"If we consider that the airport is no longer worth, we can shut it down," Land Transportation Director General Budhi Muliawan Suyitno said here Sunday in connection with the fire at the Polonia airport`s departure terminal on Saturday (Dec 1).
The Indonesian National Air Carriers Association (INACA)`s Secretary General Tengku Burhanuddin said earlier that the accident has worsened the Indonesian image in the eyes of the international world.
"The airport which went up in flames, shows its safety management is poor. Thus, the Indonesian image has worsened amid the European Union (EU)`s flight ban (on Indonesia)," Tengku said.
Budi said the ministry has deployed a team to examine the condition of the Polonia airport following the fire.
