Flag carrier Garuda Indonesia has finally received safety clearance following a stringent audit conducted by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), president director Emir Syah Satar said Thursday.

"The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) for Garuda was approved on May 14 and will be presented during the IATA annual general meeting in Istanbul on June 1-3," said Emir.

"We expect the European Union to refer to the audit result during their session on flight ban in July."

The EU has banned all Indonesian airlines from entering the bloc's airspace even though none of the airlines actually serve European routes.

The government has proposed four airlines to be exempted from the flight ban. In addition to Garuda, the airlines are Mandala Airlines, which has committed to buying a large number of European Airbus jetliners, and chartered airlines Airfast and Premiair.

Garuda vice president for aviation security and environment Capt. Novianto said being awarded the IOSA certificate meant that the state-owned airline's safety and security standards were on par with international large carriers that are members of IATA.

"For the award, eight aspects are analyzed from organization and management and airplane maintenance to flight operational safety," he said.

"The certificate is renewable every two years and consists of more than 900 check list items. It is even more complicated to get an ISO certificate." (Maryani Dewi/****)
I wonder if the decision is made before or after the Perth incident.

Jet nearly hits workers at Perth airport


Posted Sat May 17, 2008 8:38am AEST
Updated Sat May 17, 2008 10:18am AEST ( news )


Safety officials are investigating a close call between an Indonesian passenger jet and a group of construction workers at Perth Airport last week.

It is believed a Garuda jet inbound from Bali aborted one attempted landing after the pilot queried traffic controllers about vehicles on the runway.

The Garuda jet then narrowly missed hitting the workers when it appeared to misjudge a second approach.

No one was hurt in the incident and the Australian Transport Safety Bureau says it is speaking to the plane's crew and air traffic controllers to find out what happened.

Indonesian carrier Garuda passes key safety audit, says president

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesian flag carrier Garuda has passed an international safety audit which should help it shake off a ban from European Union airspace, the company president said Thursday.

Emirsyah Satar said the airline has been declared fit to fly in an Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

"Garuda Indonesia has now formally become an IOSA operator," he was quoted by Thomson Financial as saying.

Garuda is the only one of Indonesia's 51 commercial and charter airlines which is a member of the IATA.

The European Union banned all Indonesian-registered aircraft from flying over its airspace last year, acting on a report from the International Civil Aviation Organization which criticised the country's safety standards.

The bloc is expected to review the ban in July, and Satar said the audit outcome should be a sign to Brussels that "we can be taken off the EU ban list."

Indonesian officials were upbeat that certain unnamed airlines would be taken from the ban list, following talks with EU officials on the matter earlier this month.

The June 2007 EU ban followed on the heels of several deadly air crashes, including an Adam Air jet that plunged into the sea off Sulawesi island on January 1, 2007, killing all 102 on board, and a Garuda jet which crashed in Central Java in March of the same year with 21 dead. (*)

Lion Air Daily Between Bali and Singapore
Round Trip Fares Start from US$117.

(5/31/2008) Lion Air will commence direct air service between Bali and Singapore starting from June 6, 2008.

Operating the new service with Boeing 737-900ER aircraft, the CEO of the Airline, Rusdi Kirana, said he is confident that the new route will be popular with Lion Air customers, a feeling supported by the fact that tickets on the inaugural flights between the two destinations have been quickly snapped up by an eager public.

The new service will use the brand new and technically advanced B-737-900ER aircraft purchased by Lion Air.

According to Bisnis Indonesia, while Kirana would not comment on the tariff for the Bali-Singapore route, agents have confirmed that tickets are being sold at a cost of less than 80% of the fare offered by competing carriers. Meanwhile, the less tight-lipped Public Relations Manager of Lion Air, Hasyim Arsal Alhabsi, told the newspaper that round trip tickets are being sold on the Bali-Singapore route starting from only US$117,

The daily service will initially operate on a schedule that leaves Singapore at 6:25 a.m. and leaves Bali on its return leg departing at 11:00 p.m..

Makassar, South Sulawesi.

Hasanuddin's new terminal to be officiated in August
Antara , Makassar, South Sulawesi | Thu, 06/19/2008 5:22 PM | National

Hasanuddin Airport's expansion project will be ready to be opened in August as planned by state-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I, Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal said Thursday.

"The project includes a new passenger terminal and apron as well as a taxi-way," Jusman said.

