The Indonesian government said that the existing airport no longer has room, without room to add another runaway.

It will upgrade Denpasar airport as soon as the new airport is operational.

Ross Taylor from the Perth-based Indonesia Institute said the plan will not go well with hundreds of thousands of Australian tourists coming to Bali every year.

& # 39; The Australian dollar spent in Bali is crucial for the Balinese economy and the governor is well aware of it and the last thing he would like to do is the thousands and thousands of Australians flying themselves with a two -and-upset – half-hour drive to get to their hotel, & he said.

& # 39; So & # 39; n 95 percent of all arrivals will want to travel south. & # 39;

The Indonesian government has started major road upgrades between Denpasar airport and the new airport site.

It is also considering a railway line to transport people free of charge between the two airports.

According to estimates, around 70 percent of flights from Australia would land at the new airport. Jetstar transported nearly one million travelers between Australia and Indonesia last year
