Taking Back Bali’s Streets
Tired of Violence and Crime, Kuta Traditional Community Member form Citizen Watch Patrols and Call on Kuta Nightspots to Close at 2:00 a.m.

In the face of escalating crime and violent attacks on both locals and island visitors in the nightlife and entertainment area of Kuta, local citizen groups in Bali,  gathered from surrounding banjars in Kuta, have begun patrolling the area, effective January 16, 2012.

The citizen patrols were announced by the traditional community chief of Kuta (Bendesa), Anak Agung Keut Sudira, who said: “This should not be seen as a step taken by the village chief (lurah), the local self help organizations (LPM), or myself as a community leader. This is an activity based on a community consensus (musyawarah) among the people of Kuta.”

The patrols will include elements from the police working in concert with men representing 13 banjars in Kuta.

Sudira explained that the community watch volunteers will use youth patrols from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. and other, older members of the banjars for the second shift from 6:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m..

As reported by NusaBali, the basis of the patrols is a joint declaration signed by the various banjars of Kuta on December 30, 2011.

The group is also actively urging nightspots in Kuta to cease operations at 2:00 a.m. ending the practice of some bars and nightspots operating until sunrise. Warned Sudira: “At this time, we are only suggesting. However, if later the companies decide to ignore our suggestion, then we close them down.”


Budgeting for Disaster
Bali Provincial Government Increases Allocations for Disaster Relief by 33% for 2012

The Jakarta Post has reported that Bali’s provincial government has committed to allocate Rp. 30 billion (US$3.27 million) for disaster mitigation work in 2012.

The amount is a 33% increase from the Rp. 20 billion appropriated in 2011 for the purpose of coping with natural disasters.

Under the administration of governor Made Mangku Pastika, Bali is placing great emphasis on emergency preparedness through the establishment of a provincial crisis center in Denpasar from which to monitor developments and coordinate responses when disasters occur.

That center is only 500 meters away from the governor’s office and is housed in an earthquake-proof building and equipped with sophisticated monitoring and communication systems, including CCTV cameras installed in various locations across the island.

I Putu Anom, who is allowed to disburse funds from the disaster budget whenever the governor formally declares a natural emergency, heads the Bali Crisis Center.

The Bali Crisis Center reflects a growing awareness of the island’s vulnerability to natural disaster brought on by earthquakes, climate change, inclement weather and flooding.

The center officially counted 224 disaster incidents in 2011.


Missing in Plane Sight
Merpati Nusantara the Airline Most Likely to Cancel a Flight

While the Ministry of Transportation has named Lion Air and Sriwijaya Air as the Indonesian airlines with the worst on-time performance, the Ministry has now designated the state-owned airline Merpati Nusantara as the carrier most likely to cancel a flight.

The statistics counting performance between January-November 2011 showed the following carriers, in order of appearance, as most likely to cancel a flight
  • Merpati Nusantara 9.2% cancellation rat
  • Sriwijaya Air 4.11% cancellation rate
  • Lion Air 0.73% cancellation rate
  • Garuda Indonesia 0.82% cancellation rate
  • Batavia Air 0.54% cancellation rate
  • AirAsia (Indonesia) 0.16% cancellation rate
The Corporate Secretary for Merpati Nusantara, Imam Turyadi, told Bisnis Indonesia that the high cancellation rates for flights by his airline do not aversely impact the public. “If Merpati cancels a flight the passengers are moved to another airline if there is another airline serving that route,” explained Imam.

He continued to explain that when there is not an alternative flight operated by a competing carrier, the Merpati passengers are moved to the same flight on a subsequent day.

Imam blamed the cancellations on technical operation issues and bad weather, with poor weather in eastern Indonesia causing many flights to be cancelled.

The Coming Worldwide Downturn in Travel?
Singapore Airline Profit Downturn: Another Worrying Sign that Worldwide Travel May be on a Downhill Slope?

The Associated Press report that Singapore Airlines LTD (SIA) saw profits plunge 53% in the last quarter of 2011, a downturn attributed to rising fuel costs and slowing passenger demand worldwide.

SIA booked a profit of SG$ 135 million (US$108 million) as compared to SG$ 288 for the same quarter one year earlier.

