AirAsia Indonesia Cuts Calcutta

AirAsia Indonesia Announces End to Bali-Calcutta Flight Less than Three Months After Commencing Service

(12/24/2017) TelegraphIndia.com reports that AirAsia will end its short-lived Calcutta to Bali service effective January 15, 2018.

An AirAsia Indonesia official said in announcing the suspension of service on Friday, 22, 2017: "AirAsia Indonesia will suspend its service between Bali and Calcutta (with a stopover in Kuala Lumpur) as part of a network restructuring aimed at improving operational efficiency. The final date of service from Bali to Calcutta is on January 15 and Calcutta to Bali is on January 16."

AirAsia Indonesia’s Calcutta to Bali four-time-weekly- run was exceptionally short-lived, only commencing service on October 1, 2017

The Calcutta to Bali service included a stopover in Kuala Lumpur.

Aviation observers say the cancellation of the Calcutta service was prompted by the seasonality of holiday travel to Bali and the recent downturn in passengers linked to the eruption of Mount Agung. Other travel operators said the exceptionally low round trip fare level of Rs 20,000 (US$312) was not sustainable.
