  • Sempati suspends services as losses mount and traffic falls

    News | 09 Jun 1998 23:00

    <p>Paul Lewis/SINGAPORE </p> <p>Indonesia's privately run Sempati Air Transport has suspended operations in the face of mounting financial losses, falling domestic traffic and after its shareholders failed to inject further capital into the business. </p> <p>Sempati's owners have said that, for now, the airline will not be liquidated and have promised to honour all its debts, which employees estimate to be in the region of 2-3 trillion rupiah ($170-260 million). A skeleton staff of around 50 people out of the 700 now employed will be retained to handle ticket reimbursements. </p> <p>Only three of the airline's five Boeing 737-200s were in operation and all five are being returned to local lessor PT Pann. At its peak, the airline operated a fleet of 25 aircraft, but escalating US dollar leasing charges as a result of Indonesia's currency crash forced Sempati to return its four A300B4s to Airbus and nine Fokker 70s and 100s to General Electric Capital Aviation Services and Fokker. </phttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Sempati-suspends-services-as-losses-mount-and-traffic-falls-38022/
