Expand, Improve or Perish

Bali Legislator Calls for an Accelerated Remodeling Program for Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport to Maintain Destination Competitiveness.

(5/15/2010) In the face of a growing chorus of complaints from island visitors about Bali's Ngurah Rai airport, a member of Commission B the provincial house of representatives (DPRD-Bali) has called for urgent improvements and expansion of facilities at the island's air gateway.

The legislator, Wayan Puspanegara, told BisnisBali that Bali's airport is presently unable to provide an international scale of service. The excellent level of service to which the airport aspires will not be possible, according to Puspanegara, until the area of Ngurah Rai is increased and new, better facilities introduced.

The legislator also said the current airport is severely overloaded and incapable of providing fast, efficient and effective service. He also cited the need to expand and improve Bali's airport as an "absolute" necessity, with current renovations programs requiring a more accelerated pace towards completion.

Warning that Bali's reputation as an international destination is at stake, he also used the occasion to remind all concerned that Bali's airport must be built in a way that reflects Bali's character.
