not proper for the European Union to issue such a ban as Indonesian airlines were not operating in Europe
