Indonesia, RoK to open travel corridor hinh anh 1Ngurah Rai International Airport (Photo:

Hanoi (VNA) - A travel corridor between Bali of Indonesia and the Republic of Korea (RoK) has been proposed to the Indonesian government by Angkasa Pura I LTD which operates the Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport.

According to President Director of Angkasa Pura I Faik Fahmi, the proposed programme, called the Safe Corridor Initiative (SCI), is a bilateral cooperation between Ngurah Rai Airport and Incheon Airport in the RoK.

The above proposal was made in the context that travel restriction between countries has caused the number of international visitors to Bali to drop seriously, greatly affecting Indonesia’s tourism industry.

This is considered as a good solution for both governments, Fahmi said.

The two sides have completed preparations for carrying out the programme, which is scheduled to start in late October 2020, he added.  
Indonesia plans to replicate this model of cooperation with other countries if the programme is a success./.
