I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali, recorded that it has served 5.294 domestic route passengers who traveled for non-homecoming reasons by 81 planes on 6-10 May 2021. There are the first five days of the implementation of the ban on going home for Idul Fitri.
“The traffic of passengers and aircraft in the last five days during the Lebaran 2021 homecoming ban, when compared to the daily average in April, has decreased significantly by around 90 percent,” said Stakeholder Relation Manager of PT Angkasa Pura I (Persero) International Airport I Branch Office, Taufan Yudhistira.
He said the passengers who departed and arrived at Ngurah Rai Airport had fulfilled the flight requirements according to the COVID-19 Handling Task Force Circular Number 13 of 2021, including passengers who were exempted from the homecoming ban.
“For dominant passengers, there tend to be more passengers at the arrival terminal,” he said.
Taufan explained that his party estimates that the decline in the number of passengers and aircraft at Ngurah Rai Airport will continue until the 2021 Eid homecoming ban ends.
