PT Angkasa Pura I (PAP), the State-owned company that manages Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport, recently outlined the major renovation and upgrading work at Bali's only airport soon to get underway.

Quoted in Beritabali.com, the General Manager of PAP, Heru Legowo, said the total cost of the planned modifications at Bali's airport is budgeted at Rp. 1.6 trillion (US$160 million). When completed, the new domestic and international passenger terminals will cover 120,000 square meters with the capacity to handle 20 million visitors each year. The current terminals cover only 15,000 square meters and must handle nearly 9 million visitors in a single year, According to Legowo, Bali's present airport is only suitable for handling 4 million visitors each year, meaning that in its present configuration Bali's airport is no longer viable.

Legowo said the renovation program that will begin in early 2010 will require 30 months to complete and may well represent the final upgrade for Bali's airport which has run out of land for any future expansion.

The present expansion will require the leveling of hundreds of housing units once used by airport staff, a post office and an animal quarantine facility. "Of the 176 staff housing units we have, almost all will be demolished," explained the Deputy Technical Director of PAP, Ketut Reneng Armika.

In addition to enlarging the terminal, the parking area at the airport will also be augmented to permit the parking of 5,000 vehicles. A separate parking area for motorcycles will also be constructed.

In anticipation of the larger numbers to be handled by Bali's international and domestic air terminal over the coming 3 years, Heru said he hoped the provincial government of Bali will begin to consider upgrading road access to the airport in order to handle increased traffic flows.