"Forward bookings continue to show signs of weakness in the final quarter of the financial year, due to uncertainty in the global economy and the protracted Eurozone debt crisis," a company spokesman said.

Revenues for the quarter increased one percent to SG$3.9 million, a very modest growth in turnover that was greatly outpaced by a 12% increase in expenditures to SG$3.7 billion. Adding to the growing expense totals were fuel costs that grew 33% over last year and accounted for 40% of all expenditures.

According to information provided by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), airline profits worlwide are predicted to fall to US$3.5 billion this year, down dramatically from the US$6.9 billion booked in 2011.

Unfortunately, Singapore Airline's performance may portend a dismal outlook for international travel generally. The Singapore carrier is generally credited as one of the world’s best-managed carriers with an unparalleled worldwide network of routes. Because of this, SIA’s performance can arguably taken an indicative of the overall health of the global airline industry as a whole.

The Singapore Airline report follows an announcement by AirAsia to end its services to Europe and India citing declining demand, rising fuel costs, and inimical regulatory and tax regimes. Meanwhile, Garuda Indonesia announced that due to poor passenger demand they are reducing flight frequencies to Amsterdam.

An Abuse of Authority
Bali Travel Agents Claim PT Angkasa Pura I Abusing its Authority in the Management of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport

Travel agents in Bali are complaining that the manner in which the airport authority, PT Angkasa Pura I, manages Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport is both unprofessional and arbitrary.

Al Purwa, the chairman of the Bali branch of the Indonesian Association or Travel Agents (ASITA), told Bisnis Bali that the manner in which parking fees are collected is not in keeping with international practice and that there appears to be an element of coercion in other practices, such as fees imposed for floral leis presented to VIP passengers.

Purwa said that he hopes that once the current renovation program at the airport is completed that PT Angkasa Pura I can truly operate the air gateway to Bali to an international standard.

Parking

Pura, the chairman of the organization representing Bali’s licensed travel and tour companies, called into question the practice of charging a parking fee for all vehicles entering Bali’s airport, even when those vehicles only pick up or drop off a passengers without using the parking area.

Purwa complained that Bali’s airport should not be operating like a toll way, requiring everyone who enters the airport to pay a fee. “Don't let the inability of Angkasa Pura to manage the parking facility become the reason for charging everyone who passes through the airport to pay a parking fee,” said Purwa.

ASITA is calling on PT Angkasa Pura I to adopt a standard of practice in keeping with international standards. Virtually all airports around the world do not charge parking fees to vehicle merely passing through the airport without using the parking area. He said travel agents and others who are merely picking up an arriving passenger or dropping off a passenger should not be obliged to pay for parking they do not use.

A Flower Monopoly?

Purwa also complained about what appears to be abuse of power in PT Angkasa Pura I’s management of VIP welcome services used by ASITA members. Pura said that, unlike Bali, airports around the world do not compel those who use certain facilities at the airport to purchase floral leis.

On November 1, 2011, a circular letter was issued by PT Angkasa Pura I forbidding local travel agents from presenting flower leis to their arriving guests, requiring instead that they purchase floral leis from PT Penata Sarana, a company appointed by the airport, whenever a floral welcome is offered to arriving passengers.

Purwa said such a requirement was most peculiar, as travel agents have traditionally provided their own floral welcome for their VIP guests.

Continuing, Purwa questioned a fee of Rp. 1.2 million (US$133) charged for each group using a welcoming banner displayed at the airport and the high charge of Rp. 30,000 (US$3.33) levied for each floral lei given to an arriving passenger. ASITA is asking why the airport authority has appointed only one company to prepare floral welcomes, a decision in seeming violation of the anti-monopoly law of 1999.

Al Purwa acknowledged that PT Angkasa Pura I is given revenue target to meet in the operation of Bali’s airport, but, at the same time, does not think that fact alone justifies onerous and unusual fees levied on the island’s travel agents. Moreover, some agents are concerned that if they decide to present floral welcomes to passengers outside the main terminal area but still within the confines of the airport they will still be required to pay the Rp. 30,000 fee to PT Penata Sarana.

