Air Paradise Turns Two

Bali's Home-Grown Airline Takes an Entire Week to Celebrate a Milestone.

Admirers and friends of Kadek Wiranatha - the owner of Air Paradise International gathered in force in Bali during the week of February 14, 2005, to wish both the man and his airline the very best as they marked the Carrier's second anniversary.

A Most Remarkable Two Years

When the inaugural flight to Perth first took off in February 2003, sceptics predicting the imminent demise of Bali's first locally owned airline were not hard to find. The challenges of starting an airline just months after the tragic October 2002 Bali bombing to destinations issuing stern travel warning against travel to Bali seemed almost insurmountable.

As time has proven, however, Pak Kadek's unflinching love for his island home and fanatical faith in its people - together with a dogged determination to ease the suffering of the Balines people, have managed to fuel his start-up airline through what must have been extremely difficult early days.

And, as time has also proven, Kadek's enthusiasm for Bali and commitment to establish a unique Balinese standard of in-flight service has proven infectious in the marketplace. In 2004 more than 120,000 people flew his yellow-tailed airline between Bali and Australia.

Only two brief years after its initial take-off, Air Paradise continues to soar to new heights, now operating 4 wide-bodied aircraft flying 14 flights a week between Bali and Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. The Airline has also launched services to Korea and Japan.

What a Party!

More than 300 Australian travel industry figures were flown to Bali to attend various functions held at Gado-Gado, Paparazzi and Double Six - leading night time entertainment venues in Bali also owned by the island's most dynamic entrepreneur.

Now, with a solid team firmly in control of his airline and a constantly growing base of satisfied and loyal customers, we suggest you keep your eyes peeled for an Air Paradise International jet coming soon to an airport near you.

Earning friends and fans, and building air bridges between the world and Bali is what Pak Kadek obviously does best!
