State airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I (AP I) has allocated more than Rp 78 billion (US$5.9 million) to expand the premises of the Lombok International Airport in West Nusa Tenggara, an executive said on Wednesday.

The expansion project would commence by the end of this year and is expected to be completed by mid 2017.

"The project bid is underway and currently being handled by our headquarter office," AP I Lombok Airport's general manager I Gusti Ngurah Ardita said.

The expansion project, Gusti said, would include the construction of two parking spaces for aircraft at the airport.

"Currently, we have 10 parking stands. The new expansion project will build two additional parking stands so the airport can accommodate more traffic," he said.

According to Gusti, the airport predicts a 32 percent traffic increase year on year. The Lombok Airport currently provides three international flights and 46 domestic flights every day. (dmr)
