Recently, the Indonesian government decided to raise the airfare price ceiling by ten percent in an effort to support local airlines. This measure is required as Indonesian airlines face financial difficulties due to the depreciating rupiah exchange rate and higher global fuel (avtur) price. However, airlines have become worried as the government also decided to remove its fuel surcharge policy (that was implemented in February 2014). This fuel surcharge also aimed at supporting local airlines amid rising fuel costs.
