17 January 2006

The Indonesian government has banned the registration of commercial jet aircraft aged more than 20 years in a bid to improve aviation safety. The Transport Minister signed a decree limiting the operational age of passenger and cargo jets in the country at 20 years, or 50,000 landings and take offs. The decree applies to aircraft registered after its signing. Aircraft can currently be used for a maximum of 30 years or 70,000 landings and take offs. (AFP)
