Indonesia has suspended the Air Operator Certificates (AOCs) of four airlines after a safety audit found that they failed to meet minimum standards in several safety categories.
The airlines involved are Pura Wisata Baruna, Sampoerna Air Nusantara, Dabi Air Nusantara and Atlas Deltasatya. They have three months to comply with regulations.
Four out of five airlines that had their AOCs suspended in July 2008 have now been allowed to operate again since they now meet safety standards. These four airlines are: SMAC, Asco Nusa Air, Tri-MG Intra Asia Airlines and Dirgantara Air Service. The fifth airline, Helizona, had its AOC revoked. (Channel News Asia)
