The National Committee for Competitiveness (KPPU) is urging the Bali Department of Transportation to undertake a reformation of the taxi system at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport now operated under a monopoly.

As reported by Seputarbali.com, a member of the KPPU, N. Nawir Messi, said; “The monopoly practice for taxis at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport inflicts losses on the consumer and violates Law No. 5 of 1999 against monopolies and unhealthy competitions.” He claims the current taxi operation at the Bali airport provide no choice of taxi service for arriving passengers and also fails to use meters to calculate fares.

Nawir continued, “In fact, the law defines a taxi as a form of public transportation, the cost of which is calculated by meters that measure the distance traveled.” He said the taxi situation at Bali's airport  results in a very negative image of Indonesia for foreign visitors.

He also pointed out that in conformance with the law taxi monopolies have been eliminated at many airports across Indonesia.

Nawir called on the managers of the airport, PT Angkasa Pura, to create a competitive atmosphere for taxi operations at Bali’s air gateway by eliminating the current monopolistic practice. He pointed out, however, that the authority to reform the taxi monopoly at the Bali airport rests primarily with the Bali Transportation Office.

Joining Nawir’s call was the director of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Consumer Protection Bureau (YLPK), Putu Armaya, who said, “Passengers traveling through the airport are forced to pay high prices (for taxis) because there is now other public transportation option.”
