Garuda Indonesia confirmed on Sunday, October 2, 2005 that it is maintaining full flight schedules between Australia, New Zealand and Bali following Saturday's October 1, 2005, bomb blasts on the resort island.
In addition to operating all flights according to existing schedules to assist the thousands of Australians and New Zealanders affected during the school holiday season, the airline has advised that it will keep under constant review passenger demand and aircraft availability over the coming days as the situation develops.
Garuda Indonesia also announced that passengers may defer or cancel without penalty on Australian and New Zealand flights that have been booked for departures up to and including October 16, 2005. For departures beyond that date, however, the situation will be reviewed over the coming weeks.
Passengers already in Bali may also, without penalty, are eligible to rebook early return flights with Garuda on a seat availability basis.
Passengers are advised to contact their travel agents for information about hotels, tours and other ground arrangements or to amend existing bookings.
