Bali's sole airport - Ngurah Rai International Airport underwent a significant increase in passenger totals on December 23, 2010, with passenger numbers expected to remain very strong until New Years Eve, December 31, 2010.
The holiday travel command post maintained at the airport during this period estimates that 9,600 domestic tourists landed in Bali on December 23, 2010, increasing to 10,832 the following day of Christmas Eve. These totals compare with the normal number of 6,000 to 7,000 people who arrive daily on domestic flights into Bali.
The sudden increase in domestic holidaymakers was facilitated by extra flights laid on to meet holiday demand by several national air carriers.
Airport officials expect the domestic travel rush to reach its peak on December 28 and 29, 2010.
