Fly by Night Operation?
Investigation of December 2014 AirAsia Crash Reveals Major Lapses in Safety and Maintenance

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC.NET.AU) has reported that the AirAsia Indonesia Jet QZ8501 that crashed on into the Java Sea on December 28, 2014, had been plagued with unresolved mechanical faults in the twelve months prior to the crash that killed all 162 passengers and crew on board.

The press is reporting that the aircraft involved in the crash had made 78 flights between Perth and Bali with a significant uncorrected mechanical fault that went unaddressed for 12 months prior to the crash.

The revelation has raised serious questions on the safety and reliability of AirAsia Indonesia’s operations and the oversight provided by the Indonesian Transportation Ministry. As a result of the current uproar, there is now a call for AirAsia to be suspended from flying to Australia until such a time as they can successfully undergo an international safety audit.

The Indonesian National Air Safety Committee released its findings on the December 2014 crash in December 2015 in a report that highlighted a broken rudder limiter that was left unrepaired for 12 months before the air tragedy.

Commenting on the crash report, Australian air experts have said that an Australian airline would not have flown with the faulty rudder, let alone operated for 12-months in such a dangerous and deficient condition. A Perth-based aviation expert said: "I believe there's evidence around that some airlines that fly to Australia don't meet international standards and they should be banned. It’s simply not good enough that you've got aeroplanes flying around with potentially catastrophic faults with them."

The final crash report did not blame the crash on the broken rudder limiter, but instead on the flight crew’s inappropriate reaction to an alarm set off by the malfunctioning rudder.

Following the crash, it was also discovered that AirAsia lacked the required flight permita for the route in which the plane crashed into the South China Sea.


Adieu to Kota Kinabalu
AirAsia Axes Bali to Kota Kinabalu Flights in June 2016

Citing poor loads, AirAsia Indonesia has announced they will suspend its three-times-a-week Bali – Kota Kinabalu flights effective June 23, 2016.

The CEO of the Malaysian affiliate of AirAsia – AirAsia Bhd, Aireen Omar said stagnant market growth and low revenues were the basis for the decision to pull the plug on the flight service.

Passengers holding tickets on the service on dates after June 23rd have the option of traveling before June 21st, applying the value to another AirAsia flight or obtaining a full refund.

The AirAsia flights between Bali and Kota Kinabalu commenced service in July of 2013.


Go Sell it on the Mountain!
Kintamani Geopark Slated for Major Overhaul into Becoming a World-Class Tourism Area

The recently installed Regent and Deputy-regent of the Balinese regency of Bangli are demonstrating a commitment to developing the Geopark at Kintamani into a major tourism asset.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Regent Made Gianyar and his Deputy Sang Nyoman Sedana Arta have taken the bold steps of re-organizing small traders at Penelokan and reordering vehicle flows in Kintamani to reduce traffic congestion.

To bring the Geopark to the level of becoming a world-class attraction, Gianyar and Arta have allocated Rp. 100 billion in the 2017 Regency Budget for improvements to the Kintamani Geopark.

The Deputy-Regent, Sedana Arta, told the press on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, “For the development of the Geopark, we will design and transform it to a world standard.”

The Regency’s No. 2 Man-in-Charge said the revamping of the Geopark to an international standard was needed in order to remove the current negative image of Kintamani.

Rp. 33 billion of the total allocation will be used specifically in the community of Penelokan to construct a vertical garden, to purchase the current Sanjaya Restaurant and turn it into a public parking area, and  for the creation of a panoramic lookout. The remaining part of the Rp. 100 billion budget will be used to improve the lower elevation of the Geopark located near the perimeter of Lake Batur.

Saying the Rp. 100 billion budget allocation is only a starting point in improving the Geopark, the Deputy-Regent said additional funds to continually improve the area would be budgeted over the coming years.

Plans are that by 2018 the Penelokan area of Kintamani will become a special tourism area with a dedicated admission gate eqipped with an automated toll system that will only allow access to tourists and local residents.


Overwrought, Stabbed and Shot
Police Release Autopsy Results on French Expat Slain by Police While Being Placed Under Arrest

Beritabali.com reports that Bali’s Provincial Chief of Police. Inspector General Sugeng Priyanto, has released the preliminary autopsy finding for the French National, Amokrane Sabet, killed in an altercation with his officers on Monday, May 2, 2016, when a police and immigration officials came to the Frenchman's home in the Berawa area of Bali to deport him for overstaying his visa.

The autopsy report said the powerfully built French-Algerian and former Mixed Martial Art fighter died from a number of stab wounds caused by a knife he also used to kill one of the arresting officers and that was turned against him in the fatal fight.

