The ATSB is investigating a flight below minimum altitude involving a Boeing 737-800, registered PK-LDK, about 19 km south of Canberra Airport, Australian Capital Territory, on 14 June 2024. The aircraft was operated by Batik Air as flight ID 6015, scheduled from Denpasar, Indonesia to Canberra.

During an instrument landing system approach into Canberra, the crew elected to hold at the waypoint MOMBI. During the holding, the aircraft was operated below the minimum holding altitude.

The ATSB has commenced the examination and analysis of the initial evidence collected.

To date, the ATSB investigation has included:

  • interviewing the flight crew and air traffic controller
  • analysis of recorded flight data and air traffic surveillance data
  • examination of pilot and operational records
  • obtaining operator procedures and operational documentation.

A final report will be released at the conclusion of the investigation. Should a critical safety issue be identified during the course of the investigation, the ATSB will immediately notify relevant parties, so that appropriate safety action can be taken.
