According to the minister, airport operators should socialize the importance of wearing masks, washing hands, physical distancing, and implementing other measures.
"I really appreciate the hard work of the Angkasa Pura II management and its commitment to implementing strict health protocols, especially at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport," said Erick in his written statement on Friday.
Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is Indonesia's main gateway which plays a major role in suppressing the spread of covid-19.
Moreover, the aviation industry is also significantly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, the number of airplane passengers continues to increase in line with the implementation of strict health protocols.
"Airplane passengers are slowly starting to increase, so health protocols are the most important thing that must be implemented," he explained.
