Garuda Plans to Establish Bali Air Hub

Bali Just Got Closer! Garuda to Establish an International Satellite Hub in Bali.

(11/26/2001) Garuda Indonesia has announced plans to make Bali's Denpasar airport its primary international flight hub, rendering the airline's Jakarta Sukarno-Hatta Airport to the secondary status of their flight base serving mostly domestic destinations.

Some 21 international routes are currently flown by Garuda from Denpasar's Ngurah Rai airport. It's expected that this latest decision will allow more international direct connections to Bali from Europe, avoiding the Jakarta stopovers that have proven unpopular with many of the airline's international Bali-bound passengers.

The formalization of Denpasar as an international hub will eventually necessitate the basing of 200-flight crew in Bali.
