JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Passenger capacity restrictions and health-related protocols will hinder the recovery of airlines and hotels in Indonesia post pandemic, said Special Adviser to the Office of the Coordinating Economy Minister Raden Pardede.

He estimates that airlines and hotels will need at least two years to fully recover and operate normally.

Restrictions in the number of passengers for airlines will impact their revenue. Added protocols will also make travelers think twice before traveling by plane post pandemic.

“Thus I believe that industries involved in hospitality will see a slower recovery,” said Raden Pardede.

The financial performance of airlines and hotels in Indonesia took a steep downturn as the government imposed social restrictions and closed borders to travelers.

The downturn is in line with the global airline and hospitality industries’ performance.

Hotels in Indonesia recently opened in parts of the country where social restrictions have been loosened such as Jakarta.
