Period 19 - 21 September, 4,011 passengers underwent PCR tests
Jakarta - Soekarno-Hatta Airport applies the provisions in the Circular Letter of the Ministry of Transportation Number 77/2021 which is an amendment to the SE of the Ministry of Transportation Number 74/2021.
Based on the SE, one of the conditions that must be met by all passengers from abroad is to undergo a COVID-19 test, namely the isothermal molecular test (NAAT/other types) at the arrival airport, the results of which can be issued in a maximum of 1 hour or the RT-PCR test.
This provision has been implemented properly at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, where all passengers from abroad who have just landed immediately undergo a PCR test at Terminal 3 before processing immigration to enter Indonesian territory.
President Director of PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) Muhammad Awaluddin said the PCR implementation for passengers from abroad went smoothly because of the close collaboration between stakeholders at Soekarno-Hatta Airport.
"AP II as the airport operator is grateful for the support of stakeholders, namely the Airport Authority Region I, the Ministry of Health KKP, airlines, ground handling, the Air Task Force for COVID-19 Handling, the Police, and of course all international aircraft passengers, so that together we are able to carry out our obligations. PCR in the international arrivals area of Terminal 3 Soekarno-Hatta Airport is going well," said Muhammad Awaluddin.
The laboratory providing PCR test services at Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport also has equipment to carry out Molecular Rapid Tests using the Real Time RT-PCR method, where this method has been approved in accordance with the Decree of the Ministry of Transportation Number 77/2021.
"With the results being known for a maximum of 1 hour, this greatly helps the test process where the flow of international arrivals can remain smooth and passengers who have just landed don't have to wait too long to wait for the test results," said Muhammad Awaluddin.
AP II together with stakeholders also arranged flight slots, aircraft parking stands, arrival gates, and holding bays for international passengers before conducting the PCR test.
All passengers are tested
From the first day to the third day (September 19 - September 21, 2021), PCR tests have been carried out on all international passengers who landed at Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport, totaling 4,011 passengers.
"The number of airplane passengers from abroad is 4,011 passengers and all of them have undergone a PCR test at Terminal 3 before processing immigration, and then heading to the quarantine location. There are no passengers from abroad who do not undergo a PCR test," said Muhammad Awaluddin.
