PT Ankasa Pura I, the airport authority for Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport, has yet to agree to a request form Garuda Indonesia to be allowed to create a dedicated terminal for the exclusive use of the national flag carrier's domestic and international passengers.
As reported by Bisnis.com, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed in late 2011 announcing Garuda's desire to establish a dedicated terminal at Bali's airport to better serve their passengers. The request to be allowed to establish an exclusive Garuda Terminal facility was delivered by Garuda's CEO, Emirsyah Satar, to PT Angkasa Pura I during a meeting between the two state-owned companies at Nusa Dua late last year.
Garuda's wants to create an exclusive and dedicated passenger terminal, departure area, arrival area, immigration clearance area, transit lounge and access areas to the airline's aircraft parking bays,
The spokesman for the airport development project, Hary Budi Walyo, said that the request from Garuda was under review.
Garuda Indonesia currently operates dedicated terminals for their flights at terminals 2E and 2F at Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.