The project costs some Rp 1 trillion (US$107.52 million) financed through the state budget as well as PT Angkasa Pura I's own funding.

Meanwhile, the runway for the terminal is still being constructed in the project's second phase and will not be officiated in the near future.

Jusman also said that his ministry had yet to audit the airport's safety and security standards, although he was sure that all requirements had been met.

Currently the Hasanuddin Airport shares the old runway and apron with the Hasanuddin Air Force Base. (****)

Citilink postpones flight resumption in June-July 2008


Jakarta (ANTARA News) - PT Garuda Indonesia (Garuda) has further postponed CitiLink`s flight resumption from June or July to early in September 2008.

"Following a consolidation, we planned to have CitiLink to resume its flights early in September this year," Garuda`s communications chief Pujobroto told the press on the sidelines of the signing of an MoU between Garuda and Singapore Airlines in Jakarta on Friday.

He said after resuming its flight operations, CitiLink will be based in Surabaya.

In the first flight, Pujobroto said, the low-cost state airline company will be flying Boeing 737-300s to destinations including Makassar and Manado, and to a number of cities in the country`s eastern provinces.

CitiLink discontinued operations since January 15, 2008, for operating at a loss.

In the meantime PT Garuda Indonesia`s Strategy and Technology Director Elisa Lumbantoruan had said earlier that Citilink was actually scheduled to resume its flights in June or July this year.

Elisa Lumbantoruan also said that during the temporary halt to flying, the airline company had formulated a business strategy most suitable to CitiLink.

CitiLink, was established by Garuda in 2001, and once contributed some of its profit to Garuda, but in the last three years continued operating at a loss.

In this context, she added, the state-owned airline company decided to develop CitiLink into a low-cost business enterprise and domestic aviation market leader.

She also said that CitiLink will be seriously applying the principles of a low cost carrier (LCC).

CitiLink is also planning to operate at least five B737-300s this year, which will be raised gradually to 25 units in up to five years, depending on the condition of the market, she added.

The Garuda management has yet to realize a spin-off of CitiLink as subsidiary.

Garuda`s management headed by Emirsyah Satar, had issued a statement several times to spin-off CitiLink Garuda early in 2007, but until the change of the year, nothing yet had happened. (*)

btw, if you check airasia website, you will see that Indonesian routes already outnumbered its Thai airasia. This mean now, AirAsia serves 14 Indonesian cities...and will be growing even more when cities like semarang, manado, etc are to be included...


cheers

Indonesia grounds small airlines to meet safety standards

JAKARTA, July 2 (Reuters) - Indonesia's transport ministry grounded five small airlines this week because they did not meet safety standards, a ministry official said on Wednesday.

The transport ministry gave Helizona, SMAC, Asco Nusa Air, Tri-MG Intra Asia Airlines and Dirgantara Air Service three months to meet minimum safety standards, Budi Mulyawan Suyitno, director general of air transportation, said. "Those airlines, with small planes for rent, didn't meet safety standards," Suyitno said. "If within three months they don't show any improvement we will revoke their air operator's certificate."

Suyitno said this move was part of an on-going process to improve the the safety standards of Indonesian airlines.

In March, Indonesian budget carrier Adam Air, which has suffered a series of accidents and defaulted on debt payments, had its flights grounded over safety concerns.

Indonesia's airline industry has grown rapidly in the past decade following liberalisation, with the launch of new players and a wider choice of routes across the sprawling archipelago.

However, the world's fourth-most populous country has suffered a string of airline disasters in recent years, raising concerns about safety standards and prompting the European Union to ban all Indonesian airlines from its airspace.

In January 2007, an Adam Air plane crashed into the sea off Sulawesi island, with all 102 people on board presumed dead. In March 2007 a Garuda plane carrying 140 people on board skidded off the Yogyakarta runway, killing 21 people.

Executive Column: High oil price a test of survival for airlines: Lion Air
The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Mon, 06/30/2008 10:50 AM | Business

Celebrating its eighth anniversary on June 30, Lion Air is to expand its business by serving more international routes, in the Asia-Pacific region in particular, and is eying international airlines to acquire.

Lion Air, known as the low-cost carrier trendsetter, is the first airline in the world operating the newest Boeing 737-900ER.

The company, which currently controls almost 35 percent of the Indonesian market, began its domination of the industry when it ordered 178 units of Boeing 737-900ER in 2005.

