JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – The number of passenger flights during the previous emergency Covid-19 measures from July 3-25 dropped significantly at 15 Indonesian airports managed by the airport operator PT Angkasa Pura (AP) I.

"The number of passenger flights saw a dramatic 76 percent drop,” said its president director Faik Fahmi in a statement on Monday, July 26.

He said the decline showed that the implementation of Covid-19 measures suppressed people’s mobility in the air transportation sector.
