In anticipation of a rush of holiday travelers over the Idul Fitri holidays, some 58 extra flights will operate into and out of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport from August 24-28, 2012.
Airport officials say the 58 additional flights are needed to handle daily flow-throughs of passengers that can reach totals as high as 21,000 over the Muslim New Year period. During non-holiday periods the Bali airport handles an average 16,000 passengers.
The routes experiencing the heaviest traffic during the coming holidays are flights operating to and from Jakarta, Surabaya and Yogyakarta.
Passengers during this period are comprised of both non-Muslim holidaymakers and Muslims traveling to spend the holiday period with family and friends.
