Jalan Raya Gusti Ngurah Rai Tuban, Kuta, Kabupaten Badung
IATA airport code: DPS
ICAO airport code: WADD
The airport on the Indonesian island of Bali has two terminals, for international and domestic flights. These terminals are next to each other, connected by a corridor with shops and eateries. Both terminals have recently been renovated to cope with the increasing DPS departures. Denpasar is the capital of Bali, but the airport is much closer to the popular tourist beach Kota Beach.
The airport is named after I Gusti Ngurah Rai, a commander of the Indonesian independence fighters in Bali. He was killed by the Dutch army in 1946 during the Indonesian War of Independence.
In 2019 there were even more than 24 million Bali Denpasar airport departures and arrivals (passengers). The plan is to reach the 38 million passengers to be carried by 2026. Most Bali departures are with the airlines Citilink, Batik Air, Garuda Indonesia, AirAsia, Lion Air, NAM Air, Sriwijaya Air and Wings Air. Many Australians fly to Bali too. There are routes to most big cities like Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Darwin, Adelaide, Perth and Cairns. Most of the times the arrivals are with the airlines Jetstar, Malindo Air, Qantas and Virgin Australia.
