Bali's official carrier Air Paradise International has suspended indefinitely its thrice-weekly flights connecting Bali and Seoul, effective September 9, 2004.
Equipment limitations and scheduling issues had reportedly caused passenger delays on the Seoul service. The Airline's management took the step of canceling the service until such a time as aircraft availability increases, allowing the airline to resume service to on the Bali - Seoul sector.
Passengers holding tickets on the Soeul service are being given full refunds.
Air Paradise International continues to operate a fleet of aircraft flying regular services between Bali and 4 major gateways in Australia – Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Garuda Suspends Seoul Flights
The cancellation of the Air Paradise service to Seoul follows the recent suspension of Garuda Indonesia's five times a week service to Seoul.
Fourth Largest Inbound Market
The sudden evaporation of saleable seats between Bali and Seoul would seem to defy market logic and is said to be causing havoc with Korean operators who report strong demand for Bali, particularly among Korean honeymooners. Direct Korean arrival statistic during the first seven months of 2004 for Bali totaled 45,576, making it the fourth largest source of visitors to Bali after the Japanese, Australian and Taiwanese markets.
