Bisnis Bali reports that the chairman of the Bali Tourism Board (BTB), Ida Bagus Nurjaya has called on the government to “open wide the tap” and allow foreign airlines access to Bali if current plans to increase the size of the Island’s tourism sector are to be successful.

According to Nurjaya, the continuing financial problems and safety issues confronting Garuda Indonesia, and the haphazard development of the domestic aviation sector are some of the main factors stunting the growth of national tourism.

The solution at hand, according to the BTB boss is to liberalize access to Bali for foreign airlines. He also cited the heavy demand from certain markets โ€“ such as China, Taiwan, South Korea and Russia, where demand often outstrips seat capacity to Bali.
