Indonesia`s transport ministry had received a letter from Saudi Arabia`s General Authority on Civil Aviation (GACA), warning of a possible ban since the body normally followed EU aviation policy. Because of strong ties between both countries GACA suggested a meeting to explore options and for Indonesia to explain the safety situation.
Every year nearly half a million Indonesians travel to Saudi Arabia, mostly to perform the Muslim haj pilgrimage. (Reuters)
