The international terminal expansion at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, Indonesia, has received IDR1trn ($110m) of funding from state airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I.

Under the proposed expansion, international flights will move to the domestic terminal to cope with the increased number of international travellers.

The terminal will then be expanded to 120,000m² and equipped with new accommodation facilities.

Domestic flights will move to the smaller international terminal.

Once the expansion is complete, the terminals will cover a combined area of 190,000m² and will be able to handle up to 20 million passengers a year by 2013.

Angkasa Pura is yet to announce contractors for the project, which is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2010.
