Indonesia to ban airport ticket sales

Indonesia is proposing banning the sale of airline tickets at airport counters in a bid to reduce crowds and eliminate ticket scalpers at terminals. Consumer groups have objected to the move arguing that it will make it harder for passengers who want to buy tickets at the last minute for emergencies.

Regardless the government has given airport management and airlines three months to comply with the new rules.

“In the next three months, airlines will still be able to sell their tickets at airports, but they have to make sure they are not linked to any ticket scalpers,” said Transport Ministry spokesperson Julius Andravida. “If we find out they’re involved in illegal activities, that same day they need to move out.”
