Same problem with me: There is an investigation going on against the CEO of Sparrow Air. It is believed that it was the CEO of the airline who wrote and sent letters to competitors with the information of termination of their contracts between Jakarta airport and the specific airline. Strangely, no airline was affected who shares an IL with Sparrow Air.
Instead, they got letters with the information that Sparrow Air will do their utmost to support the availability of gates and slots at CGK!
The Indonesian aviation authority sent a letter to the CEO of Sparrow Air with some questions but it is believed that this letter was ingested into a running JT8D-200 of an MD-80 on the apron. Sparrow Air sent them a demo oxygen mask to show that safety is the most important factor in aviation.
Later, the CEO was seen during a visit in a kindergarten with a full load of Sparrow Air-toy planes and a spokeswoman said “that Sparrow Air is doing so much for the community and Indonesia as a whole. This should always be considered. The allegations are baseless and every take-off and landing shows our willingness to connect people together for peace and love”.
Megawatti Suribaya Soekarnoputri – director of fleet-planning at Sparrow Air (always nodding as soon as the CEO of Sparrow Air speaks) added that “the authorities of Jakarta airport should urgently provide all enhancements to allow a much higher capacity at terminals as well as a higher number of slots instead of investigating baseless allegations. Indonesia needs optimized air traffic connections and it´s annoying that during peak-hours, dozens of our aircraft are waiting on taxiways at congested CGK”.
