Australian Press Alleged Attack on Visiting Sportsmen at Kuta Bar

The Western Australian reports that a Perth cricket player was attacked and bashed by bouncers working at the Alleycats bar in Kuta.
 
Aaron Brunner told Seven News in Australia that the incident began when he accidentally knocked over a drink. “I was told I got kicked in the back, went flying into a fence and got a couple of kicks and punches thrown at me when I was on the ground," Brunner explained.

"Anyone who knows me knows I'm not a fighter," he added.

Brunner was visiting Bali on a cricket trip with teammates from Wanneroo Cricket Club.

The report states that bouncers at Alleycats Bar attacked another teammate three days previous to Brunner’s brutalization.

Brunner said, “I won't be going back to Bali ever again, that's for sure.”

The High Cost of Flying Solo
Claims that Bali Airport Charging too Much for Executive Jet Visits

The Indonesia National Air Carriers Association (INACA) is complaining that parking charges for private charter aircraft at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport are too high.
 
INILAH.Com quotes the secretary general of INACA, Tengku Burhanudin, who said on Monday, April 7, 2014, referring to the ground handler dealing with private aircraft in Bali who said:  “I don’t know if it is EkscuZ (the ground handler) who handles charters, we are raising the issue of the the high prices being charged. I have no idea if EkscuZ is a PMA (foreign investment company) or not."
 
Burhaddin’s comments were made during a meeting at the Indonesian Anti-Monopoly Commission (KPPU) in Jakarta.

The KPPU had summoned INACA to provide details regarding allegations of monopolistic practice by PT Angkasa Pura I in its partnership with EkscuZ.

Burhaddin denied having made a formal complaint with KPPU against PT Angkasa Pura,  adding: “This is the result of an investigation of reports in the news media. We have asked, ‘who reported Ekscuz’ and have been told that the investigation is based on an investigation started by KPPU in Surabaya based on reports in the media.”

At the same time Burhaddin did admit that the charges being applied against visiting charter aircraft were too high for services such as boarding steps, luggage handling, vehicles and use of the executive lounge.

Starwood Hotels Bans Shark Fins in All Hotels Worldwide
Starwood Takes Dramatic Step to Help End The Senseless Slaughter of Sharks

Committed to sustainability, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has announced that, beginning July 2014, it will no longer procure shark fin in any of its nearly 1,200 hotels or 1,300 restaurants around the world.

The company has committed to completely eliminating the consumption of shark fin, without exception, in all restaurants and food and beverage services across its global portfolio by year-end. Starwood is the first global hotel operator to take this strong stand and commit to banning the ingredient across its entire portfolio.

Frits van Paasschen, president and chief executive officer of Starwood, said: “At Starwood, we believe economic growth and the well-being of society are inextricably tied to the health of the environment, including the health of the world’s oceans and its inhabitants.  Our worldwide ban on shark fin represents an important, environmentally responsible step to aid in the collective goal of marine preservation. As a company with a collection of hotels that span the globe, Starwood has a unique opportunity to influence travelers and guests worldwide, and to underline the importance of good stewardship of our planet.”

"This is tremendously good news and a beacon of corporate leadership in ocean health," said Peter Seligmann, CEO, chairman and co-founder of Conservation International, a global partner of Starwood's since 2009.  "As apex predators, sharks serve a critical role in maintaining healthy ocean ecosystems, which directly support our fisheries, economies, culture and health. Their value to human well-being is so much greater than the misguided worth of their severed fins. Starwood's company-wide ban on shark fin in each and every one of their properties sends a powerful signal that businesses can be positive change agents in the effort to ensure the responsible use of our planet's natural capital."

The world’s shark population is in severe crisis, with an estimated 100 million sharks lost each year to illegal hunting and poaching, primarily for use in traditional luxury dishes throughout Asia, often at weddings.  Some shark species have suffered population declines of as much as 90 to 99 percent in recent decades.

Since first removing shark fin from its public menus in 2012, Starwood has worked diligently with hotel owners and partners around the world to institute an outright ban on the dish, and has already reduced overall purchases of shark fin within the company’s portfolio by 79% in the past two years. 

In addition to prohibiting the procurement and consumption of shark fin, Starwood has also banned whale and sea turtle, globally, from all of its menus.  The exclusion of threatened seafood species from the company’s food and beverage venues is an important component of Starwood’s Sustainable Food & Beverage Policy.  Initially published in 2012, the “Eat Local, Think Global” program is a collection of principles that guides sustainable food and beverage sourcing, production, consumption and disposal within and across Starwood properties worldwide.

