"Special facilities for Indonesian migrant workers will be available at the airports of PT Angkasa Pura II, especially those that become pockets for the departure and return of migrant workers, such as Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. Indonesian migrant workers are heroes of foreign exchange. It is fitting that we provide full support at the airport for migrant workers, ”said Muhammad Awaluddin.
Muhammad Awaluddin said the special facilities to be discussed in line with the signing of the MoU were:
1. Special route facilities in order to provide a smooth return and departure for immigrant workers.

"We will coordinate with other stakeholders at the airport such as Immigration, Quarantine and Customs Office to present these special facilities. Apart from the five facilities, PT Angkasa Pura II and BP2MI will also discuss further about the possibility of other facilities for migrant workers while at the airport, "explained Muhammad Awaluddin.
In the same place, Head of BP2MI Benny Rhamdani said Indonesian migrant workers are heroes who have contributed foreign exchange in the form of remittances up to IDR 159 trillion in 2019.
"So it is appropriate for Indonesian migrant workers to be treated as citizens with VIP service. This special service is part of our efforts to provide VIP services. "
"Thank you President Jokowi, thank you Minister of BUMN, thank you PT Angkasa Pura II. We hope this special facility is not only at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, but also in other departure and arrival pockets such as at Kualanamu Airport, Kertajati Airport and other international airports, ”explained Benny Rhamdani.
