(12/23/2006)

The Indonesian language Bali Post reports that Bali's Governor is eager to see the Bali-based airline - Air Paradise International (API) recommence operations and has indicated his willingness to carefully review the possibility of Bali's provincial government becoming an investor in the Company.

Following a meeting on Friday, December 15, 2006 attended by Governor Beratha, API President Commissioner I Made "Kadek" Wiranatha, API Director Oka Semadi, and the Chief of the Bali Tourism Authority Gede Nurjaya Ė the Governor reiterated his long-standing interest in seeing the Island's government become an active participant in an international air carrier operation.

Following that meeting, "Kadek" Wiranatha said: "The Governor is very morally supportive of us (API). In terms of material support, that will however need further study, although in principle the Governor is very interested."

Kadek explained that Bali's government would not be the first to invest in a commercial airline operation. The Governor reportedly told him that any investment in API would be aided by the established existence of a professional management team already in place.

In his comments to the press, Kadek explained how API played a major contributing role in Bali's tourism prior to the second terrorist bombing of October 2005. According to Kadek, in the period between February 2003 and its closure in November 2005, API carried 589,407 passengers each with an average length of stay of 10 days in Bali who he estimated contributed Rp. 6.8 trillion (approximately US$755.6 million) to the Balinese economy.

To Fly Again in March 2007

As reported on balidiscovery.com [See: Bali's Air Paradise to Fly Again in March 2007] API have recently announced their plans to recommence operation in March 2007.

"We ask the prayers of the people of Bali because API will fly again in March 2007," said Kadek.
