Batik Air allowed to fly in Europe after 11 year ban
Batik Air has been removed from Europe's list of banned airlines — along with other Indonesian airlines — as the EU put in place a new system that will evaluate which aircraft are deemed safe enough to fly within and throughout Europe. The new system is being run by Eurocontrol, which is an air traffic control company that cover 41 member and two comprehensive agreement states.
Batik Air was granted access to fly in Europe after the whole of Indonesia passed an International Civil Aviation Organisation audit which saw Batik Air, along with two other Indonesian airlines, being given a seven-star safety rating. Batik Air has been banned from flying in Europe since 2007 when all Indonesian airlines were deemed unsafe to fly in the continent. However, after Batik Air's extremely high safety rating, the EU air travel executives can see no reason why the airline shouldn't be able to fly in European airspace.

Low-cost airline, Lion Air Group, is offering Malaysian students in Indonesia the opportunity to travel across the country with special air ticket prices.
Its chief executive officer Edward Sirait said the offer was one way to celebrate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries this year.
He said the offer for Malaysian students included the group’s Lion Air, Wings Air and Batik Air for its domestic travel in Indonesia.
"This is a form of respect by Lion Air Group to celebrate the 60th anniversary of bilateral cooperation between Indonesia and Malaysia," he said when launching the special programme at the Malaysian Embassy here yesterday.
He said, however, the special price offer would be different from one region to another and Malaysian students only needed to fill out certain data when booking tickets.
There are over 5,000 Malaysian students in Indonesian universities.
Meanwhile, Malaysia's Ambassador to Malaysia, Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim, said he welcomed the offer as it would provide opportunities for Malaysian students to visit tourist attractions in Indonesia.
He said as students they would have been looking for cheap flights to travel in the country during the holiday season or when they they had the free time.
Zahrain said the Lion Air Group's offer proved that the private sector in Indonesia had always worked with Malaysia and celebrated diplomatic ties between the two countries since Malaysia achieved Independence.
Batik Air becomes the new full-service player for Perth-Bali flights
After several false starts, Indonesia’s Batik Air will launch a twice-daily service on the highly competitive Perth to Bali route next month, while Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines, the world’s fifth-biggest airline, considers flights to WA.
This week Batik confirmed the service to Perth would start on June 21 in a statement from a public relations manager for the airline’s parent, the Lion Air Group, Andy Saladin.
“Full service Batik Air will open a new Denpasar to Perth flight twice-daily starting June 21,” Mr Saladin said.
Batik operates Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s and flies to 31 domestic destinations as well as Singapore.
The airline, which offers business and economy class, recently received approval to fly to Europe and also passed the stringent IATA Operational Safety Audit on November 17.
The flights depart from Perth at 8.30am and 6.20pm and arrive back at 4.30pm and 12.20am. Both flights are to be operated by 737-900ERs with 172 seats.
Batik’s business-class seats are set at 45 inches apart and the economy seats are at a generous 32 inches. All passengers have free in-flight entertainment and meals.
Batik joins Garuda Indonesia, Indonesia AirAsia and Jetstar on the Bali route.
Tigerair withdrew from Bali earlier this year after Indonesian authorities revoked its operating certificate over minor technicalities.
Meanwhile, officials from China Eastern Airlines, which is an alliance partner of Qantas, have visited Perth to look at the possibility of starting daily flights from China’s financial centre Shanghai, the company’s base.
Yesterday China Eastern Australia manager Kathy Zhang told The West Australian the airline was “exploring the possibility of direct flight from Shanghai to Perth, which means it has not been decided yet”. But sources at Perth Airport say the likelihood is high that a service will be launched by the end of the year.