Parceling Out Bali
DHL Express Opens Gateway and Service Center at Bali Airport

DHL Express Indonesia has relocated its national gateway and service center to the cargo area of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport.

Officially opened on April 11, 2014, the new facility has the capacity to handle more than 2 million kilograms of shipments annually, an increase of 30% over DHL's existing capacities in Indonesia.

Quoted in Metrobali.com, Yasmin Aladad Khan, senior vice president for DHL Express in Southeast Asia, said Indonesia is a pillar in development of the economy of Southeast Asia, with Bali holding a leading role. We will be working together with our partners to help develop Bali’s and the surrounding regions’ economies.

The new Bali DHL gateway covers an area of 1,250 square meters and is located near the runway to facilitate the rapid movement of cargo, assisted by conveyor systems and advanced computerized systems. The new Bali facility also features advanced security systems including dual-view x-ray and explosive detections systems.

Ahmad Mohamad, senior technical advisor for DHL Express said: “DHL Express Indonesia is convinced that the strengthening of its long-term commitment in Bali, demonstrated through the provision of the best equipment in its new Ngurah Rai Airport facility. Bali is the source of many export products such as clothing, wooden decorations, furniture and much more. We will continue to try to become trusted business partners providing business solutions for the importation and export of goods.”

DHL Express Indonesia holds regular workshops on import and export procedures in order to share their worldwide expertise and help develop the local economy by assisting local business partners.


Call to Arms in Bali's Fight Against Prostituion
Bali Governor Calls for Community Leaders to Forcibly Close Prostitution Centers in Bali to Prevent the Spread of HIV/AIDS

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika is calling on the people of Bali to be united in rejecting “lokalisasi” or the established pockets of prostitution spread across the Island.

Speaking to Beritadewata.com on Friday, April 11, 2014, Pastika said: I ask people living in proximity of ‘lokalisasi’ – be they openly operating or camouflaged in cafes – to be united in rejecting these activities (prostitution). The threat of HIV/AIDS in Bali at this time is extraordinary. Around 20% of commercial sex workers in Bali are estimated to be HIV positive. What can we expect, if this situation is allowed to continue? The backstreet ‘cafes’ are a major source of the spread of HIV/AIDS.”

The governor not only urged the people of Bali to be united in rejecting prostitution in their communities, but also cited specific locations rife with prostitution practice such as Jalan Danau Tempe, Jalan Danau Poso, Jalan Danau Blanjong, Padanggalak, Jalan Bung Tomo, the area surrounding Lumintang and Jalan Gunung Lawuh – all located in Bali’s capital of Denpasar. The governor also mentioned Pesiapan in Tabanan, Delod Berawah in Jembrana, Bungkulan in Buleleng and a number of other prostitution areas.

Urging aggressive, vigilante-like action by the public to close Bali’s prostitution centers, Pastika continued, saying: “All these areas are illegal, as it is impossible for such places to be licensed. People in these areas know who is operating these businesses; get together and throw them out! Go ahead and throw them out! Only then can the government come in and help finally settle the matter. We (the government) have no method for closing these illegal businesses (because they are unregistered). So, how to close them? This must also be done informally. The people must take steps to close them (the prostitution centers) down.”

Pastika also called on the media to publicize widely the names and locations of prostitution centers in Bali in all local newspapers. The governor said this is the way for those operating and backing such businesses to know that both the government and the people no longer accept these enterprises.

He also said that Balinese should be forbidden from using the services of commercial sex workers. “We know exactly the number of commercial sex workers in Bali because the number of backstreet cafes continues to grow. These illegal cafes can even now be found in the villages.” Said Pastika.

The number of locations is out of control and seldom visited by health officials and medical teams. In some instances, such as Jalan IB Mantra and the village of Tangtu, a prominent Ramos Cafe can be found operating openly on Jalan IB Mantra in a location almost next door to the east Denpasar Polsek (Police precinct) and about 200 meters from two schools.

Showing his growing frustration, Pastika, who once served as the Island’s Chief of Police, said: “We can continue to try to persuade these places to close, but the results are inadequate. We need the cooperative action of the people and all associated agencies.”


