March 2007: The Indonesian government announced a ban on commercial airplanes older than 10 years following several mishaps and accidents, the worst of which was the January 2007 crash of a 17-year-old Adam Air (DHI) 737-400 that killed 102. According to the "Associated Press," Transport Minister Hatta Rajasa insisted the regulation would not require parliamentary approval, but did not indicate when it would go into effect. The current age limit is 20 years. Adam Air (DHI) announced last month, that it intended to lease 6 A320s and build up a fleet of 30 of the type "over the next 5 years," replacing the 737s it now operates. New airplanes will be both leased and purchased.
April 2007: The USA (FAA) announced that Indonesia "does not comply with international safety standards set by (ICAO)" and lowered the country's safety rating to Category 2, ruling that it is "no longer overseeing the safety of its airlines in accordance with international standards." The USA State Dept issued its own statement saying that last month's safety assessment conducted by the Indonesian Directorate General of Civil Aviation did not include "detailed methodology supporting the ratings" and that "Americans traveling to and from Indonesia should fly directly to their destinations on international carriers from countries whose civil aviation authorities meet international aviation safety standards."
July 2007: Indonesia and (ICAO) signed a "groundbreaking declaration" in Bali under which Indonesia committed to wide-ranging initiatives to improve the safety of its civil aviation system. The deal comes after the European Union (EU) banned all Indonesian airlines from flying into its airspace. Indonesia will restructure the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, enact the required legal framework for it effectively to meet international safety obligations, ensure the required human and financial resources and correct deficiencies identified by (ICAO)'s Universal Safety Oversight Audit Program and other internal or external audits. (ICAO) said, "Indonesia will also implement a proactive and systemic management of safety to comply, in a verifiable manner, with national requirements and (ICAO) international safety standards and industry best practices. This includes a commitment by government authorities and the local air transport industry to foster transparency and the sharing of safety-related data to support the safety management process, under guidelines established by (ICAO)."
September 2007: 727-225 (2559, PK-), Asia Fortis Aerospace leased, ex-(5N-BEU).
November 2007: The European Commission (EC) issued the 6th update of its airline blacklist, removing Suriname's Blue Wing Airlines and lifting the operating restrictions imposed on Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). Both carriers, however, will remain subject to prioritized ramp inspections at Community airports in order to ensure their "consistent adherence" to relevant safety standards. "This latest revision shows that when airlines take rapid and sound corrective action to comply with safety standards, they can be withdrawn from the list quickly," (EC) VP Transport, Jacques Barrot noted. "It also shows that the list increasingly serves as a preemptive, rather than punitive tool for safeguarding aviation safety." He added that relevant oversight authorities verified measures taken by (PIA) and Blue Wing Airlines and "that these measures provide for long-lasting sustainable solutions to avoid the same problems recurring in the future."
The blacklist now comprises 8 individual carriers including (TAAG) Angola Airlines (ANG), Mahan Air (MHN), and Ukrainian Mediterranean Airlines (UM Air - (UKM)), whose operations are fully banned in the (EU). Also banned are all airlines from Equatorial Guinea (ECV), Indonesia: (AWR); (BLN); (BTV); (DHI); (FES); (GIA); (KTK); (LKW); (MLI); (MND); (NOK); (PNM); (PTF); (REX); (SJA); (TGN); (TMG); (WON); (XPR); Kyrgyzstan: (ITL); (KYR); (PHG); (PHX); (STZ); Liberia: (LBG); Sierra Leone: (ORG); (RUM); (UVL); Swaziland: (AFC); and Democratic Republic of Congo: (TCS); (WDA); & (WET) with the exception of Hewa Bora Airways (EXD), which is subject to operating restrictions). Operational restrictions were placed on Air Bangladesh (BGD) and Air Service Comores (COM).
July 2008: The 8th edition of the European Commission (EC)'s blacklist of banned airlines does not include Iran's Mahan Airlines (MHN), thanks to "significant efforts and progress accomplished by this carrier, which were verified during an on-site inspection," but continues to include Indonesian airlines, including Garuda Indonesia (GIA). "The Commission (EC) decided that the Indonesian authorities have still not developed and implemented an efficient oversight program on any of the carriers under their regulatory control," it said. Ukraine Cargo Airways remains banned as well, and Yemenia Airways (YEM) was told it "should complete its corrective actions plan" by the Air Safety Committee's next meeting. All airlines from Equatorial Guinea, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Swaziland, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo are banned, while Gabon Airlines and Afrijet (FRJ) from Gabon are allowed to maintain operations at their current level.
August 2008: Indonesia's economy grew +6% (year/year) in the 2nd quarter (Q2).
November 2008: The European Commission (EC) added some other airlines to its list of airlines banned from flying into the European Union (EU). Regarding the Philippines, the (EC) said it "intends to carry out with member states a safety assessment of the Philippine civil aviation authorities in early 2009."
