Less ‘Extras’ the Holiday Season
Fewer Extra Flights to Bali Over Christmas-New Years 2017/2018
The number of “extra flights” scheduled over the Christmas and New Years period 2017/2018 has dropped dramatically when compared to the same period one year ago.
Beritadewata.com quotes the Airport Authority – PT Angkasa Pura whoreported on Wednesday, December 20, 2017, that in 2016 there were 613 requests for extra holiday flights, while in 2017 only 477 extra flight have been requested, a reduction of 22%.
PT Angkasa Pura is unprepared to speculate on why there are fewer requests for extra flights this year, but the perceived view is that the downturn is linked to the ongoing eruption of the Mount Agung volcano and a resulting downturn in Bali visitors.
The current requests for extra flights over the holiday period cover a period from December 18, 2017 until January 18, 2018.
An Angkasa Pura spokesperson said that Bali’s airport continues to operate normally following a 2.5-day temporary closure in late November due to volcanic dust in the upper atmosphere seen as a threat to aviation.
“Many passengers are frightened to fly to Bali because of Mount Agung; frightened that they will be unable to return home if the airport is closed during their visit. In fact, the Government has made all preparations in the event of an airport closure, including free transport overland to the nearest international airport. Passengers do not understand this,” said the Angkasa Pura official.
The reduced number of extra flights to Bali this holiday season will also result in a corresponding reduction of the number of tourists visiting Bali. Statistics compiled from the airport through December 19, 2017 demonstrate a decline in the number of tourists visiting Bali following the late-November airport closure.
On December 19, 2017, a total of 14,123 domestic passengers landed in Bali, a decline of 5.21% when compared to the 14,909 domestic passengers who arrived on the same date in 2016.
The number of departing domestic passengers from Bali’s airport has also declined. On December 19, 2017, a total 14,059 passengers flew out of Bali’s Airport, a number that is 4.03% less than the 14.650 passengers who flew out of Bali on the same date in 2016.
International passengers leaving Bali on that date in 2017 totalled 12,346, down 12% from the 14,116 who flew in 2016.
Arriving international passengers have also decreased. On December 19, 2017, a total of 9.261 passengers arrived, a decrease of 13.73% when compared to the 10.735 foreign passengers who arrived in the same date in 2016.
Total domestic and international passengers coming to Bali declined 8.48 day-on-day for December 19, 2017.

