With the issuance of travel advisories for Indonesia and Bali from numerous nations and the resulting sudden decrease in demand for air seats to Bali, a number of airlines are temporarily reducing services to Bali.
Singapore Airlines (SIA) continue to operate 4 daily non-stop flights between Bali and Singapore. A fifth service, added during the October 14-22 period, to meet the surge demand for exodus seats from Bali has now been discontinued.
Qantas (QF) has announced a redeployment of equipment in the face of reduced Bali demand and the increased demand for other destinations in the region.
QF will continue to operate four Sydney-Jakarta and two Perth-Jakarta return flights per week; offer two Boeing 767 Sydney-Denpasar return services a week from November - down from four return services operated prior to the October 12th tragedy; operate one weekly return Boeing 737 Perth-Denpasar service flight each week from December, increasing to two services a week in January; and cancel the weekly Melbourne-Denpasar service.
Cathay Pacific Airways
Cathay Pacific (CX) have cut 3 of their normal 10 weekly flights between Hong Kong and Bali.
Garuda Indonesia, (GA) although reporting drops in passenger uplifts from both Europe and Australia of as much as 60-70 % following the bombing, has not yet made any formal announcement on flight reductions.
