The Christmas and New Year holidays this year are predicted to be more festive than the past two years. This is because the Covid-19 pandemic is starting to subside. However, the government is still preparing travel regulations during the holiday.

These travel regulations are contained in Circular Letter Number 82 of 2022 concerning Guidelines for the Implementation of Domestic Travel by Air Transportation during the 2019 Corona Virus Disease (Covid-19) Pandemic.

Here are the complete rules for flying ahead of the 2022 Nataru holiday:
-Using a three-layer cloth medical mask or a medical mask that covers the nose, mouth, and chin
-Replace masks regularly every four hours and dispose of mask waste in the space provided
-Washing hands regularly using water and soap or hand sanitizer -Maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 meters from other people and avoid crowds -We are advised not to talk one way or two ways by phone or in person during the trip
-Must use the PeduliLindungi application
-Age 18 years and over, must get the third dose of vaccination (booster)
-Passengers aged 6-17 years, must get the second dose of vaccination
-Prospective passengers who have special health conditions or comorbid diseases are exempt from the vaccination requirements and are not required to show a negative result of a PCR or antigen test

Furthermore, transportation by plane is still the most preferred option by the public for going on vacation, especially during the Christmas and New Year (Nataru) holidays.

The conditions for boarding the plane for the Nataru holiday this time are still required to comply with health protocols. Even though passengers will no longer be asked to include proof of a PCR or Covid-19 antigen test.

even more. The Jakarta-Cikampek II South Toll Road, aka South Japek, will be opened functionally ahead of the 2022-2023 Christmas and New Year (Nataru) holidays.

The functional operation of this toll road is expected to break down the congestion that usually occurs at the meeting point of vehicles from Bandung and the North Coast at KM 66.

Main Director of South Japek II Charles Lendra said this toll road is prioritized as an alternative road to help unravel traffic congestion from Bandung to Jakarta. This lane will be opened for small vehicles if there is congestion at several points.

“Japek II Selatan is from Sadang KM 77 to the Kutanegara Toll Gate. To use this section it really depends on the existing South Japek section, yes, there is congestion on the Dawuan Interchange (KM 68) and at the Kalihurip Utama Toll Gate. Now this can be used in this section, but still with the permission of the Police, Korlantas,” he explained at the Kutanegara Toll Gate, Purwakarta, Friday (16/12/2022).
