Ahmad Yani airportThe transport minister of Indonesia Ignasius Jonan said that the inclusion of airport tax or passenger service charge (PSC) in ticket price will take two months to implement.


The minister stated that starting January 1, 2015, all airlines must include airport tax in ticket price with transition period until March 1, 2015in the Ahmad Yani airport, the Tanjung Emas harbor and Tawang Railway station in Semarang.


The transition period is needed because some tickets have been sold before the inclusion of airport tax in the tickets was announced, he stated, adding probably passengers bought the tickets 90 days or four months prior to this announcement.


He said that the transition period is until March 1, 2015. If any airlines violate rules, he threatened removing its operating license.


Previously, Jonan had asked all airlines in the country to include airport tax or passenger service charge with the tickets in effort to ease passenger services.


He said that all airlines will have to be aware of the rules; PSC is only a matter of information and technology. If airlines refused to include the fee then they will have to be forced to implement this rule. If airport taxes are separated from the ticket prices then the passengers will feel burdened he felt.
