President to launch new Surakarta airport

The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Sat, 03/07/2009 8:33 AM | National

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is scheduled to officially launch the new Adi Soemarmo International Airport and the airports's new special terminal for migrant workers in Surakarta, Central Java, on Saturday morning.

The president and First Lady Ani Yudhoyono are scheduled to arrive at an Air Force base in the regency at 9:30 and to go directly to the new airport.

The new terminal was constructed on a 13,000 square meter area, eight times bigger than the airport's older construction.

The new terminal consists of nine aprons and three other departure gates apart from the special gate for migrant workers. With this, the airport will have the capacity to accommodate 2.5 million passengers a year. (dre)

Govt mulls higher taxation on aging planes
The Jakarta Post | Fri, 03/27/2009 8:10 PM | Business

Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal said his ministry was considering proposing a higher tax on aging airplanes than on newer ones.

"Ideally, aging planes should be subject to higher taxes. This is expected to indirectly discourage the use of aging fleets and make airline companies aware of the fact that using old planes is inefficient," the minister said in Jakarta as quoted by Antara newswire on Friday.

The minister made the statement in connection with the frequent occurrence of accidents involving old planes of late.

Last Wednesday, a B737-200 passenger plane of Batavia Air developed a leak in one of its engines forcing it to cancel its take off from Soekartno-Hatta airport.

On March 23, a plane of the same type of Sriwijaya Air made an emergency landing at Hang Nadim Aiport, Batam, after one of its engines failed.

But the minister did not say when the progressive tax on old airplanes would be imposed. "This is an option. We want planes operated in Indonesia to have a maximal age of 21 years," the minister said.

He said it would be better if Indonesia could follow the example of Singapore where every plane which had been in operation for five years was 'put to rest'.

Djamal said that his ministry was encouraging airline companies to merge in an effort to avoid stiff competition among them.

"Ideally, Indonesia should only have seven airline firms with a fleet of 400 airplanes," the minister said.

Indonesia’s traffic up 3.5% last year; Lion Air now #1 among domestic carriers; still no non-stop flights to Western Europe
27th March 2009 | Country Feature | No Comments »

There’s little doubt which Indonesian carrier has the most fun or the main implication of its “love is in the air” themed marketing. The scenes are from Lion Air’s televised lottery and credit card promotions. It now also has the ‘lion’s share’ of domestic capacity (32.2%) over 34 routes.

This summer 56 airports across Indonesia will be hosting scheduled airlines services. According to government statistics these airports handled close on 80 million passengers last year, up 3.5% on 2007. Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta airport alone handled around 32 million passengers though the airport suffered from the demise last March of local carrier Adam Air which operated around 20 aircraft and was based at the airport.

Air traffic in Indonesia has recovered impressively from the East Asian financial crisis in the late 90s. Since 1999 passenger volumes at the country’s airports have more than trebled with growth of more than 25% in both 2003 (despite SARS impacting international traffic) and 2004. Since then growth has been at a more sustainable rate. While domestic traffic in 2008 was up just 2.4%, international traffic was up 9.1% as the country’s marketing campaign to celebrate “100 years of national awakening” increased international visitors.



Jakarta is by far the busiest airport in the country followed by Denpasar Bali and Surabaya. With a population of some 220 million people spread across several islands traffic should continue to grow strongly if the economy continues to prosper. If the UK’s propensity to travel (240 million airport passengers in an island country of around 60 million inhabitants) were applied to Indonesia, airport passenger numbers would be more than 10 times bigger than at present.
Six major players in the domestic market:
Airline Frequency share Capacity share Number of routes
Lion Air 24.6% 32.2% 34
Garuda Indonesia 30.3% 29.3% 31
Sriwijaya Air 16.7% 15.9% 39
Merpati 12.6% 9.1% 41
Indonesia AirAsia 5.3% 6.3% 9
Wings Air 6.1% 5.6% 15

Fast-growing Lion Air has recently surpassed Garuda as the biggest carrier in the domestic market based on share of seat capacity. Analysis of schedule data for the summer season reveals that six carriers have at least a five per cent share of domestic capacity.