The first delivery of seven aircraft arrived last year, with eight more expected this year. All aircraft will have been delivered by 2016.

Lion Air's president director Rusdi Kirana, who is also the former chairman of the Indonesia National Air Carriers Association (INACA), shared his company's plans and business strategy with The Jakarta Post's Dian Kuswandini.

Question: What are the reasons behind Lion Air's plan to expand?

Answer: Everyone is talking about how globalization will lead to an open-sky market. For some, it's a threat to the local airline industry, but for me, it's an opportunity to expand. I'm not letting Lion Air become only a spectator. That's why we have set plans to go regional and have ordered 178 units of the latest Boeing 737-900ER to support the plans.

Recently, we opened routes to Vietnam and Singapore. By the end of this year or early next year we'll fly to Hong Kong, followed by routes to China, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Jeddah, Riyadh and India. We already obtained the permits for all of the routes from the Transportation Ministry.

We'll also acquire some airline companies in other countries, like Australia, Thailand and Malaysia. But it's still in process.

With Lion Air's strong capital and continually growing human resources of some 5,000 people -- 400 pilots and 700 aircrew members -- I'm positive about our plans.

How will you finance your plans?

We have many options, like banks, sponsors and leasing companies. Some of our aircraft are rented while some are paid in installments. In terms of funding, finance firms will consider the company's reputation and its country of origin.

Lion Air has never been in bad debt and has been one of the most favored airlines here; that's why we get financial support easily. The finance firms see Indonesia as a big and promising market.

Soaring oil prices have hurt the airline industry. How do you deal with price rises, especially when Lion Air is a low-cost carrier?

The soaring oil prices is really a dilemma, but it's not the end of everything. It's like natural selection, and the best will survive. Our strategy is to use new aircraft as they're more efficient in fuel consumption and provide greater capacity. For example, the old Boeing 737-200 only has 110 seats and its fuel consumption is 3,500 liters per hour. The new 737-900ER has 213 seats and its fuel consumption is 3,300 liters per hour.

Before the oil price increases, 30 percent of the company's operational costs went to fuel. Now, it's around 50 percent for new aircraft and 80 percent for the old ones. So, there's a big gap there.

Yes, new aircraft are more expensive, but their maintenance costs are lower compared to the old ones.

The local airline industry has been accused of ignoring safety standards, which has led to many accidents and being blacklisted by the EU. Your comments?

Air transportation is like a celebrity; a little mistake will spark gossip and blame. Even a troubled tire could be a headline. Other modes of transportation, like buses, could have worse accidents, but people pay less attention to them.

There's widespread gossip saying airlines fly with limited fuel in order to save costs. That's very wrong. No airline would want to take the risk of having an accident in fear of being bankrupt.

As for the EU ban, I see it as something unfair. Logically, before you ban something, you should first issue a warning. A ban is imposed when a warning is ignored. So, the EU should give airlines a chance before imposing bans. There should always be room for improvement. We learn form our mistakes.

Has Lion Air also learned from mistakes?

Of course. From past accidents we've learned that good human resources are nothing without good systems and technology. You can have the best pilots, but after all, they're just humans. They can be tired sometimes.

Understanding this, we have supported our employees with the latest systems and technology in our new aircraft. For example, we have FOQA (Flight Operational Quality Assurance) systems that allow us to monitor our pilots while doing their jobs.

Their activities are recorded and if they don't meet the required standards, they have to be trained again.

Another system we use is the Geneva system, which provides data on our employees. For example, if a pilot or an aircrew member tries to work overtime, the system will reject them and they're not allowed to fly. Our rule is, a pilot can't fly more than 80 hours per month.

We also have the Trax system, which allows us to track our maintenance activities and detect locations of our spare parts. The system will warn us when it finds a plane is in poor condition.

We also have the ACARS (Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System), which informs us of our planes' conditions when they're in operation. The system transmits the data to our office, so we always know when our planes are having trouble.

Our other technological device is Radar 4000, a 3-D device. While ordinary radars can detect a mountain, for example, this one can detect what's beyond the mountain.

Mid next year, we'll also use the Stabilizer Approach Monitor (SAM) system. It will give early warnings to pilots with alarms if they are likely to have unstable landings, whether its because they are at too high a speed or to high an altitude.

With these latest systems, we'll start phasing out our old aircraft in September.
