Every country certainly has different rules or regulations in making a policy. It is the same as the making of regulations on a flight, especially between Indonesia and Thailand. According to many parties, Thailand is considered to be more caring than others and will be willing to intervene directly if there is an airline company that getting rejection when they requesting the route permission to go to a certain country.
“The Thai government gives full support to the airline company. If there are problems that occur in the company, then the parties concerned will be called first to provide an explanation, they are not immediately given a sentence. Even when there was an incident with Thai Lion route to Yangoon, Myanmar was rejected, the Thai government then helped to ask the reason behind the rejection.” said Thai Lion Air Managing Director Captain Darsito Hendroseputro, who was told to some of journalists from Jakarta when get interviewed at his office in Don Mueang, Bangkok.
Differences In Handling The Airline’s Problems
But unlike in Indonesia, Darsito continued, when in Indonesia, no matter how small the error was made by the airline, it would be immediately get punished. In fact, the government should have asked for more detail about what problems actually occur within the airline itself.
“They (Thailand) gave us the opportunity to givean explanation, but if in Indonesia they were not even given the opportunity to make an explanation, and were immediately given a penalty,” said Darsito, who was a former pilot in the Navy in his time.
