Sriwijaya Air Has to Pay Compensation
TEMPO Interactive, Pontianak:Sriwijaya Air is required to pay compensation
for the delay of a number of flights after Sriwijaya aircraft skidded on the Supadio Airport runway in Pontianak, Thursday, May 31, 2012. Nineteen flights suffered a 27-hour delay. "We will demand compensation," said Commercial Director of Batavia Air, Sukirno Sukarna, Saturday, June 2, 2012.
According to Sukirno, the Sriwijaya plane's accident caused three of his airline flights to be delayed. "We had to provide hotel accommodation for the passengers who were delayed not because of our mistake," said Sukirno. But Sukirno refused to disclose how much costs his [airline] had to bear due to the flight delay.
The Supadio Airport, too, suffered billions of rupiah in financial losses. "We haven't calculated [the costs] in detail," PT Angkasa Pura II duty officer Syarif Usmulyani Alkadri Saturday, June 2, 2012. He said Angkasa Pura [airport authority] Saturday morning, June 2, was still concentrating on lifting the aircraft by means of four heavy equipment machines.
PT Sriwijaya Air spokesman Agus Sujono said his side paid only the hotel costs for his own passengers. "We bear the hotel accommodation costs, but for only the Sriwijaya passengers," said Agus.
Transport Ministry spokesman Bambang S. Ervan said Transportation Ministry Regulation No. 77 Year 2011 does not regulate the matter of delay. The regulation only governs accidents caused by an [airline] company. "It is not regulated by the ministry regulation for delay due to an accident."
The ill-fated Sriwijaya aircraft was evacuated from the runway Thursday at 12:45 hours West Indonesia Time. "The airport is back to normal," said Bambang S. Ervan. There is no fatality in the mishap.
