T A N G E R A N G – April 22, 2023. Lion Air (JT flight code) member of Lion Air Group always improves the implementation of ramp checks as a thorough aircraft inspection process before or after the flight. Lion Air conducts ramp checks to ensure that the aircraft is in a safe condition and ready to fly. This is very important in meeting the safety aspects of passengers and crew.


Time for ramp check:

1. Before flight (Pre-flight check)

At this time, checks are carried out before the aircraft departs for the next flight route. As a result, the aircraft was declared safe and fit for operation (airworthy for flight).

2. After the flight  (Post-flight check)

At this time, checks are carried out after the aircraft has landed and passengers have disembarked from the plane. This check aims to ensure that the aircraft is in good condition after flying and meets safety standards.

3. Periodic checks (Scheduled check)

Checks are carried out periodically according to government regulations or airline policies. This procedure is carried out to ensure that the aircraft is always in good condition and prioritizes the necessary safety standards.


During the return and homecoming flow of the Eid al-Fitr season, the number of passengers traveling increases. Therefore, Lion Air must guarantee that the aircraft is able to accommodate a larger number of passengers than usual. 


Ramp checks are required to meet regulatory regulations and strict aviation safety standards. Lion Air complies with the rules set by aviation authorities in prioritizing that the aircraft meets safety standards.


Aircraft inspection procedures carried out before or after the flight, among others:

1. Exterior Check

Exterior inspection includes checking every part of the exterior of the aircraft, ranging from the fuselage, wings, engines, wheels, cockpit glass, lights and others. Checks are carried out to ensure that there is no damage to the aircraft and that all components are functioning properly.

2. Interior Check

Interior inspection includes checking all cabins, cockpits, galleys, lavatory, luggage storage rooms, and cargo.  Checks are carried out to ensure that all systems and equipment are in good condition and ready to use.

3. Refueling

Aircraft are refueled based on the amount required for flight. Checks are also carried out on the fuel pump and the fuel tank is functioning normally.

4. Cargo loading

Checks are carried out to ensure that all cargo has been loaded correctly and in accordance with aviation safety requirements. In addition, checks are carried out on the cargo loading system, such as cargo door locks, so that everything is in good condition and safe.

5. Document check

All documents, such as flight log books, technical documents and other documents are checked in order to guarantee they are complete and in accordance with aviation regulatory requirements.

6. Pilot and crew inspection

Checks are made on the flight crew and technicians to ensure that all are in good health and ready to carry out duties.


After all inspections are completed, the airline will make a report on the results of the ramp check. If any problems are found, corrective action will be taken before the aircraft makes flight. By conducting ramp checks regularly, Lion Air can ensure that the aircraft is in good condition and ready to fly safely and comfortably.
