Runway Success
Bali’s Airport Ranked the Best in the Asia Pacific Region

Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport has been named the "Best Airport in the Asia Pacific" in the category of air gateways handling between 15 and 25 million passengers annually.

As reported by NusaBali, the general manager of Bali’s Airport, Rai Yanus Suprayogi, confirmed the most recent in a long string of awards given to Bali’s airport on Wednesday, March 7, 2018.

The award was presented by the Airport Council International (ACI) in the ASQ Awards for 2017.

In 2015 and 2016, the Ngurah Rai International Airport was ranked as the third best airport in its size category.

In the latest ACI Awards, Bali’s Airport earned distinction in three categories. First, the Airport was named the best airport of its size in the Asia-Pacific region (15-25 million passengers annually). Second, Ngurah Rai was designated the best airport internationally in its size category. And, third, Bali's air gateways was named second best airport in the Asia Pacific handling more than 2 million passengers per years.

The awards are presented based on 34 separate criteria that include airport access, check in procedures, security screening, shopping and restaurant outlets, and toilet facilities.

“We are both proud and thankful. This is a birthday present that we present to Angkasa Pura I (the Airport Authority). The challenges we face at the I Gust Ngurah Rai Airport are increasingly difficult due to the continually growing number of passengers and the wide variety of travelers handled. But with good synergy among every component of the airport community, we remain optimistic that we can meet the challenges and improve even further. For this reasons, I express my thanks to all our working partners for their participation and active support in giving the best service to those who use the I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport,” explained Yanus.


Phone it In
Bali Airport Immigration Office Launches New Smartphone-based Monitoring System for Foreign Visitors

The Immigration office at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport has launched a new Smartphone-based application to assist the Government in monitoring foreigners visiting or residing in Indonesia.

NusaBali says the system named APOA (Aplikasi Pengawasan Orang Asia) is being tested at the Ngurah Rai Immigration Office. The head of the information section, Putu Astina Purwanti, explained on Thursday, March 8, 2018, that APOA has been developed by a number of parties to facilitate and ease the reporting requirements for foreigners staying in Bali.

While nationwide the Directorate General of Immigration already operates a web-based reporting system, the APOA system is initially only available at the Ngurah Rai Immigration Office. Immigration officials are now familiarizing the new system to the public, including local accommodation providers.

“We have received a great deal of input from the public on matters related to the monitoring of foreigners in Bali. Actually, a process for handling complaints is in place, but on a website. In the development of APOA ‘next generation’ utilizing Smartphones, an MRZ (machine readable zone) auto capture. The system works by photographing the passport when a tourist visitor checks in or checks out of his or her accommodation. Yesterday, we held a meeting with the team charged with monitoring foreigners to familiarize them with APOA,” said Astina.

The APOA system is expected to ease the reporting requirements for remote and small boarding houses.


Pre-flight Inspection
Power Banks, Matches and Gas Lighters Now Banned When Boarding Flights in Bali

Power banks, wooden matches and gas lighters are now classified as "dangerous goods" that cannot be carried into the passenger cabin on commercial flights leaving Bali.

Nusa Bali quotes the head of the Airport Authority for Bali and Nusa Tenggara, Herson, on Sunday, March 4, 2018, who said the prohibition follows the issuance of an instruction issued by the Director General of Civil Aviation and is in conformance with stipulations published by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and International Aviation Transport Association (IATA).

Herson explained that the prohibition on brining matches and power banks into the passenger cabin of an airplane is connected to past incidents in which these items have caught fire while a plane was in flight.

Herson said an in-flight fire occurred in China when a powerbank exploded during a flight.

The ban on power banks is not absolute. Power banks rated below 100Wh can be carried on a flight. Powe rbanks rated between 100Wh-160Wh must be approved in advance by the airlines. Power banks with a capacity exceeding 160wh are absolutely forbidden inside the passenger cabin.
 


Oxymoron: ‘Nyepi' Activities
Hotels Reminded to Keep it Dark, Quiet and Very Low Key on Bali’s Official Day of Silence

Balipost.com reports that hotels in Bali are allowed to promote “Nyepi Packages” to tourist, providing the accommodation packages over the Island’s official "day of silence" does not contain elements of merriment and party-making (hura-hura).

Tourist should also be introduced to the guidelines of catur brata penyepian. As explained on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, by the chairman of Commission I of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), Ketut Tama Tenaya: “For instance, (tourists) should turn off lights and not be allowed to go outside the hotel's property boundaries in order to demonstrate that it is ‘Nyepi’ in Bali. Let them 'feel catur brata penyepian.' If guest are prepared to enjoy ‘nyepi’ in this way – be our guests! It will be great.”

