The group said the 84 hourly take-offs and landings were beyond the airport's handling capacity, and claimed that it also violates Transportation Ministerial Instruction No. 8/2016, which caps the use of the airport's runways at 72 aircraft per hour and four irregular flights for emergencies.

 Soekarno-Hatta is one of the region's busiest airports, serving more than 55 million passengers last year, with 1,200 flights daily.
