Meanwhile, the Chairman Arif Wibowo INACA once said , the airline currently experiencing a very severe blow due to airport infrastructure , aviation fuel prices are high , and the weakening of the rupiah .
Inadequate airport infrastructure to make the airport is very solid , both on the ground and in the air . Density on the land side airport caused the plane to be lining up for take off and landing .
For takeoff line to the grounding line of the path it takes for 20 minutes , the airline that uses small class aircraft Airbus 320 or Boeing 737 will incur a loss of up to Rp 10 million . This loss was coming from fuel consumption .
" So , if 20 minutes late , can cost up to 1,000 dollars , or USD 10 million . Stay counted only if telatnya to 1 hour . Then , count again how many losses to be borne in 1 month . Harm to billions of dollars in terms of fuel , "he said .
Fuel costs would be swell when standing in line or plane circling in the air when the officer is not allowed to land by air navigation . ” How much should we incurred losses because 50 percent of airline operating costs derived from the fuel , ” said Arif .
As a result , the longer the delay , the airline operating expenses adds . According to him , to operate small aircraft , the airline must pay up to 6,000 dollars per hour . Therefore , in 2013 , almost all airlines in Indonesia bear the actual operational losses .
Observers flight , Gerry Soejatman , say , the upper limit of rates had been raised time .
"The condition of the airline has been very heavy . The government should support the revised rates based on ability to pay , not the desire to pay , " said Gerry .
With the rate increase above the threshold , the market will react . If people feel inadequate , they do not buy . If not able , they will seek other transportation alternatives .
