Operations at Ngurah Rai Airport’s domestic departure terminal have returned to normal following a fire at the terminal on Friday evening that led to the check-in counters for domestic flights operated by Air Asia, Travira Air, Lion Air, Wings Air, and Batik Air moved to the international terminal.

According to the general manager of PT Angkasa Pura I Ngurah Rai Airport, Haruman Sulaksono, the decision was taken after a thorough evaluation on the terminal’s condition and check-in counters post-fire.

“After security and safety checking procedures, we conclude all affected facilities have been declared able to operate normally,” Haruman said yesterday, as quoted by Bali Post

Haruman added that, as of today, all of the terminal’s facilities, such as elevators and escalators, as well as security facilities like full body scanners and X-ray machines, are functioning normally.

The fire broke out on Friday evening, causing IDR4 billion (US$284,000) in damages to electrical installations, ceilings, four X-ray machines, and more. By Sunday, the Bali police ruled that the fire had been caused by an electrical short circuit in the panel room on the first floor.
