(6/7/2008)

Garuda Indonesia is addressing the strong demand for Bali holidays by adding extra capacity from Darwin, Melbourne and Sydney, with further additions from Perth anticipated.

The number of Australians traveling to Bali in the first four months of 2008 increased by 25.74% against the same period last year. According to Garuda's Sydney office, the largest growth in Australian traffic to Bali in Q1 2008 is from Perth and Darwin (75% and 71% respectively), 44% from Victoria/Tasmania an 49% from New South Wales/ Australian Capital Territory.

In order to meet this burgeoning demand Garuda Indonesia will add additional flights to their Darwin, Melbourne and Sydney to Bali routes over the coming few months.

On June 25th, a third Darwin flight will commence, departing each Wednesday and adding an additional 134 seats to the route.

This will be followed on July 22nd by the introduction of a fourth Melbourne service operating from Bali to Melbourne on Tuesdays and returning to Bali on Wednesdays.

On September 2nd, two more services will be added to the Australian network. These will include a sixth flight on the Denpasar-Sydney route and a fifth flight between Melbourne and Bali.

Poerwoko Soeparyono, General Manager Australia & Southwest Pacific, Garuda Indonesia, said, "the introduction of these new services will bring an additional 1,013 seats to the Australian routes which should go some way towards addressing the growing demand for Bali as a holiday destination."

"Bali is enjoying all-time record visitor arrivals in 2008 and, being Visit Indonesia Year, it is hoped that this will extend to Indonesian destinations beyond Bali also," Poerwoko added.

The additional services will bring Garuda Indonesiaís weekly Australian operation to 31 flights per week from four Australian ports of Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Darwin with further capacity expected on the Perth route as soon as the new Boeing 737-800NG aircraft arrive.

Details of the Additional Flights

Effective July 22nd

A new flight departing Melbourne on a Wednesday, will bring the total frequency of flights from Melbourne to Bali to four, departing Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The new flight will depart Bali on Wednesday at 11:55 p.m. arriving in Melbourne on Thursday morning at 7:25 a.m. and departing again at 9:55 a.m. arriving in Bali at 1:55 p.m. local time.

Effective September 2nd

Sydney will receive two new flights which will operate on a Tuesday and Friday, but its Thursday flight will be redirect to Melbourne as a further additional service. Thus Melbourne frequency will increase from four to five flight per week and depart daily except Monday and Saturday, and Sydney frequency will increase to six flights per week and operate daily except Thursday with Airbus A330 aircraft. The new Tuesday and Friday flights will depart Bali just after midnight at 00:25 a.m. and arrive in Sydney at 7:55 a.m. the following day and depart Sydney again at 10:30 a.m. and arrive in Bali at 3:00 p.m. local time.
