(1/1/2010)

The Bali Chapter of the Association of Indonesian Travel Agents (ASITA) is recommending to the Department of Air Communications that they open more direct air access between Europe and Bali.

As reported by Beritabali.com, this recommendation is being made by ASITA in order to increase tourism visits to Bali. The Bali Chapter of the organization of professional travel agents believes that the strong desire among Europeans to visit Bali is currently being thwarted by the lack of direct flights.

The Chairman of ASITA Bali, Al Purwa, underlined the importance of European travelers to Bali's economy given their higher rate of relative daily spending and length of stay of between one week and one month.

Explained Purwa, "First, they (the Europeans) come form long distances. If someone flies a long distance they tend to stay longer at the destination."

Purwa is optimistic that if direct flights between Europe and Bali are increased, Bali will be able to attract 2.5 million foreign visitors in 2010. The official target for foreign visitors to Bali in 2010 is 2.2 million.
