Garuda is planning to tap the Hindu pilgrimage market

Garuda Indonesia is planning to launch flights connecting Bali with Mumbai.

According to a report by local news site Radar Bali, the national carrier wants to tap into the large Indian honeymoon and Hindu pilgrimage markets, and may operate charter flights in advance of plans for scheduled departures.

“The Indian market has great potential. There are two strong potential markets in India, those undertaking a honeymoon and those on a religious pilgrimage. The middle to upper classes of India are those that generally go on a religious journey to Bali,” Garuda’s commercial director, Handayani, was quoted saying.

Garuda does not currently operate any flights to India, and no airline flies direct between Bali and India. Earlier this month Garuda commenced flights between Bali and Shanghai.
