Bisnis Bali reports that renovations at Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport are undergoing a review of the final design elements. Meanwhile, the Badung Regency's House of Representatives (DPRD) are calling for Balinese design characteristics to be incorporated in the final design.

The Chairman of Commission C of the DPRD Badung, Nyoman Satria, recently met with the airport's managers and said. "we hope that as soon as tourists arrive in Bali they will be aware of the fact they are in Bali."

According to Satria, in order to accommodate the desire of the legislators and the people of Bali, the airport must have Balinese architectural elements. "We ask that the architecture of the terminal reflect Bali. We know the cost will be high, but this must be done."

In response to the local legislator's demands, the General Manager of PT Angkasa Pura I (AP-I) at Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport, Heru Legowo, said the final designs for the airport are being reviewed and perfected.

The design team reviewing the plans for the airport includes representatives of the Badung Regency government, the provincial government of Bali and academics. Added Legowo: "After the design team completes its report, the airport authority will make a presentation to the local government. After we get agreement from the Minister of State-Owned Enterprises, only then can the construction begin."

Legowo reminded that the need to rebuild Bali's airport facility has become a pressing need. The current domestic terminal can only handle 1.5 million travelers each year but is forced to accommodate an estimated 4.5 million passengers. "Our domestic terminal is already being overrun by 3 million or 200% above its capacity," said Legowo.

Legowo warned that the Bali airport is in danger of no longer being able to call itself an international facility, pointing out that some Rp. 1.7 trillion (US$179 million) is needed to complete the needed renovations and improvements.
