The Indonesia arm of AirAisa (IAA) have announced their intention to operate direct flights between Denpasar and Darwin commencing October 2010. The service connecting Bali to Australia's northwest will take up routes recently abandoned by the Indonesian national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia.

As reported in, the President Director of IAA, Dharmadi, said the new service would operate four times a week using Airbus A320 aircraft with a capacity of 180 passengers.

Explaining his airlines decision to fly the new route, Dharmadi said the Denpasar-Darwin route can be flown in just 2 hours, well within the 5 hour flight range of the A 320. Final approval to permit flight operations over the new route, now rests with civil aviation authorities in Jakarta and Canberra. IAA currently operates flights to Australia on the Denpasar-Perth, Western Australia route.

If approved, operations by IAA between Bali and Darwin will place the Indonesia airline in direct competition with JetStar Australia who also operate this route using A320 equipment.

Dharmadi told that the current twice-weekly service is averaging passenger loads above 90%, primarily comprised of Australia tourists.

IAA is targeting to convert their entire armada to A320 aircraft, bringing to 14 the total number of planes in their fleet by the end of November 2010.

49% of IAA is owned by AirAsia Berhad Malaysia.
