Governor of Papua, Lukas Enembe - JubiJayapura, Jubi – Papua Governor Lukas Enembe urged airlines flying above mountainous areas of Papua to obey the rules including those on data of passengers.

“Up to now Papua province is awaiting the evacuation process done by combined team of TNI / Police and the National Search and Rescue Agency (Basernas). We hope this team will do data verification both flight’s manifest and victims who were on the plane,” Lukas Enembe said in Jayapura, on Tuesday (18/8/ 2015).

According to him, all flight companies that serve in Papua should have valid data of their passengers.
“This incident would be a reminder for all flights in Papua to not repeat this message,” he said.

In addition, governor demanded all flights that serve in Mountains region of Papua to fly before 15.00 p.m because the weather in the afternoon is not good for flying.
“Trigana ATR aircraft flew in the afternoon that actually was not right,” Enembe added.
