State-owned national airport management company PT Angkasa Pura I has lowered the cost of rapid test services at its 8 airports to Rp. 85,000. Previously, the cost for the rapid test was set at around Rp. 150,000 to Rp. 200,000.
PT Angkasa Pura I stated that the rapid test price reduction was carried out to facilitate air travel for travelers.

Angkasa Pura I always implements health protocols to prevent the spread of Covid-19 at the rapid test service locations at each of these airports. The officers are required to carry out a body temperature check before working, using personal protective equipment (PPE) consisting of a face shield, mask, gloves and protective clothing. In addition, the rapid test service area is also routinely disinfected to ensure cleanliness.
