The management of PT Angkasa Pura I International Airport I Gusti Ngurah Rai, officially added the Rapid Test Antigen service facility. After previously operating the Antibody and Antigen Rapid Test service located in the public area of the Domestic Terminal, as of Wednesday, December 23, yesterday, the official airport management added one more Antigen rapid test service facility.
According to the General Manager of PT Angkasa Pura I International Airport I Gusti Ngurah Rai, Bali, Herry A.Y. Sikado, in its release, aims to add this service to meet the high demand. “For the Rapid Antigen Test service, we add one more facility to accommodate the high demand from prospective aircraft passengers and the general public who want an easy-to-reach Rapid Antigen Test service,” he explained.
He said that the Rapid Antibody Test service had previously been operated since July 22. Then the Rapid Antigen Test service since 18 December.
Both are located in the public area of the domestic terminal. “We put this material at the Wisti Sabha Lama in the domestic departure terminal area for the Rapid Antigen Test Service. So it will accommodate more potential service users, “added Herry.
In operating this service, the management of PT Angkasa Pura I as the airport manager is working with Farmalab to operate this service every day. Including Sundays and holidays, from 08.00AM to 08.00PM.
“For prospective passengers and the general public who want to do this additional Rapid Antigen Test, the fare is IDR 170,000 for one test. The test results will be known immediately within a span of approximately 60 minutes after taking the test sample, “continued Herry.
Since the enactment of the Covid-19 handling task force circular No. 3 of 2020 which took effect on December 19 yesterday, prospective aircraft passengers destined for Java Island are required to complete themselves with a Certificate of Rapid Antigen Test Results. The validity period is maximum 3×24 hours before the date of departure.
The high frequency of flights from Bali to destination airports on the island of Java is one factor in the addition of this service. “Since the enactment of this rule, we note that every day, the average number of flights departing for destinations in Java is 60 flights from an average number of flights departing daily as many as 89 flights. So 68% of the average departure flights that we serve are for the island of Java, ”said Herry.
Prospective passengers and the general public who want to do the Rapid Antigen Test, can register online by downloading the “Labor Farmalab” application on the Google PlayStore or via the website www.farmalab.co.id then registering by filling in their personal data and making a reservation. “We hope that with the addition of this facility, prospective passengers and the general public can be facilitated in completing flight requirements,” concluded Herry.
