This new procedure can also be carried out because of intensive coordination from all airport stakeholders such as the Port Health Office, TNI & Polri, airport authorities, airlines, and other parties, "Muhamad Wasid said.
At the busiest airport in Indonesia, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, new procedures have also been implemented for passengers on domestic flight flights during the prohibited Eid al-Fitr period 1441 H.

Second, at the post the prospective passenger must show the travel documents such as flight tickets, identification, COVID-19 free certificate, travel certificate, and other documents that must be met in accordance with SE No. 4/2020.
Third, still at the same post prospective aircraft passengers are required to fill out a health alert card (Health Alert Card / HAC) and an epidemiological investigation form provided by KKP personnel.
Fourth, if all the files are complete and the HAC and epidemiology forms have been filled out, then the prospective passenger goes to the second examination table. On the examination table, all files were re-checked as were HACs and epidemiological investigation forms, by KKP personnel. After being declared complete, prospective passengers will receive a clearance letter from the KKP personnel.
Fifth, armed with a letter of clearance and all the documents, the prospective passenger then goes to the check-in counter to get a boarding pass.