When the President Calls the Shots
Disaster Area Status Lifted For Mount Agung Volcano
Indonesian President Joko Widodo has revoked the Emergency Disaster Status for Mount Agung.
As reported by Metrobali.com, the “disaster status” for the Mount Agung Volcano was nullified by the President in a Presidential Cabinet meeting held in Sanur, Bali on Friday, December 22, 2017. Following the meeting, Widodo declared that the emergency declaration in connection with Mt. Agung was no longer necessary and therefore no longer in effect.
Despite the revocation of the disaster status, President Joko Widodo assured that those who have evacuated the exclusion zone located within a 10-12 kilometer radius of Mount Agung will continue to receive assistance from the Government. “The evacuees will continue to receive good treatment. The (emergency) processes in connection with Mount Agung will come into play if there is an eruption; management steps for evacuation are in readiness. Safety remains the top priority,” explained the President.
Separately, President Joko Widodo affirmed that the Mount Agung Volcano remains at the highest alert status of “Level IV - Awas” with an exclusion zone measuring 8-10 kilometers surrounding the Mountain.
In what appeared to be a correction of recent injudicious statements by a Cabinet Minister suggesting areas outside the exclusion zone were at a “Level II – Waspada” alert level, President Widodo said that the whole of Bali was not under any alert status, but only the small area surrounding the Mount Agung volcano.
While calling on the media to present Bali in a positive light, President Joko Widodo said: “Earlier, we saw that Kuta Beach was very busy with visiting tourists. Later, we went to local cafes that were also busy.”
The President traveled with his Cabinet to Bali to demonstrate to holidaymakers that Bali remains safe and to help Bali resume efforts to meet targeted tourist numbers.
A Man of the People
President Holds Walkabouts and a Cabinet Meeting in Bali to Help Restore Faith in World’s Best Holiday Destination
Indonesian President Joko Widodo came to Bali on Friday, December 22, 2017, to demonstrate to the world that the Island remains a safe holiday destination. Widodo took the occasion to lift the emergency disaster status put in place for the Mount Agung Volcano.
Quoted by NusaBali, the President said during his visit: “We wish to show to tourism and the world that holidaying in Bali remains safe. This is because, the effects of the eruption of Mount Agung extends only to 8-10 kilometres from the peak of the Mountain.”
During an evening Presidential Cabinet meeting that began at 8:30 pm and was attended by 22 ministers, Joko Widodo confirmed that he had been informed by Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika and the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, that Bali remains safe to visit. The President added: “This means that, in fact, tourism areas in Bali have no problem. But, because of the many inaccurate media reports on Mount Agung and travel warning issued by several countries have reduced tourism arrivals. But, beginning today it’s already busy (again).”
The President called on Indonesia’s Foreign Minister and the Minister of Tourism to continue to provide information to friendly nations that Bali is safe to visit. He also asked that coordinating ministers call on their ministerial networks to promote Bali tourism, while providing accurate information on the Island and Mount Agung.
“The Foreign Minister and the Minister of Tourism have to keep giving information that is correct and complete to our Ambassadors assigned to friendly nations so that many tourists from these nations will come to Indonesia, especially to Bali. Our Ambassadors abroad also need to be directed with accurate information should a disaster occur,” said the President.
“I have the concrete hope, especially for the Minister of Tourism and the Coordinating Minister, to invite members of the tourism industry – from PHRI, ASITA and the airlines - to promote Indonesia and Bali until things return to normal and tourism arrivals match our projected targets,” said President Widodo
Bali’s ten new destinations – labeled as “New Bali’s” have been the focus of President Joko Widodo and his team for the past 1.5 years. Whilst in Bali, the President called on the Cabinet to work on making these new destinations become popular tourist spots.
At the Cabinet meeting the President decreed that the emergency decree covering Mount Agung be withdrawn the emergency terminology no longer be used as it incorrectly instills fear in the hearts of potential holidaymakers and prompts other countries to issue travel warnings.
The remove of the “emergency disaster status” for Mount Agung does not alter the current exclusion zone that extends 8-10 kilometers from the Mountain’s crater. Humanitarian aid and logistical supplies will continue to be provided to the some 70,000 people who have evacuated from the exclusion zone.
Prior to convening a cabinet meeting, President Widodo, performed one of his legendary “walkabouts” by removing his shoes and socks and strolling down Kuta Beach where he paused to speak with visiting tourists and posed for an almost stream of "selfies." Accompanied by his staff and a number of Ministers, the President stopped by a local food stall to drink coffee and eat fried bananas.

AirAsia Indonesia Cuts Calcutta
AirAsia Indonesia Announces End to Bali-Calcutta Flight Less than Three Months After Commencing Service
TelegraphIndia.com reports that AirAsia will end its short-lived Calcutta to Bali service effective January 15, 2018.
An AirAsia Indonesia official said in announcing the suspension of service on Friday, 22, 2017: "AirAsia Indonesia will suspend its service between Bali and Calcutta (with a stopover in Kuala Lumpur) as part of a network restructuring aimed at improving operational efficiency. The final date of service from Bali to Calcutta is on January 15 and Calcutta to Bali is on January 16."
AirAsia Indonesia’s Calcutta to Bali four-time-weekly- run was exceptionally short-lived, only commencing service on October 1, 2017
The Calcutta to Bali service included a stopover in Kuala Lumpur.
Aviation observers say the cancellation of the Calcutta service was prompted by the seasonality of holiday travel to Bali and the recent downturn in passengers linked to the eruption of Mount Agung. Other travel operators said the exceptionally low round trip fare level of Rs 20,000 (US$312) was not sustainable.

The Minister is Angry with Bali Hotels
Tourism Minister Angry that Hotels Are Not Discounting Room Rates Enough During Mount Agung Eruption Period
The Indonesia Minister of Tourism, Arief Yahya, is voicing criticism of the Bali Hotel industry’s response during the ongoing eruption of the Mount Agung volcano.
An eruption in late November caused a 2.5-day closure of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport and precipitated a dramatic downturn in tourist arrivals when the Airport resumed operations.
Quoted by Kompas.com, Minister Yahya said on December 21, 2017: "I was angry at that time with Pak Pitana (Deputy Minister for Marketing) regarding hotel discounts. With Mount Agung in Bali in that condition the hotel were still cheap about providing a discount.”
The Minister was disgruntled that hotels in Bali during a time of a sudden business downturn were only prepared to extend 20% discounts. Arief claimed that if hotels in Bali provide large discounts they will automatically reap many customers. Adding: “The more you give, the more you get. Just Google it, for example, the more will be provided for us. I also criticized all the hotels who didn’t give away free rooms when the airport was closed.”
Earlier Yahya had instructed hotel to give compensation and discounts to tourists stranded in Bali when the Airport was closed.
When the Airport was closed several hotels provided free accommodation.
