Govt to Evenly Distribute Former Tigerair Routes

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Transportation Minister Evert Erenst Mangindaan said his ministry would evenly distribute the ex-four routes of budget carrier Tigerair Mandala among interested airlines. He added until now the government had yet to announce the route division.

“We haven’t decided on it yet because all airlines prefer the busy routes. We must also fly the non-busy ones so the people there can be reached by airlines. It should be fair,” the minister told reporters on Monday, July 1, 2014.

Mangindaan said the government was still figuring out possible means to serve the ex-Tigerair routes, which were Jakarta-Pekanbaru, Pekanbaru-Yogyakarta, Yogyakarta-Palembang, and Jakarta-Denpasar.

The ministry’s air transportation director Djoko Murjatmodjo told Tempo a number of airlines had voiced their interest in flying the routes, including Garuda Indonesia, Citilink, Lion Air and Nam Air.

“Some are interested in taking the routes. Garuda Indonesia has confirmed, but we will evaluate the route distribution later,” he said.

Earlier, Garuda Indonesia finance director Handrito Hardjono has confirmed the national flag carrier was keen on taking over the ex-Tigerair routes, which had been inoperative since July 1, 2014.
