Manunggal Air AOC revoked

Indonesian BAe 146 operator Manunggal Air had its Air Operators Certificates (AOC) was revoked by the country’s Ministry of Transportation on 1 August. Manunggal Air was one of six airlines who lost their AOC for failing to meet criteria for minimum fleet size. Under a 2009 law, airlines must have at least ten aircraft, five of which must be owned. In January, new Transportation Minister Ignatius Jonan announced his intention to enforce the law, giving airlines until the end of June to come into compliance. Despite an extension to the end of July, several airlines — including Manunggal Air — had made no progress and so lost their AOCs. Manunggal operated three BAe 146-100s at various times, but only PK-VTN (msn E1104) is still on strength, and she appears to have been parked at Jakarta’s Halim Airport for some time. PK-VTA (msn E1015) was sold to SkyJet in late 2013, while PK-VTM (msn E1009) was broken up.
Additional details on Manunggal Air’s BAe 146 operations would be extremely welcome. Please contact the editor.
