2 be honest, im surprised by the services of lion air at my holiday this summer.
I went to ambon (from juanda sby) with the 734 and that was on time.
And i was surprised when the return flight was a new 739er instead of the 400. It felt fresh, new and safe and this flight was also on time. (i heard stories about the lack of services and etc)
The only thing they should change is the way how they serve people on transit. They say 20 minutes transit while it was at least 40-45 min....

Wings air on the other hand is just really a low budget thing, i went with them from juanda to denpasar with a md82 and they just have to retire that damn plane...the approach at the return flight to juanda was really worse, sitting next to the motor on seatrow 31 with no vision (except the engine) and a really hard sound. Some liquid (of the airco i think) was leaking and a lot of airco thingies where broken or couldn't be changed. The jumpseat of one of the stewardess broke half down when she wanted to clap out the jumpseat before the landing. It says enough about wings air. I had also the feeling that these stewardess' on the flight were not that serious. Of course, it's only 40 minutes but there were 5 of them (Regular flights with lion air 734 has only 3 attendants) and they were too much joking with each other instead of being professional. I really hope they get rid of the md82's, but that's gonna take some time

Australia drags Garuda to court
Ika Krismantari , The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Thu, 09/03/2009 9:36 AM | Business

The Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) has filed a lawsuit against national carrier Garuda Indonesia over allegations that it may have conspired with other airlines to fix air freight cost prices.

The lawsuit comes as part of a fully fledged investigation that started last year with allegations of possible price fixing involving major players in the airline industry.

In a statement released on Wednesday, ACCC accused Garuda of entering arrangements with other international air cargo carriers in Hong Kong and Indonesia between 2001 and 2006 involving price fixing for fuel and security surcharges.

A hearing has been scheduled on the lawsuit against Garuda on Oct. 22 at the Sydney Federal Court, which will make the Indo-nesian firm the 10th airline to be taken to court by the consumer watchdog.
To date, the court has ordered a total of US$41 million in penalties against offenders.

On Dec. 11, 2008, the court ordered Qantas Airways Limited and British Airways PLC to pay penalties of $20 million and $5 million respectively.

On Feb. 16 the court ordered Air France, Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij NV (KLM), Martinair Holland NV and Cargolux International Airlines SA to pay penalties of $3 million, $3 million, $5 million and $5 million respectively.

The court is also starting proceedings against Singapore Cargo Pte Ltd, Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd and Emirates.

According to the Wednesday statement, ACCC was seeking injunctive relief, pecuniary penalties, and costs on Garuda’s alleged involvement, whilst it would continue to investigate other airlines along with cooperating parties.

“Further actions are expected during the next few months,” the statement says.

Garuda spokesperson Pujobroto denied the allegations.

He confirmed however that the company did apply a security surcharge for cargo services in
Australia, but not with reference to other airlines. Prices were “applied on a completely separate basis,” he said.

Pujobroto said the company was still assessing legal steps to counter the lawsuit. Other non-Australian airlines that have been dragged to court by ACCC have argued that the competition watchdog does not have jurisdiction over them because air cargo flown to Australia from overseas was beyond
the definition of a “market in Australia” under the country’s Trade Practices Act.

The air freight industry has been investigated by regulators in various countries, namely Australia, the US and the UK during the past two years, with more than 30 airlines facing scrutiny.

In Nov. 2007 the US Department of Justice fined Qantas $61 million after it pleaded guilty to involvement in a six-year price-fixing cartel on the trans-Pacific route, and so far 11 airlines have admitted to some collusion on pricing.

Batavia air newest fleet - A330-200, the second A330-200 will arrive on 1st of october

Quote:

http://www.angkasa-online.com/read/n...engan.a330-200









ANGKASA-ONLINE.COM - Batavia Air, kemarin sore (31/8), memperkenalkan sebuah pesawat berbadan lebar jenis Airbus A330-200. Peresmian dilakukan di halaman hanggar Batavia Air di Komplek Bandara Soekarno-Hatta dengan acara potong tumpeng dan buka bersama.

Menurut Presiden Direktur Batavia Air Yudiawan Tansari, kedatangan pesawat yang bernomor registrasi PK-YVI ini menandai era baru bagi Batavia Air. Batavia, menurutnya, akan semakin serius untuk membuka rute-rute internasional.

"Sebelumnya kami telah membuka rute internasional di Kuching (Malaysia) dan Guangzhou (Cina). Dengan pesawat ini, kami akan membuka rute ke Timur Tengah. Bahkan tidak menutup kemungkinan ke Australia, Jepang atau Korea,” ujarnya.

