Switzerland-based global aviation services provider Execujet will be moving from a 3,200-sq-ft temporary FBO structure at Bali International Airport, to a permanent facility next month. The new 34,229-sq-ft facility, currently undergoing completion, will offer 10 times more space than the temporary location next door. A 700,000-sq-ft ramp built next to the new terminal is designed to handle all business aircraft up to single-aisle jetliners.
ExecuJet Aviation has begun aircraft handling operations at a temporary general aviation terminal at Indonesia’s Bali International Airport. The facility is ExecuJet’s first to open following the last year’s signing of an MoU with state-owned Indonesian airport manager Angkasa Pura I for the design, construction and management of general aviation terminals at up to 13 airports in the Asian country.
Indonesian authorities are piecing together information from the wreckage of the Lion Air Boeing 737-800 that crashed in shallow water and broke into pieces just short of Runway 9 at Denpasar-Ngurah Rai Bali International Airport (WADD) on April 13. The accident occurred at 3:15 p.m. local time as the aircraft completed a non-precision approach after a 536-mile domestic flight from Badung Airport (WICC). None of the 108 people aboard was killed, although many were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
