New Balikpapan to Bali Service Launched
Garuda Offers Better Access Between Indonesian Oil Patch and the Island of Bali.
Garuda Indonesia is continuing its route restructuring program on its domestic route network with the introduction of two new domestic services connecting Yogyakarta and Balikpapan and Denpasar (Bali) and Balikpapan commencing April 23, 2007.
A major gateway to Kalimantan's rich energy and natural resource sectors, Balikpapan will be served with a daily connection to Yogyakarta while the daily Denpasar (Bali) to Balikpapan service will operate with an intermediate stop in Makassar. Both new routes will be flown by Boeing 737-400 aircraft with a capacity for 120 economy and 14 business class passengers.
GA 544 will depart Denpasar each day at 15:35 hours arriving in Balikpapan at 18:10 hours. The return trip on GA545 will leave Balikpapan at 12:00 noon and land in Bali at 14:45 hours.
GA 540 will leave Yogyakarta at 08:45 hours arriving in Balikpapan at 11:25 hours. Meanwhile, GA541 will leave Balikpapan at 18:45 hours landing in Yogyakarta at 19:25 hours.
Reflecting higher passenger loads generally carried by Garuda, the Airline has recently increased to two the number of daily flights between Bali and Yogyakarta.
