Hong Kong Express and Virgin Blue Planning to Begin Bali Flights.
(9/8/2008) The Jakarta Post quotes Heru Legowo, the General Manager of the Bali Airport Authority (PT Angkasa Pura I), as announcing that two new airlines are planning to land in Bali before the end of the current year.
Legowo said: "The two airlines are Hong Kong Express based in Hong Kong and Virgin Blue in Australia."
Hong Kong Express is set to commence four flight each week between Hong Kong and Bali on September 11, 2008.
Virgin Blue will commence 11 weekly flights to Bali later this year from several Australian ports of call.
According to The Jakarta Post, the introduction of the two new international airlines will bring to 26 the number of international airlines flying to Bali.
Both the People's Republic of China (which includes its Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong) and Australia represent two of the fastest growing source markets for Bali Tourism.
