Malaysia Airports carries out due diligence in ensuring the health and safety of passengers at the airport terminals.
The ongoing pandemic has changed the landscape of air travel, exemplified by the steep decline in passenger traffic worldwide. Although travel restrictions will eventually be lifted, many still fear the threat of COVID-19. Indeed, it is understandable that being safe is better than sorry.
Taking things into account, Malaysia Airports has devised a comprehensive to-do list should you find yourself in situations where you must leave the country. Here is the list outlining seven things you need to know when departing from KL International Airport (KLIA).
You may only leave the country, with prior approval from the Immigration Department, if you are a non-Malaysian or permanent resident of Malaysia; a student studying abroad; a Malaysian or permanent resident working abroad; or have an urgent purpose for travelling out of the country.
With your details filled out in the Contact Tracing App on your mobile device, the relevant authorities will be able to notify you should an outbreak occur at places you’ve been to.
Always remember to wear a face mask at all times when at the airport. This is to prevent you from touching your face - which is the entryway for germs and viruses - as well as making sure that no airborne infectious germs gets to you, especially when at the airport.
You can only enter the terminal building after going through temperature screening at various entrance checkpoints, with a body temperature of 37.5°c or lower. Passengers who are exhibiting symptoms of a high fever are denied entrance to the airport and consequently will not be allowed to board a flight.
In order to break the chain of infection, you should always keep a safe distance from others. You can do so by adhering to the physical distancing markers which are carefully placed throughout both airport terminals.
Please do prepare all the proper documentation to ensure your journey goes smoothly. It would be best if you could come up with a pre-flight checklist to get through before embarking on the flight.
The installed sneeze guard protectors at the counters are part of Malaysia Airports’ ongoing efforts in ensuring that you stay protected. You can also do your bit by staying safe through the contactless screening procedures at place and complying to the safety procedures at all touchpoints.
As you can tell, Malaysia Airports is committed to upholding the safety and health of passengers at all times. Needless to say, this guide serves as an assurance that they will keep on hosting joyful connections, even when the going gets tough.
