(1/20/2010) reports that the Ministry of Transportation will soon designate five airports as participants in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) "open skies" program commencing from 2013.

The Director General of Air Transportation, Herry Bakti S. Gumay, revealed that the five airports expected to be included in the program are: Soekarno-Hatta (Cengkareng) in Jakarta, Kuala Namu (Medan, North Sumatra), Ngurah Rai (Denpasar, Bali), Juanda (Surabaya) and Hasanuddin (Makassar, South Sulawesi).

Bakti said: "At the end of this month the draft decision of the Minister on 'open skies' will be finished. We will propose 5 airports for liberalization."

He went on to confirm that the five airports set for liberalization will be put forth at a meeting of ASEAN leaders in Vietnam to be held in April 2010 or at an ASEAN meeting to be held in Brunei Darussalam in October 2010. The five airports number among the 27 international airports operating in Indonesia.

In the past, Indonesia's Minister of Transportation, Freddy Numberi, has asked that the signing of the ASEAN "open skies" policy be delayed. Numberi cited national interest as his reason for asking the signing be delayed at least until the April 2010 meeting in Hanoi.
