| Accident investigation report completed and information captured
1 The flight crew appeared to have given preference to land at Changi Airport over diverting to Batam Airport where the weather was good.
2 The flight crew offered to perform an additional hold and an orbit despite informing SAC that they could only perform a single hold and would be down to minimum fuel.
3 The weather over Batam Airport started to deteriorate shortly after the flight crew decided to divert.
4 The flight crew did not realise that an autoland should not be performed on Runway 04 of Batam Airport in accordance with the operator’s procedures as information contained in the approach charts indicated that the heading for the final approach course of the localiser signal is 41°, a 1° offset from the runway heading.
5 The operator’s Batam Airport briefing document did not indicate that an autoland should not be performed on Runway 04 as the approach charts indicate that the localiser final course is offset from the runway heading even though such information is included in its airport briefing document of other airports.
6 The appearance of the “NO AUTOLAND” message on the PFD startled the PF who eventually decided to perform a go-around even though the flight crew were able to sight the Runway 04 as they were descending past 1,195 feet AGL.
7 The appearance of the “NO AUTOLAND” message, coupled with a low fuel situation, likely intensified the flight crew’s workload as they did not establish communication with Nadim Tower and did not realise that no landing clearance was given for their first attempt to land on Runway 04.
