Take a Number, Get in Line

Passengers at Baliís Airport Warned to Expect Delays November 16-20 Due to ASEAN and East Asia Summit

(11/12/2011) During the ASEAN and East Asia Summit to be held in Nusa Dua, Bali November 17-19, 2011, passengers arriving or departing Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport may expect frequent delays.

Kompas.com quotes the general manager of PT Angkasa I for the Bali airport, Purwanto, as saying delays of up to 30 minutes can be expected whenever flight schedules overlap with the arrival or departure of a head of state at the island’s air gateway.

Security protocols require the suspension of commercial flights during a “sterilized” period surrounding the movement of an aircraft carrying a head of state in Bali.

Most delays will occur between November 16-20, as 18 heads of state move in and out of Bali.

Angkasa Pura, the managers of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport, say all effort will be made to keep delays for passengers to a minimum through close cooperation with the affected airlines.
