THE Transportation Ministry has appealed to people to adjust their travel plans to Bali during the G20 Summit in the wake of restrictions on regular flights to and from Bali on November 13-17, 2022.

According to an Antara News report: “We urge the public to rearrange (their) travel (plans) and anticipate the changes in flight schedules to and from Bali,” the ministry’s spokesperson, Adita Irawati, said here on Wednesday.

Irawati remarked that the ministry had issued a Circular Letter of the Director General of Civil Aviation Number 12 of 2022 on Aviation Operational Management at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport, Bali Province, during the implementation of the G20 Summit.

The summit will be held on November 15-16, 2022.

According to the spokesperson, the circular stated that the airport will operate for 24 hours and commercial flights are prohibited from having an overnight parking or remain overnight (RON) service on November 12-18, 2022.

Meanwhile, the limitation on regular flights will be implemented on November 13-17, 2022.

Based on the ministry’s data, most of the summit participants are estimated to arrive in Bali on November 13 and return to their respective countries on November 16.

Hence, as a precautionary measure, the Transportation Ministry has conducted intensive coordination with related ministries and agencies as well as all aviation stakeholders. “(The arrangement is implemented) considering that several state guests and G20 delegates will use regular flights. In addition, it is decided that the flights to Bali are only through the Soekarno Hatta Airport (in Banten Province),” the spokesperson noted.
