Mobilizing Baliís Tourists

Baliís Ngurah Rai Airport Prepares Electric Carts to Help Elderly and Disabled Travelers Navigate Under-Construction Air Gateway

(4/20/2012) The ongoing US$215 million renovation of Bali’s airport has caused inconvenience to passengers who must often walk considerable distance around ongoing construction areas to access parts of the international passenger terminal.

Kompas.com reports that such inconvenience no longer need to be a concern of elderly or invalid passengers following the provision of a fleet of electric carts now available without charge to assist passengers challenged by navigating their way around the active construction site.

At this time, all passengers are compelled to walk about 150 meters between planes and the international terminal and 300 meters between aircraft and the domestic terminal.

Passengers checking in at the final moments for outgoing flights are also sometimes compelled to run to cover the distance to their departing flight.

The public relations managers for the airport development project, Hary Budi Waluyo, said: “We have actually prepared eight electrical carts to bring people to the passenger terminal. The public needs to know about this service.”

Every cart can carry four people. The carts have also been modified to provide space for the carriage of luggage.

Hary said the electrical carts were being prioritized for elderly, sick, children and those checking in late for a flight. Passengers only need to ask for assistance at the point of disembarkation.
