Safety Ratings for Indonesian Airlines

Complete Results of Government Aviation Ratings for Both the March and June 2007 Safety Audits.


The Indonesian Department of Transportation has issued its the results of its scheduled re-audit of safety and air worthiness for all commercial air operators in Indonesia, following an initial audit in March 2007 which failed to see even a single domestic air carrier receive a "clean pass" Category I rating.

The Three Categories

Under the rigorous review of safety standards and safety management imposed by the Government, all airlines in Indonesia fall into one of the following safety rating categories:

Category I - an airline meets all safety requirements of Indonesia's civil aviation authority.

Category II - an airline has been determined to meet minimal requirements of civil aviation safety rules, but with outstanding safety issues still to be addressed.

Category III - airlines found to meet minimal civil aviation safety regulations but with some safety issues which may affect passenger safety still unaddressed. Airlines found in this category are generally given three months to achieve at least Category II status or face suspension of operations.

Improvements Seen in June 2007 Safety Audit.

The latest review of Indonesian commercial aviation saw Garuda Indonesia upgrade from Category II to Category I.

Managing to escape threats of imminent closure in the latest audit were six airlines that undertook the steps to get upgraded from Category III in the March audit to Category II in the June review: Metro Batavia, AdamSky Connection Airlines, Kartika Airlines, Trans Wisata Prima Aviation, Tri MG Intra Asia Airlines and Manunggal Air Service.

With the latest safety review the air operating certificate (AOC) of Jatayu Gelang Sejahtera airline was revoked as the result of that carrier's non-operation and resulting inability to file the meet the requirements to move out of the endangered Category III rating.

Some Airlines Make Substantial Strides

Perhaps most noteworthy was the ability of Garuda Indonesia to move from Category II to a top Category I classification receiving a point total of 168, up from the 146 Category II rating it received in March. The Director General of Civil Aviation, Budhi Suyitno, cited Garuda training and manpower policies, its international standard maintenance facility and strong technical support as justifying the higher rating in the latest audit.

The President Director of Adam Air was buoyant at his airline's escape from Category II status, saying his management team was targeting for a Category I rating by the end of 2007.

Shown on is a complete listing of the Indonesian government's aviation safety ratings for both the March and June 2007 reviews.