Don't Bet Your Life
Frenchman Could be Executed for Smuggling Drugs in Bali

A French national Jacques Giuly (49) has been formally charged with smuggling 3 kilograms of crystal methamphetamines into Bali and may face the death penalty as punishment for his crime.

The Frenchman was arrested on January 19, 2014 at Bali’s airport with his stash of drugs that police estimate has a street value of US$506,300.

State prosecutors say Giuly was operating as a paid courier, promised U$4,000 if he delivered the drugs obtained in Senegal to a party in Bali.

The drugs were concealed in the man’s suitcase.

The trial continues on April 17, 2104 in Bali.

Power Hungry Bali
Bali Needs to Produce 1,000 MW of Local Power Generation by 2018

The Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources is targeting for Bali to be able to produce 1,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity by 2018.

Bisnis.com reports that Bali is presently supplied with 700 MW of electrical power from sources primarily located on Java and delivered to Bali via submarine cables.

Meanwhile, Bali is developing power-generating stations capable of producing 400 MW of power at Celukan Bawang and Buleleng.

The Ministry says the government must develop power resources for Bali in keeping with the growing demands of the island’s development.

The Ministry of Energy and National Resources website calls on regents and mayors of municipalities to facilitate the licensing of new power generating centers, providing incentives if necessary to encourage the development of new power sources.

Meanwhile, the Ministry is boasting that it has developed 25,000 MW of new power generation for the Nation over the past 10 years.

Indecision is Expensive
Bali Urged to Quickly Decide Location of New Airport of the North

The provincial government of Bali and the regional government of Buleleng in north Bali have been told by a consultant on infrastructure development that they must quickly decide the locations for Bali’s 2nd international airport in order to begin budgeting and preparing for a toll road on which to access the new airport.

Beritabali.com carries the warning from A.A. Putu Ngurah Wirawan, delivered on April 6, 2014 in Denpasar. Wirawan said that there’s more to Bali’s new airport of the north than merely building the aerodrome, saying the equally important supporting infrastructure facilities must also be considered.

Said Wirawan: “I have been told that the Public Works Department (Dirjen Bina Marga) that they are in the midst of devising a five-year strategic program. This plan will include recommendations from all areas of Indonesia, including budgeting for the building of the airport in Bulleleng Bali.”

Wirawan said that if the province and the regional government fail to quickly decide the location of the new airport in north Bali, the Department of Public Works will find it difficult to budget an access road to connect the new airport with the rest of Bali.

“In connection with the access road from the south of Bali to its north, the Public Works department have yet to propose a definite road project. The longer this is postponed and we will lose the chance to prepare detailed engineering designs for the project. This is even going to prove more difficult in 2015 when a new government and parliament assumes power.”

“So let's determine the location first so we can make a budget for a detailed engineering design, feasibility study and the other documentation can be prepared. In this way we can start the planning,” he said.

He explained that if the location for the new Bali airport can be decided this year, the Department of Public Works can provide a budget next year for land surveys and a connecting highway to the south of Bali. If the process is delayed, Wirawan is concerned the entire project will remain unfunded or the airport might be built without the needed access road.

Giving Channel Seven Australia an Aussie Salute
Editorial: Calling on Channel Seven Australia To Give Bali a “Fair Go” in How its Represented to the Australian Public

In what could be arguably claimed as “fair warning” – Australia’s Channel Seven is busily promoting its new “observational-documentary series” titled “What Really Happens in Bali.”

Channel Seven is promising a “no-holds-barred look what really goes down in Australia’s favourite tourist destination.”

Hyperbole masquerading as “news,” the Channel Seven special promises to take you inside BIMC and Sanglah Hospitals' emergency rooms, show motorbike and surfing mishaps as they happen and even explore the perils of acquiring a sexually transmitted disease while on a Bali holiday. 

Describing Bali as a “place of adventure, opportunity and non-stop partying” but with a propensity to turn into a “real hell,” Channel Seven’s new series introduces viewers  to “schoolies experiencing their first taste of freedom, to Bali Fashion Week-wannabes, detoxing celebrities, expats with new business ventures and even the self-confessed Aussie lothario who claims he’s slept with over 100 women in 90 days."

The series film team  also promises to take viewers inside Kerobokan Prison to visit death row inmates and include footage showing serious accidents “as they happen in Bali.”

The Balinese have a decades-long relationship with Australia’s Channel Seven coverage of their Island, having come to expect the very worst in biased Indonesian-bashing. What rubbish Channel Seven can’t dig up aboutBali, they manufacture or attempt to purchases from convicted felons - as recently witnessed in the case of Schapelle Corby.

