Aussie tourists streaming back to Bali sunshine

TWO bombings, drug arrests and debate about air safety in Indonesia have failed to deter Australian tourists.

It seems Bali is back.

According to Garuda Indonesia, flight schedules between Sydney and Bali that added 3000 seats to the route have been a resounding success and its new Sydney flight is recording average loading of 90 per cent.

The airline's high load factors reflect a rise of more than 50 per cent to 85,860 in the number of Australians visiting Bali in the first half of the year. The record, 267,500, was set in 2004.

Bali is Australia's fourth most popular holiday destination behind New Zealand, Thailand and the US.
