More Seasonal Bali Flights By Air New Zealand In 2013

Media Release | 15 October 2012

Auckland Airport welcomes further seasonal Bali flights

More Seasonal Bali Flights By Air New Zealand In 2013 Will Help Develop Burgeoning Indonesian Market

Auckland Airport today welcomed the announcement by Air New Zealand that they will operate a 2013 season of direct services to Bali between June and October, following a successful 2012 season.

Glenn Wedlock, General Manager Aeronautical Commercial for Auckland Airport, said, “This is great news and will help to grow better connections between New Zealand and Indonesia, a market that is rapidly growing in importance for our tourism and trade relationships. It’s a very positive sign that Air New Zealand is showing confidence in the market and is keen to build on their 2012 seasonal Bali service.”

Mr Wedlock said, “We see Indonesia as not just a great place for Kiwis to travel for their holidays, but also a key inbound market for our tourism industry. Auckland Airport has a number of initiatives to better understand the Indonesian traveller, what motivates them and what sorts of things they are looking for in a holiday destination.

“We are also looking at investing in building access, relationships and product innovation now to deliver great outcomes in growth markets such as Indonesia and India. Indonesia’s economy is growing so rapidly that according to Citibank it will be the world’s fourth largest by 2040. It is one of our nearest markets and its GDP is already ahead of Australia our biggest travel market. So we have an incredible opportunity to grow Indonesia into a market worth in excess of $100 million to our visitor economy.”

Global tourism trends now indicate an increasing number of travellers from “emerging” markets as the world economy shifts towards Asia and Auckland Airport through its Ambition 2020 programme is seeking to drive joint industry investment programmes of over a million dollars in the next 18 months to ensure New Zealand is well positioned against the competition.
