Ngurah Rai International Airport✈
also known as Denpasar International Airport, is the main airport in Bali, located 13 km south of Denpasar. Ngurah Rai is the third busiest airport in Indonesia after Soekarno–Hatta International Airport and Juanda International Airport.
The airport is named after I Gusti Ngurah Rai, a Balinese hero who died on 20 November 1946 in a Puputan War (fight to the death war), the airport is located in Tuban between Kuta and Jimbaran and is close to the tourist locations of southern Bali; the resort center of Kuta is 2.5 km north of the airport. The capital of Bali, Denpasar, is located nearby.
In first half year of 2017, the airport served 10,156,686 passengers. The airport has category IX and is capable of serving wide-body aircraft including the Airbus A380.
Airport Council International has awarded Ngurah Rai International Airport as the world’s third best airport (with 15-25 million passengers each year) in 2016 based on their services.
With about 12 to 15 percent passengers growth annually, the airport will reach 20 million passengers per annum in 2017, which is the current airport's full capacity. Lengthening the existing runway is not possible either due to the densely populated areas adjacent to the airport, or environmental concerns regarding land reclamation.
A site for a new, larger airport with two runways has been identified in the northern part of Bali in the east part of Buleleng Regency.
