JAKARTA – The Indonesian National Air Carriers Association (INACA) has appreciated the Ministry of Transportation’s step to increase the scheduled scheduled commercial airline fare rate from 30% to 40% of the upper limit rate.
“We are grateful that INACA’s proposal for the increase is approved by Kemenhub,” said Head of Scheduled Aviation Division of INACA Bayu Sutanto to Bisnis on Monday (16/10/2017).
He said INACA had indeed proposed to Kemenhub to raise tariffs on scheduled commercial aviation and approved for 15 solid routes.
Previously, Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi said the lower scheduled commercial airline flight schedule would be 40% of the upper limit rate. The goal is to ensure safety and comfort.
Budi said it agreed to lower tariff rates for scheduled commercial flights because there is currently an increase in the cost of production. According to him, the cost of production is related to the safety factor of the aviation world.
With the lower tariff hike of scheduled commercial airline flights, he hopes the flight safety factor is fully met by the domestic aviation world in addition to the level of service and security.
