The Indonesia National Flag Carrier Garuda Indonesia has announced plans to open direct flight services between Bali and Mumbai, India.

The State News Agency Antara reports that Garuda’s India plans reflect the fast growing number of Indian tourist visitors to Bali and the strong demand among Indian travelers for Bali as a holiday destination.

The head of cargo for Garuda Indonesia, Sigit Muhartono, while attending the inaugural flight from Xian (China) to Bali on Tuesday, January 30, 2018, said, “India represents an extraordinary market with a growth rate of 36%.”
Sigit said he hopes a successful launch of a Mumbai-Bali service would support goals to increase the system-wide income of Garuda by 14.5% in 2018.
Sigit revealed that in 2017, the total revenue of Garuda Indonesia reached US$2.9 billion with almost 50% of all income derived from international services.
In addition to adding an Indian service, Garuda has plans to widen its Chinese market by serving destinations such as Kumning, Shenyang following the inauguration of services Bali-Xian and Bali-Zhengzhou.
Judi Rifayantoro, an expert staff to the Minister of Tourism, welcome the declaration to start a Bali-Mumbai service, saying: “While there are indirect flight connecting Bali and Mumbai with intermediate stops in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok, if Garuda opens a Bali-Mumbai service this will be very good.”
India now ranks as the third largest source of tourist visitors to Bali, increasing by 48.2% in 2017 over total arrivals in 2016.
No exact date has been given for the commencement of the new Bali – Mumbai flight service with Garuda Indonesia.