Catur Bratha Penyepian that comes into effect from 6:00 am on Saturday, March 17, 2018, until sunrise the following day stipulates: Amati gni – no open fires or flames; Amati lelanguan – no pleasurable activities; Amati karya – no work or labor; and Amati Lelungan – no journeys.

Tama said guests who fail to follow the traditions of Nyepi should receive strong sanctions. If hotels organize Nyepi packages that invite guests to leave the hotel grounds or create festive activities inside the hotel, such as disco parties, special dining, or organized parties they are then in violation of the stipulations of Nyepi. Tama posed the question that if Bali is able to close its airport, then hotels should therefore be able to follow the rules of Nyepi or face, he threatened, the loss of their operating licenses.

Tama said he hoped the management of hotels in Bali will introduce an understanding of Nyepi – the day of silence, to their guests. The Bali lawmaker also called on local community watch members (pacalang) to take an active role in ensuring hotels respect and observe the customs of Nyepi.

Tama called on Bali’s Governor Made Mangku Pastika to revoke the licenses of hotel that organize parties and merriment during Nyepi.

“Please sell ‘Nyepi packages’ but don’t make parties and festivities. In the past there has been a misconception that people can avoid 'Nyepi' by checking into a hotel where activities and parties will be arranged for them. Loud music, bright lamps – I ask that the situation be made to conform to 'Nyepi' traditions. It would be beautiful if everyone followed 'Nyepi,' including the large hotels,” said Tama.

Governor Pastika announced that hotels must respect local traditions, culture and the religious values of the Balinese and nothing must be done to detract from the very unique character of the Island of Bali and its people.


Will Bali Emails Bounce on Nyepi?
Questions Emerge Over Plans to Turn Off Cellular Network and Internet in Bali for 24-Hours During Nyepi

The recommendation cum instruction from Bali’s administrative, police, military and religious leaders to turn off cellular and Internet service from 6:00 am on Saturday morning, March 17, 2018 until 6:00 am the following day has precipitated a polemic among those in opposition or in support of the new Nyepi rule.

Quoted by Balipost.com, I Gede Pawana, the chairman of the Gunung Agung Association (Pasebaya Gunung Agung) comprised of villages surrounding the Mt. Agung volcano, questioned the decision to terminate cellular and Internet service for 24-hours that Pawana says will complicate mitigation plans. Mount Agung still remains at the second highest level of volcanic alert and is under a round-the-clock Internet-based system.

While Pawana does not want to be portrayed as opposing Island policy, at the same tie he does not want the work of volunteers from his Association disturbed as they deal with the volcano still under a Level-II (siaga) alert status and have them face the risk of receiving very little notice of a possible future eruption because of Internet and telecommunication service interruptions.

“All our information (about the volcano) is Internet-based,” explained Pawana.

Meanwhile, the chief of the data and information for National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), Puro Nugroho, told the press that disaster prevention measures in place on Mount Agung would be disrupted if Bali’s Internet system was shut down for 24-hours. He said his agency (BNPB), the Weather and Climatology Agency (BMKG) and the Disaster Mitigation Agency for Geological Disasters (PVMBG), National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas), the Mount Agung Association (Pasebaya) and other agencies all use the Internet in performing their jobs.

The plans to turn off hand phones and Internet could also impact some of the following areas:
  • Contact with police, fire and ambulance services.
  • Automated earthquake and tsunami warnings programmed into people's Smart phones.
  • CCTV security systems protecting homes, banks, and businesses that are connected to Internet-based monitoring systems.
  • Internet-based medical health monitoring systems that keep patients in touch with doctors and medical centers.


Bollywood Comes to Baliwood?
Bali Seeks Funds to Host IndianFilm Industry Conference

The chairman of the Badung Regency Tourism Promotion Board (BPPD), I Gusti Ngurah Rai Suryawijaya, said Bali was prepared to host the Indian film industry at the Bollywood Awards 2018 proposed to be held in Bali.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Suryawijaya said, “if this can take place in Bali it will represent an extraordinary promotion opportunity for Bali.”

Suryawijaya says the annual Indian Film Academy held in a different location each year can bring 2,500 artists and film industry workers to Bali.

The 2017 Festival was held in New York City on July 13-15, 2017.

The location for the 2018 event has yet to be formally announced with discussions reportedly underway with the event’s organizers.

Suryawijaya, who also serves as the chairman for Badung Regency Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) is seeking financial support from the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism to lure the Indian Film Industry event to Bali with the organizers said to need US$80 million in financial support.

“They have put forth a proposal, the cost is quite high. But we desire that the Ministry has will help together with other sponsors,” Suryawijaya explained.

More direct flights from India to Bali are also needed to make such an event a success.