Several domestic routes see all five of the largest domestic airlines competing head-to-head in the market, while most major routes have at least three carriers vying for the public’s patronage.
16 airports have international services

A total of 16 airports in Indonesia will be offering international flights this summer though Jakarta accounts for around 50% of all international capacity and Denpasar Bali a further 25%. Most of the remaining 14 airports are limited to serving Kuala Lumpur and/or Singapore. This week saw the launch of four new services from Indonesia to Singapore operated by Indonesia AirAsia. These were from Bandung, Denpasar Bali, Jakarta and Yogyakarta.

January: Sriwijaya Air starts twice daily Jakata-Singapore services. Routes to Malaysia and Singapore both account for around 30% of international seat capacity.

Routes to Malaysia and Singapore both account for around 30% of international seat capacity, followed by Hong Kong, Australia and Japan with between 5% and 7% each. The nearest thing to a direct service to Europe is Transaero’s twice-weekly flights to Moscow Domodedovo. There are no direct flights to anywhere in either North or South America. The leading airlines on international routes to and from Indonesia are:

Airline Frequency share Capacity share Number of routes
Garuda Indonesia 17.4% 15.1% 23
Indonesia AirAsia 14.6% 11.1% 17
AirAsia 12.6% 11.3% 13
Singapore Airlines 6.6% 10.8% 2
Malaysia Airlines 6.6% 6.0% 5
Cathay Pacific 2.8% 4.6% 3
On March 26th, 2009 Bali celebrated their Hindu’s New Year “Çaka” 1931 also known as “Nyepi”. It started at 06.00 and ended the next day at 06.00. “Nyepi” mean Silence. For the Hindu’s New Year in Bali, people stopped any activities and refrained from any worldly activities. They turned off all lights, fasted, stopped working, and kept away from entertainment. There were no activities in Bali on that day. The airport was closed. Even tourists were not allowed to go anywhere and stayed at the hotel for one day.

Lion Air currently only operates three international routes and ranks 10th among carriers. A total of 43 airlines currently operate international routes to and from Indonesia. This does not at present include any US carriers. Despite the lack of non-stop services to Europe both KLM and Lufthansa are present at the airport. KLM operates to Amsterdam via Kuala Lumpur while Lufthansa serves Frankfurt via Singapore. The ‘MEB3′ airlines are all present with Emirates and Etihad serving their home bases non-stop from Jakarta while Qatar Airways currently serves Doha from Jakarta via Singapore.

Garuda to Reopen Flight Route

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta: Garuda Indonesia reopened the flight route of Mataram – Denpasar on April 1st. The route was canceled a few years ago due to the economic crisis.

Garuda will fly everyday on this route using a Boeing 737-500 that has 12 seats in business class and 96 seats in economy.

The route was re-opened as there is a promising demand to Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara. Lombok has been known as beautiful and is not far from Bali.

According to Garuda's press release yesterday, Garuda expects more than 75 percent capacity on this route.

Garuda will open other routes this year such as Jakarta-Ambon-Ternate, Jakarta-Sorong-Manokwari, and Denpasar-Adelaide (Australia).

it's from december 2008, but i haven't heard from lorena air a quite time... I was expecting that they've already start services but this article says something different;

Lorena Air target to have two units of Airbus A230
Posted by Budiawan Hutasoit


Lorena Airlines one of the Indonesia local airlines has not despair to bring the aircraft, although they had failed several times. This airlines must pursue this target to have the aircraft before 25 June 2009 to get a flight operator certificate - Air Operator Certificate (AOC). Not surprisingly, Lorena is intensly to bring the two units of Airbus A230 in February 2009.

According to the Head of Public Communication Center's Department of Transportation, Bambang S Ervan, Lorena really need to bring the aircraft to meet the requirements of AOC regulations. "If more than June 2009, their business licenses will be revoked," he said in Jakarta (17/12/2008).

Vice President Production of Lorena Air, Mr. Suhadi said, the fleet capacity of 160 people was purchased from Waha Leasing Company - a Dubai company - which is headquartered in France. Unfortunately, Suhadi reluctant to mention the value of the investment to buy these two aircraft. But as an illustration, the new unit price of Airbus A230 is around U.S. $ 45 million.

Lorena apparently will not rely on the funding of this investment from bank loans or financial institutions. Conversely, Lorena able to make the funding from their own money.

