New Zealand to Bali Flights Needed

mini-garuda.jpgOne thing I never knew and that was Garuda Indonesia had stopped flying to Bali straight from New Zealand and Brisbane in 2007. New Zealanders are amongst the nicest people in the world and I say that after spending a year there riding around the islands on a motorbike. Kiwis wanting to visit Bali have to connect through an Australian city. How stupid. Wouldn’t it be far better if the straight flights from the main cities in New Zealand to Denpasar and Jakarta were to be restored, then surely this would significantly contribute to Indonesia`s tourist promotion of Visit Indonesia Year 2008. A while ago there was a company running a scam involving at least 10 unaware people wishing to fly to Bali. The company offered a straight from New Zealand to Bali. In my opinion, Garuda Indonesia would do well to establish straight flights to Bali and this would be advantageous not only to the economy of the country [Indonesia] but also be excellent for businessmen. C’Mon Garuda Indonesia, give it some thought.

    The NZ flight used to stop at Brisbane, then Denpasar,& was always full when i travelled on it
    Did you also know that there are no direct flights from Brisbane to Bali. Queenslanders now have to fly to Sydney or Melbourne, or Caines then Darwin. So if you have any influence with Garuda or Qantas add Brisbane to your campaign

    Hi Kerry Rose,

    Cheers for the info. If I had my way with Garuda then there would be direct flights from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch!.

    In a normal world there would be at least one direct flight a week, Auckland to Denpasar (even if it is via Brisbane). I think it was a plot launched by the executives at Garuda to promote tourism in Thailand Malaysia and Viet Nam that the
    NZ & Brisbane flights were cancelled(incidentally leaving us stuck in Indonesia and in trouble with immigration because we overstayed our visas as a result).The move was apparently because of a shortage of planes and not lack of kiwi customers.
