Australiaâ€™s Jetstar Increases Bali Flights
Australian airline Jetstar is to double its direct services between Sydney and Bali to four times weekly from October 28, in response to a bounce-back in Australian traveler demand, it said this week.
The additional two weekly A330 services from Sydney will see the budget carrier operating six flights a week between the Australian east coast and Bali.
Jetstar is the low-cost arm of national airline Qantas, which came under takeover speculation earlier this year and which this week was criticized by Australian tourism operators as â€œharmingâ€ Baliâ€™s tourism by not proving more than its currently scheduled two weekly flights to the island.
Hoteliers said many Australians had to wait months for flights to Bali, due to high demand. Qantas said it was accessing the situation.Filed under: The Island
