The current government also involves international aviation agencies in the process of checking aircraft feasibility. Moreover, at this time the Ministry of Transportation (Kemenhub) is conducting a special audit of the Lion Air airline after the PQ-LQP aircraft accident numbered JT 610 on October 29, 2018.
Budi explained that the Ministry of Transportation is currently communicating with several aviation related institutions such as the European Union (EU), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). "This is to coordinate the audit process that is being carried out and evaluate what improvements must be made," Budi said at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (Soetta) on Sunday (11/04).
Budi explained, Some workers from these institutions were in Indonesia. He asked all relevant parties in the Ministry of Transportation and operators (airlines and airports) to coordinate intensively with the international aviation agency.
He hopes that making the audit currently being carried out continues with the increase that must be made by all airlines and airports in Indonesia. "We consistently ensure that the feasibility of all airports and airlines in Indonesia is well maintained," Budi said.
Budi has reviewed the ramp check process of the Boeing 737 MAx 8 aircraft owned by Lion Air at Soetta Airport Terminal 1 today (Sunday, 4/11). Budi requested that this be done intensively on planes throughout the airlines.
He explained, the effort was in accordance with the instructions of President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) to tighten passenger safety management for all airlines. "The Ministry of Transportation has ramped up 11 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft and planes for all airlines," Budi said.
