Is it Safe Yet?

While Waiting for the Results of TSA's Latest Safety Audit, Government Aviation Official Claims Bali is Indonesia's Safest Airport.

(3/31/2007) Despite the continuing warning in place by America's Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) classifying Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport as falling short on internatonal safety standards, the Indonesian Director General of Civil Aviation at the Department of Transportation, Budhi Muliawan Suyitno told the Indonesian language Bisnis Indonesia that Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport is now in compliance with TSA safety standards.

In fact, according to Suyitno, Bali's airport ranks Number #1 for safety and security among Indonesia's entire list of 25 international air gateways.

According to Suyitno, only Bali's Airport received acknowledgement from the TSA, beating out Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta Airport in terms of safety standards.

A team of TSA Auditors were in Bali during the last week of March 2007 fueling hope that the negative notice about safety at Bali's airport displayed at major airports across the United States may soon be removed.
