Saudis to Ban RI airlines - 18 Jul 07 14:26

The Indonesian Transportation Ministry received a letter on Monday from Saudi Arabia's General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) signed on Sunday by GACA vice president of safety and regulation Mohammed R. Berenji stating that the kingdom planned to adopt the same flight/airline ban that the EU put into effect for all Indonesian airlines two weeks ago.

Garuda Indonesia is the only Indonesian airline with routes to Saudi Arabia. Garuda spokesman Pujobroto said the airline flew to Jeddah 5 times a week and to Riyadh 3 times a week.