Although the price of renting aircraft are currently cheap, the process of procurement of the aircraft is quite tough. Suhadi said, as a new airline, such as Lorena was still not get the trust from the leaser. "Especially with the case of Adam Air leaser trust has decreased," said Suhadi.

Even Lorena Airline is a new player and also the economic conditions currently is not stabilized, but Lorena remains confident with their flight business. Moreover, with a stopper of Adam Air airline, which normally operates 22 aircraft, the presence of Lorena with 2 aircraft are still seize the market with their full service promising concept.

The licenses will be revoked.
Selasa, 31 Maret 2009, 13:35 WIBIsmoko Widjaya

VIVAnews - The Department of Transportation may revoke the business permits of 40 airlines because they do not meet the set standards.

"It means that they're not ready to fly," Directorate General of Air Transportation Heri Bakti told VIVAnews on Tuesday, March 31.

"The licenses will be revoked. Some of the airlines have been in operation, some have not," said Bakti, former Administrator Head of Soekarno-Hatta Airport.

Prior to announcing a revocation threat, the Department of Transportation had already issued a warning in 2008.

"The chance has been given since last year. It has been prolonged several times, but it is denied," he said. Therefore, the Department of Transportation will give deadline until June 2009.

These are the listed airlines whose permits may be revoked, whose number is less than 40:

1. PT Golden Air
2. PT Asia Avia Megatama
3. PT Bali International Air Service
4. PT Eka Sari Lorena Airlines
5. PT Star Air
6. PT Air Paradise International
7. PT Indonesian Airlines Avi Patria
8. PT Bayu Indonesia
9. PT Bouraq Indonesia

And, indonesian airliners are still on the ban list of the european union. (updated a week ago)
So, we'll have to wait 'til the next update in july to see if Garuda Indonesia has the possibility to re-continue their passenger services to Amsterdam.

Indonesian airlines must grow or be shut down
Published: 2009/04/1

JAKARTA: Indonesia will require passenger airlines to fly at least 10 planes by 2012 or be shut down under new rules to improve safety and service, a transportation ministry official said yesterday.

Under the new rules, at least five of the 10 planes must be wholly owned, the official said.

“By 2012, all airlines must fully own at least five planes and lease the rest. If not, they will have to shut down or merge with other airlines to meet the quota,” ministry spokesman Bambang Ervan said. — AFP

What do you mean, ALL Indonesian airlines are banned in EU? That's unfair.

Because The EU is targeting the regulatory bodies (the govt) and not the airlines themselves.

Some airlines actually do have high security standards (e.g. GA), but by excluding them, the govt wont see any point of improving anything. Even with blanket ban in place, they still rather busy pointing fingers than solving the problems.

Yup. The Indonesian government needs to take a more pro-active step. I'm surprised the govt has not attempted to "encourage" airline consolidation.

Terminal 3 ready for takeoff

Multa Fidrus , The Jakarta Post , JAKARTA | Thu, 04/16/2009 12:59 PM | Headlines


Passengers at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport will be able to breathe easier, thanks to the new Terminal 3 that is expected to lighten the load on terminals 1 and 2.

The newly built terminal, for domestic flights, is located next to Terminal 2.
“As of today, we open the new terminal to the public for the operation of two airlines serving domestic destinations: Air Asia and Mandala Airlines,” airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II public relation manager Trisno Heryadi told reporters Wednesday.
Unlike terminals 1 and 2, which were designed with a traditional architectural concept, the Rp 300 billion (US$27.27 million) Terminal 3 is designed with a modern concept as an environmentally friendly and energy-saving building occupying a 3-hectare plot.
“The remaining work at the new terminal now is only the finishing of some supporting facilities, such as the parking lot, ticket booths and shopping arcade,” he said.
The new terminal is designed to accommodate as many as 4 million passengers each year for the two airlines.
Trisno said Terminal 1 for domestic flights and Terminal 2 for international flights were initially designed to accommodate as many as 9 million passengers each per year, but records show annual passenger arrivals at the airport have topped 32 million in the past two years.
“This caused the existing two terminals to become overloaded; the opening of Terminal 3 will reduce the burden on Terminal 1 from 16 million to 11 million passengers each year, at least,” he said.
The Jakarta Post observed the airport management had yet to provide airline ticket and taxi service booths at the new terminal, so Air Asia and Mandala passengers still had to buy tickets at Terminal 1 or through travel agents.

