On the first day of the implementation of the GeNose C19 service at I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Tuban, Kuta District, Badung on Friday (9/4), only 320 people or potential passengers used the facility.
AP I as the airport manager has prepared a quota of up to 600 bags. Angkasa Pura I Stakeholder Relations Manager Taufan Yudhistira explained that at the inaugural opening of the GeNose C19 service at Ngurah Rai Airport, his party provided 600 plastic bags for service users. However, of the total quota, only 320 inflatable bags were used.
Taufan Yudhistira explained, at the inaugural opening of the GeNose service, his party had estimated that relatively few would use it. This is because prospective passengers do not know or even have certificates for air travel such as rapid antigen and PCR. So, not too many have used the services provided in the public area of the domestic departure terminal.
“According to our predictions, this is the case. Because this is just the beginning, people also have another certificate, “added Taufan.
Asked about the results of the examination of service users who use the GeNose service, Taufan did not specify whether anyone was positive for Covid-19 or not. According to him, this is the privacy of prospective passengers.
