Plans for new airport in Buleleng now in limbo

The planned construction of a new airport in the northern coastal regency of Buleleng has gone from the hottest issue for the island’s tourism industry to an enigmatic proposal, following years of bureaucratic uncertainty and a lack of serious investors.

Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika conceded that there has been no significant progress made on the planned airport. The central government focused on three sites in the Buleleng regency: Kubutambahan, Sangsit and Gerokgak villages. The plan to build a second airport on the island was announced several years ago by the then tourism minister Jero Wacik, in anticipation of the growing number of tourists to the resort island.
