Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 20 July 2009

On Friday, AirAsia launched flights between Perth and Bali. From 19 August 2009, AirAsia will be servicing the Bali-Perth route between Ngurah Rai International Airport and Perth Airport with 2 direct daily flights. Jointly, AirAsia Group has 21 flights weekly to Perth inclusive of one daily direct flight departing from Kuala Lumpur.

Perth is the first Australian destination to be serviced from Indonesia by AirAsia Indonesia and it is the 4th international route operated from the Bali hub after Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Singapore.

Dharmadi, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Indonesia said, Bali is an ideal and exciting choice as it is a prime holiday destination for Australians. With its unique culture, spectacular beaches, water sports activities, Bali needs no introduction to them.

 The number of Australian tourists visiting Bali in the first quarter of 2009 rose 24.85% to 71,970 from 57,647 in the same period last year. Australian tourists accounted for 14.67% of the total number of tourists visiting Bali in the first quarter. Out of the number, 71,199 of the Australian tourists visited Bali via Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar.

We are very keen to position Bali as the gateway to Indonesia and other Asean cities as the airport also offers strong domestic and international connections. Indeed we have recorded an increase of inbound traffic to Bali and other parts of Indonesia from Perth and surrounding Western Australia with the inclusion of this new Perth-Bali service, added Dharmadi.

Perth Airport Chief Executive Officer Brad Geatches said he was extremely pleased that AirAsia was now operating services between Perth and Denpasar.

The introduction of this new route is great news for West Australians who can now expect more competitively-priced flights and greater access to this favourite holiday destination, Mr Geatches said. This new service not only offers great value flights to Denpasar, it also opens up the entire Asia region to travellers who can use Bali as a stop over to other destinations. We expect both our inbound and outbound traveller numbers to continue to grow over the coming months thanks to the new service.
