IN addition to opening domestic routes, AirAsia also opened international flight routes after being closed a few months because of Pandemic COVID-19.

Quoted from AirAsia’s official website said flights that opened on 19 June were only limited to two destinations, namely Surabaya-Kuala Lumpur and Medan-Kuala Lumpur. For this reason, AirAsia enforces international route travel requirements that are shared between Indonesian Citizens (WNI) and Foreign Citizens (WNA).

There are five conditions requested by AirAsia airlines for Indonesian citizens who will travel internationally. First, showing your identity or passport. Second, Indonesian citizens who come from abroad must conduct a PCR test at the time of arrival if they have not carried out the PCR test and cannot show a letter of PCR test results from the country of departure.

Third, during the PCR test until waiting for the results to come out, Indonesian citizens must undergo quarantine at the special quarantine accommodation provided by the government. Can also be certified hotels in the implementation of quarantine accommodation COVID-10 from the Ministry of Health.

Fourth, Indonesian citizens are asked to download the Care Protect application on their mobile devices. Finally asked to fill out an electronic health alert card or e-HAC on the website

Whereas for foreigners there is only one difference in terms of not being required to bring PCR test results but a health certificate in English that states it is free from respiratory ailments.

Although not required, AirAsia also recommends that foreign passengers carry a negative PCR test result, which is issued by the health authority of the country of origin and is valid for a maximum of 7 days upon arrival. In addition, some of the conditions required for Indonesian citizens are the same as those imposed for foreigners. [photo special]
