Indonesian Airline Batavia Air has cancelled 80 scheduled direct flights from Bali to Hangzhou, China.

News reports in the Indonesian National News Agency Antara and a confirmation by a representative of Batavia Air in Hangzhou have confirmed the cancellations that will disrupt the travel plans of thousands of passengers already holding confirmed tickets on the proposed new flight service.

Flights have been cancelled through February 4, 2013, with further announcements expected in the interim.

Batavia Air has had an established schedule between Jakarta and Guangzhou. In January 2012, Batavia Air formally applied for permission to open a new route between Bali and Hangzhou to the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation.

The Commercial Director of Batavia Air, Sukirno Sukrana, told the press that his company has yet to receive a formal response to their application to fly the new route with Airbus A320-200 aircraft configured with 220 economy seats.

Meanwhile, representatives for the Indonesia Ministry of Transportation say the blame for the delay in responding to Batavia Air’s permit request rests with the Chinese government.

Djoko Murjatmodjo, spokesman for the Ministry of Transportation, said: “Based on the explanation received (from the Chinese government), there are several documents which must still be submitted by Batavia Air."

Batavia Air’s plans are to fly three times each week between Bali and Hangzhou.
