JAKARTA - The government has issued regulations relating to transportation operations during the period of adaptation to new habits amid the Covid-19 pandemic. These regulations are Circular Letter 07/2020 issued by the Task Force for the Acceleration of Handling Covid-19, then Regulation of the Minister of Transportation Number PM 41/2020 and Circular Letter of the Director General of Civil Aviation Number SE 13/2020.
The three regulations allow public transportation including in the aviation sector to operate while maintaining hygiene and health protocols.
President Director of PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) or AP II Muhammad Awaluddin said the aviation sector responded positively to the issuance of the three regulations.
"Looking at the data we received, the airline responded positively to the issuance of the three regulations. The aviation sector is slowly returning to life and certainly AP II as the airport manager continues to closely monitor the running of health and hygiene protocols at the airport," Muhammad Awaluddin said in Jakarta, Wednesday (10) / 6/2020).
He explained that flight frequency and passenger air traffic at Soekarno-Hatta Airport were believed to be slowly moving upward in the period of adaptation to this new habit. Angkasa Pura II also reminded all aircraft passengers, airport personnel, airline personnel and others to always wear masks, apply physical distancing according to signs at the airport, and wash their hands frequently.
As is known, starting tomorrow the national airline Lion Air will also resume operations in Soekarno-Hatta, following Garuda Indonesia and Citilink.
As stated in the Circular of the Director General of Civil Aviation Number SE 13/2020, in determining flight slot time at the airport, one that is taken into account is the capacity at the passenger terminal at busy times by taking into account the area, configuration of airport terminal facilities and application of technology.
According to the circular, the terminal capacity is set at a maximum of 50% of the number of Busy Time Passengers (PWS) during normal periods, but can be increased through evaluation results by the Director General based on data and proposals from airport operators.
Awaluddin said that through the application of information technology such as at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, terminal capacity in busy times could be determined more flexibly.
"Soekarno-Hatta applies information technology that collaborates all aspects of operations to ensure smooth flight and passenger flow in all conditions. Plus, in the near future there is new information technology that is immediately applied. Through the application of this information technology, the terminal capacity at Soekarno-Hatta can determined more flexible, maybe more than 50% of the number of passengers during busy times, "Awaluddin said.
The application of information technology in Soekarno-Hatta, collaborating all operational aspects including through the Terminal Operation Center (TOC) in Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. The TOC of each terminal will support collaboration among stakeholders centered at the Airport Operation Control Center (AOCC).
Overall, TOC and AOCC are the foundation of the airport operating platform for the Airport Operation Management System which is supported by reliable technology implementation.
"Through the implementation of information technology, Soekarno-Hatta can run a quick response, early warning system detection and operational effectiveness. The application of this technology can easily assist in determining the capacity of terminals that can used, "explained Awaluddin.
In the near future the Travel application will also be launched by PT Angkasa Pura II. Through Travelation, prospective aircraft passengers can upload the required documents such as a letter from the results of the PCR test or rapid test to be allowed to board the flight.
"Travelation aims to simplify the procedure in which documents are digitally checked. We hope this can have an impact on simpler queuing system procedures at airports so that passenger flow can run smoothly," he said.
The queue system inspection procedure for health documents itself is one that is taken into account in determining the capacity of airport terminals during busy times.
