Jakarta, IO – The governments of Indonesia and Singapore established Civil Military Coordination in Air Traffic Control (CMAC) following the Flight Information Region (FIR) realignment agreement signed in early 2022.

Chief of the Air Staff (KSAU) Air Chief Marshal Fadjar Prasetyo said CMAC is important to prevent violation of sovereign territory between the two countries. According to him, the cooperation will ensure safe and uninterrupted flights, for both military and civilian aircrafts passing through Indonesian territory.
