AirAsia is preparing to launch its latest
international route with direct daily flights between Perth and
the exotic Indonesian island destination of Bali.
Seats for the new route are now
available from IDR429,000 (A$139 nett). For Indonesia, the fare
quoted is excluding airport tax and administration fees, for one
way travel only. For Australia, the fare includes airport tax and
administration fees, for one way travel only. The booking period is
until 10 May, 2009 for travel between 17 July 2009 and
31 January 2010.
The route will be serviced by AirAsia Indonesia, an
associate of AirAsia. The Bali – Perth service is the 5th
international route operated from the Bali hub after Kuala Lumpur,
Johor Bahru, Bangkok and Singapore.
AirAsia Indonesia is the second Indonesian airline to pass the
strict regulations of the Foreign Airline Operating Certificate of
Australia. This means the airline has met the requirements of the
Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASAA), demonstrating
AirAsia’s high safety standard.
Dharmadi, CEO of AirAsia
Indonesia, said, “Education is the main drive for closer Indonesia-Australia ties
with approximately 19,000 Indonesian students studying in various
parts of Australia. There are a large number of Indonesian
communities living in Perth, so be it to renew social and family
ties, a vacation or pursuing academic purposes, we anticipate that
this new route will do very well.”
The new route will be
served by AirAsia’s brand new Airbus A320 aircraft.
