A van crashed on an Indonesian airline Batik Air plane on Saturday (3) at Jakarta Soekarno Hatta International Airport in the city of Jakarta, Indonesia. The aircraft was being parked at the time of the accident.
The country’s General Director of Civil Aviation, Budi Praytno, did not mention whether the vehicle, used to transport executive passengers to the aircraft on the runway, had people on board, nor did he explain the chronology of the facts.
Despite this, public policy observer Agus Pambagyo wrote in a post posted on Saturday in his profile on Instagram that the reason for the accident would have been an “oversight” of the plane.
“There is only one cause, Batik Air’s careless handling on the ground,” he said. “With the number of accidents and incidents from 2020 so far, flights from Indonesia could be banned again by the European Union and the United States in 2007-2016.”
The case is being investigated by the Indonesian Ministry of Transport, which, as of 10 am on Monday (5), had not released any further information about the case.
