AirAsia Indonesia is offering drive-through rapid COVID-19 testing for passengers leaving from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Banten.

The service is provided daily from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. for Rp 95.000 (US$6.51) at Soewarna Business Park located at the airport.

To use the service, passengers are required to show their booking ID and identity card. After registering and completing payment, a sample will be taken and passengers are to wait 10 to 15 minutes for the result.

The rapid test results and medical certificate will be valid for 14 days.

In a statement, AirAsia Indonesia director Veranita Yosephine said, “The service will be expanded to Indonesian cities that AirAsia currently serves.”

The airline has gradually resumed its operations and is now serving domestic routes from Jakarta to Medan, Surabaya, Bali, Lombok and Yogyakarta.

Earlier this month, AirAsia Indonesia updated its baggage policy and announced that passengers could bring two carry-on bags with certain requirements.

The total maximum weight for both bags should be 7 kilograms, otherwise they will be placed with checked baggage.

AirAsia Indonesia provides a free baggage allowance of up to 15 kg for domestic flights. (wng)
