Going Offshore III

After knowing your destination (offshore platform), you must go to the helicopter airport and check-in. At the counter, you must present your identity card and your offshore passport to the officer, besides informing your destination platform. The officer will then inspect the documents and check your flight booking made by the Radio Officer (R.O.) from the platform you're going to (you must liaise with that particular platform to do the flight arrangement prior to the departure) in the computer.

If your flight booking made by the R.O. existed in the system, you'll receive the boarding pass. Your luggage will be weighted and it must not exceed certain kgs. The luggage will then be collected and sent directly to the helicopter after an x-ray and thorough inspection have been made. No flammable or explosive materials allowed.

"Sticker Tag" must be attached neatly on your luggage. The tag is important because it shows which platform the bag will go to. You must put on the correct tag in order to make sure that the luggage will arrive at the platform together with you. Some examples: Platform Bekok C will have a tag : "BEC", Platform Dulang B will have a tag : "DLB", Platform Tiong A will have a tag : "TIA". For your information, there are many platforms out there (South China Sea) and you must not make a mistake attaching the tag. In most cases, the luggage will travel in the same helicopter as the passenger.

Mobile phones are also not allowed. You must leave your hand phone behind either by renting a safe box (this service is provided by the airport) or leave it inside your car or ask somebody to keep it for you. I always leave my hand phone inside my car parked at the airport.