A separate report in NusaBali quotes Purwa as complaining about the over-proliferation of money-changers in the international arrival hall where, he claims, some 15 money changer harass arriving passengers. For comparison purposes, Purwa pointed to Singapore's Changi Airport where the entire money changing function is left to two operators.

Purwa also complained of the predatory behavior of porters at the airport who demand US$10 for use of free trolleys provided at the airport for arriving passengers.


Mandala Airline Set for April 2012 Re-launch
Indonesia Ministry of Transportation to Issue Air Operating Certificate to Mandala Airlines in February in Preparation for April Start-Up

Bisnis Indonesia reports that the Ministry of Transportation will issue a formal Air Operating Certificate (AOC) to Mandala Airlines in the second week of February 2012.

The head of communications for the Ministry, Bambang S. Ervan, confirmed that the AOC would be issued in conjunction with the arrival in Indonesia of aircraft to be operated by Mandala Airlines.

Mandala Airlines, resurrected from near bankruptcy, is now owned by Saratoga Capital (51%), Tiger Airways Holdings Ltd (33%) and the remaining shares are held by creditors of the airline.

Ministry officials confirmed that the needed AOC would be issued to Mandala in February with formal operations by the airline expected to commence in April 2012. According to Ministry officials, the first aircraft of the Mandala fleet – an Airbus A320 – has already arrived in Indonesia.

Mandala was granted a reprieve by the government when its operating license was extended for four months on January 1, 2012, in order to allow the carrier to get its business affairs in order.

The investment manager of Saratoga Capital, Devin Wirawan, confirmed to the press that Mandala is preparing to meet national regulations that mandate a minimum of 10 aircraft be operated by every Indonesian air carrier, stipulating that the airline must own 5 of the subject aircraft.

Said Wirawan: “There are now two Airbus 320 aircraft that will arrive in Indonesia when the AOC is issued. If we brought the aircraft earlier than that we would incur parking fees.”

He said the routes flown by Mandala when it resumed operations would not vary substantially from the routes operated prior to its closure. Mandala formerly flew 16 domestic routes and four international routes.

The new plans for international flights by Mandala indicate that the reformed airline will concentrate it international flights on Singapore.

The Kiwis are Coming!
Air New Zealand to Resume Bali Service on a Seasonal Basis

After terminating flights to Bali in the 1990s, Air New Zealand is poised to resume flights between Auckland and Denpasar on a seasonal basis.

Scheduled to operate during the peak season of June-October, the twice-weekly flights commence on June 20, 2012, using Boeing 767-300 configured to carry 228 passengers.

Rob Fyfe, chief executive officer of Air New Zealand, is confident the new service will be popular with the public, saying, “our flight time of eight and a half hours is a significant improvement on the indirect services offered by competitors that can involve long layovers and a total journey time of at least 14 and sometimes more than 24 hours.”

The new service is subject to government and regulatory approval.


An Impasse at the Bali Underpass
A Land Dispute Threatens Construction of Bali’s Simpang Siur Underpass Project.

Radar Bali reports that the development of the Simpang Siur underpass project may be complicated by an ongoing dispute over the acquisition of a single remaining parcel of land necessary for the construction of the project deemed critical to reducing traffic congestion in Bali.

An unnamed source told Radar Bali, ‘the project cannot be fully commenced, there’s still land ensnarled in a dispute.”

This fact was confirmed by the vice-chairman of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), Ketut Suwandhi, who told Radar Bali a single piece of land remains in dispute.

Although a Rp. 1.2 billion (US$133,000) price per are (100 square meters) price was agreed, the ownership of the subject parcel is being litigated between contesting heirs.

The government team assigned to acquire private lands to allow the underpass project to go ahead is now compelled to wait for the courts to decide who is the rightful owner of the subject parcel of land.

Those in charge of the project are seeking a legal means to place the purchase price in a secure deposit that can be awarded once the courts determine who is the rightful owner of the parcel of land.

Efforts by Radar Bali to contact the head of the the National Roadway Construction Agency for the province, Susalit Alius, for comment were unsuccessful.

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has designated the completion of the Bali underpass project as critical to the APEC Summit set to be held in Bali in 2013.

