Traveling during the Covid-19 pandemic is a challenge for tourists. Especially if you choose a plane as the transportation. There are many important things that tourists must obey. Starting from using a mask, keeping your distance, washing your hands and many other important things.
So, what are the requirements for safe traveling by plane during a pandemic? VP of Garuda Indonesia Infligt Services, Yanti Herlina R. Siregar, said tourists who are going to tourism destination areas must be vigilant to maintain their health and safety during the pandemic period. Especially if you use plane transportation, he appealed to the public not to be afraid.
“People can visit our website. There they can see the health protocols on the flight. Starting from the airport, check-in, even to the officers implementing health protocols,” said Yanti, in Jakarta, Wednesday (11/11/2020 ).
According to him, the requirements for flying by plane must be obeyed. Apart from complying with health protocols at the airport, boarding, and even on the plane. Tourists must also wash their hands or use a hand sanitizer. “In accordance with the Ministry of Transportation’s circular letter, airlines must be filled with 70 percent of passengers to prioritize social distancing on the plane. If when you fly you see that the center seat of the plane is vacated, this is proof of our seriousness in promoting social distancing. We also have hepa filter technology that can filter out bacteria and viruses on board, “he said.
He also ensures the health and safety of passengers from Covid-19. In fact, Garuda Indonesia is working with Carex to help reduce the spread of Covid-19. During the flight, passengers will receive a personal health kit while on the plane with six selected routes. This health kit contains several hand sanitizers and wipe cleansing. Provision of personal health kitters is valid from 11 November to 15 December 2020.
According to Yanti, there will be six selected city routes, namely Medan, Yogyakarta, Solo, Semarang, Surabaya and Denpasar. These six cities are domestic favorite routes.
“We prioritize target passengers who are full of contents. So they can fly safely and include a personal health kit,” he said.
Garuda Indonesia Director of Services, Business Development and Information Technology, Ade R Susardi said, Garuda Indonesia welcomes this synergy. This collaboration can provide optimal health protection for Indonesian people who fly through the CarexGA for Indonesia movement.
“The synergy that we carry out with Carex is also in line with our efforts and commitment to always provide safe and comfortable flight services for passengers by implementing health protocols consistently and continuously in all operational lines of Garuda Indonesia,” said Ade.
Furthermore, Ade explained, he ensures that the accessibility of air transportation services can continue to be available to the public during a pandemic by implementing comprehensive health protocols.
Meanwhile, Managing Director of PZ Cussons Asia, Dimitris Kostianis said, through this collaboration, his party wants to provide twice the protection for Indonesian families who frequently travel by plane. Of course, by inviting the public to always practice a clean lifestyle and maintain hand hygiene.
According to him, people can choose several product categories that are suitable for hand hygiene, by hand washing their hands with water.
“When traveling, you should always bring hand sanitizers and Carex Wipes to keep your hands clean because they are proven to not only protect your hands from viruses and bacteria but also keep your skin soft because of the natural anti-bacterial content of Nectarol, which comes from Manuka Honey and aloe vera as a moisturizer naturally, “he said.
