The number of passenger and aircraft movements in the second day of Eid has even increased compared to the first day,” said AP I Main Director Faik Fahmi as quoted from an official statement on Tuesday.

Reflecting on the actual movement of passengers and aircraft during the homecoming flow on April 19 which was higher than the projection, it is very likely that the actual number will be realized. the movement of passengers and aircraft at the peak of the return flow will also be higher than the projected figure,” said Faik.
