The Best Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Southeast Asia in the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Here Are 4 Reasons

18 Apr 2022

Jakarta - In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, health protocols are one of the important aspects that must be implemented to protect us in every activity, prevent the emergence of new variants and stop the chain of virus spread.

In line with that, PT Angkasa Pura II is fully committed to implementing good health protocols at the 20 airports managed by the company.

AP II President Director Muhammad Awaluddin said the health protocols implemented at the AP II airport were in accordance with domestic regulations and international best practices.

“The most effective mode of transportation in an archipelagic country is airplane. Airports must be able to maintain a sense of security and comfort in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic for the public or airplane passengers, so that the air transportation sector can still contribute to handling the pandemic and recovering the national economy.”

AP II airports themselves have also received various global awards following their consistency in following health protocols, including through innovations in Biosecurity and Biosafety Management.

One of the AP II airports that has received the most global awards related to the implementation of health protocols in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic is Soekarno-Hatta Airport, which is Indonesia's main gateway and the busiest airport in the country.

The following are the awards or achievements of Soekarno-Hatta Airport at the global level related to efforts to prevent COVID-19:

1. The COVID-19 Airport Excellence Awards from Skytrax
Skytrax announced 39 airports that deserved The COVID-19 Airport Excellence Awards. In the Southeast Asia region, there are two airports that won this award, namely Soekarno-Hatta Airport and Changi Airport (Singapore).

This award comes from customer assessments of a number of key aspects, including information boards regarding COVID-19, mandatory use of masks, availability and location of hand sanitizers, social distancing markers, obligations to maintain distance, arrangement of restaurant/dining chairs, hygienic procedures when security checks, keep your distance during security checks, immigration, passenger terminal cleanliness and toilet cleanliness.

2. Best Hygiene Measures by Region (Asia-Pacific) 2021 dari Airport Council International
Pada Maret 2022, Airport Council International mengumumkan bandara yang pantas mendapat penghargaan Best Hygiene Measures. 

Penghargaan ini diberikan ACI kepada setiap bandara yang memiliki prosedur dan layanan baru di tengah pandemi COVID-19 sesuai keinginan traveler guna memenuhi kebutuhan mereka, dan untuk memastikan lingkungan bandara tetap bersih dan aman di tengah pandemi.

Untuk di kawasan Asia Pasifik atau Best Hygiene Measures by Region (Asia-Pacific), hanya ada 10 bandara yang berhasil merasih penghargaan tersebut, dan 6 di antaranya dikelola oleh AP II salah satunya yakni Bandara Soekarno-Hatta.

Skor yang diraih Bandara Soekarno-Hatta ini tertinggi di ASEAN dan menyamai skor dari Bandara Changi (Singapura). Di dalam penilaian sebelumnya, Bandara Soekarno-Hatta mendapat skor di bawah Bandara Changi. 

4. Airport Health Accreditation dari Airport Council International 
Bandara Soekarno-Hatta berhasil mendapat akreditas dari Airport Council International (ACI), yakni Airport Health Accreditation atas penerapan protokol kesehatan di tengah pandemi COVID-19.
