The Battle for Europe

Bali by the Numbers: European Arrivals to Bali for 2006 Reflect the Changing Pattern of Air Access to the Island.


In's continuing look at foreign tourist arrivals for 2006, this installment of Bali by the Numbers examines European arrivals to the Island over a 6 year period 2001-2006.

The Six-Year Perspective: A Very Different Europe

Just how dramatically the European arrival numbers of changed over the past 6 years is underlined in the chart shown on

▪ Overall European arrivals in 2006 to Bali have declined -18.14% from what they were in 2001.

▪ Although still the top producing country in Europe, the U.K. totals have declined -46.04% since the 2001 – a situation that reflects Garuda Indonesia's cessation of London flights.

▪ Similarly suffering from Garuda's European exodus, Germany dropped -25.54% in their production of passengers to Bali over the 6 years 2001-2006.

▪ The Italian market, once served by Bali bound flights and charters is also lagging -48.51% as compared to six years earlier.

▪ On the bright side – The Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland have managed to reassert their place in Bali's European arrivals, operating at levels roughly equal to their performance 6 years ago.

▪ With Russia grouped for purposes of comparison as a European nation, the recent introduction of Singapore Airline's regular service from Moscow has resulted in visitors from this market increasing +249.73% over six years.

Bali arrivals from all of Europe in 2006 totaled 352,157 - a decrease of -2.8% from 2005 (362,474).
