The State News Agency Antara reports that Bali’s renovated Ngurah Rai International Airport will be able to accommodate all the large number of VVIP private jets expected in Bali for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit (APEC) set to be held during the first week of October 2013.
The Commander of the Denpasar Air Force Wing headquartered at Ngurah Rai International Airport, Colonel Sugiharto Prapto Waluyo, said, “All VVIP aircraft, in accordance with Presidential instructions, must be parked at Ngurah Rai Airport.”
Organizers in Bali now have 19 delegations registered as bringing private aircraft to Bali to attend the summit.
Waluyo said the VVIP aircraft will be parked in Bali due to the expansion of apron areas now underway that include parking for 14 narrow-body airplanes.
Some delegations, including the U.S. president, travel in wide-body jumbo aircraft. The larger aircraft will be parked at the north end of the airport.
