Indonesian airports not ready for Open Sky Policy

Indonesian aviation observer Dudi Sudibyo recently stated Indonesia was not prepared for the implementation of the ASEAN Open Sky Policy in 2015 (The Jakarta Post, 07-Sep-2010). Five of the 26 international airports currently meet the standards for the Open Sky Policy. Mr Sudibyo added: “The Open Sky Policy is imminent but our airports are still facing many unnecessary problems like blackouts and radar failures. We are not ready for this agreement.”
