The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has issued a warning against travel to Indonesia, including Bali, following the July 17 bombings in Jakarta. In a statement, the reissued travel advice for Indonesia reads: "We advise you to reconsider your need to travel to Indonesia, including Bali, at this time due to the very high threat of terrorist attack. "On 17 July 2009, terrorists detonated bombs at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and the JW Marriott Hotel in Jakarta. Australians were among those killed and injured. "There is a possibility of further terrorist attacks in Jakarta and elsewhere in Indonesia, including Bali." Despite the fresh warning, airline Garuda Indonesia will still launch direct flights from Melbourne and Sydney next month. According to Garuda NSW sales manager Kerry Timms, no one had cancelled their flights to Jakarta.