Despite a video posted on social media showing Sabet being gunned down in a shower of gunfire, the cause of death is being officially listed as 12 stab wounds from a sharp instrument delivered to his chest and injurying his respiratory tract. Another video, shot earlier, shows Sabet brandishing a knife while pleading for the police to shoot him.

General Priyanto said on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 : “There were 12 stab wounds to the neck that hit that cut his airway that caused respiratory distress. The person who brought the knife was the foreigner (Amokrane). Our analysis is that there was a struggle and with one of our police officers and a wrestling match ensued in which the foreigner died.”

A Balinese policeman Brigadier Putu Sudiarta also died in the fight.

The autopsy was performed by a team of Forensic Specialista - Dr. Dudut Rutyadi, Dr. Ida Bagus Alit and Dr. Kunti of Sanglah General Hospital; members of the Bali Police, and 34 medical students from Udayana University.

In addition to 12 stab wounds, the autopsy revealed 24 firearm wounds caused by rubber bullets located on the man’s chest, back and arms.

No mention was made of a single gunshot wound to Sabet’s head, widely seen in photographs and videos made by bystanders.

When the Bus Gets Busted
Charter Taxi Drivers Demand Prosecutors Sweep Clean Widespread Corruption at Bali Transportation Office

Beritabali.com reports that in the continuing investigation of illegal fees charged to public transportation operators, State Prosecutors have been asked to intensify their efforts, and conduct  an open and thorough expose of illegal practices at the Transportation Office.

The call for a thorough investigative process was made by the chairman of the Association of Freelance Tourism Transport Drivers, I Wayan Suata, on Tuesday, May 3, 2016.

Suata’s organization of independent tourism drivers comprised of 3,500 members is urging State Prosecutors to pursue their investigation to a complete and final revelation, exposing and bring to justice officials of the Bali Transportation Office involved in corruption.

Suata said he prayed that Prosecutors would not succumb to corruption to derail any effort to clean up the Transportation Office. He also threatened State Prosecutors with mass demonstrations by his Association’s members if indications surface suggesting law enforcement officials have failed in their duty to fight corruption.

Suata, who also serves as the chairman of the Badung Regency Charter Transport Bureau at the Land Transportation Organization in Bali (Organda-Bali), remains convinced that the Bali Transportation Office is a corrupt agency.

Suata bemoaned the fact that the Transportation Department has abruptly stopped issuing rented transport permits, supposedly as a response to reports of rampant corruption at the licensing office or, perhaps, as retaliation for the continuing investigation underway from State Prosecutors.

Keeping a Fire at Bay
21 Small Shops at Benoa Bay Destroyed By Early Morning Fire on May 6, 2016

A large fire on Friday, May 6, 2016, devastated and destroyed 13 shops on Jalan Tukad Tuna II inside the Port of Benoa, South Bali.

As reported by NusaBali, the fir began at 6:30 am with authorities attributing the fire on a short circuit in a handphone shop.

Although the damage to shops and merchandise is put in the billion of rupiahs, no injuries are linked to the blaze.

In all, 21 shops were consumed by the early morning fire that happened on a public holiday when most of the shops were closed and unattended. The fire quickly spread from the handphone shop to adjoining businesses.

10 fire trucks from Denpasar and the Port arrived on the scene within 20 minutes after the fire's initial discovery. Because a serviceable fire hydrant was located far from the scene, firefighters were compelled to pump seawater from the nearby ocean to extinguish the blaze. Further difficulties were presented when, due to the absence of shopkeepers, firemen had to forcibly ram their way into the shops in order to fight the fire

The 21 shops were occupied by a small restaurant, a handphone shop and a range of shops selling ships’ gear and supplies.


Daubing Dobson into Prison
Australian Bar Brawler Sentenced to 16 Months in Prison for Attacking Sky Garden Bar Manager

A 53-year-old Australian man, Scott Dobson, has been sentenced to 16-months in prison after being convicted of assaulting a manager of the Sky Garden Restaurant and Nightclub in September 2013.

Found guilty of criminal assault, the sentence was only two months less than the 18 months sought by prosecutors.

In handing down the sentence, the judge found little or no redeeming factors in the defendant's favor and determined the man must serve time in jail.

The Jakarta Post reports that Dobson was found guilty, together with two accomplices, of attacking Kenneth James Wicke, a Canadian manager of the Sky Garden in Kuta after reportedly refusing to pay his bar tab.

Police continue to seek Dobson’s accomplices who were also involved in the attack.

Dobson has told the press he will not challenge his conviction and serve his prison sentence.

Bali Headed for 4.6 Million Foreign Tourists in 2016
Bali by the Numbers: Bali Tourism Arrivals up 15.25% for Q1 2016

Bali foreign tourist arrivals for March 2016 totaled 363,958 a number that is 19.2% higher than arrivals in the same month in 2015.

Seen as the entire quarter covering January –March 2016, Bali arrivals hit 1,090,294.

