Located in the south of Bali, Ngurah Rai International Airport is just 13km from Denpasar. Also known as Denpasar International Airport, the airport is situated in Tuban between Jimbaran and Kuta and is just minutes from popular tourist regions such as Kuta. Named after famous republican I Gusti Ngurah Rai, the Ngurah Rai Airport pays homage to his sacrifice in a fight to the death with the Dutch during Indonesia's Revolution. Although the company was defeated, I Gusti Ngurah Rai and 95 others were killed in the battle and the airport was named in memoriam.