A Land to Remember
Art Exhibition by I Putu Bonuz Sudiana at Griya Santrian Art Gallery Through 29 April 2018

The Griya Santrian Art Gallery in Sanur Bali located at the Griya Santrian Beach Resort and Spa will host a solo painting exhibition by I Putu Bonuz Sudiana.

Opened on Friday, March 2, the exhibition will run through Saturday, April 29, 2018, open daily from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm.

bition, entitled “A Land to Remember – Recalling the Land of my Birth,” will evoke stories and anecdotes, both sad and joyful, from the Artist’s birthplace of Nusa Penida.

iana, who is also known as "Bonuz" was born in Nusa Penida in 1972 – the island located a short distance off Bali’s southeast coast. At the time of Bonuz’s birth, Nusa Penida was a vastly different place than it is today. Filled with fields of grass and subject to annual draughts, Nusa Penida suffered extremes of weather. The island had a rustic charm that was both mystical and magical after sunset as it bathed in starlight and ocean breezes. Local people lived from fishing and cultivating seaweed.

ntervening years, Nusa Penida has become an active center of tourism playing host to villas, restaurants, café and other elements of the local tourism industry.

d development has been the source of inevitable social disruption and upheaval. Open fields have disappeared, trees have been felled, and tradition architecture dismantled to make way for more modern buildings.

from a childhood spent on Nusa Penida and the nervousness at the changes enveloping his birthplace have provided the stimulus for the current exhibition of abstract works of art. Bonuz’s paintings are dynamic and strongly emotive. Strong lines and powerful colors reflect the artist’s unsettled soul born of growing up in a in a place under siege by the forces of modernity as he watched nature fall victim to seemingly uncaring development.

ark colors in my painting speak of the destruction of nature my conscience’s witness to a number of things in conflict with my heart. When I am unable to express my frustration and sadness in words, the lines and colors of my paintings are my choice of expression,” said Bonuz.

Don’t Fence the Balinese In!
Voters Demand More Park Space and Beach Access from Gubernatorial Candidate

In the course of Bali’s ongoing gubernatorial race, the public are using campaign meetings with candidates to voice their concerns and dissatisfaction with the current public-use land situation in Bali.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the thousands attending a recent rally for candidate Wayan Koster voiced their unhappiness on the lack of land in Denpasar set aside for social and recreational activities in the midst of the city’s rapid development and the difficulty of gaining access to local beachfronts for Balinese ceremonies.

Koster, who is standing for governor in the June 27th elections, said that the Province of Bali holds substantial tracts of land in Bali’s capital of Denpasar that could be diverted for building banjar halls, temples, community health centers, and the construction of schools. He promised that, if elected, land would immediately granted by the province to such public projects.

The candidate also said that he would develop the Padanggalak beach area to be used to provide beach access for religious ceremonies. He pledged to approach the Ministry of Forestry to secure beach access through protected forests to coastlines in order to be used for religious practice.


Free Market Competition Takes a Back Seat in South Bali
Bualu Compels Hotels at Nusa Dua to Agree to Block Online Transportation. But is this Legal?

DenPost reports that the three traditional villages in South Bali -  Bualu, Peminge and Kampial in the sub-district of Benoa at Nusa Dua have put forth for signature a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with local hotels at the Indonesian Tourism Development Corporation Complex (ITDC) that will prohbit hotels from allowing online transport operators to operate at Nusa Dua.

The MoU was presented at a meeting coordinated by the District Chief of Benoa, Wayan Solo, held in the Wantilan hall of ITDC.

Although the MoU has yet to be signed by all parties, Wayan Solo has declared the agreement has power with immediate effect. Under the still-to-be-signed agreement there are areas of Nusa Dua that will be declared off-limit to online transportation operators picking up passengers. The online operators will, however, be allowed to drop off passengers in these areas.

The rational given by Wayan Solo is that the security of hotel guests can be guaranteed by limiting the movement of online taxis, allowing drivers living in the area to be called to account when complaints over security or safety are received.

Solo said he hoped that local taxi operators would register under one of the conventional taxi operators serving Nusa Dua.

What sanctions will be imposed on online drivers who disregard the MoU remains unclear and is still under discussion. These matters and the actual implementation of the new rules are still under discussion with tourism and transportation officials in Bali.

Hotels in Nusa Dua are being asked to install banners and distribute pamphlets to their guests explaining the "no online taxi" policy.

Meanwhile, Made Gunawan, who represents online drivers living in the Nusa Dua region said his group has some 40 members who serve online requests from guests and earn their income in doing so. He insists that his drivers should also be allowed to serve the public staying in Nusa Dua.

Indonesia’s Anti-Monopoly Law


It is unclear why some hotels remain reluctant to sign the MoU fashioned by the District Chief at Benoa.

Some, in fact, suggest that the MoU between the hotels and the Benoa district represents a violation of The Anti Monopoly and Fair Trade Act No. 5 of 1999 that carries hefty fines and penalties for those entering agreements that limit free trade and access to markets.

