The National Carrier Garuda Indonesia is bullish on tourism between Bali and Perth, Western Australia. So bullish, in fact, that they've just scheduled an additional 5,483 seats on 33 supplementary flights between the two destinations effective between June 18 and August 1, 2004.

Buoyed by statistics that show an increase of 2,404 Australians from Western Australian visited Bali in the first quarter of 2004, Rob Moro, Sales Manager of Garuda in Western Australia said, "We have taken a punt by providing 5,483 extra seats for West Australians in a six week period. With such a short lead-in it will be a challenge to fill these flights, but school holidays fall within this period and this always produces very strong loads."

Nor did Mr. Moro rule out the possibility of maintaining some or all of the extra capacity on a permanent basis if passenger loads justify such a move.

One Place Where the Oz Dollar is Strong

Australian visitors to Indonesia and Bali are enjoying a windfall as their dollar now buys more Indonesian Rupiahs than ever before. Explained Moro, "The Australian dollar is worth four times what it was 20 years ago in Bali, so bargains abound. Back in the 1980s Aussies typically received about 1000-1500 Rupiahs for their dollar, compared with around 6000 today."

Bargain All Round

Inexpensive flights, bargain priced hotels and affordable food and beverage at outstanding restaurants are proving irresistible to Australian travelers. 7 night packages including flights, taxes, accommodation and a full breakfast each day starting from just AU$ 780 are just some of [Fantastic Travel Values ex Perth] now on offer.
