• Nyepi, Bali Airport Service Stay Maximum

    Director General of Air Transportation Agus Santoso requested services to passengers affected by the closure of I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali to honor the Nyepi holiday, should remain maximized. Maximum service should be provided not only to passengers at the airport, but also at other airports affected by the nature of the connecting flights networked between airports.

    To that end, all operators and regulators of airlines such as airport managers, airlines and airport authorities should cooperate and provide passengers with a persuasive and sympathetic understanding to anticipate undesirable matters.

    “As a result of the closure of Ngurah Rai Airport for one day, there are many flights affected. That is about 410 flights consisting of 217 domestic flights and 193 international flights. This should be anticipated especially related to its convenience so as not to cause negative things, “said Agus.

    Actually related to the airport closure to honor Nyepi Day has been informed well by both airport managers, AirNav or regulators so that airlines can anticipate by not opening flights to and from Bali. The appeal issued by this regulator, according to Agus only anticipate if there are passengers who are in the airport at the time Nyepi so still need good service.

    According to Agus, for domestic passengers is estimated to have known the closure of this airport because it has been done every year during Nyepi holiday. But for international passengers, there is likely not much to know about this because it is a local wisdom in Indonesia that does not exist in the country of the passengers.

    However Agus Said that handling related to the comfort of domestic and international passengers should be treated equally. Especially for passengers affected at Ngurah Rai Airport, handling to passengers should also be coordinated with local officials and local customs. So that handling can be more persuasive and sympathetic and does not violate the rules of the region and customs in Bali.

    Agus also stated that until today there has been no demand for additional flights before and after the Nyepi holiday. Domestic and international flights to and from Bali are still normal.

    Nyepi Day will be celebrated by Hindus in Indonesia on Sunday, March 18, 2018. On that day, Hindus should not work, not to travel, not to light a fire and should not have fun.
