Air New Zealand is to launch a twice weekly
service between Auckland and Denpasar Airport in Bali, Indonesia.
The Boeing 767-300 service will operate
seasonally over the peak demand period of June to October.
Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Rob Fyfe
says Bali is already a popular destination for Kiwis and the
non-stop service will now make it even more accessible.
“Our flight time of eight and a half hours is a significant
improvement on the indirect services offered by competitors that
can involve long layovers and a total journey time of at least 14
and sometimes more than 24 hours,” Mr Fyfe said. “We’ll be offering our
flexible and popular ‘Seats to Suit’ fare structure on the Bali
route with great pricing and arrival and departure times to be
announced closer to the on-sale date of 23 February.”
The inaugural flight
will depart on Wednesday, 20 June 2012, subject to government and
regulatory approvals. The Boeing 767-300 has 24 Business Class and
204 Economy Class seats.
Air New Zealand last
operated services between Auckland to Bali in the 1990s using a
Boeing 767-200 aircraft.
