An official of the Bali Ngurah Rai Airport has predicted that Bali will receive more domestic visitors this weekend.
The Stakeholder Relations Manager of Angkasa Pura I for Bali Ngurah Rai Airport, Taufan Yudhistira, stated that the Bali airport is expected to receive a significant increase in domestic arrivals over the next few days.
Many people have become less reluctant to travel since the government officially removed the Covid test requirement for vaccinated domestic visitors on Tuesday (8/3).
“With the recent adjustments on the travel requirements for domestic travelers, we’re quite optimistic that the traffic of both flight arrivals and passengers will increase by the weekend,” Taufan said on Wednesday (9/3).
He predicted that the number of daily passengers is expected to increase by 20 percent compared to the situation before the travel policy adjustment.
However, Taufan is committed to implementing prevention protocols during the airport’s operation to avoid creating a Covid-19 cluster within the area.
PCR and antigen test facilities will remain operational, as Covid tests are still required for travelers who aren’t fully vaccinated. The new policy only applies for fully vaccinated travelers.