April 2009: Indonesia's Ministry of Transportation said all airlines based in the country will be required to operate at least 10 airplanes (each) by 2012, at least 5 of which must be owned. "If not, they will have to shut down or merge with other airlines to meet the quota," a ministry spokesperson told reporters. The rule change (currently Indonesian carriers only have to own 2 airplanes) is driven by safety concerns. "We want airlines to be financially sound and committed to giving the best in terms of service and safety," the spokesperson said, according to "Agence France Presse."
July 2009: Iran's Mahan Air (MHN) was added to the (EU)'s list of banned airlines, while Garuda Indonesia (GIA), Airfast Indonesia (PTF), Mandala Airlines (MND) and Premiair were removed from the "blacklist." The latest update did not include Yemenia Yemen Airways (YEM), despite recent controversy following the June 29 A310-300 crash that killed 152 passengers and crew. All airlines from Zambia and Kazakhstan were added to the list with the exception of Air Astana (AKZ), which will be allowed limited access to (EU) nations.
(TAAG) Angola Airlines (ANG), already on the list of >200 carriers, will be allowed to operate "into Portugal only with certain airplanes and under very strict conditions," the European Commission (EC) said, adding that the limited access was granted to acknowledge "progress made by the civil aviation authority of Angola [and (TAAG) (ANG)] to resolve progressively any safety deficiencies." All other Angolan airlines remain banned. All Indonesian carriers remain banned apart from the aforementioned 4. Complete bans are in place on airlines from Benin, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Swaziland.
European Commission VP Transport Antonio Tajani has called for a global blacklist, a suggestion that has been rejected by (ICAO) for now. "We will not accept that airlines fly at different standards when they operate inside and outside Europe," he said, renewing his call. "It is high time that the international community rethinks its safety policy; those airlines which are unsafe should not be allowed to fly anywhere."
September 2010: Trigana Air Service (TGN) operates domestic scheduled and charter passenger jet airplane services.
(ICAO) Code: TGN - (Callsign - TRIGANA).
Main Base: Jakarta Halim Perdanakusama airport (HLP).
737-228 (23007, PK-YSA), delivery ex-(PK-MBZ).
May 2014: (GE) Capital Aviation Services Limited (GECAS) (GEF) announced delivery of a leased Boeing 737-300SF freighter airplane to a new airline customer, PT Trigana Air (TGN) Service.
Indonesia’s Trigana Air (TGN) will use the airplane to expand its fleet. (TGN) currently operates a fleet of nearly 20 passenger and freighter airplanes to >20 destinations in Indonesia.
August 2015: ACCDT: The wreckage of the Trigana Air Services (TGN) 267 ATR42-300 that went missing August 16 has been found on the slopes of Mount Tangok. This is near Oksibil in Ogbape district, Indonesian Papua province.
Indonesian President, Joko Widodo reported via Twitter: “Locals have informed us that the flight crashed on to Mount Tangok.” Widodo cited a report from the Indonesian Ministry of Transport for the information, adding that army plus police rescue and evacuation teams were trying to gain access to the remote, jungle crash site.
The head of the Papuan branch of Indonesia's National Search and Rescue Agency (BASARNAS), Ludi, said the wreckage was found at camp three in the Ogbape district of the Bingang mountain district.
The aircraft, carrying 49 passengers and 5 crew, was on a domestic flight between Jayapura-Sentani Airport and Oksibil Airport in Indonesia on August 16 when it lost contact with air traffic control (ATC) over the remote eastern Papua region, near the border with Papua New Guinea.
The aircraft passenger manifest listed 44 adult passengers, 5 crew, 2 children and 3 babies, according to (BASARNAS).
Trigana (TGN) Director of Operations Beny Sumaryanto said weather conditions in the area at the time were possibly a contributory cause of the crash. “We strongly suspect it’s a weather issue; it is currently very bad there. It’s very dark and cloudy and [also] not conducive for a search,” he said.
Oksibil Airport, mainly used for transporting mining and extracting passengers and cargo into the remote settlement, saw a fatal accident in 2009, when a Merpati Nusantara DHC-6 crashed prior to approach.
All 16 passengers and crew were killed, and an Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee report cited the lack of ground-based navigation aids, poor weather information and “marginal visual meteorological conditions” as contributory causes.
(TGN) operates 6 ATR42-300s, with an average age of 26 years.
Later, search teams recovered the flight recorders of the Trigana Air Services (TGN) ATR42-300 that crashed in Indonesia’s Papua province on August 16. Indonesia’s National Search & Rescue Agency (BASARNAS) confirmed to local media outlets the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder were found in good condition. (BASARNAS) also confirmed there were no survivors.
The aircraft, carrying 49 passengers and 5 crew, was on a domestic flight between Jayapura-Sentani Airport and Oksibil Airport in Indonesia, when it lost contact with air traffic control over the remote eastern Papua region, near the border with Papua New Guinea.
Note: TRIGANA AIR SERVICE (TGN) is listed on the latest (EU) blacklist released 03.04.2012 of airlines whose operations are subject to a ban within the (EU)*. *Airlines listed in Annex A could be permitted to exercise traffic rights by using wet-leased airplanes of an air carrier which is not subject to an operating ban, provided that the relevant safety standards are complied with.