Channel Seven is a perpetrator of terrible injustices to both Bali and to its gullible Australian viewers by continuing to adopt a sensational and highly-biased approach to its coverage of Bali.

If there is a “real story” about Bali to be told you won’t hear it on Channel Seven.

Based on the hyped-up promotional video now in circulation from Channel Seven promoting their new series, you can be certain that stories of Australians living relatively sedate and normal lives while making meaningful contributions to their adopted Island home won't be shown on Channel Seven.Similarly, if you’re looking to learn more about Australian John Fawcett and the life-saving and sight-restoring work done by his foundation; the Australian doctors sharing their surgical skills with Indonesian doctors; the Australians who are funding schools and orphanages across Bali; the heroic work done by Yannie and Nigel Mason to rescue Sumatran elephants; or the work of Mike O’Leary at the ROLE Foundation helping to end the cycle of poverty among the woman of South Bali and restore Bali’s damaged ecosystem; and the many other Australians making significant contributions in key areas of Bali’s economy - you're not going to see those stories on Channel Seven.

The feeling many Australians feel for Bali is genuine. Moved by a genuine affection a great number of unsung Australians  heroes live in Bali making a qualitative difference in improving the lives of the Balinese. Admittedly less puerilely titilating in the retelling than an interview with a randy yabbo out to sexually conquer our island, these stories won't likely form a part of Channel Sevens View of “What Really Happens in Bali.”

We would lay a personal challenge to Seven West Media Limited, the owners of Channel Seven, and its Chairman Kerry Stokes and CEO Tim Worner to consider raising its games and make the decision to pull the highly misleading coming broadcast of “What Really Happens in Bali.”

Or, at the very least, why not give the people of Bali a “fair go” by allowing its recently established Tourism Board equal time to tell their version an entire other side of Australians making a positive impact on “What Really Happens in Bali.”

Mr. Stokes and Ms. Worner, we have a story to tell about life in Bali. And, quite clearly, it’s not your story.


More Fiber Optic Service for Bali
Telkom Investing to Increase Fiber Optic Network in Bali and Throughout Indonesia

Telekomunikasi Indonesia – more generally known as Telkom - have announced plans to spend US$600 million in a massive expansion of its fiber optic network across Indonesia.

According to The Jakarta Globe, the new investment in fiber optics is intended to add two million more subscribers to the company’s existing customer base of eight million home.

The expansion is touted as part of Telkom’s program to provide nation-wide connectivity.

The new fiber optic system promises speeds of one gigabyte per second and will be available in 30 cities across Indonesia including Denpasar, Bali.


Tiger Vanishing in Thin Air
Tigerair Mandala Continues to Shrink and Cancel Routes

Tigerair Mandala Airline continues to strip-off more routes and flights from its domestic network in a measure to stem mounting financial losses. Meanwhile, the Indonesian Civil Aviation Authorities are undertaking an audit of the airline's finances to determine whether the airlines is financially able to continue to operate.

This follows reports in the marketplace that Tiger Airways Holdings, who hold 40% of Tigerair Mandala’s shares, is seeking to either sell its shareholding or close the airline.

The Director General of Civil Aviation for Indonesia, Djoko Murjatmojo, has told the press that he is unclear if Tigerair Mandala has filed the required applications to close domestic routes. He added that his office was still reviewing the finances of the airline to determine its financial state of affairs. That report is expected to be in hand in June of 2014.

All Indonesian airlines are required by law to provided financial reports to the Ministry of Transportation to determine if a carrier has the wherewithal to continue safe operations.

Bisnis.com was unable to contact the spokesman for Tigerair Mandala, Lucas Suryananta, for comment on the airlines current condition. Earlier, however, Suryananta had told the newspaper that the restructuring of the Airline’s route network was purely a business decision done to remove unprofitable services.

Among the many routes closed by Tigerair Mandala were its Surabaya – Hong Kong service closed on February 10, 2014; Surabaya – Kuala Lumpur on February 11, 2014; and Jakarta – Kuala Lumpur on February 18, 2014.

Additionally, Jakarta – Pekanbaru closed on February 18, 2014; Medan – Singapore closed on February 18, 2014; Jakarta – Yogyakarta, Jakarta – Singapore and Pekanbaru – Singapore both closed on March 3, 2013.

