The expansion of Ngurah Rai Airport Denpasar that is still running now is scheduled to operate on Sept. 15, 2013.
“Ngurah Rai expansion is expected starting to operate on September 15, 2013,” said the Main director of AP I Tommy Soetomo in Jakarta.
Tommy also stated that Ngurah Rai Airport will be equipped with terminal and apron for private jet plane.
In addition, around the airport some tourist accomodations are also established such as resort and tourism park.
Besides, AP I for Ngurah Rai Airport especially had gotten a contract of Rp 300 billions from commercial area rent.
He predicted that the contract value will increase into Rp 1.8 trillions in 2018.
As what was informed, Ngurah Rai Airport provides parking for medium-size plane that is used to transport the jetset-class tourists and VIP guests before the APEC Summit in Bali in October 2013.
“The capacity of the parking area is only for fourteen planes, which is prepared in the South area,” said the General Manager of Angkasa Pura I Ngurah Rai International Airport, Purwanto.
The parking area is for medium-size plane that is usually chartered by the jet set-class tourists or rich tourists. Besides, it is also for planes used by the state honorable guests or VIP guests.
According to him, the parking is deliberately prepared before APEC Summit to anticipate the huge number of chartered plane landing.
