Following the suspension of service between Bali and Adelaide in the wake of the October 12thbombing, Garuda Indonesia have declared their intention to recommence flights between Adelaide and Denpasar (Bali) in April. From April to June Garuda will operate twice a week flying on Tuesdays and Fridays, increasing to three times a week from June with an additional flight on Sundays.
Garuda will operate Airbus A330 on the Adelaide – Bali route with a capacity of 42 business class and 251 economy class seats.
Howard Noble, Sales Manager of Garuda Indonesia in South Australia, says enquiries about travel to Indonesia had grown steadily in recent weeks, and forward projections suggest strong demand for the first flights from Adelaide. "This speaks volumes about the enduring attraction of the destination and the special bond that still exists between Bali and holiday-making South Australians," said Mr. Noble.
Prior to October 12th Bali was clearly the number one overseas destination for Australian enjoying a 13.14% share of the overall short-stay overseas holiday market, or around 300,000 visitors per year. Around 17,000 of these were from South Australia.