Pada pertengahan Juni lalu, Batavia memang mengumumkan akan membuka tujuan penerbangan ke Jeddah dan Riyadh. Rencananya mereka akan terbang pada tanggal 10 Agustus lalu. Namun hingga saat ini ternyata ijin belum didapat. “Kami saat ini sedang serius mengurus ijin ke sana,” ujar Public Relations Manager Batavia Air Eddy Haryanto. Ia mengharapkan pada bulan Oktober nanti ijin sudah didapat.
Untuk sementara, pesawat yang mempunyai 320 tempat duduk yang semuanya ekonomi itu akan digunakan melayani rute Jakarta-Medan dan Jakarta-Menado. Penerbangan perdananya akan dilakukan tanggal 6 September nanti. Jadi pada lebaran nanti, pemudik ke kedua kota itu akan dapat menikmati kenyamanan pesawat ini.

Dari penelusuran Angkasa, pesawat yang bernomor registrasi PK-YVI ini disewa dari perusahaan penyewaan pesawat ILFC. Sebelumnya, pesawat yang mengudara pertama kali tanggal 4 April 2000 ini digunakan oleh maskapai Aer Lingus dari Irlandia. (Gatot R)

The A330 in Batavia Air colors look nice but I really HATE the large "beat-you-over-the-head" 'A330' on the fuselage.

The main point is they are looking for middle east routes and if the market is there, they will also open new routes, like Japan, Australia and Korea.

cheers

Mandiri wants hefty returns on Garuda's old debts
The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Tue, 09/15/2009 12:11 PM | Business

Bank Mandiri, the nation's largest lender, is asking the government's help to ensure the recovery of about Rp 1 trillion (US$100 million) in troubled loans owed by national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, plus an 18 percent return, an execu-tive says.

Mandiri president director Agus Martowardojo said Monday the government's support was needed to ensure that the loan settlement, which is currently under discussion, include the return on the loan, as agreed to under an earlier restructuring agreement.

Agus was referring to a 2001 agreement, when the bank agreed to restructure Garuda's debt with a government guarantee from the Financial Sector Policy Committee, with an 18 percent interest rate.

Under the restructuring agreement, the debt was changed into convertible bonds that could be converted into shares which would later be sold when Garuda carried out an initial public offering (IPO), then scheduled for 2003.

The 2001 agreement faltered after Garuda failed to hold the IPO and the debt then fell into the category of a bad loan, following the airline's inability to repay the loan as its performance had weakened.

Now Garuda's financial performance is starting to recover and its plan for a public offering is on the horizon - while it has also restructured loans to other large creditors, Mandiri has requested that a similar deal would be struck with them.

"So if in the upcoming IPO (initial public offering) the results are not what we expected, we can still get the expected return," Agus told reporters.

Garuda is expected to sell shares in the stock market next year.

Agus said the bank had targeted to settle Garuda's debt this September, but knowing that the IPO could take place next year, he realized that this (earlier target) was unlikely.

However, State Minister of State Enterprises Sofyan Djalil, whose office facilitated earlier debt restructuring talks, was convinced a deal would be reached between the two companies sometime next week.

"It's still underway and hopefully *the loan restructuring* will be resolved next week," Sofyan told reporters, adding that the two enterprises were still busy calculating how many shares would be handed over to Mandiri.

Garuda president director Emirsyah Satar also said that Garuda would not convert all of its loan into shares.

"We *will* just convert some of the loans while the rest would be paid with cash," Emirsyah said, adding that the company planned to pay less than 20 percent of its loans off in cash.

Emisyah refused to give further details.

Previously Mandiri said that it would intensify the settlement of loans owed by its four large debtors, including Garuda, totaling well over Rp 2.5 trillion.

The other creditors are business giant Djajanti Group, Suba Indah and Dewata Royal. (Ika Krismantari/naf)

Surabaya’s Juanda wins airport toilet award

Erwida Maulia , The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Wed, 09/30/2009 10:15 PM | National

Surabaya’s Juanda International Airport has won the Culture and Tourism Ministry’s 2009 toilet award, beating out 2007 winner Denpasar’s Ngurah Rai Airport, which now drops to fourth.

Indonesia’s main gateway, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, just outside Jakarta, moves up from fourth in 2007 to second, in the biennial “Sapta Pesona Clean Public Toilet Award”.

The award was first handed out in 2007, and has so far involved only international airports.

Acting Culture and Tourism Minister Muhammad Nuh said he expected the award in future to also cover public toilets at tourist sites across the country.

