The High Cost of Flying Solo

Claims that Bali Airport Charging too Much for Executive Jet Visits

(4/13/2014) The Indonesia National Air Carriers Association (INACA) is complaining that parking charges for private charter aircraft at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport are too high.
 
INILAH.Com quotes the secretary general of INACA, Tengku Burhanudin, who said on Monday, April 7, 2014, referring to the ground handler dealing with private aircraft in Bali who said:  “I don’t know if it is EkscuZ (the ground handler) who handles charters, we are raising the issue of the the high prices being charged. I have no idea if EkscuZ is a PMA (foreign investment company) or not."
 
Burhaddin’s comments were made during a meeting at the Indonesian Anti-Monopoly Commission (KPPU) in Jakarta.

The KPPU had summoned INACA to provide details regarding allegations of monopolistic practice by PT Angkasa Pura I in its partnership with EkscuZ.

Burhaddin denied having made a formal complaint with KPPU against PT Angkasa Pura,  adding: “This is the result of an investigation of reports in the news media. We have asked, ‘who reported Ekscuz’ and have been told that the investigation is based on an investigation started by KPPU in Surabaya based on reports in the media.”

At the same time Burhaddin did admit that the charges being applied against visiting charter aircraft were too high for services such as boarding steps, luggage handling, vehicles and use of the executive lounge.
