Taufan revealed that Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport is ready to make international flights, if it is later opened. 

However, he didn't reveal the exact date for the opening of international flights and whether it would be the same as Luhut's stated date. 

Meanwhile, currently his party has implemented a health protocol that is in accordance with the standards set by the Ministry of Health. 

An example is the PCR test facility to anticipate when international travelers arrive at Bali's I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport.
