2 September 2014

Garuda Indonesia has started using Airbus A330 aircraft on their daily services between Bali and Perth, replacing the previous Boeing 737-800s on that route.

The first service was operated on Monday 1 September 2014 by Airbus A330-300 PK-GPE, which arrived in Perth from Denpasar (Bali) as flight GA728 at 10:56pm.

The aircraft departed back to Denpasar the next morning (Tuesday 2 September 2014) as flight GA727, getting airborne from runway 03 at 7:43am.

Although the service is normally to be operated by A330-300 aircraft, they will also be using A330-200s on some services.
