Soekarno-Hatta International Airport Conditioning Operations Accelerate Full Implementation of PSBB in Banten

13 Apr 2020

Jakarta - The Indonesian Minister of Health approved the implementation of Large Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) in three regions in Banten, namely Tangerang Regency, Tangerang City and South Tangeran City.
This is in accordance with the Decree of the Minister of Health of the Republic of Indonesia Number HK.01.07 / Menkes / 249/2020 concerning the Determination of CBFM in the Regency of Tangerang, Tangerang City, and South Tangerang City, Banten Province in the framework of the Acceleration of Handling COVID-19.
In line with that, PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) ensured that Soekarno-Hatta International Airport was very ready with the implementation of PSBB in Banten.
Even since April 1, 2020, Soekarno-Hatta had already carried out massive social restrictions by applying the Minimum Operation status to regulate passenger movement patterns so as to create optimal physical distancing at the airport.
Through Minimum Operation, Terminals 1B, 1C, and 2F are closed, and service to date has been carried out for 24 hours in Terminals 1A, 2D, 2E and throughout Terminal 3.
PT Angkasa Pura II President Director Muhammad Awaluddin said massive social restrictions in Soekarno-Hatta could help in the full implementation of PSBB in 3 areas in Banten.
"Soekarno-Hatta Airport is located in Tangerang Regency and Tangerang City. We are optimistic that by making operational adjustments to the Minimum Operation, Soekarno-Hatta Airport, which is also one of the largest centers of activity in Banten, can support the full implementation of PSBB in Banten."
"We will also coordinate intensively with the local government regarding the implementation of this PSBB," said PT Angkasa Pura II President Director Muhammad Awaluddin.
The Minimum Operation status also allows Soekarno-Hatta Airport to widely apply the concept of work from home (WFH) for employees. In total, there are 1,139 administrative and operational employees currently running WFH.
Soekarno-Hatta and Halim Perdanakusuma in the middle of the Jabodetabek PSBB
The Soekarno-Hatta operation, together with Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, is also very closely related to the implementation of PSBB in DKI Jakarta, 3 regions of Banten, as well as Bogor, Depok and Bekasi which have also been approved by the Minister of Health.
These two airports are the main airports and centers of activity for the Jabodetabek community.
"The role of Soekarno-Hatta and Halim Perdanakusuma is quite vital, which is a buffer of air transportation connectivity in Indonesia and the main airport and activity center for Jabodetabek residents."
"PT Angkasa Pura II has implemented social restrictions at these two airports so that they are integrated with PSBB in DKI Jakarta, Banten, Bogor, Depok and Bekasi. We apply the same rules and regulations, in order to support the local government in implementing PSBB in full, "explained Muhammad Awaluddin.
PT Angkasa Pura II and stakeholders at the airport also comply with the Minister of Transportation Regulation No. 18 of 2020 concerning Transportation Control in the Context of Preventing the Spread of COVID-19.
In accordance with Article 14 of the Minister of Transportation, it is stated that, among other things, airport slot time must be reduced and the number of airplane passengers is at most 50% of the total seating capacity by applying physical distancing.
"The slot time in Soekarno-Hatta and Halim Perdanakusuma has decreased, flight frequency has also been reduced, one of which is because the community fulfills the work from home and DKI Jakarta PSBB directives. PT Angkasa Pura II and the airline also ensure the maximum number of airplane passengers is 50% on each flight. "
"The number of passengers on public transportation such as buses and so on will also follow regulations, where the maximum number of passengers is 50% of capacity," said Muhammad Awaluddin.
In addition, personnel at the passenger terminal such as Aviation Security will also help implement PSBB, for example ensuring physical distancing between travelers / airport visitors and requesting that they always wear masks while at the airport.
The physical presence of the customer assistant officer at the passenger terminal is now abolished and converted to virtual services through video calls.
This service is called Virtual Customer Assistant (VICA) and can be accessed through the Indonesia Airports (INAirports) application on iOS and Android. The INAirports application itself is owned by PT Angkasa Pura II.
