Indonesian LCC Citilink will launch flights from Perth to Bali from 28 October 2019 using an A320.

Shame about the timings on the return (leaving DPS at 1.10am and arriving at 4.50am).

Doesn't parent company GA also fly that route? (As well as PER-CGK)
Guess they want to compete with JQ and Indonesia Air Asia. And Batik of course.
Seems a strange decision.

Is it really that strange, QF and JQ both fly daily SYD-DPS return on wide bodies leaving within 10 minutes apart each way.

I'm surprised QF can't make a PER-DPS flight on a 738 profitable. There has to be a market for it.

I have flown Citilink a few times, they are pretty good for a LCC. I generally only fly Garuda or Citilink.

NB. on website they say a golf bag is free inclusion, but on checkin they will ask you to handover 300,000rp (or 200). YMMV, be prepared to show them the website baggage page.

QF wouldn't be able to compete with the JQ MAX fares on PER-DPS..... unless they used a widebody.

In what sense? Cost? I just picked some cheap dates on J*. Max return fare is $543. Why couldn't QF compete with this? QF can do PER-SIN return for less than that. DPS is much closer.

Look at the flex fares that QF charge on PER-SIN for comparable rates (ie 50 SC each way). These are normally well in excess of $1000 round trip.

Early requalification is happy wandering

GA now fly a 737-800 in place of the a330. That came as a nasty shock to the system, especially as air fares seem to have also dropped from what we booked a few months ago. This is probably as a result of Citilink coming

Looks like they don't have approval yet as no seats are available for any day from 28 Oct - March 2020
