Prospective airplane passengers can also go directly to the Airport Health Center location to do a test (walk in service).
Although the COVID-19 test service is available at AP II airport, Yado Yarismano said AP II still urges prospective airplane passengers to carry out COVID-19 tests at health facilities or laboratories outside the airport so that when they arrive at the airport, prospective airplane passengers can immediately process departures.
As is known, in the midst of this pandemic, prospective airplane passengers must meet a number of requirements, including showing a vaccination card and a COVID-19 test certificate which is also available digitally in the PeduliLindung application.
