Preparations for G20 summit, AP I says 39 heads of state and world leaders will attend

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – PT Angkasa Pura I (Persero) is preparing to ensure the smooth running of the G20 summit in Bali in terms of airport management. PT Angkasa Pura I CEO Faik Fahmi explained that the event held on November 15-16, 2022 has endangered Indonesia’s reputation.

“We ensure that we can fully support the implementation of the G20,” he said during the BUMN RUMPI event at the SOE Ministry Media Center in Central Jakarta on Monday, November 7, 2022.

He explained that on the side of the delegation, there would be 20 heads of state from the G20 members, namely Australia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Japan, Turkey, Canada, South Africa, France, UK, Germany, China, India, USA, Italy. In addition, there is also Argentina, Russia, Brazil and the European Union, and finally Mexico.

The 9 special guests were non-G20 Heads of State, namely Singapore, Cambodia, Spain, United Arab Emirates, Netherlands, Senegal, Finland, Suriname and Fiji. Plus 10 additional VVIP invitations consisting of Heads of State and Dignitaries i.e. President of Zambia, President of Angola, President of South Sudan, Prime Minister of Denmark, Queen Maxima, President of FIFA, the President of the IOC, the Atlantic Council, Elon Musk and the World Economic Forum.

With so many VVIP guests, Faik said, his party had to handle the situation well. In addition, there are regular flights.

“Unlike the G20 in Rome, all presidential delegations landed at 3 airports. But for now only one airport, namely Bali’s I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport,” Faik said.

Faik also gives an overview of the average number of passengers per day at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport. Its office serves around 42,000 passengers a day – including 22,000 international passengers and the rest domestic flights – with 223 flights. “So you can imagine how crowded this airport is,” he said.

Also, with the G20 event, Faik said, his party needed to accommodate the movement of passengers and planes made up of regular passengers as well as heads of state who were present. “Including companions, so there are ministers, there are delegates, the numbers are quite large, that’s where we get organized,” Faik explained.
