The Indonesian-language Bisnis Indonesia reports that Indonesia's Department of Transportation will undertake a complete audit of Adam Air and a number of other national carriers who have suffered mishaps in recent months.

Following a series of incidents, including the recent loss of an aircraft claiming the lives of 102 passengers ([See: Flight KI-574 Where are You?]) and an earlier aircraft going astray and landing some 800 miles away from its planned destination ([See: Adam Air Offers Surprise Bonus Destinations]), the award-winning low price airline has come under increasingly severe safety scrutiny by both the Government and the flying public.

According to Yurlis Hasibun, the Director of the Airworthiness Certification Directorate at the Department of Transportation, the extraordinary audit planned for March 2007 will review all national carriers who have experienced accidents. "Audits are usually done once every two years, but because of the Adam Air crash, the audits have been moved up for March."

Each audit will involve 6 inspectors from the Airworthiness Directorate and is expected to require two weeks to complete. The audit, comprised of 34 subsections, will address both flight operations and general airworthiness, touching on all aspects of passenger safety.

Hasibun told the press that any aircraft that fails to pass the audit will be grounded by the Government until the safety deficits are addressed. Additionally, if the management of the airline fails to pass the safety audit a deadline of 6 months will be given to correct any managerial shortcomings or face closure.
