Numerous Changes to Flight Schedules

Post October 12 Bombing, Many Airlines Reduce Bali Flights.

(10/28/2002) With the issuance of travel advisories for Indonesia and Bali from numerous nations and the resulting sudden decrease in demand for air seats to Bali, a number of airlines are temporarily reducing services to Bali.

Singapore Airlines

Singapore Airlines (SIA) continue to operate 4 daily non-stop flights between Bali and Singapore. A fifth service, added during the October 14-22 period, to meet the surge demand for exodus seats from Bali has now been discontinued.

Qantas

Qantas (QF) has announced a redeployment of equipment in the face of reduced Bali demand and the increased demand for other destinations in the region.

QF will continue to operate four Sydney-Jakarta and two Perth-Jakarta return flights per week; offer two Boeing 767 Sydney-Denpasar return services a week from November - down from four return services operated prior to the October 12th tragedy; operate one weekly return Boeing 737 Perth-Denpasar service flight each week from December, increasing to two services a week in January; and cancel the weekly Melbourne-Denpasar service.

Cathay Pacific Airways

Cathay Pacific (CX) have cut 3 of their normal 10 weekly flights between Hong Kong and Bali.

Garuda Indonesia

Garuda Indonesia, (GA) although reporting drops in passenger uplifts from both Europe and Australia of as much as 60-70 % following the bombing, has not yet made any formal announcement on flight reductions.
