Three local airlines, including Lion Air, Merpati Air and Sriwijaya Air received a red report in their on-time performance (OTP) for their failure to meet the government’s standards. Djoko Murjatmodjo, the ministry’s acting transportation director, said Friday.
From January to November, Djoko said that Lion Air’s OTP was 66.78 percent average while Merpati’s and Sriwijaya Air’s were 68.43 percent and 69.87 percent, respectively.
“We have reprimanded the airlines in order that they will improve their on-time performance,” he said.
An airline would be categorized of having a poor time performance if their OTP was below 70 percent, he said.
Although it is still below the standard, Lion Air’s OTP showed an improvement rising to 65.11 percent in November from 63.85 percent in October. Similar with Lion, Sriwijaya Air had made some improvements.
