The Devolution of Darwin as a Destination

AirAsia to Ax Bali-Darwin Route Effective January 28, 2018

(12/17/2017) ABC.net.au reports that AirAsia has announced that they will end its Bali-Darwin route effective January 28, 2018.

After that date, the only airline flying between Bali and Darwin is the Australian carrier Jetstar.

AirAsia announced that the decision to terminate its Darwin to Bali flights was part of a cost-saving restructuring plan by the Airline needed to improve operational efficiency.

AirAsia announced that people holding bookings on the Bali-Darwin service after January 28, 2018 are welcome to change their booking to a new date or receive a full refund.

The Northern Territory Tourism Minister, Lauren Moss, said the Government was disappointed with AirAsia’s decision blaming the eruption of Mount Agung as an underlying factor

Meanwhile, Opposition Leader Gary Higgins is calling on the NT Government to meet with AirAsia and discuss the flight termination that he sees as detracting from Northern Territory trade and business.

Jetstar continues to operate its Bali to Darwin service.
