Bali Ngurah Rai (DPS) Airport

Bali Ngurah Rai DPS Airport Overview

Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport DPS, also known as Denpasar Airport, is Indonesia's third-busiest international airport. Bali is the closest island to the east of Java and is a popular tourist destination offering a rich cultural experience, tropical beauty and a solid tourist infrastructure. It is famous for its ethnic artworks, its local theatrical dance performances, and its main tourist areas, which include Kuta, Sanur, Jimbaran, Seminyak and Nusa Dua.
NOTE: The Benoa-Nusa Dua (a 12-km toll road) and the Dewa Ruci underpass were completed May 2013.

To lessen congestion at Ngurah Rai, the new 'Lombok International Airport' recently opened on the nearby Island of Lombok, to the east of Bali – a 20-minute flight from Ngurah Airport.   Furthermore, by March 2014, it was suggested to build a new airport in Buleleng (at North of Bali Island) -  in the Kubutambahan area (near Bangli, Karangasem and Badung.  In April it was announced that a decision will be forthcoming in the next few weeks....

Bali Airport is located in Tuban on the small Indonesian island of Bali, between Kuta & Jimbaran, and is 13 km south of the city of Denpasar. Bali Airport's passenger count is growing so fast that the Government is presently considering opening another airport nearby.

With a long runway and an estimated 14 million passengers per year, Bali Ngurah Rai Airport is hub to Garuda Indonesia, Indonesia AirAsia & Merpati Nusartara airlines, and is served by a host of major and low-cost international airlines, as well as tourist charters; it also serves as transfer airport to Malaysian and Indonesian travelers on their way to Australia and other points of the globe.  (Travelers from Los Angeles can take Singapore Airlines to Singapore & transfer on Garuda Indonesia airline to Bali - a trip of  21.5 hours; travelers from Europe also need to transfer in Singapore.)

The on-Airport Holiday Inn Resort Balihai is in close vicinity of the Airport terminals and offers among its services conference and business-related facilities.

Bali Ngurah Rai International has an International & a Domestic Terminal.

NOTE: 
1. The departure tax has inceased to $17.50 (Rp 200,000).
2. Surveys recently conducted brought to light domestic and international user's complaint regarding lack of public transportation, unmetered taxi cabs overcharging passengers. Passengers complaints also abound regarding downright extorion by security officers & other staff, unsanitary restrooms, rude or inattentive customer care, and more.
2. The Co-General Manager of Angkasa Pura, the Airport's operator, has stated in early May 2014, that he is aware of passenger complaints regarding poor customer service and will address this problem in the foreseeable future. This also includes sanitizing restrooms, more discipline among taxi drivers, more immigration counters, & more attentive security officers.  In fact in June 2014, three security guards were sentenced to 4 months in prison for theft in late 2013 of currency contained inside the passenger' baggage, in a well-orchestrated manner.
3. As a result of a recent incident where a drunk passenger threatened the pilots onboard the aircraft, it has been established that any person arriving at the Airport drunk or high may not gain access to their departing plane, and may have to pay a considerable fine.
