PT Angkasa Pura II President Director Muhammad Awaluddin said the company has a program to anticipate the spread of the Corona virus and is ready with various scenarios.

Anticipatory measures to prevent the entry of the Corona virus have been carried out by PT Angkasa Pura II and the Ministry of Health's Port Health Office (KKP) since early January 2020, in line with the issuance of the Circular of the Director General of Disease Prevention and Control of the Ministry of Health on January 3, 2020.

"Since early January 2020, PT Angkasa Pura II together with KKP at the airport have been conducting intensive coordination so that it is maximum in preventing the entry of the Corona virus.

Prevention efforts continue until now at 19 airports in PT Angkasa Pura II airport. Following are the efforts of PT Angkasa Pura II to prevent the spread of Corona virus to Indonesia:
1. Activating the thermal scanner At the aircraft passenger terminal, PT Angkasa Pura II and the Port Health Office (KKP) have operated a thermal scanner to scan the body temperature of the passenger plane. If there are airplane passengers with temperatures above 38 degrees Celsius then the screen on the monitor is detected in red and further action will be taken.

2. Equip Personnel with Thermo Gun The use of the thermo gun is the same as a thermal scanner which is to scan the body temperature of the passenger plane. The advantage of the thermo gun is that it is compact and easy to carry (mobile) by personnel concerned for passenger inspection.

3. Conduct surveillance syndrome Personnel is concerned to monitor and improve supervision to find the presence or absence of passenger aircraft infected with the Corona virus.

4. Providing more hand sanitizers at the airplane passenger terminal Clean living behavior can help prevent the outbreak of aircraft passengers from the Corona virus. PT Angkasa Pura II now provides more hand sanitizers at the passenger terminal of the aircraft, especially at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

5. Distributing masks regularly to the airport community PT Angkasa Pura II in collaboration with a number of agencies periodically distributing masks to passengers and other communities to prevent the spread of the Corona virus.

8. Activation of the Alert Monitoring Post Alert Coronavirus in Soekarno-Hatta The Command Post was activated in Soekarno-Hatta on January 31, 2020, or the day after WHO declared the Corona virus a Public Health Emergency. The post is equipped with a variety of medical equipment, CCTV monitors that monitor all passenger terminals, and the latest technological systems to speed up responses in tackling or preventing the spread of the Corona virus. This post is also a coordination post between stakeholders at the airport.

 9. Establish procedures for handling aircraft carrying passengers infected with the Corona virus. In addition to anticipating efforts, Soekarno-Hatta Airport also has a contingency plan if there are passenger aircraft that are infected with the Corona virus. If there is a report from a pilot regarding a passenger who is infected with the Corona virus, then the aircraft will be placed in an isolation area (apron) on the air side, as soon as it lands in Soekarno-Hatta. In that condition, Emergency Center Operation is activated and Mobile Command Post is used. Then, the ambulance from the hospital will be given access to the isolation area guided by Aviation Security and Apron Movement Control (AMC) personnel.

10. Stopping Indonesian-China flights and vice versa The Government and PT Angkasa Pura II temporarily suspended all flights on the Indonesia-China route and vice versa starting from 5 February 2020 at 00.00. PT Angkasa Pura II Airport which serves direct flights to China is Soekarno-Hatta, where there are 16 flight route permits with 143 aircraft movements every week.

 11. Ensure that airplane passengers who arrive fill out the PT Angkasa Pura II Health Alert Card assisting the KKP to ensure that the Health Alert Card form is filled in by every passenger who arrives at the airport. The card is a sign that the passenger has been through the screening process at the airport, and increases alertness if the passenger experiences health complaints and seek treatment outside the airport.

A Health Alert Card (HAC) card is also given to passengers while on board and then filled out before landing. Later the card is stored for 14 days, in that time if there is an illness such as cough, runny nose, tightness, then the person must come to the nearest health service
