(4/21/2007)

The U.S. Embassy in Jakarta has posted a warning on its website urging U.S. nationals to to fly directly to the Indonesian destinations on international carriers "from countries whose civil aviation authorities meet international aviation safety standards for the oversight of their air carrier operations under the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) program."

As reported on balidiscovery.com, the Indonesian government on March 22, 2007 introduced a new rating system covering all domestic civil air operators and dividing them into three categories depending on the assessed safety of each airline. [See: On the Eve of Closure, Adam Air Gets a Reprieve]

Following the new classification system by the Indonesian Government, on April 16, 2007 the FAA announced that it had revised Indonesia's safety oversight category from Category 1 to Category 2 due to serious concerns about Direcor General of Civil Aviation's safety oversight and operational control systems. Category 2 indicates that the FAA has assessed the Government of Indonesia's Civil Aviation Authority as not being in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards for the oversight of Indonesia's air carrier operations.

The move by the U.S. Government effectively calls into question the safety of all domestic air operators in Indonesia, urging U.S. citizens to only into major international gateways on foreign airlines and avoid internal connection flights within Indonesia.
