❏ IMPORTANT INFORMATION
At the end of that post (linked above) the announcements concerning arrangements for immediate provisions for passengers scheduled to fly with Batavia Air today Thursday 31 January are outlined.
That information is posted on the main Indonesian forum for reasons of clarity and accessibility across Indonesia. This matter is of course not limited the region this message is posted in.
Fortunately Batavia management appears to have anticipated this outcome and consulted earlier with other carriers in anticipation of a negative outcome in the Central Jakarta Commercial Court today.
