Flight restrictions are set to continue at both of Greater Jakarta Area’s major commercial airports, as announced by airport management firm PT Angkasa Pura II.

In a circular issued yesterday, the firm said that Soekarno-Hatta in Tangerang and Halim Perdanakusuma in East Jakarta are among the 17 airports managed by Angkasa Pura II where flight restrictions have been extended until June 7. 

“That means passengers of domestic flights must fulfill several requirements and present the relevant documents,” Angkasa Pura II Executive Director Muhammad Awaluddin said in a written statement yesterday.

Under current flight restriction rules, only passengers working in certain essential sectors, such as defense, health, and logistics, as well as those with personal emergencies are permitted to fly on the significantly reduced number of domestic flights available in Indonesia. Those exempted from the restrictions are also required to present several documents, including a travel endorsement from one’s company/institution and a COVID-19-negative medical certificate.

Domestic passengers entering Jakarta are also required to present an Entry and Exit Permit (SKIM) upon arrival. 

Outgoing international flights are still available in limited numbers. International passengers entering Indonesia are subject to a more stringent health screening process.

Angkasa Pura II manages 19 of Indonesia’s major airports, including Medan’s Kualanamu, Bandung’s Husein Sastranegara, and Pekanbaru’s Sultan Syarif Kasim.

Flight restrictions at the firm’s airports may be extended beyond June 7 if deemed necessary.
