Bali Looks to the North

Garuda Indonesia Urged to Open a Manado to Bali Service

(3/11/2012) Bisnis Bali reports that Garuda Indonesia is studying the viability of opening direct service connecting Bali and Manado in North Sulawesi.

The General Manager for Garuda Indonesia in Manado, Piktor Sitohang, said that operationally there was no impediment to operating a direct service between the two locales. All that remains is to obtain assurances that the route would be commercially profitable. He went on to say that a minimum average load factor of 70% on such a flight was needed to sustain the service.

The vice-mayor of Manado, Vicky Lumentut, has called on Garuda to open a Manado-Denpasar route in order to develop tourism in North Sulawesi.
