61 flights suspended in Indonesia

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

flight canceledIndonesia's transport ministry has suspended 61 flights of five airlines after it found them to be lacking flight permits based on a four-day audit at five airports this week.

The audit and new measures came after it was discovered that the Indonesia AirAsia Flight QZ8501 that crashed on December 28, a Sunday, did not have a permit to fly from Surabaya's Juanda airport to Singapore on Sundays.

The ministry's audit found that the country's largest privately run airline, LionAir, accounted for the largest number of breaches. It had 35 flights grounded this week for lacking permits while its subsidiary Wings Air had 18 flights grounded, followed by Garuda Indonesia with four.

One TransNusa flight was grounded, as well as three from Susi Air, a chartered plane company.

The airlines will have to apply for permits for the grounded flights if they want to resume them.
