Balipost.com reports that Bali’s Airport Authority - Angkasa Pura is adding additional flight slots to facilitate a hoped-for increase in tourist arrivals starting from October 2019.
Elfi Amir, head of the District IV Flight Authority that includes operations from the Ngurah Rai International Airport, confirmed on Monday, July 1, 2019 that Bali’s Airport will go from handling 30 flight movements per hour to 32. The additional flight slots will be available only for international flights.
