They aren’t information that Ngurah Rai International DPS/WADD is closed, at least not on Plane Finder iOS App.

@Wayan Bo, it's not really closed, just has no scheduled flights, no handling staff etc. Since the runway is unobstructed it could receive an emergency landing if need be. Aircraft not in an emergency would be denied a request for permission to land.
