The Regent of Jembrana has announced the intention of his local government to move ahead with plans to complete a feasibility study for a new international airport for the island of Bali located near Negara in West Bali.
I Gede Winsasa, confirmed that the Jimbrana Government has budgeted the funds for the study which he hopes will clear the way for modern airport facility capable of accommodating the new generation of aircraft now being developed. Ngurah Rai International Airport, the current airport of Bali, is limited both in terms of carrying capacity and its runway length which is insufficient to permit take-off by a fully-loaded and fully-fueled B-747.
Projecting that the proposed airport would generate 50,000 jobs, the Jembrana government is reportedly approaching investors from Japan and France to join in the project.
