“3 Pesawat AirAsia Ditahan Bea & Cukai Bandara Soekarno-Hatta, Penumpang Mengamuk”

JAKARTA 21-7-2012–Tiga pesawat Indonesia AirAsia digrounded atau dilarang terbang sejak Jumat malam hingga kini, yang menyebabkan penumpukan penumpang di Terminal 3 Bandara Soekarno-Hatta.
“Memang ada pesawat kami yang digrounded, kami terlambat menyelesaikan proses administrasi spare part sehingga pesawat kami digrounded,” kata Humas AirAsia Indonesia Audery Progastama Petriny kepada Bisnis, Sabtu siang (21/7).
Kepala Pusat Komunikasi Publik Kementerian Perhubungan Bambang S. Ervan mengatakan setelah melakukan pengecekan, dilaporkan bahwa tiga pesawat Indonesia AirAsia dengan nomor registrasi PKAXG,PKAXS, PKAXM disegel oleh Bea dan Cukai.
“Alasan penyegelan belum diketahui. Dampaknya terjadi penumpukan penumpang di B Lounge,” kata Bambang.
Dia menambahkan pihak langkah tindak lanjut yakni telah berkoordinasi dengan  pihak Air Asia. “Kami meminta untuk menempatkan petugas di B Lounge guna memberikan layanan informasi kepada penumpang,” tuturnya.
Bambang menjelaskan pihak Indonesia AirAsia juga sedang mengupayakan penyelesaian dengan pihak Bea Cukai.
“Info terbaru, satu dari tiga pesawat yang disegel sudah diberangkatkan, ini di bawah wewenang Bea Cukai, Angkasa Pura II juga tidak bisa melepas,” ucap Bambang.
Salah satu penumpang Indonesia AirAsia, Agung mengatakan penumpang sempat mengamuk di Terminal 3 Bandara Soekarno-Hatta karena tidak diberikan penjelasan alasan keterlambatan. Dirinya saja yang harusnya terbang ke Yogyakarta pukul 09.55 WIB dengan nomor penerbangan QZ 7552, hingga kini (pukul 11.30 WIB) belum ada kepastian kapan diberangkatkan.
“Tadi penumpang yang ke Denpasar harusnya berangkat pukul 08.00 WIB marah-marah. Namun baru saja ini mereka dipanggil untuk naik pesawat,” kata Agung.
Dia mengaku sempat bertanya kepada petugas di bandara alasan keterlambatan, menurut petugas karena ada masalah spare part, sehingga pesawat dilarang terbang oleh pihak Bea Cukai bandara. (faa)

    At last the Pariah has been thought a good lesson for not paying airport tax. In Malaysia AA was able to owe for years under the Slumber Jack era. He thought that he could get away with it in Indonesia. MAB couldn’t act because the 4th was so powerful then. Syabas! Thank you Indonesia for teaching the Pariah a good lesson.

    Don’t worry folks, nothing will come out in the Star. Star will only publish positive news about AA and thee Pariah.

    Bagus sekali Pak… This is probably the lesson need to be taught to AA which MAB has no guts to so in Malaysia.
    A cr..k need a punitive way to learn how to do a business in a right way.

    AAsia’s fervent quest for world domination will backfire on Malaysia

    YB,

    After all be hidden help accorded to the Tune Air Group (TAG) by the “Govt”, the TAG OHQ will move to Jakarta. Whilst many would dare them to do so, they are threathening to turn KLIA2 into a white elephant if they do not get their way.

    My concern is if the control of TAG is sold/have already been sold to foreign hands. Then, the regional hubbing can easily move to SIN, BKK or CGK. It would take years for another Malaysian concern to build such an extensive network to supplement the hubbing ambitions of the country. The negative impact on MAHB would be immesureable et al.

    With MH currently rudderless, the future looks rather bleak. The unclear signals by the current Govt is bewildering to say the least. MH rebranding exercise may well turn out to be superfluous & a gross mismanagement of limited funds of a national carrier in dire straits. Amazing that, the Govt elected by the people for the people can be so blase, apparently.

      put it this way, if the MAHB CEO was on the take – he would not have made noise when AA withheld the airport taxes collected by AA on behalf of MAHB… neither is he a coward. He had in fact, made enough noise that it was rumored that AA wanted him GONE…. fortunately for MAHB, he also made enough noise, to stay on at MAHB!!

      When a Malaysian likes Tony Fernandez questioned an authority and don’t you think he have strong backer behind his back?

      MAHB have to reveal the minutes of meeting between MAHB & AirAsia as a proof and to shut TF mouth.

    Dont worry, remember TF once told all MAS staff at the Townhall “Bribery works in Malaysia”? Wouldn’t be surprised if he applied the same “Bisa diatur, pak” arrangement in Indonesia as well. Wonder if Indonesian consumer laws cover claims for serial “retimings” (aka delays for other more ethical airlines)?

    Very good. I’m glad the Indonesians have played hardball with Indonesia Air Asia over airport taxes owing, unlike MAHB who were pussies.

    Even without the Pariah on the Star Board, Star will never published an adverse news on AirASIA. With Pariah on the Board, what do you expect from Star.

    Star is just a mouth piece for AirAsia. It is just a propaganda machinery for the Pariah. Even the Pariah tweet was treated as newsworthy. It is only good at publishing anything adverse to MAS. Look at the news that Star churned out against MAS before the share swap. Star was setting the stage for the share swap. Just check all the news then if you don’t believe me.

    It is like ‘skim cepat kaya’. Any time from now AirAsia may face problem. Those who put money on this scheme had to reconsider it, otherwise you’ll ‘terjun’ like the Malay legend “Luncai terjun dengan labunya”.

      Thank you for the information. It has shed some light in the style of dissemination by certain media. It has published the acquisition prominently but it chose not to inform Malaysians of this piece of news that the Indonesian authority has yet to give approval of the acquisition of Bataavia Air.

      Have a nice day.

      with kindest regards

    WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? MAB JUST CLOSE LCCT WHEN KLIA2 IS OPERATIONAL. LET SEE WHAT THE PARIAH AND THE LITTLE NAPOLEONS IN KHAZANAH CAN DO.

    THANK GOD THE SLEEPY HEAD HAD GONE AND REMAIN VERY QUEST ENJOYING THE PERK IN MAS. ANOTHER GAJI BUTA OF THE WORST KIND!

    LET GET RID OF THE SLEEPY HEAD IN MAS AS HE WAS THE MAIN PLAYER TO SCREW MAS IN TERM OF GIVING UP ROUTES FOR THE PARIAH.
