While the Ministry of Transportation has named Lion Air and Sriwijaya Air as the Indonesian airlines with the worst on-time performance, the Ministry has now designated the state-owned airline Merpati Nusantara as the carrier most likely to cancel a flight.

The statistics counting performance between January-November 2011 showed the following carriers, in order of appearance, as most likely to cancel a flight

  • Merpati Nusantara 9.2% cancellation rat
  • Sriwijaya Air 4.11% cancellation rate
  • Lion Air 0.73% cancellation rate
  • Garuda Indonesia 0.82% cancellation rate
  • Batavia Air 0.54% cancellation rate
  • AirAsia (Indonesia) 0.16% cancellation rate
The Corporate Secretary for Merpati Nusantara, Imam Turyadi, told Bisnis Indonesia that the high cancellation rates for flights by his airline do not aversely impact the public. “If Merpati cancels a flight the passengers are moved to another airline if there is another airline serving that route,” explained Imam.

He continued to explain that when there is not an alternative flight operated by a competing carrier, the Merpati passengers are moved to the same flight on a subsequent day.

Imam blamed the cancellations on technical operation issues and bad weather, with poor weather in eastern Indonesia causing many flights to be cancelled.
