Jakarta - Airplane passengers from abroad who have just landed at Soekarno-Hatta Airport must undergo international arrival procedures, including PCR tests in the area to prevent an increase in COVID-19 transmission, including new variants.
In order to ensure that international arrival procedures are carried out properly and health protocols are carried out with high standards at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, the Ministry of Transportation together with Soekarno-Hatta Airport stakeholders has established various arrangements for the arrival of international passengers.
One of the arrangements made is listed in the letter of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation Number AU.006/2/7/DRJU.DAU-2021.
Based on the letter, starting September 30, 2021, national airlines and foreign airlines are required to submit data on the planned arrival of the aircraft and the number of passengers transported before the aircraft departs from the airport of origin to the Chair of the Airport Facilities Committee, the Commander of the Air Task Force, the Head of the Port Health Office and the Head of the Port Health Office. Executive General Manager of Soekarno-Hatta Airport.
President Director of PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) Muhammad Awaluddin said Soekarno-Hatta Airport fully supports the implementation of these provisions.
“The Ministry of Transportation, AP II, airlines, KKP Ministry of Health and all stakeholders are always trying to improve standards in every aspect. We really welcome the integration of passenger data so that Soekarno-Hatta Airport stakeholders can make various preparations properly and accurately to ensure that international arrival procedures can run even better."
AP II, continued Muhammad Awaluddin, has prepared information technology infrastructure to facilitate reporting or integration of aircraft passenger data.
“AP II has prepared the Health Protocol Readiness (HORE) application for use by airlines and stakeholders at Soekarno-Hatta Airport. This application makes it easier to report or integrate data on international airplane passengers who will arrive at Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport, as mandated in the letter from the Directorate General of Air Transportation of the Ministry of Transportation, "explained Muhammad Awaluddin.
At the departure airport, airlines can fill in passenger data into the HORE application. So that when passengers are still on a flight to Soekarno-Hatta Airport, stakeholders have received the passenger data.
The passenger data received by the stakeholders then becomes the basis for handling and setting up the international arrival area.
"When airplane passengers arrive at Terminal 3, conditioning has been carried out in the international arrival area so that the procedure can be carried out properly by the Ministry of Health KKP, AP II, and other stakeholders.
At the international arrivals area, airplane passengers simply register by stating their name or passport number and then getting a barcode. This barcode is used to process validation of health documents, PCR tests in terminals, taking PCR tests, boarding buses for quarantine preparation, to processing at quarantine locations.
“The integration of airplane passenger data supported by the HORE application makes passenger arrival arrangements better. Stakeholders can more accurately predict activities in the international arrival area, health protocols are running well, and passengers can process arrivals at a faster time, "said Muhammad Awaluddin.
The use of the HORE application complements the International eHAC which must be filled out by airplane passengers through the PeduliLindung application before departure at the origin airport.
This International eHAC will then be verified along with health documents by the Ministry of Health's KKP personnel at Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport.
Since September 19, 2021, all passengers from abroad who landed at Soekarno-Hatta Airport immediately carried out a PCR test at Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport. In the period 19 - 29 September 2021, PCR tests have been carried out on about 18,000 airplane passengers, most of whom are Indonesian Migrant Workers (PMI) and the rest are non-PMI travelers.
