GIPI Bali head, Gus Agung said, “Not a single tourist should stay overnight at the airport, GIPI Bali together with Badung regional administration is providing free accommodation for tonight and tomorrow, if the airport remains closed.”

 
“We’ve set aside two billion rupiahs for two nights, one room is allocated for two guests,” Gus added.

 
The accommodation also includes breakfast. Gus Agung mentioned that in this time of social media, unsatisfied tourists can express their frustrations. “But if they are served well with respect, they will also post their happiness amid the panicky situation,” he added.

 
Tourism minister Arief Yahya praised GIPI Bali for its initiative by saying, “What is being done by the Badung regency and GIPI Bali is very good. This is what we call a long-term investment.”
