After terminating flights to Bali in the 1990s, Air New Zealand is poised to resume flights between Auckland and Denpasar on a seasonal basis.
Scheduled to operate during the peak season of June-October, the twice-weekly flights commence on June 20, 2012, using Boeing 767-300 configured to carry 228 passengers.
Rob Fyfe, chief executive officer of Air New Zealand, is confident the new service will be popular with the public, saying, “our flight time of eight and a half hours is a significant improvement on the indirect services offered by competitors that can involve long layovers and a total journey time of at least 14 and sometimes more than 24 hours.”
The new service is subject to government and regulatory approval.
