THE Sheraton is offering packages at two hotels in Indonesia, valid until December 20. At the Sheraton Lagoon in Nusa Dusa on Bali, cost is US$290 (HK$2,240) for two nights including full breakfasts, airport transfers and other extras. At its Sheraton Senggigi Beach, about 30 minutes from Bali at Lombok, the cost is US$160. The group has taken over a second hotel on Bali, the 369-room Indah resort. Contact Sheraton reservations on 739-3535. A NEW company, Union Express, has been established to take over some of the activities handled by Wallem Airways, which has closed its airline general sales agency activities. These include Air Seychelles, Air UK, Lan-Chile, Mexicana and Sabena. Contact Union Express on 866-8826, fax 866-7722. FOR those with relatives flying New Zealand-Europe, travellers can fly via Hongkong all the way on Cathay Pacific. The fares are first and business class to the UK (about one third below full prices), and special fares to Germany and the UK (at less than half). But there are conditions, such as no stopover apart from Hongkong. Both are available through any IATA/BSP travel agency. NEW ski holiday packages for New Zealand booked out of Sydney might be cheaper than rates in Hongkong. One costs A$849 (HK$4,560) and includes Sydney-Christchurch fare, six nights hotel, transfers, lift tickets and other extras. Book through Mount Cook Line Ski Holidays, phone (61-2) 929-8388, fax (61-2) 925-0279. BRITISH Asia Airways is operating twice weekly to Taipei, leaving midday on Tuesday and Sunday. Contact British Airways on 868-0303. THE Puerto Azul beach hotel has a convention package from Manila for one night, including room, buffet breakfast, two set meals and two snacks for 2,647 pesos (HK$810) a single. There must be at least 20 participants. Contact its partner hotel in Manila, the Silahis International, on (63-2) 571373, fax (63-2) 597074. BRITISH Airways has introduced add-on fares for parts of Europe at discounted prices, but conditions detract from the offer. Travellers need to make at least three flights in Europe in a three-month period, but each time returning to the UK for the next flight. Prices vary; London-Paris, for example, is GBP45 (HK$535) one-way, almost two-thirds off the full price. But with many other discount fares on this route, this is about 50 per cent cheaper. Contact British Airways on 868-0303. THE Meridien in Phuket is selling a two-night stay including airport transfers, full breakfast daily, beach bag and other extras, for 5,720 baht (HK$1,750) for two, or 4,960 baht single. Valid until October 31. Phone the hotel on (66-76) 340480/5, or fax (66-76) 340479. FREQUENT flier programme news: Passengers on the Northwest plan can earn an intra-Asia flight for 16,000 kilometres, instead of 32,000. This could be earned from a round-trip Hongkong-San Francisco. Airlines, realising the programmes may not bring the customer loyalty they are seeking, are giving bonuses for those who earn more kilometres in a given period. Pan Pacific has joined Air New Zealand's programme. One night earns 50 points. Compiled by Travel Database, GPO Box 12761, Hongkong. Fax 407-4620.
