“Customers who do not complete the requirements will be refused to leave and are welcome to cancel their tickets,” said Joni.
KAI advised customers not to bring excess luggage or valuables that are too conspicuous. In addition, KAI also appeals to customers to set the arrival time at the train station. Ideally the customer arrives at the station 45-60 minutes before the departure of his train.
The aim is to anticipate traffic jams to and from the station, avoid the risk of being left behind by the train, avoid queuing at boarding because there is an inspection of travel requirements, provide sufficient time for those who have to do antigen screening at the station, and make it easier for officers to break down the density at the station according to health protocols. .
“KAI appreciates all customers who have used KAI’s services in this Eid transportation and have complied with the established rules so that they can enjoy a safe, healthy and comfortable train journey together,” concluded Joni.
