The Hong Kong-based carrier Cathay Pacific (CX) have announced their intentions to increase from 7 to 11 times each week the number of times they fly from Hong Kong to Bali.
Comments made to the Press by CX's country manager for Indonesia, Richard Reed, indicate that the airline is confident that tourist numbers to Bali will continue to improve over the coming months allowing the supplemental services to be introduced sometime between July and October of 2006.
Speaking to the Jakarta Post Reed said: "Although the increase in frequency is still a plan, our sales teams from Japan and Korea assure us that so far things are looking positive."
"Last month, we were 14 to 15 percent above our revenue target in Indonesia . . . We are currently the third-most profitable airline in the world despite being ranked 32nd in terms of most passengers carried," Reed said.
Cx also operates flights between Jakarta and Surabaya to Hong Kong, the hub of its operations, supported by 95 aircraft.
