Indonesia Air Asia to Open Bali Base

Second Indonesian Operational Base to Allow New Flights to Australia, Sarawak and Malaysia

Indonesia AirAsia (IAA) have announced their intention to open an additional operational base in Bali as the next step to establishing a regional presence for the Carrier.

The Chief Officer of IAA, Dharmadi, told Bisnis Indonesia that the new Bali home base will commence operations in late March 2008, serving as a turn around point for new flights planned to Darwin and Perth in Australia.

The new Australian destinations are expected to start operating in September-October 2008, six months after the new home base becomes operational.

The new Australian service are expected to be served by Indonesia AirAsia’s fleet of Airbus A320 and Boeing 737-300 aircraft.

The Bali base is also expected to offer direct flight connections to Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kinabalu.
