The Devolution of Darwin

Garuda Says 'Farewell' to Darwin after 28 Years.

(4/18/2009) Despite record-setting performance for Australian visitors to Bali, Garuda Indonesia has announced that they will cease all air service to the Northern Territory capital of Darwin with immediate effect.

Garuda commenced flying between Bali and, Darwin in 1980 and just prior to its decision to withdraw its Darwin service, was operating a thrice weekly service.

Travel industry speculation is that Garuda found the Darwin-Bali sector saturated by Jetstar's daily flight schedule operated with and Airbus had created a situation where full-service Garuda could not effectively compete.
