PT Angkasa Pura I, the State-owned company that manages 13 airports, 2 cargo warehouses and air traffic service centers, has announced plans to end the practice of collecting separately the Airport Service Charge (ASC) from passengers departing on international and domestic flights in Bali and the other airports it operates.
As reported by the State New Agency Antara, the CEO of Angkasa Pura I, Tommy Soetomo, said on Monday, June 25, 2012 that the Airport Service Charge will soon be included in the passenger ticket price to be subsequently paid by the airline directly to the airport authority.
According to Soetomo, the system will first be introduced for passengers flying on Garuda Indonesia and later expanded to other carriers.
Angkasa Pura says the change in procedure will take place later this year.
Angkasa Pura Pura I operates the airport authority for Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.
