Senai International Airport has updated travel procedures and new safety measures as airlines resume more domestic flights in stages over the coming weeks.

The operator of the airport, Senai Airport Terminal Terminal Services Sdn Bhd (SATS), has confirmed that the additional measures and procedures that allow all passengers and airport operators to wear a mask at the airport entrance and have body temperature screening only at temperatures of 37 ° C will be permitted to enter the airport building.

"To ensure the procedure implementation, the entry and exit to the terminal building is limited to the main entrance only and is controlled by the Aviation Security personnel," it said in a statement.

The airport also undertook to promote social distancing by placing one-meter separation signs in common areas like check-in counters, seating facilities, boarding gates, lifts, baggage pick-up areas, etc.

"The terminal area and washrooms have been fitted with hand sanitizer, soap, and water to facilitate good personal sanitary care for users of the airport," he said.

To avoid lengthy queues due to the additional travel procedures, passengers will arrive 90 minutes before departure time.

Passengers are also encouraged to check-in online to save time and ensure smooth journeys.

Chief executive officer Md Derick Basir said the airport had been working closely together with the Johor State Health Department since the pre-movement Control Order by stepping up preventive measures and controls to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection at the airport.

"Apart from continuous disinfecting and sanitizing of high usage areas, the airport has recently undergone a full-scale disinfection exercise in cooperation with Johor State Fire and Rescue Department to protect our airport users,” he said.

The airport had also engaged with its retailers and tenants to ensure that they are following the standard operating procedure guidelines introduced by the government, he added.
