Air Paradise, a new air carrier owned by Bali businessman Kadek Wiranatha, is the latest casualty of the tragic bomb blast that shook Bali and the world on October 12th.
Scheduled to commence service between the cities of Perth and Melbourne in Australia and the island of Bali on October 27, 2002, a decision was made to delay the airline's launch until further notice as the result of the Bali bomb attack.
According to the operators, some 10,000 advance sale tickets had been purchased by holidaymakers taking advantage of the bargain fares offered in connection with the commencement of service with an Airbus 310-300 aircraft. All passengers holding tickets are now being issued with full refunds.
Air Paradise promises to revisit their new air service once the effects of the Bali bomb blast on passenger flows between Australia and Bali become clear.
In a related development, both Garuda Indonesia and Qantas, the other air carriers flying to Bali from Australia, have promised to refund all holiday flights without penalty for passengers wishing to defer or cancel their Bali holidays.
