Flashback: Air Paradise

Air Paradise commenced flights to Brisbane on the 2nd December 2004 operating twice weekly services (TH/SU) on the Denpasar - Brisbane - Denpasar route. Initial flight loadings were very positive with most outbound flights almost full. A mixture of aircraft operated the (AD064/065 0840/1000) service including Airbus A310s and A300s. All Air Paradise flights were suspended on 24th November 2005 after a downturn in bookings after the terrorist attack in Bali on 1st October 2005. Below are some pictures of the inaugural flight and aircraft seen in Brisbane.
