Public service at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport was disrupted on Wednesday, November 28, 2012, at 2:20 pm when a power interruption left most of the airport in the dark.

The Wednesday power outage followed a similar power failure on Monday, two days earlier.

The Bali Post said the black out caused some degree of panic among passengers who became concerned that their departing flight would be cancelled.

Hendrawan, a passenger scheduled to fly Denpasar to Surabaya, said the electricity was out for around 20 minutes resulting in some degree of unrest in the terminal that only subsided when power was returned.

A tour guide, Aridus, who was at the airport meeting a group of arriving passengers, sounded a similar note of. He despaired the power failure, saying: “It’s really unfortunate that an airport of the standard of Ngurah Rai can experience blackouts. Such failures, when they do occur, should last only a few minutes, but this outage gives a bad impression (about the airport) to tourists in attendance at the airport.”

The spokesperson for the airport’s management, Sherly Yunita of Angkasa Pura I, confirmed the power outage, but insisted that flight schedules had not been disrupted. “The moment the power failed generator sets kicked in preventing any threat to safety or flight operations,” Sherly explained.

Sherly did not, however, provide any explanation as to the underlying cause of the power outage.

The power failure two days earlier on Monday, November 26, 2012, took place at around 10:25 am. The first outage lasted for 15 minutes, causing confusion and distress to passengers waiting to board domestic and international flights.
