In a major shake up of its short-haul international network, Virgin will stop flying from Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth to Bali from March, and instead use Tigerair on those routes, after deciding it is better suited to a no-frills carrier. It puts Tigerair directly up against Qantas' budget offshoot, Jetstar, and AirAsia on the routes to the popular Indonesian tourist destination. Jetstar has the largest market share on Australia-Bail routes, on which it flies new Dreamliner aircraft.

Bali time, more than one and a half hours after the plane touched down on its scheduled flight. Sugiharto Prapto, the commander of the adjoining Ngurah Rai air base, told the Jakarta Globe that none of the passengers or crew on board the Boeing aircraft were hurt in the incident, which began mid-flight with a drunken Lockley trying to enter the cockpit. He said that four Air Force soldiers boarded the plane parked on the airport apron and managed to subdue Lockley, who was seated in the galley at the back of the aircraft.

Indonesia AirAsia X will launch five weekly non-stop flights from Sydney to Bali from October, in a move that will place further pressure on Virgin Australia's troubled international operations. Virgin last week said it would switch its flights from Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth to Bali to low-cost arm Tigerair Australia from March as it looked to return its international operations to profitability over the next two years. For now, Virgin has left its mainline brand on flights from Sydney and Brisbane to Bali but has left open the possibility of switching those to Tigerair in the future. Online travel group Expedia has also launched promotional flight and hotel package deals.
