Indonesian National Air Carriers Association (INACA) has approved an increase to a maximum of Rp. 75,000 (approximately US$.8.00) per flight hour on all domestic flights.
Despite the higher permissible increase, Garuda Indonesia has announced that they will only be increasing domestic economy air fares from between Rp. 10,000 - 20,000 (between US$1.00-2.15) per hour flown, depending on the actual flight's duration.
Business class tickets on domestic sectors will increase Rp. 100,000 per hour (approximately US$10.75).
The increase in domestic tickets - reflecting practice on most international flights, was made necessary by recent increase in the price of aviation fuel from Rp. 3,765 to Rp. 4,565 per liter (approximately US$0.40 to US$0.48).
