King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his entourage are extending their vacation in Bali to March 12, three days longer than originally planned.

"It is confirmed that the entourage of King Salman will extend the holiday in Bali to March 12, from the initial plan of only until March 9, 2017. The confirmation of the extension of the holiday is based on flight schedule demands," PT JAS deputy director of operations and services, Subiyono, told the media in Kuta, Bali, as quoted by tribunnews.com on Sunday.

PT JAS is a ground handling company that Saudi Arabian Airlines (SV) has entrusted to manage King Salman’s flights in Indonesia.

However, Subiyono said he did not know whether the return on March 12 would include King Salman himself, because the schedule could still change. "We only serve requests from them; it is all still tentative," Subiyono said.

He explained that some members of the group were traveling back and forth from Bali, while other new members were arriving on the island.

Subiyono added that PT JAS had registered three flights on March 11 and one flight on March 12 for SV, with an unknown number of passengers, from I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali. (dis/wit)
