I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Tuban, Kuta, Badung is not included in the list of 4 airports as the entry point for International Travel Actors (PPLN). It automatically forced Singapore Airlines to cancel the flight which was scheduled to fly for the first time on May 4, 2021.
I Gusti Ngurah Rai International airport was not mentioned as an entry point for foreign or international travelers after the regulation was issued by the Central Covid-19 Task Force and the Ministry of Health.
According to a letter issued by the Director-General of P2P Ministry of Health Number SR.03.04 / II / 1084/2021 April 28 and the results of the coordination of the Otban IV Office and other parties, there are only 4 airports that have been opened as international entry points: Cengkareng International Airport (CKG), Kualanamu International Airport (KNO), Juanda International Airport (SUB) and Manado International Airport (MDC).
Meanwhile, Ngurah Rai International Airport was not included in the PPLN entrance category.
With the regulation that came into force on April 28, the plan to operate the Singapore Airlines flight route Singapore – Denpasar which was scheduled for two times a week was declared canceled.
Only cargo international flights are allowed at Ngurah Rai International Airport.
The main consideration for this decision was the significant increase in cases of Covid-19 exposure in several countries (India, Pakistan, the Philippines).
As previously reported, direct flights from Singapore-Bali, and vice versa, were planned to reopen on May 4, 2021, with flight number SQ 944/945 at around 6:50 p.m.