The areas of concern under the 1999 Anti-monopoly law include:
  • Chapter III, Article 4, (Subsection 1) that expressly outlaws agreements between businesses to control services in such a way as to limit competition or (subsection 2) that seeks to forbid agreements between 2 or 4 businesses to control more than 75% of the market for a product or service.
  • Chapter III, Section III, Article 9 forbids entering into agreements between businesses intended to allocate exclusive control over certain market areas for goods or services that effectively result in a monopoly and that limit market access.
  • Chapter III, Section IV, Article 10 (Subsection 1) forbids agreements between business groups that will limit others from participating in the same field of enterprise in order to seize control over a particular market.
  • Chapter III, Section IV, Article 10 (Subsection 2) forbids businesses from entering or instituting agreements that cause losses to competing businesses or limit access of competing businesses to the marketplace.
  • Chapter III, Section VII, Article 13 (Subsections 1 & 2) that forbids collaboration between two or three entities to control the price of products or services that result in an effective monopoly by controlling more than 75% of a market and thereby limiting market access. 
The Anti-monopoly law No. 5 of 1999 provides for strong administrative remedies for violators that include the revocation of businesses licenses and fines of between Rp. 1 billion and Rp. 25 billion.

Under the terms of the anti-monopoly law, any member of the public can bring an action against those deemed to be violating the terms of the law by filing a formal complaint with the Commission on Competitive Practice that must be adjudicated within set limits of time by the Commission.

If, in fact, the MoU put on the table at Nusa Dua is formally found in violation of the Anti-monopoly law this could have far-reaching legal implications, possibly calling into question exclusive transportation agreements in place at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport.

A Future for Bali Traditions in a Contemporary World
By Peter J. Wilson and Made Sidia


Two legendary men of the theatre, Australian Peter J. Wilson and Balinese Made Sidia, have collaborated in creating modern masterpieces that include the longest running stage show in the Island’s history at the Bali Agung Theatre at the Bali Safari & Marine Park and the two recently premiered Balinese Living Arts Shows in Ubud.

While music, dance and the fine arts are a central feature of Balinese society, how is it evolving and adapting amidst the din and competition of the “entertainment on demand” era? How do theatre, art and social comment through the arts have a place within arts that are steeped in a wonderful tradition?

Made Sidia and Peter Wilson have worked together over the past 20 years creating innovative ways of communicating Balinese culture based on centuries old traditions, making the Island’s culture accessible to a new generation of both Indonesian and international audiences.

Not to be missed! Two world-class storytellers and showmen at the height of their artistic powers.

Quoted by NusaBali, the chairman of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Association of Travel Agents (ASITA), I Ketut Ardana, explained that although Bali is a well known international tourism destination, there remains a need to promote the Island to the world.

This year’s edition of the BBTF will be held as Bali prepares to welcome the major International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank Conference coming to Nusa Dua in October where more than 15,000 delegates and press are expected to attend.

Ardana said that BBTF continues to work to receive acknowledgement in the international marketplace of numerous travel fairs. Because of this, preparations for BBTF are now well underway.

The Bali and Beyond Travel Fair will be held at Nusa Dua. In 2017, some 178 buyers from 29 countries attended the event, a total organizer intend to increase in 2018.

Planning a Landing in North Bali
Bali Governor Pledges to Challenge Jakarta’s Rejection of New Airport for North Bali

Despite the apparent rejection by the Central Government of plans to build an airport in northeast Bali, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika has pledged to continue his battle to establish an airport at  Kabuhtambahan, North Bali.

As reported by Beritabali.com. Governor Pastika plans to call the Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, to seek a detailed clarification on press reports that the Airport of the North will not go ahead. According to the Governor, he has yet to receive a formal revocation of the plans for the airport from Jakarta.

According to Pastika, the news of the revocation of the North Bali Airport emanates from a survey conducted by the World Bank and Bali’s Udayana University. That survey focused on Bali’s infrastructure needs and termed the new airport as non-viable.

Pastika sees the construction of a new airport in North Bali as an essential part of a strategic plan for a more equitable distribution of the Island’s wealth to all corners of the Province. Moreover, two companies have been formed to spearhead the airport’s development: PT Bandara Internasional Bali Utara (BIBU) and PT Pembangunan Bali Mandiri (Pembari).

The Governor is upset that the most recent survey conducted by the World Bank and Udayana University had its results published without the coordination of the Provincial Government of Bali. What’s more, the survey has apparently already been circulated widely in Jakarta with no one in Bali apparently privy to the survey’s contents.

The Governor will reportedly attend a formal presentation of the survey in the coming days where he plans to continue to argue for the approval of the North Bali Airport.
