The world is currently experiencing a global crisis due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The health crisis has rapidly triggered various crises in other sectors such as economy and education. This vicious circle must be carefully and gradually handled so that it can be resolved properly without causing too many victims as what has happened in many countries in the world. Indonesia, particularly as the largest archipelagic country in the world with around 17,504 islands and 2,000 of which are inhabited, has the potential to experience considerable economic disparities between regions. To reduce this potential risk, sea transportation is one of the `alternative solutions.

This study mainly aims to formulate a New Normal Model in Sea Transportation (Consequences for Post-Covid-19 Maritime Axis Development) by 1) identifying the conditions of passenger ships and ports during the Covid-19 pandemic; 2) analyzing the ideal conditions of passenger ships and ports after the COVID-19 pandemic; and 3) analyzing the role of the government in the New Normal Model for passenger ship transportation.

This study used a mixed method, a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, with analytical instruments namely atlas.ti, hypothetical market, and stakeholder analysis to achieve the main objective. This research was conducted in several ports in Indonesia using primary and secondary data which were collected through in-depth interviews and Focus Group Discussions.

The results show a very large and even negative decline due to lockdowns being enforced in almost all regions in Indonesia as a response to halt the Covid-19 pandemic
