He explained that Ngurah Rai International Airport is operating at 50% capacity while prior to this month the airport operated at 35%.

In anticipation of a massive influx of domestic visitors, increased airport security (Avsec) that will be supervising the airport area to assure that everyone, including airport staff, is following prevention protocols.

Taufan suggested that all passengers fill out the Health Alert Card (HAC) through the digital app e-HAC, available on both Play and App Store. The new app is recommended to be downloaded prior to departure in order to prevent long wait times upon arrival.

He also reminded passengers to prepare their ID and a negative result rapid or swab test document before beginning their trip.

“For the peak season this year, we predict about 10 to 15 thousand people per day will use air travel” Taufan concluded.
