Indonesia, Bali International Airport Accessibility Information
- MemberAugust 27, 2019 at 10:53 am
The airport is accompanied by its Airport Code (a simplified three-letter code used to identify an international airport), a Telephone number (you may need to use exit codes, and the country code for Indonesia if you are calling from outside Indonesia), website, and a breakdown of useful information.
It is generally recommended that you arrive at an Indonesia Airport a minimum of 3-hours prior to an international flight (even if the airport provides a less congested security check for passengers in wheelchairs). Flights typically begin boarding 1-hour prior to the departure time and it is especially important for passengers in wheelchairs to be present early, as they are typically the first to board. If you are a passenger in a wheelchair planning a trip with a layover for an international flight, you should consider planning a minimum of 2-hours between flights (anything less could be problematic if your previous flight was delayed and/or if you have to pass through security to reach your connecting flight).
Service Dogs and Medication:
Those planning to bring service dogs into various parts of Indonesia will face many restrictions, however according to information found on the internet, no animals are currently allowed to be brought into Bali at this time due to current efforts in fighting illegal animal trafficking and to combat issues with potential rabid animals from being brought into the area.
Be aware that various drugs/medicines which are commonly available in other countries may be restricted in Indonesia. Please see this page for drug/medicine restrictions in Indonesia: https://www.en.indonesia.nl/public-service/consular-services/travelling-to-indonesia-with-prescribed-medication
