Bali tourismAs Mount Agung continues to erupt, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika issued a letter to all tourism industry players in Bali.

The governor in the letter laid out three things, first he asked for the industry players to provide the latest information about the development of the situation and status of Ngurah Rai International Airport. The information should come from the authority.

Next he asked for hotels and other lodgings to give a one-night free stay during the airport closure.

The airport is currently still closed. The closure has caused the cancellation of 443 flights and affecting 59,539 passengers.

The last point he made was for hotels and lodgings to also offer the lowest rates for tourists who want to extend their stay.

“In an effort to maintain the goodwill of Bali tourism, which is our duty and obligation, we need the cooperation of all the parties to assure tourists that they feel safe while they’re in Bali,” Pastika said in the letter.

He also wished that the industry players, including associations and communities in Bali, will follow up with his requests.

A similar statement has been previously released by Tourism Minister Arief Yahya.
Moreover, Indonesian Tourism Industry Association (GIPI) Bali together with Badung Regional Administration has been proactive in serving the tourists by providing free accommodation until the airport reopens.
