In seeming response to criticism from Bali's governor that Bali's airport is being over-commercialized, Indonesia's Minister of Transportation, Djusman Safei Djamal has assured Bali that only a maximum of 30% of the entire airport will be used for commercial pursuits. During a visit to Bali, the Transportation Minister reminded the management of Bali's Airport, PT Angkasa Pura, not to commercialize a planned 40% of the airport.

As reported by, the Minister's rebuke to the airport's management followed the rejection by Bali's governor of redevelopment plans for the airport that would dedicate 40% of the airport space to commercial leases. As reported on, Bali's governors is involved in a verbal tug-of-war with the Manager of the Bali Airport authority over current plans for the design of the revamped airport. Governor Pastika has threatened to refuse building permits for the remodeling if, in his opinion, the new design puts commercialization before efficiency and customer convenience. The governor is also demanding that Balinese architectural touches must be incorporated into any final design.

Djusman Safei told the press in Bali that the governor's wishes must be made a prime consideration and that, in any case, current regulations limit the amount of commercialized space to no more than 30% of the entire area of the airport with all remaining area dedicated to "traffic management".

The entire area of Bali's airport complex following the planned redevelopment will cover 100,000 square meters.
