Beritadewata.com and detik.com reports that between 10-20 flights operating from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport suffered delays on Sunday, January 5, 2014, when the Island’s gateway suffered the latest in a series of prolonged power blackouts.

Varying reports give differing versions of the length and severity of the power outage, which began at 7:55 am. Detik.com claims the power failure persisted, at least in part, for five hours when full power was returned to the airport at 12:55 pm. Meanwhile, Beritadewata.com quotes the general manager of PT Angkasa Pura I, the airport’s managers, as saying full power was returned by 10:00 am.

The power outage is another in a long series of outages, the previous outage occurring on December 10, 2013 when Bali’s sole air gateway went dark for 30 minutes. After that outage, a spokesman for PT Angkasa Pura I claimed any future blackouts would be immediately corrected by a back-up power supply.

A member of Commission V of the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR) has weighed in on the latest outage, saying the situation at the airport has become an embarrassment.

DPR member Muhidin Mohamad told detik.com: “I deeply regret this. This is terribly embarrassing, an international airport experiencing such situations. The airport must be ready at all times and power resumed a couple of seconds after any power failure.”

Muhidin called on the Ministry of Transportation to investigate the incident to ensure such a situation is never repeated in the future.