Also closed on March 17, 2014 were Jakarta – Surabaya and Surabaya – Bangkok.

Jakarta to Hong Kong service by Tigerair Mandala stopped on April 11, 2014,

Flying into Trouble
Indonesian Air Force Compel Swiss Aviator Heinz Pier Violating National Airspace to Land in North Sumatra

The continuing search for the wreckage of MAS 370 and suggestions that the plane may have flown through Indonesian airspace undetected were dispelled in part by reception given on Thursday, April 10, 2014, to single-engine aircraft that strayed into Indonesian airspace.

A Swearingen SX-300 aircraft flown and hand-built by a retired Swiss aviator violated Indonesian airspace while flying from Colombo, Sri Lanka to Singapore and was subsequently intercepted by F-16 fighters from the Indonesian Air Force and forced to land at Soewondo Airbase near Medan, North Sumatra.

As the airplane flown by 65-year-old Swiss adventurer Heinz Peir came to a stop on the runway the pilot found his airplane surrounded by armed combat troops armed and fully prepared to prejudicially  bring to end any untowardly situation that might develop.

Fortunately, the man quickly surrendered to military police, was frisked and led away for question by Air Force and national aviation authorities.

The Swiss aviator, Heinz Pier, maintains a blog online retelling of his visits to more than 31 countries, a list that now includes Indonesian where he and his plane may remain on an indefinite stay due to a failure to obtain permission before overflying the Republic’s airspace.

The Indonesian Aviation Law Number 15 of 1992 (paragraphs 13 & 58) provides punishments of up to five years in prison and fines of up to Rp. 60 million (US$5,200) for civil aircraft that violate Indonesian Airspace without priot overflight permission.

Peir could face further complications from the fact that his airplane is registered as an “experimental aircraft” and that the Indonesian authorities might determine the airplane does not meet national airworthiness certification needed for it to be allowed take off from an Indonesian airport.


Indonesia Takes Delivery of RI-1
Indonesia Get its First Presidential Jet

Indonesia’s first Presidential Aircraft  - RI-1 - landed on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at Halim Perdanakusuma Airport in Jakarta

The sky-blue Boeing Business Jet 2 (BBJ-2) will undergo safety and security checks carried out by the Indonesian Air Force before formally going into service as the official aircraft of the Indonesian President.

Built at a cost of Rp. 847 billion rupiah (US$73.7 million) the aircraft is 38-meters long with a wingspan of 35.79-meters and powered by two CFM56-7 turbofan jets.

The inside of the aircraft boasts two VVIP staterooms, four VVIP meeting rooms and seating for 12 in an executive section and a separate area for 44 presidential staff.

The jet has a range of 10 hours during which it can traverse some 10,000 kilometers.

Because of testing and training programs needed to introduce the new jet into service, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will only enjoy the privilege of flying on the aircraft perhaps 2-3 times before his final term of office comes to an end.

The State Secretariat has defended the purchase of the aircraft – the first aircraft dedicated exclusively for use by the President in the Republic’s 69-year history, claiming the government will save some Rp. 114.2 billion (US$9.9 million) in State funds during its two first years of operation.


Bali as a Cheapening Destination
Moratorium on New Rooms in Bali Needed to Stop Bali’s Decline into a Cheap Destination

Bisnis Bali has published a page-one article examining the impact of Bali’s continuing failure to impose a moratorium on new hotel building and curb the growingly critical oversupply of hotel rooms.

The secretary of the Indonesia Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) Denpasar branch, AA Ngurah Adhi Ardhana, tells of how hotel rooms that once sold for Rp. 300,000 (US$26) a night are now being sold for Rp. 199,000 (US$17.30) a night – all due to the massive oversupply of hotel rooms in Bali.

Ardhana blamed the failure by the government to impose a moratorium on new hotel building put forth by Bali’s governor as causing the uncontrolled growth in new accommodation, declining occupancy rates and lower room rates.

And while arrivals to Bali have increased from year to year, any increase in visitors has been outstripped by an even faster growth in the number of new rooms coming onto the market.

For this reason, Ardhana argues, a moratorium on new hotels in Bali must be quickly and firmly imposed.

Ardhana is suggesting that those wishing to invest in hotels in Bali be encouraged to form partnerships with established accommodation providers who lack the capital needed to upgrade and modernize their existing businesses.


