Austasia Calls it 'Quits' to North West Oz

(4/19/2004)

Austasia Airlines have announced the termination of its weekly flight service between Bali and Broome and Karratha in north west Australia, effective April 24, 2004.

The new flight service inaugurated on March 5, 2004, lasted just short of two months before the owners and operators decided to cancel the service. Managing Director of Austasia Airlines, Ed Turner, said that despite early, positive indications, the level of passengers traveling on the week-to-week basis from the region did not justify the continuation of the international connection from Bali. According to Turner, "the decision was also prompted by government restrictions on the carrying of freight inbound and outbound and the extra charges being imposed for Customs and Quarantine clearances that made the flight unviable."

"It has been difficult to make the decision, but it was the only responsible action to take. The current bookings up to July are so low the company would have incurred enormous losses." explained Turner.

Passengers Protected

The Airline has assured that all passengers will be taken care of by Austasia Airlines. Those passengers who have purchased tickets for future travel will receive full refunds and those who are holding a return flight to either Australia or Bali after the April 24 shutdown will be placed on alternative flights at the Airline's expense.

Austasia will continue to operate other flights between Christmas Island (Australia) and Indonesia.
