No Injuries as Airport Bus Catches Fire in Bali

Fourth Fire in Five Months on a Bus at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport

A bus used to transport passengers between the passenger terminal and aircraft at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport caught on fire while it was parked in Bay #8 at mid-day on Friday, January 10, 2020.

Fortunately, the smoking bus that later burst into flames, had no passengers on board at the time of the incident.

As reported by NusaBali, the fire is being linked to a short-circuit in the electrical system of the bus used for apron service at Bali’s airport.

This is the fourth time in five months that a bus has caught fire at the Airport.

The fire on January 10th follows a fire on a bus operated by Gapura Angksa on September 6, 2019; a fire on a bus owned by Sriwijaya Airlines on November 4, 2019; and a fire on a Lion Air bus on November 12, 2019.

Apron and security workers who saw the burning bus respond with fire extinguishers and prevent the blaze from spreading. By 1:00 pm the fire was under control.

The small blaze was limited to the structure of the bus and did not spread to the nearby terminal.

Flight operations were undisturbed by the incident.

The Airport Authority is investigating the blaze.
