In response to increasingly strong demand from the West Australian holiday market for airline seats to Bali, Garuda Indonesia has announced that they will increase seat capacity from Perth to Denpasar commencing in March 2007.
The move follows a doubling of the Airline's capacity to Indonesia in December last year, when daily services to Jakarta were introduced to supplement the existing daily Bali services.
From March 1, 2007, three of the existing Jakarta services will be redirected to Bali in order to meet the strong demand for the popular holiday destination.
The additional Bali flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, with evening departures times from Perth complimenting the daily morning flights, providing even greater flexibility to Perth holidaymaker.
The direct Jakarta services depart on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, also with an evening departure time.
The extra inbound flights depart Bali around 11.00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, arriving in the early hours of the following morning. Jakarta flights depart Cengkareng Airport at 9.30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, also arriving early hours of the following morning.
While timings will vary slightly, days of operation will remain the same when new Northern Hemisphere Summer Schedules take effect on 25 March.
All services from Perth to Indonesia are operated with Boeing 737-800NG aircraft which, from February, has been newly configured to offer both Executive Class and Economy.
"The re-establishment of a business class product from Perth means that this premium service is now available from all Garuda Indonesia’s Australian ports including Darwin," said the Airline's Regional Manager, South West Pacific, Suranto Yitnopawiro.
