High Flying Politicians

Bali Airport Managers Predicting Surge in Passengers as Indonesia Enters a Political Year

(1/18/2014) Angkasa Pura I, the managers of Baliís Ngurah Rai International Airport, is projecting a surge in passenger traffic in connection with the legislative and presidential elections taking place in April and July of 2014.

An Angkasa Pura spokesman told The Bali Post: ďA political year will certainly have an impact on the aviation industry. Many politicians will be campaigning in other regions and be attending political meetings and rallies Ė meaning the number of trips will increase.

The airport spokesman said that an increase in charter flights is also expected as part of the surge in traffic tied to the elections. To meet the growing demand for charter flights, Bali now has sixteen slots for non-commercial private jets to park in a new apron area create on the southern side of the main runway.
