More international airlines are asking permission to return to Bali

An increasing number of airlines are expressing interest in resumption of activities in Bali after a two-year break.

According to Bali Governor Vayana Koster, at least one international airline will resume operations on the island this week.

“On February 16, Singapore Airlines will depart from Singapore to Bali with a large number of passengers,” he said in a statement Sunday.

Singapore Airlines plans to operate daily flights from Singapore to Bali from this date.

PT Angkasa Pura I, the airport’s management company, confirmed this Australian low-cost carrier Jetstar has also filed a request resume flights to Bali.

According to Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiago Uno, Jetstar is likely to resume direct flights to Bali soon.

At the moment, Jetstar has postponed the start of flights to Bali for “Monday, March 14 from Melbourne and Tuesday, March 15 from Sydney,” – said a spokesman for the airline.

The Governor of Bali, on the other hand, is confident that this and other airlines will resume operations.

“I hope there will be no new obstacles,” the governor said.

Garuda Indonesia is also working to restore the Tokyo Narita-Bali route, while Batik Air, an Indonesian low-cost carrier, is also looking to connect Singapore and Bali.

Dates have not yet been confirmed, said PT Angkasa Pura I Stakeholder Relations Manager Taufan Yudhistyra.

Meanwhile, flights to Bali and nearby destinations are cheaper than ever. However, experts warn that if demand resumes, prices will inevitably rise.

For example, Australians who book discounts on early trips abroad can get flights to Bali for just $ 250 one way.

“As competition between airlines continues to intensify, flight discounts and additional bandwidth – among other benefits – must continue to materialize,” said Webjet CEO David Galt. More international airlines are asking permission to return to Bali
