DJ151 SYD-DPS 1200-1650 Friday

Reports also suggest Pacific Blue has applied for traffic rights to extend its Perth - Bali flights onto a 2nd Asian port. It is known this will not be Singapore but the exact location is unknown. Flights will operate PER-DPS-XXX-and return. These will obviously connect to the flights arriving from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane offering a one stop connection from Australia to South East Asia.
