The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has outlined several priority measures to improve Indonesia's aviation industry.

The measures include safety, cost-efficiency, effective infrastructure management and environmental sustainability as key priorities.

IATA has recommended that the Indonesian Government adopt the IATA operational safety audit to ensure best practice in operational safety.

It has also asked the government to plan and implement the next stage of Jakarta's airport infrastructure development to cope with predicted passenger traffic increases.

Passenger numbers have already exceeded 36.5 million and the government has predicted 10% annual growth.

IATA director general and CEO Giovanni Bisignani has also encouraged the Indonesian Government to support an aggressive and responsible approach to climate change.
