Virgins with Wings

Oz Virgin Blue Airline Renews Promise of Bali Flights.

(11/18/2002) Flamboyant British businessman, Richard Branson has reiterated his intent to expand his domestic Australian budget air carrier - Virgin Blue into international service in the Austral-Asian region.

Good News for Bali

Repeating a long-standing commitment to make Bali among the first destinations outside Australia that Virgin Blue wishes to serve, Branson was quoted, saying, "I think it is very sad to see that it is now empty of tourists and yet it is just as likely that a bomber could strike anywhere in the world."

In a related development, many Australian travel agents are reporting difficulties in obtaining seat confirmations for flights from Australia's major cities to Bali. Both Garuda Indonesia and Qantas cut back their Bali flights following the October 12th terrorist attack on Bali and the subsequent travel advisory issued by the Australian government directing to its nationals to defer non-essential travel to Bali. That warning was recently down-graded and is no-longer Bali specific.
