INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT Angkasa Pura I stated that the operational activities of Lombok Pray International Airport, NTB had returned to normal, after a magnitude 7 earthquake struck the island on Sunday (05/08/2018) at 19.46 WIB.

"There is no damage to the airside facilities such as runways, taxiways, and aprons. There is only minor damage to the facilities at the terminal," AP I Corporate Communications Senior Manager Awaluddin said in a written statement received in Jakarta on Sunday.

Around 8:00 a.m., the airport electricity network was extinguished then airport employees and passengers were immediately evacuated outside the terminal.

But by 8:30 p.m. the prospective passengers have returned to the terminal waiting room.

Besides Lombok, an earthquake also affected I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali.

Although the earthquake caused some damage to the supporting facilities at the terminal, there was no damage to the air side facilities so that the operation of the Ngurah Rai International Airport was normal.

"At present, to maintain the security and safety of our passengers we are reviewing and cleaning up various facilities and facilities in all areas, both at the terminal and the side of the air affected by the earthquake," Awaluddin said.

Previously, an earthquake measuring 7 SR shook Lombok, NTB until it was felt in Bali with a strong shock.
