Jakarta - Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi appreciates stakeholders at Soekarno-Hatta Airport in line with the smooth and good implementation of the provisions for eliminating homecoming since May 6, 2021 at the largest airport in Indonesia.

The Minister of Transportation visited Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport today, Tuesday, May 11, 2021.

Stakeholders at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, said the Minister of Transportation, were able to coordinate and carry out their duties properly to ensure the elimination of homecoming and provide services to travelers who are exempted from travel restrictions.

"I reviewed several places [at Soekarno-Hatta Airport], the process of obtaining flight permits for passengers who are exempted [from travel restrictions] is quite good. Good coordination between AP II [the manager of Soekarno-Hatta Airport], Garuda, Citilink, the COVID-19 Handling Task Force, KKP [Port Health Office of the Ministry of Health] went well. I appreciate colleagues doing well, ”explained the Minister of Transportation.

As is well known, the period of eliminating homecoming is set for 6-17 May 2021. In that period, travelers who are exempted from the prohibition of cross-city / regency / provincial / state travel are travelers with urgent needs for nomudic purposes.

These urgent needs are: work / official travel, visits from sick families, visits from grief of deceased family members, pregnant women who are accompanied by one family member and the interests of childbirth accompanied by a maximum of two people.

"We see that during the period of eliminating homecoming from May 6 there has been a significant reduction in passengers of approximately 90%, now [in the midst of eliminating homecoming] an average of 7,000 - 8,000 passengers per day," said the Minister of Transportation.

The Minister of Transportation emphasized that stakeholders at Soekarno-Hatta Airport should remain alert to maintain health protocols and procedures established for both departing and arriving aircraft passengers.

AP II President Director Muhammad Awaluddin said stakeholders at Soekarno-Hatta Airport always strive to improve coordination to ensure all procedures run well.

"In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, flight procedures are very dynamic in view of the existing conditions. Good synergy among stakeholders makes AP II airports able to fulfill every requirement and procedure, including the period of eliminating homecoming from 6 to 17 May. "

"All stakeholders at AP II airports strive so that the aviation sector in its capacity as a mode of mass transportation can always contribute to various activities, including prevention of COVID-19 and national economic recovery. As we all know, Indonesia is an archipelagic country and the most effective mode of transportation in reaching the islands of Indonesia is airplanes, "said Muhammad Awaluddin.

The close coordination among stakeholders at AP II airports is also supported by technological infrastructure.

At Soekarno-Hatta Airport, the Airport Operation Control Center (AOCC) building has been activated, which is equipped with modern equipment as a coordination forum for all stakeholders.

In addition, Soekarno-Hatta Airport has also implemented the Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) concept to optimize aircraft movements. The A-CDM can improve flight predictability and optimize operations.

"Through the implementation of AOCC and A-ACDM, stakeholder collaboration is getting closer and makes Soekarno-Hatta Airport able to operate resiliently, in the sense of being able to quickly adapt to the dynamic procedures in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic," said Muhammad Awaluddin.
