Indonesia to reduce airlines

Indonesia’s civil aviation authority is planning to reduce the number of airlines operating in the country from 53 to 28. This ruling, which was introduced in 2009 but has not yet been implemented, was a reaction to the fact that many of the country’s carriers failed to satisfy a minimum fleet-size of no fewer than 10 aircraft each, five of which they must own.

The ruling applies to 41 scheduled airlines, five charter operators and seven cargo carriers.

The government hopes the new rule will create stronger carriers and help avoid a similar situation to 2007 when financial crises forced many Indonesian airlines to abruptly stop operating.
