Lion Air, Wings Air and Batik Air, members of Lion Air Group, start operating flights again today, June 10, 2020 to Bali and the rest of Indonesia and the region. Remember your swab test, or rapid test. According to a circular from Lion it appears the swab or rapid test is optional for some destinations. Corporate Communications of Lion Air Group, Danang Mandala Prihantoro, was quoted in Kompas yesterday saying passengers must have the rapid test with a validity period of three days, while the PCR has a validity period of up to seven days. The swab test is still the only valid test when arriving to Bali and we suggest checking with the airline prior to flying anywhere else.