“Granting the award to those running public toilets at tourist sites is expected to improve the quality of products and services, particularly in term of cleanliness … as part of efforts to enhance the image of national culture,” Nuh said during the award presentation ceremony.

Both Juanda and Soekarno-Hatta received a three-star rating from the jury, made up of representatives from various organizations, including the Indonesian Toilet Association, the Indonesian Consumer Foundation and the Indonesian Housekeeping Association.

The two airports are followed in the rankings by Bandung’s Husein Sastranegara, Ngurah Rai, Surakarta’s Adi Sumarmo, Yogyakarta’s Adi Sutjipto, Padang’s Bumi Minangkabau, Palembang’s Mahmud Badaruddin 2 and Makassar’s Sultan Hassanuddin; each of these was given a two-star rating.

Flights to Padang canceled after quake
The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Wed, 09/30/2009 9:40 PM | National

State airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II has temporarily closed Minangkabau Airport in Padang due to damage to the facility from the 7.6-magnitude earthquake that rocked the West Sumatra capital Wednesday.

Edward Silooy, administrator of Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, told Antara two flights to Padang had been canceled following the quake.

“One of the planes had taken off, but returned to Jakarta an hour later because the damaged Minangkabau Airport was reported to be inaccessible,” Edward said.

There are 10 regular flights from Jakarta to Padang every day.

Edward said Angkasa Pura had sent a team to evaluate the damage to Minangkabau Airport.

"The team will only file a report tomorrow, so we’re not sure how long the flight suspension will last,” he said.

KLM, Garuda to resume deal
Novan Iman Santosa , The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Fri, 10/02/2009 1:33 PM | Business

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is ready to resume its interline agreement with Garuda Indonesia, after the Indonesian flag carrier was allowed back into European airspace.

The Air France KLM country manager for Indonesia, Axel Colen, told The Jakarta Post on Thursday the interline agreement with Garuda had been in place long before the latter was banned from European airspace after a slew of air accidents in Indonesia.

"Now that the ban has been lifted, we are ready to resume the agreement," he said.

"We still have to wait two to three weeks before we can fully implement it again, because we have to wait for some technical problems to be resolved."

Colen added both airlines were working to enable their ticketing systems "to talk to each other in issuing the e-tickets".

An interline agreement allows two airlines to have two different flights on one ticket, thus reducing the hassle for travelers.

"For example, a passenger can fly from Surabaya to Jakarta with Garuda, and then continue to fly to Amsterdam with KLM," Colen said.

"Each airline will still have its own code in each sector it serves."

Colen said it would different from the codeshare agreement, in which all codes belong to an airline, even if the passenger flies with partner airlines.

When asked when would KLM would ink a codeshare agreement with Garuda, Colen said it would be the second stage after the interline agreement.

"But KLM passengers will be able to enjoy Garuda's vast network already, even before the codeshare agreement is made," he said.

Colen was speaking on the sidelines of a press conference to commemorate the 85th anniversary of KLM's first intercontinental flight, from Amsterdam to Jakarta, at the time the world's longest scheduled route.

Also attending the conference were Marnix Fruitema, the Air France KLM senior vice president for Asia Pacific, and Paul Rombeek, the Air France KLM general manager for Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand.

That first flight on Oct. 1, 1924, only five years after KLM had been established, was made by a Fokker F-VII from Schiphol Airport.

The airplane was registered H-NACC and named Pelikaan.

In September 1929, the flight was made into a regular fortnightly service when the travel time was shortened to 12 days.

The service was then improved over time to a weekly and then twice-weekly flight.

KLM currently flies to route with a fleet of Boeing 737-200s and 777-300ERs in a time of 12 hours, with a short stop in Kuala Lumpur.

Fruitema said the Indonesian market had huge potential, adding Air France KLM would continue to invest and explore opportunities here, as well as improve its services.

"Expansion plans are always in our strategic outlook," he said at the press conference.

By PRESS RELEASE

Airline to operate Boeing 737-800NG from Bangkok in 2010

Indonesia's national airline, Garuda Indonesia, will increase flights on its Bangkok-Jakarta route to a daily service this month, from the current thrice-weekly flights. The airline will also increase capacity on this route by 15%.

KLM currently flies to route with a fleet of Boeing 737-200s and 777-300ERs in a time of 12 hours, with a short stop in Kuala Lumpur.

Fruitema said the Indonesian market had huge potential, adding Air France KLM would continue to invest and explore opportunities here, as well as improve its services.

"Expansion plans are always in our strategic outlook," he said at the press conference.
