Merpati Gets its Wings Back

Pertamina End Fuel Embargo on Indonesian State-Owned Airlines Merpati Nusantara

(10/22/2011) The State-owned oil company Pertamina has recommenced aviation fuel supply to the State-owned airline Merpati Nusantara, effective Saturday, October 15, 2011.

Fuel supplies were cut off to the airline at selected airport due to more than US$62 million in unpaid fuel bills owed Pertamina. [See: Running on Empty?

Pertamina spokesman, M. Harun, quoted by Bisnis Bali, confirmed that fuel supplies for Merpati which had been momentarily stopped at the airports of Surabaya and Makassar, have now been resumed after a deal was struck between the government, Merpati and Pertamina.
