The State News Agency Antara reports that the Garuda Indonesia subsidiary Citilink Indonesia has commenced charter flights from Bali to Chongqing Jiangbei, China using the Hang Nadim International Airport in Batam as an intermediate stop.

Commenced on July 26, 2104 the charter service will continue initially until September 30, 2014.

Flights in both directions will include a technical stop at Batam.

The Citilink flight from Denpasar will operate with flight designation QC-8802 departing at 12:35 pm and landing in Batam at 14:05 pm local time. The same flight leaves Batam at 14:35 and continues on to Sinchian, China where it lands at 20:25 pm local time.

The Bali-bound flight QC 8801 departs Chongqing Jiuangbei International Airport at 21:40 pm landing in Batam at 01:30 a.m.. After a short layover, the plane leave Batam at 2:00 a.m. to land in Denpasar at 5:30 a.m..

The remaining charter dates will operate from Bali on August 5, 9, 14, 19, 23 and 28. The flight dates from Bali in September are 2, 6, 11, 16, 20, 25 and 30.

The flights will be operated with a brand new Airbus A-320 owned by Garuda Indonesian Airlines.

The Hang Nadmin International Airport in Batam commenced 24-hour operations in May 2014.

Plans are for other Indonesian airlines, including the Lion Air Group, to use Batam as an air hub for the western region of the Country.

To date, international flights from Batam have been limited to Malaysian flights flown by Malindo Air and Firefly. The charter flight operated by Citilink will be the first international flights from Batam to a destination outside Malaysia.

In the past a number of international flight destined to Australia used Batam, but those flights no longer operate.

Lion Air Group has announced plans to fly to destinations in East Asia and the Middle East from a hub in Batam.
