(2/3/2008)

The Friday, February 1, 2008, torrential downpours that flooded access roads to Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and brought the Nation's Capital air hub to a standstill also disrupted passenger movements at Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport. An estimated 932 passengers spent extended periods lasting until the evening hours at the Bali airport waiting for their flights to depart.

The Airport Duty Manager at Bali's airport, Muchedi, confirmed the interruption to smooth flight services caused by the rains in Jakarta but assured flight schedules would gradually improve by late Friday evening with the late afternoon re-opening of the Jakarta airport.

Muchedi explained that while there was no problem tied directly to Bali's ability to land and depart aircraft, the rains in Jakarta had caused Bali-bound flights from Jakarta to cancel or delay their flights, effectively delaying the onward flights of those same aircraft from Bali.

The Jakarta-bound flight operations of Lion Air, Indo Air Asia, Mandala, Sriwijaya Air, Adam Air and Garuda were all disrupted due to the poor weather in Jakarta.

Because of heavy rains at the Jakarta airport a total of 54 flights on their inbound legs to the City were diverted to 5 alternative airports in the region. One flight en-route from Bali to Jakarta was ordered to divert to Surabaya's Juanda airport as the result of the temporary closing of the Soekarno-Hatta Airport. Bali flight operations gradually resumed to normal following the re-opening of Jakarta's airport at 3:30 p.m. Bali time.

An average of 30 flights depart for Jakarta each day from Bali's airport.
