According to Herdiyanto, Ngurah Rai Airport had been recognized as the 2017 world`s best airport after competing with 340 airports from 85 countries and involved some 600 thousand airport customers.

In addition to bagging the award of the best airport in the world, one of the busiest airports in Indonesia also won two other awards: the second-best airport in the Asia-Pacific for serving above two million passengers per year and the best airport in Asia-Pacific, with a passenger capacity of 15-25 million per year.

The awards were directly received by Sigit Herdiyanto in Halifax, Canada, on Wednesday (Sept. 12) from ACI World Director General Angela Gittens.
