Airlines under the Lion Air Group, namely Lion Air, Wings Air and Batik Air, are offering rapid COVID-19 testing for passengers, with prices starting from Rp 95,000 (US$6.62).
Providing test results that are said to be valid for 14 days, the service is available for ticket holders of Lion Air Group carriers who can purchase a rapid COVID-19 test voucher when buying their ticket.
Passengers who already have a ticket but did not get the chance to buy a voucher can show their booking code to the company’s sales channels — such as ticketing sales office, call centers, online travel agents, Lion Air’s website and Batik Air’s website — to purchase a test.
The first phase of the test will be conducted daily in four locations in Jakarta and Tangerang, Banten.
“As for the forthcoming steps, Lion Air Group’s rapid COVID-19 test service will be expanded to other cities, in ticketing sales offices and airports,” Lion Air Group corporate communication strategic Danang Mandala Prihantoro said in a statement.
The service is part of a collaboration with the Lion Air Medika clinic and is based on a recommendation by the COVID-19 special task force. (wir/wng)
