"ANTAM is always committed to support the Government in accelerating the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, one of which is through vaccination programs that are carried out routinely in each of the Company's operational areas. Of course, this program can run well thanks to the synergy with the Indonesian Air Force Atang Sendjaja Air Base and the local government," added Yulan.
In addition to the vaccination program, ANTAM has also made other contributions in accelerating the handling of COVID-19, such as assistance with medical equipment in several hospitals, some basic needs, as well as protection needs such as masks and hand sanitizer to the public so that they are disciplined in implementing health protocols.
