Indonesia’s Star Air has halted all operations, citing high fuel prices. The carrier says it may eventually operate again but for now its grounding is considered indefinite. It was one of many new airlines to launch in Indonesia in recent years following the government’s call for more competition, although there have been several failures. Another Indonesian carrier, Pelita Air Service, has terminated early its leases on four Fokker 100s and is said to be returning to charter operations rather than offering scheduled services.
