Therefore, it is very important for us as airport managers to keep on improving the capability, renewal and updating of the ever-expanding technology," said by Angkasa Pura Airports President Director Danang S. Baskoro.

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is a United States government agency responsible for aviation security issues. In 2005, TSA had conducted a security assessment at Airport I Gusti Ngurah Rai Bali, and in 2007 the airport was declared 'comply' or fulfilled all required safety aspects.

Thus, until now I Gusti Ngurah Rai Bali Airport has become the only airport in Indonesia which has been secured by the two leading security institutions overseas, namely Transportation Security Administration (TSA) United States and and Office of Transport Security ( OTS) Australia.

This is in line with the instruction of the Minister of Transportation of the Republic of Indonesia Budi Karya Sumadi who requested that airport operators to always prioritize the safety and security of aviation. "I ask airport operators to prioritize safety and security, because if safety and security problems in the air is fatal," said by Minister of Transportation. [AH]
