Carrying Capacity. Whatís That?

As Airport Redevelopment Continues, Baliís Domestic Airport Overloaded by 340%


(1/15/2012)

PT Angkasa Pura I (PAP), the management authority of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport, estimates the total number of passengers increased dramatically through November 2011.

The spokesman for PAP, Sherly Yunita, told Bisnis.com that the Ngurah Rai Airport was overloaded and expected to have serviced 6.6 million domestic passengers when the final tally is counted at the end of December. This figure exceeds the 1.5 million passengers official carrying capacity of the domestic terminal by 340%.

“For this reason we are enlarging the airport,” explained Sherly. She said there are 175 domestic flights each day to and from Bali bringing around 18,000 domestic passengers. “With these figures,” she continued, “there is an urgent need for development (of the airport).”

Adding to the overloaded condition of Bali’s only airport is the approximate 2.75 million foreign tourist who passed through the international terminal. The international terminal is now handling an average 17,000 passengers each day coming and going on some 108 international flights.

“To overcome this problem,” said Sherly, “Ankasa Pura I is targeting the completion of the expansion of the airport by March 2013. The expansion will utilize all the land owned by the state-owned company at the airport complex." 

Separately, the spokesman for the airport expansion project, Hari Budi Waluyo, told the press how the airport’s expansion is divided into four phases. PT Jaya Construction Management is the leading and supervising contractor on the project to upgrade Bali’s airport. They are leading a team of four contractors. The first phase covers access roads leading to the new passenger and cargo facility being undertaken by PT Nindya Karya. The second phase, encompassing a parking building, catering facilities, and a promenade to connect the international and domestic terminals is being handled by PT Pembangunan Perumahan. A consortium of PT Adhi Karya and PT Wijaya Karya is undertaking the third phase covering the international passenger terminal and parking apron for aircraft.

Meanwhile the packet for the construction of the Gate Handling System is still under tender. “This phase has not had the tender winner announced,” said Shirley.

When the airport expansion program is complete it will include 16 enclosed passenger bridge-ways and 32 tunnels connecting waiting rooms to aircraft doors. This will be a significant increase from the current four bridge-ways.

The entire airport redevelopment will cost an estimated Rp. 1.94 trillion (US$ 215.5 million). These fund are coming from PT Angkasa Pura I. Construction is scheduled to be completed before the start of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Conference (APEC) happening in Bali in 2013.
