AirAsia Indonesia to resume flights this month

AirAsia Indonesia will resume flights on June 19 as the country has gradually relaxed rules on the large-scale social restrictions imposed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the airline said.

President Director of AirAsia Indonesia Veranita Yosephine Sinaga said that preparations for the resumption of the scheduled flights have been carried out, reports Xinhua news agency.

“AirAsia is committed to serving the needs of travelling or transporting goods to across the country and abroad through special charter flights for passengers and cargoes,” she remarked.

The airline said that the travellers flying with AirAsia in the future are required to understand and strictly adhere to and comply with health and immigration requirements, and the travel restrictions set up by the governments of the country of origin and those of the destination.

The airline said it will gradually reinstate its services around the networks once the global health situation improves and regulatory restrictions are terminated.

Indonesia has gradually relaxed its restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic in the hope of a pickup in business activities but also heeded the areas where the transmission rates remain afloat.