Projecting forward, if Bali maintains a 15.25% growth rate through the end of 2016, the Island will end the year with a record 4.6 million visitors.

A report of strong tourist arrivals is an anomaly on an island that is suffering a severe downturn in hotel occupancies, quiet restaurants, and sparsely attended attractions. This incongruity is explained, at least in part, by government tourist strategies that seek quantity over quality, focusing on generating visits from Mainland China whose visitors generally spend less and stay for shorter periods of time.



Mainland Chinese tourists now represent a 22.74% market share and have become the number one source of tourist visitors. At the end of Q1 2016 tourists from the Middle Kingdom were up 28.26% year-to-date. Extrapolated to the end of the year, look for tourists from China to Bali to total nearly 900,000.

Australia visitors to Bali have slipped to number two in terms of dominance. Month-on-month, Australian tourist totaled 85,206 in March – an increase of 5.6%. On a cumulative basis, Australian arrivals January-March are stagnating increasing only 1.85% at 241,452. Australian market share stands at 22.15%.

Japan, a country that once dominated Bali arrivals, is now in a distant third place with a meager 5.56% market share. Experiencing something of a recovery, Japanese tourists increased 12.7% in March when compared to the same month one year before. Year on year, Japan arrivals are up 5.56%.

Strongest performances through the end of Q1 2016 have been turned in by: United Kingdom (+56.41%), India (+58.49%), Sweden (+57.42%), Germany (+44.04%), USA (+38.34%), France (+20.84%), Russia (+27.79%) and Canada (+19.69%).

Poor arrival performances for Q1 2016 were from the Philippines (-25.38%), Malaysia (-10.27%), South Korea (-10.02%) and Singapore (-5.09%).




Holy Bat Caves, Robin!
Goa Lawah Bat Cave Seeing to Raise Ticket Price

The management of the iconic Goa Lawah Bat Cave in the Bali Regency of Klungkung is proposing that the price of admission tickets to the religious site be increased.

The treasurer of the management committee for the tourism object, Putu Juliadi, told Radar Bali that the cost of a ticket to visit the site is among the lowest among competing objects in Bali.

“Kerta Gosa is Rp. 12,000, so we are asking that the government increase our ticket price,” said Juliadi.

Currently, adults are charged Rp. 6,000 and children Rp. 4,000 – a tariff set by the government in 2013. Visitors who do not bring a sarong and sash required to be worn by those visiting the site are charged a rental rate of Rp. 10,000.

Juliadi has been told that regional rules on admission prices at tourism object are generally reviewed only once every five years, which means the cost of admission to Goa Lawah should only be reviewed in 2018.

Goa Lawah that is home to a huge colony of bats and pythons is visited by between 75 and 100 visitors each day.

Forty-four and Many More to Come
Griya Santrian Resort in Sanur, Bali Celebrates its 44th Anniversary with guests, team-members, and its Community

The Griya Santrian Hotel – part of the Santrian Group – and one of the first indigenously owned hotels in Sanur Village - celebrated its 44th anniversary on May 1, 2016.

To mark the many years since first opening its doors to the public on May 1, 1972, the Griya Santrian undertook a number of community-based activities to celebrates it long journey and hard-fought leadership position in the Island’s tourism industry.

The general manager of the Griya Santrian, IB Gede Sidharta Putra, said: “The celebration of 44 years of welcoming gues  and Balinese-infused service marks a milestone for both the hotel and the hotel industry. As one of Bali’s tourism icons, the Griya Santrian story encapsulates the development of Bali and tourism in Sanur. This is an important year for us; a time to remember and reflect on the past and to boldly step into the future as one of the best resorts, a fact that was true in 1972 and remains so today.”

From its earliest days the Griya Santrian has been deeply involved in the Sanur Community and efforts to improve the welfare of the people who live there. This has included its role as a founder of the Sanur Village Festival, its dedication to environmental preservation and economic partnerships designed to support the local economy.

The 128-room resort organized four days of anniversary events that encouraged participation by its employees, guests and its neighbors in Sanur. These activities included a blood donor drive on April 28, 2016, and a visit on April 29th to an old folks home where food and essential commodities were delivered. On Saturday, April 30th the employees of the Resort performed a “fun walk” up and down Sanur beach during which they cleaned the beach, created some new coral heads and released baby turtles back into the ocean.

The birthday party came to a close with a party and talent night staged by the management and staff of the hotel.

Nusa Dua and the Indonesian Tourism Development Corporation (formerly BTDC) complex will come alive with the sound of Blues on Saturday, May 28, 2016 with the inaugural appearance of the “Bali Blues Festival.”

A typical Belawan performance brings audiences to their feet screaming for “more.” Belawan is scheduled to perform solos, with his trio and in jam sessions on May 28th.
