Denpasar International Airport (DPS) Guide
About Denpasar (Bali) Airport
The official name of Denpasar International Airport is Ngurah Rai International Airport Bali. If you’re not Indonesian, you’ll probably lean towards referring to Bali’s only international airport as Denpasar International Airport or even Bali Airport – both of which are more common than the official name. Denpasar International Airport is located in the south of the island of Bali, just below Denpasar. It is a major hub for Garuda Indonesia and is the second-busiest airport in Indonesia, after Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, which services Jakarta and the north of the country.
