3 Airlines Considering Bali to Baubau Flights

Bali and Beyond Tourism to Be Augmented by Direct Bali to Baubau in Southeast Sulawesi.

(8/28/2010) The national news agency Antara says that three Indonesian domestic air carriers are eyeing flight operations between Denpasar (Bali) and Baubau (Southeast Sulawesi).

Mz Amirul Tamin, the Mayor or Baubau, says that his office has already established agreements with three airlines: Lion, Wings and Express Air. According to Amirul: "I have already consulted with several air companies who are eager to fly the route such as Lion, Wings and Express Air. Of course thier goal is to ease the journeys of foreign tourists wishing to come to Baubau."

The establishment of a direct air link between Bali and Baubau would reduce travel time, eliminating the need for the current intermediate stop in the Southeast Sulawesi provincial capital of Kendari.

Amirul also told the press that the realization of the new air service to Bali will occur at the latest before the end of the current year.

Seeking to increase tourism to Baubau, Amirul is aggressively seeking additional air connections to Makassar and Mamuju in addition to current air connections to Surabaya and Ambon.
