More countries ban Indonesian airlines

Airlines from Indonesia could be banned from flying to another country, as fears over safety continue to mount.

Last month, the European Union banned all Indonesian airlines from flying to the continent after two serious crashes since the beginning of 2007.

Now, reports suggest that Saudi Arabia could also be planning to ban Indonesian planes from operating in the Middle Eastern country.

The BBC reports that Saudi aviation policy typically follows that of the EU.

However, because of the number of Indonesian people who regularly fly to Saudi Arabia, the transport ministry decided to conduct talks with Indonesia directly.

With no Indonesian carriers flying to Europe, there are fears that many tourists will be put off visiting the country, which has increasingly become a fashionable destination in recent years.

Many people in search of adventurous holidays travel to the south-east Asian island chain to climb the many active volcanoes.