Education for Excellence
STPBI Now Providing Certified Hotel Administration Training in Bali

In order to make young Indonesian hotel professionals better able to compete for top-ranking positions the hospitality industry, the Bali International Tourism Academy (STPBI) is now providing certification for Certified Hotel Administrators (CHA) from the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute.

I Gede Wiwin Suyasa, CHE, the Director of International Academic Affairs at STPBI, told Bali Post, “STPBI is a global academic partner of the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute or AHLEI."

In late March 2014 a CHA workshop that saw participation by 12 high-ranking hoteliers was held concluding with a certification test on Saturday, March 29, 2104.

CHA certification is reserved for general managers who have work in that position for at least three years. The workshops are conducted by instructors from AHLEI. “Because STPBI has been appointed by AHLEI, those who want to earn AHLEI certification no longer need to travel to America,” explained Suyasa.

Pets Not Welcome
Bali Police Cracking Down on Pet Smuggling from Java

Police in Tabanan have apprehended people traveling on the road from Gilimanuk to Denpasar caught in the process of trying to smuggle dogs and cats into Bali.

It is against Law No. 16 of 1992 on the Quarantine of Animals in Bali that declares any attempt to transport dogs and cats in or out of Bali a crime punishable by up to three years in prison and Rp. 150 million (US$13,000).

Animals discovered in the process of transportation to or from Bali are confiscated by quarantine officials who can, at their option,  destroy the animals.

The most recent confiscation of animals involved two longhaired Angora kittens, and four dogs comprised of a chow-chow, two standard poodles, a pit bull mix and a local dog from West Java.

The animals were discovered during roadside vehicle inspections on the highway near Kediri.

Listed as a suspect in the case is the driver of the vehicle Agus Jaya (42) who told police he was paid RP. 7.5 million (US$650) to drive the animals from West Java to Denpasar.

The Bali Post reports that quarantine authorities have determined that the chow chow found in the vehicle had been sent by an individual named Subianto listed as living on Jalan Sukamulya Indah in Bandung, West Java and destined for delivery to a man named Wijaya on Jalan Pantai Sindu 15 in Sanur, Bali.


Paying More, Getting Less
Lawmakers and Public Complain About Increase Passenger Service Charges at Bali’s Airport

NusaBali used page one to focus a spotlight on the April 1, 2014 increase in the airport service charge for departing international passengers and further plans to increase the domestic service charge in August.

The vice-chairman of Commission I of the Bali Provincial House of Representatives, Gusti Putu Widjera, has called on the managers of Bali’s airport – PT Angkasa Pura I to reconsider plans to increase the passenger service charge that he sees as burdensome.

Widjera said on Monday, April 7, 2014, “Before PT Angkasa Pura I (PAP) increases the airport tax at Ngurah Rai Airport they should first undertake a study involving academics, the Indonesian Consumer Bureau (YLKI) and local government.”

While acknowledging that the decision to increase the cost of the airport service charge rests with PT Angkasa Pura, Widjera said involving the community in such decisions would help to avoid conflicts and polemics.

Sounding a similar note was an expert on infrastructure issues, Anak Agung Putu Ngurah Wirawan, who cautioned PAP not to simply do as it pleases as regards increasing the passenger service charge.

Wirawan called into question the recent increase in the passenger service charge to Rp. 200,000 (US$17.50) and plans to soon increase the domestic charge to Rp. 75,000 (US$6.50). “It’s justified if the charge is increased providing there is also an improvement in the services provided to passengers such as spacious terminals, clean toilets, large waiting rooms, a good public announcement system and clean carpets. But at the present time, there continues to be filthy carpets in waiting rooms, air conditioners that do not cool, and other services that are failing to please the public,” he said.

Wirawan said any increase in airport service charge should be discussed and formulated by all the involved parties and based on the improvement of services. Once an increase in service and fees is agreed, the decision should be socialized to the general public.

Wirawan described the decision by PT Angkasa Pura to increase the passenger service charge as “arrogant” and done without any clear parameters. He also bemoaned that fact that the Provincial and Regional governments did not have a shareholding in Bali’s airports. This lack of equity means that the people of Bali enjoy no say in the control and operation of Bali’s airport including issues such as parking, the selection of small and medium-sized traders to sell at the airport and similar matters.

Wirawan Added: “The provincial government of Bali has no representative in the management of the airport. To get permission for the Sarbargita bus system to enter the airport required great struggle. The location of the airport is, after all, in Bali. These mistakes cannot be made again if a new airport is built in North Bali.”
