The Lion Air Group, which includes Batik Air and Wings Air, gradually began rebuilding short-haul air routes from May 10. However, the recovered aircraft did not last long.
The agency announced that all routes have again been suspended until June 5 due to widespread problems with coronavirus regulations regarding social distance and health disclosures that passengers have not properly observed.
While announcing the decision, Lion Air noted concerns for the health of staff in particular, especially the risk of coronavirus contractions from cabin crew passengers.
“Lion Air Group supports the government in its efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19 through active participation in the implementation of the health protocols established by the Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Health and the Task Force,” the organization said in a statement on June 3.
So far, there is no word on when these planes will be rescheduled. Lion Air is already refunding passengers who have booked their tickets, but is not allowing anyone to make new reservations for the time being.
