Response to Media Queries on Singapore Airlines’ Cancellation of Five Weekly Services to Jakarta

21 November 2016

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is aware that Singapore Airlines will be reducing its weekly services on the Singapore-Jakarta route from 63 to 58 with effect from 1 December 2016, due to the requirements of the Indonesian civil aviation authorities. Singapore Airlines has been operating 63 services per week on this route since July 2013.

The Indonesian civil aviation authorities have cited runway maintenance works at Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport as the reason. CAAS hopes that the runway maintenance works will be completed expeditiously and that the impact on airlines will be fairly distributed.

CAAS also hopes that the Indonesian civil aviation authorities will be able to allow Singapore Airlines to resume all 63 weekly services to Jakarta as soon as possible to reduce the impact on business travellers and tourists, who rely heavily on air services to travel between Singapore and Jakarta.
