On Final Approach for North Bali

Minister Wacik Hints on Possible Location for the Buleleng International Airport in north Bali.

(10/14/2011) reports that Indonesia’s Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik, is not prepared to divulge the exact location of a planned airport for Buleleng in north Bali. However, while officiating at a festival at Lake Batur, Kintamani, Wacik hinted to the press that the Bali’s second major air gateway will be located "either behind or alongside" Mt Batur.

Responding to reporters’ questions on the location for the Buleleng International Airport, Jero Wacik refused to reveal the exact location. However, while presenting a speech at the opening of the Lake Batur Festival, Wacik told his listeners that a new airport would be built either behind or beside Mount Batur.

Dropping a clue, Wacik said, “the economy and tourism surrounding Batur and Kintamani, Bangli will continue to progress because behind Mount Batur will soon stand a new airport.”

He went on to say that once the exact location is fixed the land acquisition process could commence, paving the way for the construction of the airport.

The Minister said design work has already begun on the new airport.

The Minister said he was unable to give the exact location of the new airport in order to prevent land speculators from misusing such information.

Speculation places the new airport on the north side of Mount Batur, somewhere between Kutambahan and Tejakula

Wacik said construction on the new airport would begin before the end of the year.
