Part of the renovation program of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport includes structural modifications that will allow Airbus A380 aircraft to land and take off from Bali.

The Airbus A380 aircraft is currently the world's largest passenger aricraft in operation.

NusaBali quoted Dahlan Iskan, the Minister for State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) telling that Bali would “be the first airport that can accept the Airbus A380 double-decker aircraft.”

In order for an airport to handle the Airbus A380 Super Jumbo aircraft , the subject airport must have the passenger carrying capacity be contemplated  in its check-in, waiting rooms and baggage handling facilities in order to handle the arrival and departure of more than 600 passengers on a single aircraft.

Angkasa Pura I – the State-owned company that manages Indonesia’s major airports, is targeting that Bali’s newly renovated airport will be able to accommodate the Airbus A380 together with Terminal 3 at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport.

The renovated Bali air gateway will have 12 air bridges for the arrival and departure of aircraft with only one capable of linking to the two-storey Airbus A380 passenger access configuration. The two-storey air bridge will, however, be able to serve other aircraft when not in use for Airbus A380.

Questions remain, however, on whether or not the 2,750-meter runway at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport can facilitate the take-off  requirements of a fully loaded and fully fueled Airbus A380.
