09 May 2021

All airports remain fully alert for unscheduled flights outside of operating hours

Jakarta - The government will impose provisions to eliminate homecoming on May 6-17, 2021 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

During this period, all trips with the aim of going home are not allowed. Meanwhile, according to the COVID-19 Handling Task Force Circular Number 13 of 2021, the prohibition on cross-city / regency / provincial / state travel is exempted for travelers with urgent needs for non-travelers, namely: work / official travel; sick family visits; visits of bereaved family members; pregnant women who are accompanied by 1 family member, and the interests of accompanying childbirth are a maximum of 2 people.

In line with the elimination of this homecoming, taking into account the trend of aircraft passenger movements and flight frequencies, PT Angkasa Pura II airports have made adjustments to operating hours.

"During the period of eliminating homecoming, flight traffic fell by around 90% in line with the compliance with the provisions of the elimination of homecoming by the community. The provision of eliminating homecoming is effective at AP II airport, and we have adjusted the operating hours at 16 airports so that they can continue to operate optimally in support of the provisions for eliminating homecoming while maintaining Indonesia's air connectivity, "said President Director of AP II Muhammad Awaluddin.

Muhammad Awaluddin added, "The adjustment of operating hours at 16 AP II airports is coordinated with all stakeholders and has been approved in line with the issuance of a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) for airports that make adjustments to operating hours.
