Keeping Bali’s Air Gateway Balinese

Bali Legislators Call on Managers of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport to Maintain a Distinctive Balinese Appearance
PT Angkasa Pura I (PT API), the Management of Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport, now has all the necessary licenses and permits to proceed with the reclamation on the western end of the Airport’s runway to create additional taxiway and parking space.

PT AP I in a meeting with legislators at the Bali House of Representatives (DPR-Bali) heard lawmakers’ call for the Airport to use Balinese architectural finishes on all exterior and interior elements of the Island's sole gateway.

As reported by Metrobali.com, Yanus Suprayogi, general manager of PT AP I and I Gusti Agung Sudarsana, the head of the Provincial Transportation Office, heard Bali lawmakers provide input on the management of the airport and the need to preserve a Balinese identity in all aspects of the facility.

A decision was made to draft a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Province and PT AP I to ensure Balinese architectural elements are a mainstay of the Airport.

In the reclamation effort PT AP I has also promised to salvage and remove to new locations all living coral and mangrove flora.

Separately, Yanus Suprayogi said PT AP I would make every effort to minimize the impact of the reclamation work at Bali’s Airport.
