I Ngurah Rai Airport Restricts Propeller Plane Movement

During the G20 Summit, PT Angkasa Pura I (Persero), as the manager of I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport, will limit the propeller plane movement.

President Director of PT Angkasa Pura I (Persero) Faik Fahmi revealed that his party had restricted the movement of small propeller plane.

This restriction aims to maintain air traffic at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport, Bali, which will receive state guests during the G20 Summit.

“Yes, it is. So we reduce propellers from small towns. So if you want to come here, don’t use it,” said Faik, quoted on Tuesday night (8/11/2022).

Faik stated that this restriction would not disrupt the schedule of commercial aircraft entering and leaving Bali. From AP I data, aircraft movements at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport reach 233 movements (take-off and landing) per day. The average number of passengers can reach 42,000 per day.

AP I ensures that this regular movement will not be disrupted during service for G20 Summit guests.

The plan is that guests from heads of state and presidents to ministers will start arriving on November 13-14, 2022. He revealed that there are around 39 G20 heads of state, non-G20, and important figures who will land at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport.

Faik said several planes of the head of state would stay (Remain Overnight/RON) at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport. Several others, said Faik, will conduct RON at other AP I airports.

Regarding the security scenario, he emphasized that AP I had prepared this.

“We have made simulations, so we simulated plane crashes, simulations of terrorist security disturbances, including natural disasters, tsunamis, and so on,” he said.

“We have prepared the scenario for normal conditions and conditions for disturbances,” said Faik.

Previously, The US President’s delegation arrived in Bali first to attend the G20 Indonesia Summit. They arrived early to prepare for President Joe Biden’s arrival.

Regarding security standards at I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Faik ensured that the US delegation did not have any special requests related to security at the airport ahead of Biden’s arrival.

“Everything is safe. There is nothing that we cannot accommodate. Security standards,” said Faik, as quoted on Wednesday (11/9/2022).

Faik explained that the US delegation had previously checked and coordinated with the TNI and Polri officers ahead of Joe Biden’s arrival in Bali, around November 13-14, 2022.

“We are ready to facilitate, and so far they are satisfied with what we have prepared. There is no significant concern. Everything we prepare matches their expectations,” said Faik.