Air Asia provides a special bus service to ferry passengers from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3, while other passengers used the airport’s free shuttle buses serving terminals 1 and 3.
Angkasa Pura II will start building a connecting building between Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 this year.
Yudi Jenggot, an Air Asia passenger heading to Yogyakarta, said he and some friends found no problems at all reaching the new terminal, because they had already been informed by the airline about the move.
“So far, so good. No problems. We also saw the written notices over at Terminal 1,” he said.
Another passenger, Ira Wardiah, booked on a flight to Medan, North Sumatra, said she and her mother had no problems at all with the moving of the departure from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3.

President to inaugurate Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta airport



Tangerang (ANTARA News) - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is scheduled to inaugurate Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta airport on Tuesday, April 28, a spokesman said.

Airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II spokesman Sutrisno said here on Satuday that the terminal which would be commissioned by the president was previously a terminal for hajj pilgrims and Indonesian workers intending to work overseas.

Built since 2006 at a cost of Rp285 billion, the terminal now is expected to provide more accommodating services to air passengers at Soekarno-Hatta airport, he said.

He said t had actually been operating since last April 15, 2009 because its construction was already completed and was already appropriate to serve passengers.(*)

Lion Air: Asia's Fastest Growing Airline..

Lion Air to fly Jeddah direct, serving pilgrims, workers
Novan Iman Santosa , The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Thu, 04/30/2009 3:13 PM | Business

Indonesian airline Lion Air is to fly daily to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to serve migrant workers, tourists, business travelers and Muslim pilgrims - igniting a head-to-head competition with bigger rival Garuda Indonesia.

The new route was officially announced Wednesday by president director Rusdi Kirana at a media conference. The inaugural flight is set for June 28.

"The market is so huge we are not afraid about competition," he said.

"We are targeting a load factor of 85 to 90 percent."

Currently only the national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia and Saudi Airlines serve the route.

Aside from tourists and business markets the main demand is for pilgrims for haj and umrah (minor haj).

Rusdi added that Lion Air, which has secured all the required permits from both Saudi Arabian and Indonesian authorities, did not consider Garuda as their main competitor despite offering almost the same direct and full-services flights.

"For us, the competitors are foreign airlines bringing Indonesian passengers to the Middle East through third countries," he said.

Rusdi said up to 1 million Indonesians are estimated to reside in Saudi Arabia, mostly migrant workers.

The Jeddah route is Lion Air's first long-haul flight, but its fourth international route after Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

The airplane will fly from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport at 12:30 p.m. and arrived in Jeddah's King Abdulaziz International Airport at 6 p.m. local time.

The return flight will depart at 8 p.m. local time and arrive at 9:30 a.m. Jakarta time.

"We offer a good schedule for the Jeddah route as it allows our passengers to connect with our more than 30 domestic routes easily," Rusdi said.

"This is what we can offer to our passengers, which cannot be offered by the foreign airlines."

Although Lion Air is known as a low-cost carrier for its domestic routes, Rusdi said the Jeddah route would be a full-service flight offering two meals and other amenities such as blankets and personal entertainment system, including for economy class seats.

"We have also prepared the human resources including 20 pilots, 160 flight attendants and 40 technicians," he said.

Two Boeing 747-400 airplanes will serve the route, with one of them providing back-up.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Association of Indonesian Haj and Umrah Organizers (Amphuri), Baluki Ahmad, welcomed the opening of the Jeddah route.

"The new flights will really help Muslims who want to perform umrah pilgrimages as there are more seats," he said over the phone.

Basuki said about 210,000 Indonesian made the haj pilgrimage in 2008 while another 120,000 Indonesians made the umrah pilgrimage.

Jeddah serves as the main entry and exit gate for international pilgrims.

This is due to its proximity to Islam's two holiest cities, Mecca and Medina, where millions of Muslims from all over the world make pilgrimages every year.

The United States Export-Import Bank has recently approved more than US$1 billion in financing for Lion Air to improve passenger fleets, generate business and create jobs in Indonesia.

The financing will allow the airline to access $238 million to purchase new Boeing 737-900ER planes and provide preliminary authorization for another $841 million, for a total of 30 new passenger jets.
