More signs that Australian arrivals to Bali are on a slow but steady mend came last week in the form of an announcement from Garuda Indonesia that they will soon add two extra flights per week between Perth and Bali, increasing capacity by a total of 262 seats per week.
In addition to the daily service currently offered by Garuda, additional flights will commence operating on Fridays and Saturdays from August 25, 2006.
The new Bali bound services will depart Perth at 5.35 p.m., while inbound services will leave Denpasar at 1:00 p.m. arriving in Western Australia at 4.35 p.m..
Long-Awaited Executive Class Seats
The extra services will be operated by Boeing 737-400 aircraft offering 14 executive class and 117 economy class seats. Added to the existing all-economy 168 seats per day operated on B737-800 aircraft, this will bring Garuda Indonesia's weekly capacity from Perth to Bali to 1,438 seats, an increase of 22% in overall capacity.
"Our flights to Bali are always full," explained Rob Moro, Western Australia Sales Manager of Garuda Indonesia. "This overwhelming demand is indicative of the continuing resilience and enduring popularity of this island destination," he added.
Mr Moro said: "With bargains abounding in airfare and accommodation packages, there's probably never been a better time to enjoy the Island of the Gods."
