(12/3/2017) The State News Agency Antara quotes PT Angkasa Pura I (API I)– the managers of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport saying that arrivals totals have begun to rebuild commencing from Thursday November 30, 2017 – one day after the airport reopened the preceding day at 3:00 pm.

The AP-l spokesperson, Rai Arie Ahsanurrohim, said on Saturday, December 2, 2017, “This trend continues to climb upward due to improving operational and airlines resuming their normal schedules.”

Arie said the number of international passengers landing in Bali on Thursday, November 30, 2017, totalled 3,788 passengers arriving on 63 aircraft.
