As reported in Kompas, the latest review of national airline safety issued by the Governments has determined not to increase the actual safety category rating of any national airline, despite an admission that actual scores have improved a number of air carriers.
In an announcement made by the Director General of Civil Aviation, Budhi Muliawan Suyitno, the Nation's aviation regulators confirmed that while improvements are being made in the areas of airline safety and security, none of the results warrant a change in category.
The only exception to the status quo in the latest safety review is that Adam Air has been taken off the list for violation of numerous safety regulations. As reported on Balidiscovery.com, the low-cost carrier Adam Air has halted all operations. [See: Adam Air Gets it Wings Clipped]
