It's about time if not overdue isn't it?

http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/asiapcf/03/18/indonesia.airline.ap/

Quoting CNN:
Accident-plagued Indonesian low-cost carrier Adam Air will no longer be allowed to fly, after its government acted over concerns for safety. The carrier -- on the verge of bankruptcy after two of its largest shareholders announced plans to pull out of the beleaguered company -- has suffered a string of incidents in the last year.

Quoting WSJ:
Indonesia's government banned PT Adam Skyconnection Airlines from flying as of midnight Tuesday due to a slew of safety concerns and gave the carrier three months to improve or face the revocation of its operating license.

Didn't Adam Air announce an intent to buy Airbus airplanes a few weeks ago or do I have the wrong Indonesian airline?

Here here! About time that someone threw the book at them!

It was Adam Air but I read here a few weeks ago that this announcement was nothing more that a PR stunt to make it seem that they where taking action to replace their old and dangerous fleet. Apparently there was no firm order.

Let's hope that the safety and corruption problems that plague Indonesian transport get better, and this seems to be the first step??

Errr... that was more like 1.5 years ago... and Adam Air already stated their "disappointment" at Airbus last year...

Anyways, already discussed in:

More Indonesia Stories:

Indonesia's Adam Air banned from flying
Indonesia's Adam Air facing debt crisis
Indonesia's ex-president plans to run for post again
The Indonesian budget airline, Adam Air, says a leasing firm has seized more than half its fleet after the airline defaulted on its payments.

Adam Air, which like all other Indonesian airlines has been banned by the European Union because of safety concerns, has been forced to cancel several scheduled flights, because of a lack of aircraft.

It says out of 22 planes, only 10 are available because 12 of them have been declared in default.

It says the other 10 have been declared in default as well, but a way to keep them flying is being negotiated.

http://www.abc.net.au/ra/news/stories/200803/s2192111.htm

so what do Adam Air have left ?

Must be good news for other Indo airlines like Lion Air who want to expand to Australia etc.

With wrold recession just around the corner, what's going to happen to Adam Air fleet, will most of it end up in Africa & south America?

couldn't find their fleet details ???
