“On Tuesday (March 31) at 10.18 p.m., they landed at the I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport on board Qatar Airways flight number QR960 from the United States via Doha, Qatar," head of the Region IV Airport Authority, Elfi Amir, said here on Wednesday.
The crew members underwent a health check upon their arrival at the airport and were questioned by officials of the Port Health Office (KKP) on their travel history.
"They will undergo further health checks if they have travelled to 10 coronavirus-hit countries or show a body temperature of more than 38 degrees Celsius," Amir said.
According to Amir, all the crew members have obtained a clearance certificate from the health office, but they will have to undergo a 14-day self-quarantine.
Earlier on Monday (March 30), a total of 316 crew members of the MSC Splendida cruise ship, who were repatriated from Genoa, Italy, had arrived at the Bali airport aboard a Qatar Airways flight (number QR960).
They also underwent a health check upon their arrival.
The crew members had undergone medical tests in Genoa and had been cleared to return home before departing for Bali. (INE)