Delisting Cultural Icons in Bali
Some Bali Tour Operators Boycotting Tanah Lot and Uluwatu Temples in Protest Over ‘Excessive’ Hikes in Admission Fees

The Jakarta Post reports that some members of Bali Chapter of the Indonesian Association of Travel Agents (ASITA) are not including stops at the iconic Tanah Lot Temple in Tabanan and the Uluwatu Temple in south Bali in protest over “unreasonably excessive” hikes in admission prices.

Bali’s ASITA chairman, Aloysius Purwa said a number of his association’s members are substituting other destinations, refusing to accept the 100% increase in admission charges at the two sites. Foreigners now pay Rp. 30,000 (US$3.33) to view Pura Tanah Lot, twice the previous price of admission. Meanwhile, the Uluwatu temple perched on a vertical cliff over the Indian Ocean charges Rp. 20,000 (US@2.22) to foreign visitors, nearly three time the old rate of Rp. 7,500 paid for entry.
nted with ASITA not being consulted before the hike was introduced, Purwa warned: “Both attractions had a permanent place on our itineraries alongside several other attractions in Badung and Tabanan, such as Taman Ayun, Ulundanu and Sangeh. Now, the case will be different.”

When ASITA learned of plans to increase the admission fees late last year, the association formally wrote to the regencies asking to discuss the matter. Purwa said his association’s request for prior consultation were not dignified by an answer.


Landslides in Buleleng
Two Major Roadways in Buleleng Regency of Bali Disrupted by Rains and Landslides

Heavy rains over the Galungan holidays has caused landslides and road subsidence on two major roads in the Buleleng regency of Bali.
  • A landslide on Jalan Raya Singaraja – Almapura at the village of Pucung near Tejakula is impeding traffic along the main coastal artery in Bali’s northeast. The shoulder of the road collapsed, reducing the width of the road by 50%
  • Another landslide and falling trees on the main road connecting Jalan Raya Seririt and Pupuan at the village of Subuk, in the Busungbui district disrupted north-south traffic on the road connecting Tabanan with Buleleng. Half of the road along a 15 meter stretch collapsed into a ravine causing traffic to come to crawl while two-way traffic carefully negotiated the remaining narrow piece of roadway.
Efforts are underway to repair the affected pieces of highway as quickly as possible.

 


In Support of Creativity
Denpasar Officials Provide Financial Support for Nyepi Celebrations

The municipal government of Denpasar, the capital of Bali, has allocated Rp. 1.46 billion (US$162,000) to be divided amongst 419 community youth groups (Sekaa Teruna-Teruni – STT).

The resulting individual allocations of Rp. 3.5 million (US$389) will be used to construct Ogoh-Ogoh displays as part of Bali’s celebrations leading up to “Nyepi” - the day of absolute silence that ushers in a New Year on the Balinese calendar.

Hari Suci Nyepi Tahun Baru Saka 1934, which falls on March 23, 2012, is preceded by a night of Mardi Gras-like revelry in which elaborate papier mâché floats are paraded on Bali’s streets before they are abandoned, often set ablaze, before people retreat to their homes for a 24-hour period of reflective meditation in which all activity is prohibited.

The ogoh-ogoh floats involved days and nights of dedicated work by villagers who create large figures depicting monster, daemons and stage celebrities.

Fueled by copious quantities of intoxicating arak, young men, in traditional Balinese dress, carry the floats on their shoulders, sometimes resulting in contentious stand-offs when ogoh-ogohs from competing banjars encounter each other on Bali's narrow streets.

While no funds were provided to STTs in 2011, this year’s allocation reflects a new national political will in which tourism and the creative sectors are linked.

 


Suffer the Little Children
Two Infants Die in North Bali Landslides

A landslide in north Bali on Saturday night, February 4, 2012, has killed two small children, just one week after another landslide in front of the Taman Ayun Park in south Bali killed another child.

The latest victims were Ni Luh Sumita Sari (1.5 years) and Puspitasari (6 months) were buried under an avalanche of soil that swept over their home in Dasong at the village of Pancasari in Buleleng.

The children’s parents, Ketut Rata (34) and Ni Luh Suami (32) suffered burns and broken bone in the disaster that took the lives of their two children.

The landslide happened at 7:30 p.m. after an entire day of relentless heavy rain across the Buleleng region.
